The hotel is located in a quiet area in the small town of Cleator, with easy access to the larger towns and the stunning scenery afforded by the lakes. It is an ideal base for visiting the many attractions of the West Coast of England, such as the stunning Lake District and the beautiful seaside town of St. Bees. The hotel is approximately 10 km from Whitehaven. This is a Grade II listed building nestled within 2 hectares of tranquil landscaped gardens and Italian fountains. Through the large, beautifully refurbished hallways there are painstakingly restored original fireplaces and ceilings. T...More details

A real shame as the staff were really sweet and very apologetic. The management at the hotel need to seriously regroup and put more importance on cleaning. Not just because people expect cleanliness as a basic requirement but we’re still in a pandemic where hygiene is more important than ever. Cobwebs in my room, stained sheets, smelt damp, toilet smelt like a urinal, no headboard on the bed, wallpaper peeling off the wall, dirty shower, mould on shower ceiling, etc. The second room wasn’t much better and the third room (the bridal suite) was THICK with dust (as you can see in the red drapes picture which were on the 4 poster bed) Left and stayed at alternative accommodation. Will not be visiting again.
Very nice short break.

We stayed for two nights with Virgin. Overall a very pleasant stay. It was clean, warm and the staff were lovely and very helpful. Yes it could do with a lick of paint outside but please look past that. The gardens were beautiful. Loads of hot water and a jacuzzi bath. Nice dining room with pub style food but tasty. Breakfast was great and hot. If you this way I would definitely stay again.

Just had an adventurous two nights at the hotel, which from the outside does perhaps look like a coat of paint would be good, but first impressions can be misleading. Our room which was spacious, clean, and warm looked out onto the gardens at the rear of the hotel. The food at dinner was very good, both the choice, quality and presentation excellent, in very nice surroundings, lots of the original architecture visible, a beautiful ceiling and coving in the main dining room. The staff, Jackie the manager and Steve the barman, both very welcoming and full of knowledge about the area. In fact all the staff were very friendly. The annoucement by Jackie at breakfast on the second day, that all roads out of the lake district were closed was a bit of a surprise, but always up for a challenge we made it over the high passes of Hardkott and Wrynose into Ambleside. So all in all quite an exciting two days. We will be back.

My wife and I stayed at the Ennerdale Country House for an evening booked via a Virgin Experience voucher. The hotel is situated within lovely grounds and the building from the exterior looks rather grand. Once inside it is first apparent that the building needs a bit of TLC but it does have some very quaint and charming features such as the open fire place and decorative ceiling in the dining room. The rooms are OK, only single pain sash windows so if you are near the road, like we were, it can be a bit noisy during the night and a bit drafty. We put a towel at the bottom of the window which stopped the draught coming through. We did raise an issue about the electric shredder attached to the toilet making noises ever now and again but in all honesty it was quite than the traffic going past durong the night. Food in the evening was OK, we were hoping for a better selection, we had to choose from an all inclusive menu, we weren't stayong all inclusive so am unsure if there were other options available. Being in the Lakes I thought I'd order a Cumberland Sausage but wasn't the traditional type I was expecting but it was still OK. My wife had the lasagna which she described as OK. Portion sizes for the starters and mains were generous. The bar is nice and big with a decent selection of drinks and prices are very reasonable. Breakfast the next morning was OK as well, my poached egg was solid but all the other items were satisfactory. I can't really fault the hotel on much but I couldn't highly praise a particular aspect either. If I had to describe the stay in one word it would, unsuprisingly, be "OK."

I titled my review this way as i can honestly say the Wonderful staff at the hotel do everything to make your stay memorable. From checking in at reception with Amy, meeting Steve at the bar for pre-dinner drinks to meeting Rachel when we went for dinner, we were treated like friends and had such a great time and many laughs with them during our four night stay. We were two couples and our rooms were lovely, would recommend the Executive rooms (our were 27 and 31), The meals at breakfast and dinner were always fabulous and great portion size. Amy, Morris and Dan in the kitchen are fantastic and their home cooked pies are so tasty, as was all the meals we chose. The waitresses were so attentive and Jess was great behind the bar when Steve wasn't there. we went out daily and had an inclusive lovely packed lunch supplied by the hotel every day. Jackie the manager and her team really do everything to look after you. Our rooms were maintained brilliantly by the lovely housekeeping staff too, We will return next year to see our friends, which is what they all became. Thank you to you all.
