We had booked the Seacote Hotel, which was a disaster, so within 15 minutes of getting the keys to the room, we phoned several places for accommodation for that Saturday Night. The Melbreak Hotel was able to take us, on first approach it looks a very inviting and lovely hotel, just off the main road, with a conservatory on the... More

Stopped at lunch time for something to eat when travelling across to Whitehaven. The staff, restaurant and quality of food was lovely. Great choice of food and beer for a very reasonable price. If I lived over this way I'd definitely come again!

By far, in my Cumbrian experiences, this hotel is the best value for money regardless of it being 10 minutes or so West of Keswick. As returning customers we were offered a free cream tea on arrival and (as we found last year) the staff were fantastic and very efficient. The room was spacious, very clean with good size TV...

Stayed for 3 nights 15,16 &17 August. This is a small family run hotel and they work really hard to ensure everything is just right for the guests. The rooms are not attached to the main part but just across the court yard. The room was clean and had a large bathroom with a sunken bath. Meals were taken in... More

Although this hotel is about 5 miles from Workington town centre i would recomend it, its very quiet with a nice view from the Chalet style rooms to the hills in the distance. There is a small beer garden, a good selection of local beers in the bar and the food is very reasonably priced for the more normal food... More

What a delightful, warm welcome we received. Our one year old was with us and she was made a fuss of which was nice! A lady (owner?) helped us plan a few trips which was great. Had lunch and dinner in the hotel which were tremendous. Breakfast was not quite as good. Scrambled egg...not great and sausage very disappointing. (Def... More

Had a pleasant stay, was impressed with the room was spacious airy & clean. Breakfast was ok, scrambled eggs let it down, maybe opt for fried or poached! Bit out the way, no local shops to hand. Planned on leaving car when we came but unfortunately we drove most of the weekend. Lovely setting & peaceful. Staff friendly & helpful.

On business in the area and I needed somewhere comfortable with wifi and decent food. I was warmly welcomed, shown to my room which had everything I wNted. Very prompt and friendly service in the bar with tasty food. Early breakfast and checkout meant I was back on the road in good time. Will stay again if I'm in the... More
