Stayed here on business 26th April 2017. From the start I received a very warm welcome on early arrival. Sea view from the room was fab with wonderful sunset at the end of the day! Evening meal of smoked salmon and prawns was very refreshing and tasty. Main meal of lamb Henry was the best lamb I have eaten in...

When I turned up I wasn't alerted prior to the event that there wasn't any wheelchair accessibility! When I alerted the staff inside when I arrived that I would like some assistance they didn't appear to care! I was told there was nothing they could do! I nearly cried as it meant my daughter and I couldn't attend and they...

Thank you for your comments unfortunately the Physic evening you were attending was a private function not Organized by ourselves. We as a company try to accommodate all customer/guest needs but due to the age and position of the hotel we are unable to offer access for wheelchairs.

Clean enough room , but for £140 for a small family room booking direct, it just was far too expensive. Shower was of the electric instant type .Cupboard etc was of the cheap laminated variety , but newish. Staff very nice but could not extend my check out request to noon. Room check out was a strict 11 am after...

Friendly staff, modern decor. pleasant restaurant, good menu. Bar a bit impersonal. good real ale. Close to harbour other pubs and restaurants nearby. Room at the top, no lift so need to be fit. Good shower, no bath in this room. Breakfast spoilt by poor coffee.

Overall very friendly but room we were given (room 12) was freezing, didn't have central heating but a very noisy wall mounted hot air blower, which we had to switch off when we left the room as 'it will set off the fire alarm'. Couldn't sleep with it on. View from room of port very nice.Beds were a bit lumpy....

Nice 2 night break with the friendly local team. Room was small but clean and comfortable. Good range of drinks and food was a pleasant surprise . would wish for better coffee and a more relaxing lounge area for the price tag

The Golden Lion in Maryport is a fine hotel right on the harbor. We had an upgraded room with a view of the harbor. The room was very nice and roomy with a few extras like a fruit basket, robes, and bottled water. Very comfortable bed, nice large bathroom and quiet as soon as the football game crowd at the...

My friend and I had about 90 minutes to visit Maryport between trains and fancied some lunch and a pint of real ale. We had been recommended to visit the Lifeboat Inn which was busy but had no ale on, so stuck for choices, we crossed the road to the Golden Lion and were pleasantly surprised to find a decent...

I stayed in a single room for one night. The room itself was perfectly nice. Clean and simply decorated. The bed really could have been better. It was very squeaky and the mattress was lumpy and badly needs replaced. My room had a small vestibule style area with a motion sensor light. However this went off every time I moved...

We stopped here for our evening meal. The best thing about the Golden Lion is the exceptional service. A blonde lady served us and she was friendly, professional and efficient! The food was nice and we enjoyed sitting in the hotel style restaurant which had an excellent WiFi signal. It was cosy and warm and we would go back.
