Visited a few weeks ago, I had beef, no complaint, but my friend had lamb, of which he got one slice on his plate, is this usual??????? Very disappointing to say the least, if I could have caught the eye of the staff, I would have complained, none of the staff came anywhere near our table.

Don't stay at the Waverley if you can't see beyond the slightly faded appearance, it's not like a standard hotel chain at all. The thing that makes your stay is the people, they are warm and friendly and this outweighs the odd issue. Not for people with egos or attitude but we had a great time.

This is probably the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. The furniture, décor and bedding have been around since the 70's and the mattress probably from the same era - the springs are coming through, making it lumpy and extremely uncomfortable. Everything is shabby and the bedroom carpet filthy. The only saving grace is the staff, who are lovely... More

Nice little bar , the night porter was more than helpful The place is clean and tidy but used as a contractor hotel so can be a bit unsightly at times and banging in the early hours Fantastic breakfast tho ! Friendly staff and clean just needs a bit of modernisation

The Waverley is a nice hotel in the centre of Workington. With very friendly, helpful staff, the room was clean and comfortable. The cosy bar had very reasonable prices and good beer. And we enjoyed a fantastic cooked breakfast in the morning. An enjoyable stay.

First impression..2 girls and a youth in the flats opposite having an expletive filled row with each other..our room then overlooked their flat and the ongoing row. Awful reception..stair carpets with holes kicked through. The corridors to the rooms are claustrophobically cluttered with old fashioned shabby pictures and well past their sell by date carpets. Surrprisingly ok room though! Very... More
