About Moresby Hall Hotel

Under the new ownership of seasoned hoteliers, Moresby Hall has been lovingly preserved and sympathetically modernised, blending elegant historic architecture with contemporary boutique touches, to offer you a pleasant stay in luxurious surroundings.

Moresby is the perfect base for families, couples and individuals looking to explore the Lake District, for romantic get-aways, professionals working locally, for businesses looking for an awayday venue, and for couples looking to tie the knot. We’re also perfectly situated to host cyclists in the popular Coast to Coast challenge!

Called “one of the most important buildings in Cumbria” by English Heritage, like the gorgeous Georgian market and harbour town of Whitehaven, and the beautiful views across Cumbria, Moresby Hall Hotel might just be the best Britain has to offer. At least, we like to think so.

We’re winning awards!

Since we re-opened the hotel we’ve received lots of great reviews from our customers and now we’ve been recognised with a Traveller Review Award which scores us 9/10. We hope this is the first of many more.
