“As good as it gets...fantastic!”
Reviewed 1 October 2013

Just returned from a lovely stay...Carol-ann & Edward made us feel really welcome. On entering the hotel when we arrived we were greeted with smiles, humour, and a great atmosphere, you good see how happy and pleased the guests were, what a great way to start...the first thing they did was sit us down with a nice cup of tea / coffee which was a really nice touch...

The hotel is olde worldly place which we absolutely love, but not for everyone...the rooms are spotlessly clean and well presented. Carol-ann is a great character who goes the extra mile to ensure you have all your needs catered for. The only disappointment was that we did not sample Edwards fine dining, there was a food festival in Cockermouth so no evening meal, on our travels around the village countless locals informed us he is the best chef in the area, after sampling the fantastic breakfast we had I can believe it :-)

I travel round the world on business staying in various hotels, I know what good customer service feels and looks like, this is it...I cannot fault this venue, and 110% recommend it to anyone looking for a pleasurable relaxing visit to Cockermouth, we will be back for sure!

A lovely hotel, clean and tidy rooms, superb personal touch from very friendly staff. The breakfast was superb, I never had an evening meal there however if it's as good as the breakfast you wont be dissapointed. I would definatley stay there again, highly recommended.

Stayed overnight ahead of a family christening and the hotel owners couldn't do much more for us as we were made very welcome.

It's a great building and fantastic for kids and adults to explore but not for those who like their hotels modern and glossy. It's a traditional good quality hotel with 5 star service and food. Yes it may be a bit worn in some, unimportant areas, as others have commented on trip advisor but this is one of the things that gives it character. We will stay here again when visiting the family or even when weekending in the lakes which is just a short drive away.

The little things like real home made bread with meals and the ability for the chef to cook just about anything to cater for kids with fussy eating habits make all the difference.

One negative was that until we asked for someone to do it, we were expected to make up the sofa bed ourselves and perhaps this shouldn't have been necessary.

All in all a hidden gem that we have never stayed at in the many years we have visited Cumbria but will do so again in the many more years we will be visiting.

Thank you

We spent a lovely couple of nights at this hotel whilst attending a friends wedding. The staff were all very friendly. The breakfast was lovely and there was lots of choice, my boyfriend was particularly pleased that Marmite and black pudding were included in the choices! The room was very spacious and comfortable. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 3 and it was very spacious and comfortable.

Thank you for a lovely stay. Very nice and friendly staff. Room was spacious and spotlessly clean. Excellent breakfast, pleasantly served by Wendy and Bethany, nothing was too much trouble for them. Definitely would recommend this hotel.

We have just spent a lovely bank holiday weekend at the Manor House. Firstly we must sing the praises of the host, Carol Ann, as she made our stay so enjoyable, not forgetting the chef and her husband Eddie as well! The parking outside was excellent with no problems throughout the day at all.Some other hotels should go there and learn the art of good old fashioned customer service as she has this in abundance. The hotel itself is grand, with a smashing spiral staircase leading to all rooms. The standard of cleanliness throughout the hotel is impeccable and a credit to the hardworking staff, who incidentally we were told have worked there for a number of years and it shows! Although we didn't have dinner in the restaurant, if the hearty breakfast is anything to go by, it will be a delight as the quality of it was superb and nothing was a bother if more was required. We loved Cockermouth itself and this was our first visit to this lovely place but rest assured it won't be our last! Please, if you ever get the chance, book into this little gem as it offers great value for money too. Suffice to say we have already booked our next visit for late November as Carol Ann informed us that the Xmas lights were a joy to behold in the high street so we're already looking forward to this!

Room Tip: We stayed in rrom 4 which overlooks the main high street and is very spacious a yet very quiet being...
