Lovely, clean and large bedroom with en suite. Pillows perhaps a bit 'sad' but that didn't detract from our stay. Restaurant was perfectly adequate, and cooked breakfasts looked fabulous, although we only had cereal. Staff knew about gluten free and could advise what was safe for us from the menu. Hotel was busy, but we weren't bothered by noise from... More

We have visited this establishment on a number of occasions as we often stay at the the Travelodge opposite. The food is exceptional value for money, the staff are friendly. Nothing is too much trouble. The decor is somewhat dated but it is clean. I can't comment on rooms but if, like us, you are looking for an alternative to... More

The prices have gone up since I last visited, but still a nice meal, you can choose between a small portion or a large, the only difference, is you get extra meat on the large, but to be honest the small is fine.

My partner and I had originally booked a chalet stay in Tebay to cut a long story short due to their disgusting attitude our booking was cancelled and we were without a place to stay for our planned weekend away. We then came across the Shepherds Hotel and we are sure that we have just had a far better weekend... More

Rooms are clean and we'll managed, hotel in general is a bit dated but kept well, the 2 points that let this hotel down are lack of choice from the basic menu ( mostly frozen chip cafe food) and although free to access the WiFi signal is shockingly bad so no good for business users, this hotel is suited for...

Having left home at 6.30am and travelled to Cumbria from Hampshire we arrived in Cockermouth at 11.50 am and decided to call at the Shepherds Hotel to enjoy a Cumbrian All day breakfast which it said was served until 12 midday. A roadside sign said bacon & eggs £1.99. We were advised that the kitchen was now serving lunch and... More

I've been visiting this hotel since it was known as the sheep and wool centre as I'm from Cockermouth myself. Although the the decor is a little dated now that doesn't bother me mainly due to the friendliness of the staff. We came up on the weekend of the floods and I can't express enough how impressed I was by... More

We stayed here last weekend for one night on trip to the Lake District to go walking. The gentleman who greeted us on reception gave us a warm welcome and this set the standard for the friendliness and helpfulness of every member of staff we spoke to during our stay. I'd say in terms of service, we found it second-to-none.... More
