Positive Reviews

Delicious dining

You can expect to enjoy a delicious start to the day at the Best Western Plus Castle Inn Guests report the Cumberland breakfast is particularly good Also impressive are the evening meals at the Ritson Restaurant and the choice of bar snacks at the Castle Inn Tavern.

Excellent location

Perched high on a hilltop, this hotel offers views that by all accounts are unbeatable If you can bear to drag yourself away, you’ll find it’s the perfect spot for hikers If you want to explore further afield, there’s a host of popular Lake District destinations within easy reach.

Quality rooms

Guest reviews indicate that you’ll find the rooms at the Best Western Plus Castle Inn are of a high standard and may even exceed your expectations Rooms are spotlessly clean with a good choice of well maintained amenities The bathrooms are modern and spacious.

Negative Reviews

Jacuzzi regularly breaks down

Reviews that are some months apart note that the jacuzzi was broken This implies that either it breaks down regularly or that it broke some time ago and the hotel hasn't bothered to fix it Neither is ideal.

Executive rooms might disappoint

Although guests tend to be happy with the quality of the rooms, those who stayed in executive rooms were less impressed Some of the guests found the beds were uncomfortable while others thought they lacked the extra touches you might reasonably expect from an upgraded room.

Some room for improvement

Guests indicate that while their stay was a generally positive experience, there is room for improvement in some areas Issues include not being able to reserve a table in the restaurant, a lack of evening entertainment and that some areas look a little dated.
