Pleasant, warm and friendly greeting. Hotel was very busy but the staff were able to find time to make us feel welcomed. Hotel room cosy but a nice big comfortable bed. Restaurant bright with good staff, food was OK. Breakfast was good. This is a good location to visit West Cumbria.

I stayed at the Melbreak with a 14 strong group sponsored walk for charity here. We started each day an hour before the allocated breakfast time and the staff were able to still serve us one. When we needed a room for our physio to set up they provided that too. The meals were always of a high standard and... More

We stayed in this hotel when we did a charity walk over 4 days. I cannot fault this hotel, nothing was too much for them, the chef came in n an hour early so we could have breakfast, they made us specific meals on request and the staff and management were great. Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone, I... More

My husband and I stayed here for our 21st Anniversary. We got 3 nights for 2 offer. Had a very good selection for breakfast and the vegetarian sausages were lovely, normally I don't like them but these were delicious. The room (31) was excellent, clean, and very comfortable, the bed was extremely restful. We ate in the restaurant (conservatory) 2... More

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
