My friend and I visited this lovely hotel for lunch ! We thought the food,ambiance and pleasant staff wonderful! The conservatory where we were seated was a "Gem"...views over towards the mountains very pleasant. A good central area for the Western lakes & coast. Cockermouth/Keswick only 10 - 20 minutes away,!

We took my mum for Sunday lunch based on a friends recommendation. The service was quick, the food hot and generous portions. We had garlic mushrooms, chicken in a smoked cheese sauce, roast beef and a salmon. To follow lemon tart and strawberry cheesecake. It was £3.95 for a starter and the same for dessert and £7.95 for a main... More

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

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
