Usually stay in Cockermouth and now have an alternative hotel when visiting Workington. The restaurant is quite big and the food is of reasonable quality. The staff are all good and the room I had was large and comfortable. Be careful with Satnav as it may take you to another restaurant about a mile away. I think this hotel is... More

Hubby and I went away for a few days between shifts and could not have picked a better place. It's ideally situated near to the Lake District or the coast. It is in a quiet little village with everything you could need. Our room was spotless and comfortable. We had drinks in the bar and ate in the restaurant twice.... More

We have just returned from 3 nights stay at the excellent The Old Ginn House in Great Clifton just outside Workington. Geographically, it is very well located to visit a number of local places. In our 3 day stay, we went to Langholm in Scotland, Carlisle, Lanercost Priory and Hadrian's Wall, Silloth, Maryport, Whitehaven, St Bees and Workington. We had... More

I'm writing my first review because i just had an excellent meal in the restaurant. I had the leek soup of the day to start which was really good. Then I had the mozzarella and basil burger for mains. It was really, really good. One of the best veggie burgers I have ever had and the definitely the best one... More

What a find - great hotel with better than average accommodation - comfy beds - large ensuite with excellent shower. When we ventured to the bar we were warmly welcomed by the locals and spent a...

We stayed here for one night at the beginning of our C2C trip. The staff was incredibly nice and helpful, finding secure spots for our bikes in the garage. The room was fine, very clean with a firm bed and good pillows. It was a bit warm and hard to leave the window open at night because is was a... More

Nice size room with comfortable beds and clean. Nice hot shower. The room did smell a bit like animal manure which was a bit of a put off. The location is not the best as there is nowhere within walking distance. The WiFi was ok. Breakfast was average compared to what we had experienced in our 2 month tour of... More
