The hotel is spotless, the bedding and especially the towels are fabulous. The food has...

I have stayed overnight here before, the staff are so friendly, rooms are spotless and I was made to feel very welcome. The evening meal was as lovely as ever. On previous occasions I have stayed on my own and always made to feel comfortable.

Booked 2 superior king size rooms. Rooms were immaculate and newly refurbished. The bed was very comfortable and everything was finished to a high standard. We ate in the restaurant and the food was amazing. The staff were very accommodating and friendly. The only thing that let this down was the rooms are not in the building itself and when...

I recently stayed in this hotel for business purposes. The hotel location is great for walking and views, but there are areas that need some tender loving care. I stayed in room 25 which is located in the annex across the way from the main restaurant and bar area. The room was clean and tidy warm and quiet. The issues...

The Melbreak is ideally sited for Workington and Whitehaven and gives a great view of all of the Lake District's north western fells. I've stayed here a number of times and have found the staff to be variable from very friendly and helpful to downright brusque, depending on who is behind the desk. The majority of the rooms have all...
