We usually stay at the Trout when we’re in Cockermouth, but on this visit they were full (on a non-descript Thursday night in October ?). They said they were more corporate these days and often were. So we took our lowly non corporate selves down the Allerdale Court instead, and we were very glad we did.
What a terrific hotel! The service is friendly and personable like a guest house but in a big old town centre hotel. And old it is – our room at the front was like stepping back into Georgian times: terrific raised four poster bed and exposed beams all over the place. Brilliant! This place just oozes character, but is clean and comfortable all the same.
When we arrived the receptionist insisted on bringing the two lattes (proper ones by the way) we ordered to our room so we could get settled, and the breakfast was excellent (great sausage...to be expected round these parts tho’).
We certainly shan’t bother with the Trout again – compared to the Allerdale it is overpriced and bland. Only thing to mention is, there is no car park – but there are plenty within spitting distance and free if you arrive at the right time.
To conclude: great value and highly recommended.... whether you be corporate or not.
