    Unless you are actually visiting Ravenglass, this hotel is a little out of the way. The outside of the hotel is very impressive as is its history. The room was larger than average and the bed very comfortable. On the evening had a bar meal which was okay, nothing wrong with it but not too impressed either. The breakfast was lovely and having the option of haggis was a big bonus. I booked this room last minute and for £49 for the two of us B&B was good value. The rooms could do with being brightened up a little, the decor was a little bland. Wouldn't make a special trip to stay here, but if over in that area again, I would use it again.

    If it wasn't for the truly heroic work by Steve when we arrived who is clearly has customer service down to a fine art I would have rated our stay much, much more harshly.

    On arrival the building and room had massive wow! factor, I was chuffed to bits given the amount of space in our room, the friendliness of the evening staff and the good tasting food.

    The shine wore off very quickly however once back in our room, sleep time. Clearly it must be above the kitchen which has a creaking door. For four near solid hours we were subjected to non-stop creaking echoing through the floor, no doubt as servers were passing through. Finally, near 11.30pm it stopped. Mostly. Sadly I was woken back up again at about 6.30 as it started up again, and I am a very heavy sleeper so make no mistake, this was quite a noise. My other half sleeps with ear plugs so thankfully she missed it all.

    The bathroom was not particularly great with the machinator going off sporadically and making a terrible noise during the night. Also the shower screen was totally insufficient for the shower, resulting in the floor turning into a paddling pool which we mopped up with all the towels.

    Next morning we came down for breakfast, we declared our room number when asked and offered any free table. During our breakfast we were asked by the lady (waitress / manager?) to confirm our room number as it was the same as another couple had given. Eventually it was cleared up that the other couple had changed rooms and had actually given out the wrong room number to the staff - they had originally been in our room but had been moved, maybe due to the creaky door? As they later left the restaurant one of the other couple was heard joking to himself "lets see what else we can charge to that room".

    Well clearly they had got a head start as when we checked out 20mins later there was over £70 of additional food and alcohol charges on our bill. We didn't drink whilst there so these definitely weren't ours. It didn't take long to work out what was and wasn't ours with the same lady from the restaurant however throughout going through the correction process we never quite got the feeling that we were being believed, even though only 1 hour earlier the room confusion had been highlighted. Maybe that is me being a bit sensitive, disappointing none the less. As for the other couple, I don't blame Irton hall for their clear dishonesty as they must have known they had billed items to our room. Frankly, they should be ashamed of themselves.

    It was quite a trek out of our way to stay at Irton Hall and was meant to be a bit of a treat for us on our way up to Scotland. Steve has left the biggest impression though, being so positive and friendly - hence the three stars. The hall however was a massive let down.

    Room Tip: Not one above a creaking door.

    We stayed at Ormondroyd Cottage, one of the self catering cottages next to Irton Hall itself, for a week in November. We were so pleased on arrival to find a clean, newly decorated, well equipped cottage exactly as pictured on the website. The virtual tour is very helpful. As a result you get exactly what you expect.
    The manager of the day, Tom, quickly showed us round and pointed out that we could use the hotel facilities. You can order breakfast and dinner and even packed lunches to take onto the fells. So it's like self catering only with less of the catering if you wish. Of course you could just stay in and totally self cater.
    The staff were all exceptionally helpful and did everything possible to make the holiday stress free.
    There are brilliant walks of many lengths from the doorstep, including Whin Rigg, the fell next to Irton Pike overlloking Wast Water and Scafell. Amazing given that it's less than a mile away.
    The ownwer, Steve, also excelled and as a result we scored this Hotel/Cottage 10/10.
    You won't be disappointed.

    My wife and I stayed here at Irton Hall for her birthday weekend. We were not disappointed in any way. The atmosphere was warm and inviting, the staff friendly and helpful. The room was good, the bed one of the most comfortable hotel beds I have slept in. The food was excellent. Overall this was the best value I have had anywhere.
