“Waverley, Workington, Cumbria”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 February 2012

Only stayed here for one night but it was reasonable for the price. Greeted by a very pleasant and efficient receptionist. The bar was well stocked and run by a personable, helpful young man. The room was clean, the bedlinen clean and fresh. The ensuite was clean and seemed to have been recently refurbished. Breakfast was a bit of a letdown. Not because of the content but because it was cold. It's served between 7am and 9am and I got down there for about 7.30 but the "buffet trolley" wasn't giving off any heat and all the cooked food was just barely warm.

Great Value hotel with beautiful spacious room, all amenities tea,coffee,flat screen freeview TV etc. comfortable bar with sky sports which was a bonus for my partner! Evening meal was excellent and breakfast a feast. All the staff were very friendly and could not do enough for us even though it was very busy. Could not fault our stay in any way will be back again when in the area.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2011

This was a late booking for the Bank Holiday weekend so I was delighted to get something for just £60 per room per night, far cheaper than anything else that was available at such short notice. The hotel is centrally located and although adjacent street parking was limited to 1 hour there was a free car park just a couple of minutes away. Check in was exceptioanlly quick and staff friendly and helpful throughout. The decor in room 6, a standard double, was tired and old fashioned and the plaster was crumbling behind the wallpaper. The room was small as was the bed, despite being a double and was very warm. The window needed to be open day and night and the temperature wasn't particulalry high outside. The floor boards creaked and groaned and there was an almost constant sound of running water, presumably from toilets beign flushed. On the plus side the room was well equiped. Plenty of clothes storage space, modern TV with Freeview, tea/coffee tray with biscuits, hairdryer, iron and ironing board and bath robes. The bathroom was compact, the sink small but it provided instant piping hot water although the light above the sink didn't work. The shower was fine and towels were changed daily if required. The breakfast was buffet style and included the usual cooked fayre. Eggs were only scrambled on the menu but I was provided with fried on request. There was also yoghurt, fruit, toast and Jams, fruit juice and cereals. The bar and restaurant were well used by non residents which must be a good sign but I only had 1 meal there and it was fine. All in all an ok hotel which represents good value for money

Room Tip: Go for a superior room unless you really want to save money

This is a hotel that does the job. Not a place for a romantic weekend away! Nice staff and the food varies from below average to above average, not much more than that. Breakfast is pretty rubbish to be fair. Rooms are ok, bathrooms ok. As I said, it does the job if your working in the area. The pub area is perfect for working men. Pool, darts, sports TV and good prices and offers on drink.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2011

Workington is not exactly a tourist hot spot but seems to have plenty of business visitors as when i visited the area i couldn't get in at my usual hotel and could only get in at the Waverley for one night, which surprised me as i hadn't had great review from colleagues who had visited previously who had warned me the hotel wasn't up to much. I was pleasantly surprised therefore to receive a very friendly and efficient greeting on arrival. The room provided was spotlessly clean and recently refurbished to a good standard. My only gripe would be that the TV was in a bit of an awkward position and the windows needed cleaning on the outside. The bathroom was nice and very clean. As with all hotels these days the room doors are a bit noisy which doesn't combine well when you have lots of construction workers leaving early. I didn't get to try the restaurant but the menu suggests it is reasonably priced and i noticed it seemed popular with guests when i looked in. Ideally i would have rated the hotel a solid good if the rating was available on TA and i certainly wont be disappointed if i have to return.
