Maybe I stayed at a different hotel or maybe I just expected too much. Booked what was called "Superior" Room - Decor was good but it was tiny and I mean tiny! When you first go into the room - it smelled somewhat musty and in need of airing, Bed was clean and comfy but hole in bed sheet!. Traffic really noisy - felt like glazing was basic and single. Bathroom had been modernised but finishings not great. Shower "squealed" due to water pressure issues - needed ear defenders to cut out the piercing noise. No extractor fan in bathroom which probably added to the mustiness. Reported problems in feedback form and to Reception - promised response by email - nothing. Receptionist claimed they did not know about there being no extractor fan nor about the water pressure noise from the shower. Breakfast OK but when you sit and look round, decor in need of a revamp - polystyrene tiles on ceiling in dining room dingy and badly in need of replacing. Staff pleasant. Bar is a bar but fine for just drinks and good prices. With some attention to the issues highlighted plus replacement of carpet on stairwell and paint updated on stairwell, it could be a lot better. Price initially appeared very good but was merely reflective of basic condition of surroundings.

Dear Linda Scotland
Thank you for taking the time to place your review, We are very disappointed when we hear that guest are unhappy with our facilities. We are pleased you enjoyed your breakfast, the bar area and the staff service. We have addressed most of your points mentioned at check in and regret the email explaining this was not received as we did send it when the alterations had been addressed.
We have installed an extractor fan, repaired the shower which was letting in air and repaired a seal on one of the windows which might have added to the noise interference and the ceiling tiles in the restaurant have been repaired or replaced.
We have a continuous refurbishment programme and the stairwell carpet was replaced in February 2013 we are looking at the decor in the corridors which could be brighter and will be added to our programme for 2014.

This is now my third stay. I need to be in the area for business. The food is pretty decent. Some of the decor could do with updating but it isn't terrible. The beds are comfy, the showers are good. The real asset is the staff. All really nice. Great service but without being overbearing. So much better than the Cumberland.

Stayed here for one night on the 8th of March 2014 could not fault the hotel nice and welcomed as soon as we arrived by reception . The room was clean and tidy and the bed was comfortable to sleep in . The breakfast was brilliant it was a buffet and had plenty of choice if I ever came back to Workington I would stay here again .

We stayed here on 24th, 25th and 26th of February 2014 using a groupon voucher and I cannot really fault this hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful, the room was comfortable and had all you needed and the food was very good and reasonably priced. The only downside was, as this is an old building, there is no lift. My girlfriend walks using a crutch and she had to negotiate about 20 steps. So this is not a hotel for disabled persons. Also the dining room roof could do with a severe repair. Otherwise I would like to thank all the staff for their hospitality.

Big Cumbria host many events and Workshops around the county offering businesses free support, at the beginning of February we ran four workshops across two days in Workington and hosted these at the Waverley Hotel. The equipment was all set up as requested and the layout was perfect for hosting an interactive workshop. The staff were really helpful and accommodating. All in all really well organised and professional.
