The Mansion Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 15 Whitehaven B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 14 May 2013

We required an overnight stay in Whitehaven and our local friend booked accommodation for us in The Mansion and what a good choice it was. We were welcomed by Tom whose friendly can do attitude immediately impressed us. The room was simply furnished but provided for all our needs was clean,warm and the bed was most comfortable, the shower was most efficient too. There is also an indoor swimming pool available to residents. The breakfast provided was excellent and of substantial portions. Tom and his assistants were most helpful and the whole establishment had a home from home feel about it. The premises are on a hill overlooking Whitehaven and there is good enclosed parking at the front. The hotel is furnished with interesting items and a historical fact is that William Wordsworth as a boy lived here for a period when the premises were a residential house. The best fact is that the accommodation is so reasonably priced it is doubtful that better value can be found in the local area. Should we be in the area again this is without doubt the place that we will be using for accommodation.

Booked the Mansion as an overnight stop while visiting some family in the area. Was amazed at Price £30 per head including breakfast is great but i was still sceptical, thinking this cheap cant be good... but it is!
We were told we could check in whatever time we wished so i opted for 12noon due to it being just me and my 3 year old son. We were made to feel at home straight away and were amazed when we saw the pool!
Tom (?) offered us use of the pool for not only us but my neice and nephew who i was visiting. this came in really handy when we got to 4pm and had run out of things to see in St Bees!
Room was clean, had lovely views and plenty of clean towels. only thing slightly negative is that our bed was quite hard and lumpy but im sure they arent all like that.

The owners very friendly little doggy Scamp made my sons day and was all he talked about all the way home the following day.

Breakfast the next morning was brilliant, friendly chef who took time to have a chat with us while our breakfast was cooking and made sure we had everything we needed.

All in all a brilliant place to stay, we are already trying to arrange our next visit - This time with Hubby in tow so that i can make use of that sauna while he babysits!

I've stayed here every week now for the past six months as I work locally. It's friendly, clean and quiet with a fabulous breakfast. As a bonus there's a nice pool and sauna, brilliant for the price and definitely recommended x thanks x

Excellent value for money, owners could not have been more helpful and accommodating.
Good choice of breakfasts,rooms have all amenities you need even though could do with a bit of upgrading but then you would not get the good value if this was the case!
The added bonus of having a swimming pool & sauna for guests is definitely a plus. I would not hesitate to recommend this B & B and i would return if in area again.
