What many hotel managements don't get these days is that along with the choice of 17 different types of eggs you can choose for your breakfast, what the travelling business person or giraffe needs from a hotel is a functioning, reliable, uncontested and free wifi as part of the package. It's not longer good enough to pretend to have a... More

Stayed here for the weekend. Such friendly and helpful staff. Couldn't do enough for you. Food was excellent in the restaurant and breakfast was superb. Only fault I have is no lift and we were on the 3rd floor which I didnt check before booking...my own fault. Bathroom appears to have been recently renovated and the size of the delux... More

Stayed Saturday 23rd May. I have never stayed in a hotel where the staff have been as friendly, they were just excellent. The superior twin room (on the first floor) was large and comfortable. The problem with the hotel has been mentioned before, there is no lift. I stupidly did not read Trip Adviser before I booked or I would... More

We stayed for one night at the end of a lakes district visit. The hotel itself has a lovely charm. However the room was tiny, our door into the room didn't fully open due to catching on the carpet, the bathroom was functional but I found the shower to be incredibly slippery. The walls must've been paper thin as you... More

I was put up here by work for 4 nights, it was lovely. The room and bathroom were a decent size (with a bath and not just a shower) it was absolutely spotless and cleaned to a high standard every single day. The food, oh the food! Even if you are in Workington and staying somewhere else I definitely recommend... More
