Premier Inn Whitehaven Hotel

Reviewed January 2, 2013

We stayed here as a stop off on our way from Leicester to Stirling in December 2012. We unfortunately travelled on the wettest/windiest day of the year - this has had an impact on my review - when we arrived we were first found battling the car park which is extremely steep in places and I found it awkward to park because of the size of the car park - we took our bags to reception (battling the wind and rain and slope) to be told (by a very friendly receptionist) that our room was in the building opposite so we had to drag our bags outside again to get into the room. Apart from that the stay was spot on - the rooms in the separate block have been recently renovated so you had a 40" wall mounted TV and plug sockets at the side of the bed (sounds daft but when you rely on your phone to wake you and see the time when in a room with black out curtains!) and there wasn't any noise from outside. We stayed on a Sunday night but didn't fancy Brewer's Fayre so got a recommendation of Roper's Chippy from a member of staff at BP petrol station - fantastic fish n chips on a Sunday night - the only one's open locally! If the weather was better and the lower car park wasn't full I wouldn't have anything to moan about!

Room Tip: I don't know if the rooms in the same building as reception have been renovated - if the weather...

Very pleased with staff and room, i can say that i stayed in express by holiday in and quality is same. Bed was nice and firm, bedding clean and smells good. Enough towels as well. Really enjoy the stay i will definitely use again in future. Only one think a bit disturbing that only 4 people on each room, well at least i have a break from rest of the family ; )) I was pleased with price in restaurant as well, breakfast was good as well, and kids just eat what ever they wanted.

Room Tip: i was not able to choose my rooms

Stayed here for two nights at £19 a night so unbeatable value.

Hotel is a couple of miles outside Whitehaven but is only 5min away by car. Whitehaven was good for an afternoon walk or evening snifter. You can see why New York was based on its layout. One way central!!

Done the 4hr cliff walk to St Bees and got the bus back. Superb walk and great sights.

Nice area for getting into the Lake District and I'm sure you can do a lot more in the summer.

Hotel was clean, bright and great value.

Brewers Fayre beside it done OK food - would not say it was excellent but was good value. Had continental breakfast which was well stocked and enjoyable.

Staff at restaurant and reception were upbeat, friendly and well mannered.

Rooms were clean, lovely big tv with full range of Freeview channels. Great sleep in a comfy bed. Nice bathroom.

Premier Inn really is a safe choice and i had an enjoyable stay and enjoyed the change of scenery. I would stay here again if in the area.

We stayed at this hotel on Christmas Day and Boxing Day to be near to family. Most of the B & Bs were closed on Christmas Day, and the one that was open was charging £120 a night.
This Premier Inn proved to be an excellent alternative at only £29 a night plus about £6 for continental or £8 for full English breakfast.
The room was spacious, clean and very comfy. The heating was easy to operate and very efficient. The bed was extremely comfortable. We even had a view of the sea over the fields!
The bathroom was roomy, the shower good, with Imperial Leather shower gell. There were sufficient towels ( 2 bath and 2 hand ) which were changed daily. There was a hairdrier and tea and coffee facilities. We really couldnt fault it.
Meals are taken in the adjoining Brewers Fayre. We only had breakfasts, but these were very good. Plenty of choice and in pleasant surroundings. The staff throughout our stay were friendly and helpfull. We had a problem with our remote control which was immediately rectified. We made use if the 30mins free wi fi per day. It would only ave been £3 for 24 hours, but we didn't need that.
We will definitely go back again, and hope that the £29 a night rate will still be available.

The strength of this hotel is its staff. Always friendly and helpful. Stayed with whole family over chrtsmas (2 adults and 2 children). At £29 per night prebooked, pretty good bargain!! Only problem was breakfast at the attached Brewers fayre. Cooked breakfast some very dry items and the beans looked the cheapest quality you can get. Restaurant staff tried to resolve problem but unfortunately sometimes when you can't cook, you just can't. Premier inn staff helpful in cancelling our prebooked breakfast for the following day and arranging the refund. For dinner suggest a very good Indian just past weatherspoons in Whitehaven.

Fantastic 3 night stay, great customer service, friendly staff and great surroundings. The pub next door offers good food at reasonable prices the only downfall if any was a couple of the breakfast items could have been of better quality but with the variety and the kids eat free it was still worth the £16.50 for the 4 of us. Great value especially if you can get a saver rate room.

This hotel offered very reasonable rates when compared to any other B&B or small hotels in this area. Staff were very helpful and attentive, the room was very clean and spacious and the bed was comfortable. Didn't need anything else for our overnight stay.
Good value for money if you look out for special offers.
