"Good service and good food staff friendly and professional, room was clean and spacious excellent. Didn’t find much to do around hotel but probably baron due to this corona virus. Didn’t stop the second night as pubs and restaurants were closed from the Friday."

The Old Ginn House Inn is a 17th-century farmstead converted into a family-run 4-star inn built around a courtyard and patio area. 

The Ginn Room bar and restaurant serves Cumbrian craft ales and dishes prepared with locally sources ingredients. Its name comes from its original use as a room for ginning -- the process in which horses walk around to turn a grindstone and crush crops. 

The market town of Workington, a 5-minute drive from the hotel, is a popular shopping destination, and is also home to the Helena Thompson Museum (which tells the story of Workington's social and industrial history, and also has an extensive collection of 18th-century clothes), the 14th-century Workington Hall and the 19th-century Jane Pit coal mine remains.

The hotel has a variety of room types, including a Superior Double room that features a luxury bathroom with Jacuzzi bath. All rooms have tea- and coffee-making facilities and superfast fibre Wi-Fi.

A lovely Inn with great rooms, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was fabulous, my Partner had full English and I loved the Porridge, great selection to meet every taste. The Inn also has its own Restaurant and the food was fabulous, generous portions and plenty of choice all freshly cooked to order. The staff are very friendly and approachable and nothing is too much trouble. A very good offer including the free bottle of wine, Malbec and good quality. Thank you

All staff were extremely welcoming and helpful. Our room was perfectly clean. The restaurant has a vast choice on the menu (almost too much to choose from) and each meal, whether breakfast or evening, was excellent, plentiful and good value.
