The bed was spacious and gave us both a great night's sleep. The bathroom was clean and we were provided with bathrobes, which added a little touch of luxury. Good...

Stayed here for one night as a stopover on the way to Aviemore. The rooms are lovely with a nice boutique hotel feel. The room had a beautiful big bathroom with a large corner bath as well as a proper shower cubicle. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. All in all a great choice and would highly recommend.

The food was thoroughly enjoyable and the service was quick and efficient without feeling like you were being rushed. Also paid £130 for overnight stay and...

The availability of Afternoon Tea in Penrith can be a problem. The George do not put this meal high on their priority list and the North Lakes insist that you take tea in the Spa?? So we normally end up driving to the lakeside hotels. However, now that we know that the Roundthorn can provide a very nice afternoon tea...

An outstanding Family Run Hotel in the heart of Penrith. The hotel is simply beautifully presented throughout, with tastefully decorated public areas and individually appointed bedrooms that boast every possible added extra from bottled water, toiletries, and tissues to tea and coffee and biscuits. The breakfast tops what was a very enjoyable stay with a wide selection of fresh fruit,...
