The Trout is situated right on the main street of Cockermouth, on the bank of the river. They have tables out for you to sit and enjoy the view. Granted, there's not too much to see apart from the water rushing by, but it's still quite relaxing if you're into that kind of thing.
The bar and restaurant are quite compact but not claustrophobic. The price of alcohol is a little on the expensive side, even for a hotel - you'd be forgiven for thinking you were in central London with the price of a simple lager.
Our room was large and airy with a very comfortable bed. They offer various pillow types by request, if you're one of those who can only sleep on goose feathers. The TV in the room is a large flat screen (around 42") that wouldn't look out of place in any modern living room. Much better than the tiny ones you see in most hotel rooms these days.
Breakfast consists of a cold buffet, with meats, cheeses, cereal, yogurt, fruit and croissants etc as well as a choice of full English breakfast items - cooked to order. I am a fan of buffet style cooked breakfast but this format has the advantage of the food not being sat under a heated light for a few hours if you're late getting down to eat.
The staff are attentive and really friendly.
Definitely one of the better, independent hotels I have stayed in.
