“Friendly B&B with helpful hosts and delicious breakfast”
Reviewed 14 October 2010

Our family stayed at the Sefton House before starting our walk along the Cumbria Way. It is a short distance from the train station - easily walkable. We found the rooms nicely decorated and thoughtfully amenitied. The breakfast was delicious with homemade breads, scones, and cooked to order eggs. It was a great start to our adventure.

This is a peaceful and charming house, very well situated in the town. The owners are so lovely and the food delicious with very high quality products. I have really enjoyed staying in Sefton House and I highly recommend this place for anyone visiting Ulverston!

Reviewed 7 October 2009

The website did not show it was a vegetarian bed and breakfast. The choice was not good in relation to what we had expected eg no bacon or black pudding and only quorn sausages. Tea and coffee making facilities were actually outside the en suite room - again not made clear. Sink was outwith the bathroom - within the sleeping area - and hairdryer on request only. Room decor needed updating and radiator paint was peeling. Cold at night as no duvet, just a mixture of covers and even when asked for another blanket, a very tired old one was provided. Fire bell went off Sunday morning for a few minutes then stopped but no explanation to say all okay - had to ask at breakfast.

We do travel around a lot and I have to say we were very disappointed with this so would not recommend unless you are also vegetarian and feel the heat. No parking at the accommodation and car had to be left quite a bit away or in a car park near but which charged.

Clearly, we are disappointed that you found our guest house disappointing. As we are a town house, and a listed building, there is little we can do to change the make up of the rooms. The room in question was painted and decorated, and the bathroom modernised, within the last 18 months, and all the beds have new mattresses. We have duvets in some rooms and sheets and blankets in other rooms, to offer a variety of choices. We also have an ulimited supply of blankets on demand. We did try putting tea and coffee in the rooms but found that by putting them just outside the rooms, this made the rooms more spacious. Most guest houses do not have hair dryers in each room, and they are available on request. Being in the town centre we cannot offer free parking, but there is plenty of free parking within a few minutes walk. Our guest book is full of compliments regarding our breakfast, and we are very proud of the fresh, organic food that we offer. We have home baked bread and cakes, fresh every morning, and plenty of fresh food on our buffet table, as well as a cooked breakfast. We also offer a very warm welcome to our guests, and love having people stay with us. However, we do appreciate that what we have to offer is not to everyone's taste.
