I travelled down to Maryport with my mum as a present for Mother's Day as that is where she was born and lived as a child. We arrived at the hotel and parked in the small but adequate carpark. We then checked in and were shown to our room. The room was a good size for me and my mum with lovely decor and en-suite. The room had everything we needed including tea/coffee marking facilities, freeview tv, hairdryer, free wi-fi, toilitries and heating/air-con system. We also had a lovely view of the harbour.
As my mum was born there we then went out walking all afternoon and visited a few of the local pubs which were all very reasonably priced and within short walking distance.
We then went for our dinner in the night at the hotel bistro. There was a great choice of starters and mains and the food was delicious and portion sizes are more than generous. The bar area was friendily also with a good atmosphere.
After a very comfortable sleep in our double bed we then went down to breakfast served between 8-10 on a weekend. There was a choice of cereals, jams, fresh fruit and yoghurts or a full cumbrian breakfast. Me and my mum opted for the cumbrian breakfast which was absolutely delicious, generous portion of 2 thick slices of bacon, 2 eggs (cooked how you prefer), cumberland sausage, beans, mushrooms and toast (i asked for mine without tomato and black pudding) and a pot of tea or coffee with the option of juice.
I honestly have no complaints about this hotel and would recommend it to anyone visiting Maryport for its spectacular loaction. I will definately be returning soon with the rest of the family.
