Reviewed 24 September 2013

Stayed here for a short break and will return . The staff were all excellent and friendly. Our room was spotless , modern and comfortable with harbour views. We ate in the restaurant and enjoyed the food but I have to say the chips were poor. Breakfast was one of the best cooked breakfasts I have ever had. Everything was hot and freshly cooked. Well done to all at The Golden Lion.

Room Tip: Harbour view.

Phil has done a marvellous job of refurbishing the Golden Lion Hotel, which I remember from holding a teenage party there in the early 1950s. Very comfortable room and good food plus nice view of the harbour from the table in the corner of the dining room, which I'm afraid we monopolised. All I would request is a grab rail in the shower as I am getting on in years and not very steady.

As a honeymoon couple looking to begin a cross country bicycle ride we couldn't have picked a better place for a journey to begin .
The staff were attentive fantastic amazing you name it they were all the things you'd want .
There was something for everyone on the menu and very reasonable prices. Its more bistro than hotel ! On our return we had the gorgeous nachos starters (I liked the scallops n black pudding myself but I could still eat the wild mushrooms in a creamy garlic reduction ) and the ribeye steak was excellent . As you can tell we loved the food .
Anyone looking to take part in the Hadrians wall route 72 cycle shouldn't miss this gem.
Our room 17 was spacious clean with a great view

Thank you so much

We have just returned from a lovely stay at the recently refurbished Golden Lion Hotel in Maryport. We received a warm welcome by the reception staff and were shown up to our room ... number 16 on the 4th floor. The room was quite spacious, was equipped with tea/coffee making facilities, had a small en-suite shower room (with hand gel, shower gel, shampoo etc) and great views of the harbour, across the Solway Firth to Scotland.
The full English breakfast was lovely ... served from 8.00 until 10.00 on Sat and Sun. The menu held a good selection of evening meals (... just we didn’t seem to have enough room left by evening to partake!).
I would recommend this hotel to others and would stop there again.
It is an old building with no lift ... and if you are not too good on your feet ... it may be considered to be quite a hike up to the 4th floor with heavy bags?
Rooms 1 to 5 (inc.) appeared to be on the 1st floor. Rooms 14 to 17 (inc.) are on the 4th/top floor, facing out across the harbour (... I would consider the view to be worth the hike). Weather permitting ... lovely sunsets ;-)
The people of Maryport are extremely helpful, very friendly and most welcoming to visitors. We enjoyed our second visit to the town and plan to return in the near future (... to continue my research into the history of missing number 19 King Street and its occupants in the mid 1800’s).

Golden Lion was a lovely feel appointed hotel, nice room, good bed, tea making facilities and stunning views. 4th floor views were spectacular over the harbour and solway firth.
Restaurant served a wide choice of meals and were good value for money.
Staff were friendly and very helpful with directions, information etc.
Great stay, we will use agan and reccommend to friends.
Only downside, was there was no lift, so next time I will ask for a lower floor.

Room Tip: Fourth floor for great sea views

We enjoyed a one night stay with breakfast. Very friendly staff on arrival, who took us to our room. Very clean and comfortable. Plenty of towels and good room facilities. We had breakfast in the restaurant and it was cooked fresh to order. Very good service by our waitress. Lovely family run business with a lot to offer. Will definitely stay again. Thank you to Philip and his staff.
