We have just returned from a lovely stay at the recently refurbished Golden Lion Hotel in Maryport. We received a warm welcome by the reception staff and were shown up to our room ... number 16 on the 4th floor. The room was quite spacious, was equipped with tea/coffee making facilities, had a small en-suite shower room (with hand gel, shower gel, shampoo etc) and great views of the harbour, across the Solway Firth to Scotland.
The full English breakfast was lovely ... served from 8.00 until 10.00 on Sat and Sun. The menu held a good selection of evening meals (... just we didn’t seem to have enough room left by evening to partake!).
I would recommend this hotel to others and would stop there again.
It is an old building with no lift ... and if you are not too good on your feet ... it may be considered to be quite a hike up to the 4th floor with heavy bags?
Rooms 1 to 5 (inc.) appeared to be on the 1st floor. Rooms 14 to 17 (inc.) are on the 4th/top floor, facing out across the harbour (... I would consider the view to be worth the hike). Weather permitting ... lovely sunsets ;-)
The people of Maryport are extremely helpful, very friendly and most welcoming to visitors. We enjoyed our second visit to the town and plan to return in the near future (... to continue my research into the history of missing number 19 King Street and its occupants in the mid 1800’s).
