I feel a bit harsh giving two stars, if you are looking for just a place to sleep and have a bit of breakfast its OK but for anything else its really below par. I came here with my girlfriend for my birthday. We paid £100 more for the 6 night stay to get an upgraded room but the one...

I have stayed here many times. It is very close to Bassenthwaite lake and probably is very handy for tourists to that area, although personally I use it as a base when working in Whitehaven or Workington as all the local hotels seem to fill up very quickly. Rooms vary but are all of adequate standard. The hotel has a...

We have stayed at the castle inn over 5 times, the bedrooms are very clean always warm and the beds are very comfortable. The wifi was poor but now is very good. The breakfasts are very tasty and waitress service. The castle inn is situated closer enough to enjoy time in Scotland if desired. There are excellent walks nearby to...

Lovely hotel, nice lounge and conservatory area to relax in. Our twin room was large with a separate sitting area, fridge and tea facilities. Large bathroom too but no bath, however good shower. Great views, from bedroom window.

A hotel of very good, friendly, professional staff and lots of amenities. We stayed one night on a family visit to the Lakes with children and felt very welcome. There is lots in the hotel complex to do should the weather not be good too including pool, children's game room, tennis court etc. We will certainly be using again for...

We have visited this hotel on several occasions over the last twelve years sometimes independently for walking and sometimes as part of a sequence dancing group. The overall appearance is certainly much nicer since the refurbishment and there have been other improvements especially in staff training. Wi Fi is excellent throughout the building. We would recommend paying extra for a...

We spent a lovely 2 night break at this hotel where the staff were amazing, the room was fabulous and they welcomed our 3 black labradors with open arms. The room accommodated us and the dogs brilliantly, having a door right out onto the entrance patio so the dogs didn't have to wander through the hotel. The room was excellent...

The location of the hotel is excellent with a view of the fells and Bassenthwaite from the lounge area. The room we had was good and provided a separate room for our son within the area. There was a problem with the bathroom lock which was not successfully resolved during our stay. The kitchen always seemed to be under pressure...

Throughout our stay our room had a bottle top on the floor from previous tenants. Curtains not hung properly but otherwise nice. Car park view uninspiring. Food really variable. Gorgeous breakfast on first morning but inedible scrambled egg on second. On first night sent over cooked starter back but replacement was fine. Restaurant very pricey for the quality but bar...
