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

Dear Guest, Thank you very much for your kind review; it was great to hear you enjoyed your stay and our hospitality. I am sorry the breakfast was not to your liking and have passed your comments to our catering department.

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.

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

Stayed at the Melbreak over the early May bank holiday weekend. Took advantage of the 3 for 2 deal and used the hotel as a walking base for the Western fells around Buttermere, Wasdale and Ennerdale. I was impressed by the level of service I received at the Melbreak. I was given rm 30 as I asked for a quiet,... More
