My partner and I stayed the 10th Oct to the 12th, and found the hotel to be close enough to the coast where my family live to make it easy to see everyone, but also close enough to the lakes. The price for 2 nights was very reasonable, especially as it included breakfast. The room was lovely, comfortable and clean,... More

Stopped here for three nights and ate in restaurant. Location great for exploring Western Lakes. Great service like stopping with relatives rather than in a hotel nothing was to much to do. Food and accommodation to a high standard and customer service skills of staff above what you would expect from any top rate hotel.

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
