“A PLEASANT TWO NIGHT STAY - JUNE 2008”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2008

My family and I stayed at Wheyrigg Hall Hotel for two nights at the end of June 2008, whilst attending a family wedding in the area.

Having driven from the South of the country all the way up the M6, and having suffered the inevitable delays on the M25 / M1 / M6, we arrived a couple of hours after we had told the hotel to expect us. I fully expected to find the restaurant closed, and a bit of a luke warm reception, but was warmly greeted by the young girl working behind the reception desk / bar, who dealt with signing us in in an efficient manner.

We were quickly seated in the restaurant, and were served good meals, with local meat and plenty of fresh veg and chips. The waitress proved to be only 14 years old, but did a great job with the (very) hot plates.

Our family room was clean, and nicely prepared, with tea and coffee facilities and biscuits for the children. We had an en suite bathroom / toilet, which was again nice and clean. The only real critisism that could be levelled, if there really is one, is that the decor is quite dated, and could do with 'refreshing' or 'modernising', however this is a very small critisism, as everything else was fine.

Breakfast in the restaurant is a selection of cereals, juices, toast and a really nice full English breakfast. The staff were very friendly, and very kindly made a round of sandwiches for our children to eat during the long day ahead.

If we stayed in the area again, we would definitely use the hotel for our stay. Altlhough it is a little worn around the edges, the friendliness of the staff, the quality of the food in the restaurant , and the nice location outside Wigton all make up for it.

  • Liked — The restaurant served very nice food, and all the staff were extremely friendly and helpful
  • Disliked — The decor in the bedrooms is a bit dated

The rooms, although simply furnitured, were spacious and clean.
Staff was friendly, but service was a bit slow.

The very big problem with this place is that that the bar and eating room stink grease. And it does not seams to be temporary, during breakfast it smells as strongly, I had to take a second bath after breakfast.

Hope they can fix it, I think the hotel would be quite alright if they do.

Warm welcome. Great room. Good Food, if a little too much of it. Helpful staff. Couldn't have found anywhere better.

Stopped for one night,yesterday evening,as a friend and myself were attending a 2 day motorsport event in nearby Silloth.

The staff were very friendly,and as we had called in on the way to the event,just to confirm that we wouldn't be checking in until 8pm,they said it wasn't a problem.

The twin room was lovely,with en-suite,coffee and tea,and a lovely view across the hills,and was so peaceful at night,because the hotel is out in the country.

We had the Cock and Bull,as an evening meal,and with desert,and two drinks,it was a reasonable £25.Breakfast was a good old English,with fruit juice,tea/coffee,and cereal,if you wanted it,and really set you up for the day.

Would I stop there again?

Yes,as it was a nice area,and good staff,which is what it's all about.
