A light and airy atmosphere in the conservatory.Despite overlooking the main road traffic noise was not too intrusive .The staff were well turned out and attentive. The starters were attractively presented and the poached salmon and lemon and lime mayonnaise ,and the garlic mushrooms were particularly good. The strawberry kiwi and melon cocktail was predominately melon and heavy on juice.I... More

Have visited several times for family meals, both at lunchtime and in the evening. The staff are very friendly and the food is very good and is reasonably priced.

I often come hear for lunch and evening meals with my family. The food is always fresh and good quality and is brilliant value for money. The staff are always friendly and there is always a good atmosphere. Doesn't get enough praise! Definitely recommend.

Pass this hotel regularly and has always looked inviting from the road, offering two meals for £14.95. Finally decided to try same with two friends. Arrived approx. 6 pm and no one else in the restaurant so no atmosphere at that time. Food was excellent but one member of staff a bit off which spoilt the visit a little. Overall... More

Stayed here on the three night deal over the early May bank holiday. I needed a base for walking the far Western fells of the Lake District around Ennerdale , Wasdale and Buttermere but did not fancy paying Lakes prices for a single room. The Melbreak is a roadside business style hotel just off the A66 . I asked for... More

I see other reviews have really slated the Melbreak so I hope it isn't too much of a risk these days! The times I've been were fine. The food was good and plentiful and the surroundings were clean and welcoming. I'm not sure they have the high-end presentation that justifies some of the prices but I haven't been disappointed by...

Booked a table of 2 in advance. Got there and we had to go and look for anyone. Eventually found staff. Staff couldn't remember 2diet cokes 1 with lemon and had to ask what drinks were twice. Waited in the bar area and ended up helping the 1bar staff do her maths homework. Then being told by the mature woman... More
