“VERY GOOD BREAKFAST”
Reviewed October 17, 2010

We stayed on the 3 night special - VERY GOOD VALUE. The staff were all very helpful and friendly, We had an excellent evening meal and enjoyed the atmosphere that the Hotel bar provided. The rooms were spacious and spotlessly clean. We ate Breakfast every Morning and it was superb and the Cumberland Sausages were terrific. All in all we enjoyed our short break very much and would recommend it to everyone.

Thank you for taking the time to review your visit.

We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and your meals, especially the local Cumberland sausage - we do try to provide as much local produce as possible.

We hope that you will visit us again in the future.

We would like to know what organisation gave this hotel 4 stars!!! The room was of a good size and clean but there was nothing to indicate that this was supposed to be a 4 star hotel. The packets of sweetener were hard and dried up, and you turned on the cold tap in the washbasin and basically got a shower the pressure was so fierce. Our main gripe was that we waited 55 minutes for our starter in the restaurant. We had to ask for the menu after we had been sitting at the table for 10 minutes as no one was taking any notice of us and then again we had to ask to order our meal. Yes.... we know they were busy but we think that that was a little excessive.!! Would definately not recommend this hotel

Thank you for taking the time to review your visit, we appreciate feedback from our guests as it helps us to improve our services for future guests.
I apologise that your stay was not as expected.
Please note that we are a 4* INN - a pub with rooms - (rating awarded by Visit Britain ) not a 4* HOTEL and our prices reflect this. The rating system changed a couple of years ago and this has caused a few problems, for example there are 4* Hotels, 4* Inns, 4* Guest Houses, 4* Caravan sites etc. We are very careful not to describe ourselves a hotel, and call ourselves The Old Ginn House Inn, also the enjoyEngland.com 4* INN logo is clearly shown on our website. Unfortunately, some booking agencies do not differentiate between the types of 4* accommodation.
I apologise that the packets of sweeteners were hard and would have been happy to replace them if you had asked. Our water pressure is strong, but most guests appreciate this as it makes our showers quite powerful.
With regards to the wait for your meal, I apologise that you were not given any menus, they are kept beside the bar and usually given to diners by the bar person. With regards to ordering your meal, please take in to consideration that we are a pub, and meals are ordered at the bar as stated on the menus. I understand that a member of our waiting-on staff did take your order at the table, but unfortunately did not go immediately to the bar to process the order.
I can only apologise that you expected to stay in a Hotel not an Inn.

Best stay in the area! Pleasant and quiet location. Perfect for a relaxing night after busy day at work or long journey.
staff very friendly and always willing to lend a helping hand.
Food very good home cooked and fresh. The Ginn House fillet Steak is the best!!
Rooms clean and comfortable.
Plenty of on site car parking (a problem that I found at some hotels in the town)
Would recommend the Old Ginn House to anyone coming to the area either for business or pleasure.

Recently stayed for two nights.... Bed was very uncomfortable and in need of replacement... Food was moderate... Breakfast very good but evening meals in need of modernization..

Of more concern was the nearly £80 added to my bill.... including a extra night, and several items on the bar I didnt have.

So, make sure you check the bill carefully before checking out.....

With regards to your bill being incorrect, we can only apologise, unfortunately, another room bill had been added to your room in error. This was corrected on departure. We have intruduced a slightly different billing procedure to hopefully eliminate errors in the future.

My family and I have been staying at the Ginn House for a good number of years, several times a year whilst visiting friends in Workington. We like the location for its proximity to friends but also as base for exploring the Lakes. Staff are friendly, breakfast is always excellent whatever you choose from the menu. Rooms are clean and have everything you need. We usually stay for 3 nights fr/sat/sun and think the cost is very reasonable. Always come back here knowing we will be pleased with all that is provided.
