“Terrific Hotel Oozing Character”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2011

We usually stay at the Trout when we’re in Cockermouth, but on this visit they were full (on a non-descript Thursday night in October ?). They said they were more corporate these days and often were. So we took our lowly non corporate selves down the Allerdale Court instead, and we were very glad we did.
What a terrific hotel! The service is friendly and personable like a guest house but in a big old town centre hotel. And old it is – our room at the front was like stepping back into Georgian times: terrific raised four poster bed and exposed beams all over the place. Brilliant! This place just oozes character, but is clean and comfortable all the same.
When we arrived the receptionist insisted on bringing the two lattes (proper ones by the way) we ordered to our room so we could get settled, and the breakfast was excellent (great sausage...to be expected round these parts tho’).
We certainly shan’t bother with the Trout again – compared to the Allerdale it is overpriced and bland. Only thing to mention is, there is no car park – but there are plenty within spitting distance and free if you arrive at the right time.
To conclude: great value and highly recommended.... whether you be corporate or not.

I recently stayed with 5 of my friends at the Allerdale Court Hotel in Cockermouth. The hotel is located right in the centre of the quiet Market town of Cockermouth. The staff were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. The full Cumbrian breakfast fantastic, poached eggs perfect. The rooms whilst small are clean and very comfortable

A great place for a break, Cockermouth is a little gem of a town and well worth a long week visit with access to the Northern Lakes and Cumbrian coast

Thanks and kind regards Peter Mingins

My husband and I chose once again to stay at this hotel which had continued with it update and was looking really good. We had booked last minute and did not hold too much hope for rooms but we had a large room which was more like a junior suite with lots of space and two easy chairs and large TV. The hotel was quiet as we were at the back of the hotel. The room was spotlessly clean and really comfortable with lovely Egyptian cotton bedding and lots of pillows and cushions. We went to visit the festival which was great and it was really handy to be in the town so that we could pop back and forth. The hotel had lots of tables outside for the festivities and we partook of excellent lamb burgers on mint and coriander naans washed down with top notch mojitas. Breakfast on Sunday was second to none and we took our time and enjoyed extra coffee and toast and nothing was too much trouble for the helpful staff. I have returned to this hotel not to be disappointed and I hope to return again to support this busy market town that should be very proud of its recovery following the floods. Keep it up Cockermouth.

Room Tip: we were in room 207

Having recently stayed at the Allerdale Court Hotel with my husband for the Taste of Cumbria Festival, we have found a Cumbrian Treasure. This Hotel is situated perfectly to explore this quaint town with unique boutiques. The Hairy Biker window display was fabulous and drew many admirers including the Hairy Bikers themselves, much to our delight!
We received a very warm welcome and throughout our stay nothing was too much trouble for the members of Allerdale Court staff.
Our room was spacious, stylishly decorated and spotless.
I can definately recommend the famous Cumbrian breakfast, a feast no less. Oh and the cocktails later in the day were very welcome...

We were very surprised to be accommodated at such short notice given the Festival.
We have stayed at this hotel before hence the relief to have got in. We were at the back of the hotel which to be honest was a little quieter and cooler at night.
We didn't eat at the hotel restaurant as friends we were meeting had made other arrangements for us, this was a bit of a let down as previously we have thoroughly enjoyed the evening menu!
The breakfast next morning certainly did not disappoint.
Throughout our 2 day stay the hotel staff were very friendly, polite and helpful. Our friends have an autistic daughter and her special needs were very well catered for by all.
We plan to visit again (and recommend) very soon.
