Went on a weekend break. Polite & friendly staff. 5 star food. More parking there. Very good WIFI worked all around the hotel. Good & clean rooms & toilets. Lakes are about half an hour drive. Good prices. Value for money. Will stay there if I am going👍👍👍

Very welcoming staff lovely food in the restaurant both at evening time and breakfast. The lady at breakfast time was rushed off her feet Saturday morning but still kept smiling. The rooms very nice I was a bit dubious as we reached the door as they were a bit rough nd tatty but as we got in I was pleasantly... More

Stayed here for a fortnight on business….. one week in Room 21, th other in room 6. Hotel is more of what I'd call a decent motel……. not oodles of flash hotel facilities but all you need for a few nights staying over for business. Room - both were decent size, decor is maybe a little dated but absolutely fine,... More

The highlight of the stay was definitely the staff - very friendly, helpful and efficient. When I booked and explained we may need to check in late I was asked if we would like the kitchen to make up sandwiches or a snack for us as the restaurant closed at 9pm. I thought this was a really nice touch and... More

Hello Debbie Thank you for your glowing review following your recent stay at the hotel - we are certainly glad you enjoyed your stay. Although we are making many improvements to the building, sadly, a lift isn't one of them, though we are more than happy to accommodate guests in ground floor rooms should mobility be an issue. I will... More

Stayed for 2 nights at this hotel early June. We didn't spend much time in the hotel as we was visiting family who live nearby. We find the hotel very clean.

Brilliant friendly and quality service, food was very good. Would recommend this place for a quiet relaxing family meal together, well worth visiting. Don't always have to book a table in advance, can just drop in cause there's plenty tables.

We have just returned from a great long weekend at The Melbreak. This was a great base for exploring the Western Lakes. The staff were all really friendly and helpful with directions and places to visit, especially Alison, thanks chuck. We must admit, if we were to visit the lakes again we'd probably stay in Keswick itself as it was... More

The hotel and staff were very friendly and the breakfast was good. You could get 2 for 1 on evening meals so we ate at the hotel three times as it was a drive to go anywhere else. It is well placed for exploring the Lakes and is less expensive as it outside the national park. The rooms were clean... More

Although the hotel seems to be in the middle of nowhere it was centrally placed for our purpose of visiting this area of Cumbria for 4 days, so suited our needs perfectly. The reception, bar and restaurant are situated in the main building at the front and the accommodation is in a separate block behind, motel style. Initially we were... More
