I visited the Melbreak House Hotel this week and was impressed. Firstly the young man on the bar was polite and very efficient, sorting me out straight away with a table in the conservatory, which is the nicest part of the hotel restaurant, and I didn't have too long to wait for my meal. I ordered scampi, chips and a... More

Booked Melbreak for a short stay in the north lakes. Great location for Cockermouth, Whitehaven, Keswick and the north lakes. Very comfortable and clean rooms and good food. Only criticism would be some tv noise from the room next to mine but nothing major. The friendliness of staff and caring customer service deserves special mention. We're planning a second visit...

A really good restaurant in a light and well decorated conservatory with nice friendly service service really good North Country Food was let down by shabby run down, gloomy, out of date bedrooms. It was hard to believe that the bedrooms belonged to the same establishment. They need to be brought up to the standard of the main building.

This hotel is quite local to us, but we haven't been here for quite a while. It was lunch time and there was only one other table of four people occupied. Drinks were ordered and served quite quickly, but there was a long wait before our meal order was taken, and another long wait before the waitress returned to say... More

Staying at the hotel on a business trip, I tried the pub grub in the bar/restaurant. Starter of salt and pepper squid was excellent. It's amazing how many eateries over cook the squid, but this tasted fresh and not chewy. The 'classic burger' (burger, cheese and bacon in brioche) main was seasoned nicely, accompanied by a good sized portion of... More
