I attended a Burns Supper at this hotel and what a welcoming place lt is. Nothing is too much trouble for them and they really make you feel at home. The en suite bedrooms are very comfortable and there is a large indoor pool with sauna which was great. The actual supper was very well done with the dining room...

First of all the negative - have to travel to Whitehaven for work and the town is a little bit depressed. There's no main shopping area as such, it's pretty run down at the moment and this is reflected in the main streets. A couple of decent restaurants and a couple of decent pubs. Was recommended the Mansion as somewhere...

Visited the The Mansion on a return business trip having authorised it as one of our preferred locations in Whitehaven for staff in the area. Was warmly welcomed by both of the owners - neither of whom demonstrated the lack of hospitality skills indicated in a previous review. I found them extremely engaging and friendly and all the facilities advertised...

Thank you for your kind words, the bad reviews do sting, I don't think people fully understand that behind small businesses like ours are ordinary people trying to make a living and do their best. We look forward to seeing you, and to meeting the dog too next time.

Lovely place. Friendly people. Spacious, clean and comfortable room with a good tv and a nice view. Excellent value for money, would expect to pay much more for this level of quality. Would definitely stay again!

Myself and my partner, had an enjoyable and relaxing stay at the Mansion, we will certainly stay again there if we go back over to the area. The staff were very friendly, helpful and very informative about things to do and visit in the surrounding areas.
