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,...

I stayed at this lovely hotel for one night on a business trip. My room was huge, spotlessly clean with good WIFI but above all peace and quiet! I ate in the hotel in the evening, the food was superb and the staff very attentive and friendly.HIGHLY recommended.

Great venue for celebrating things like weddings and anniversaries, and the food was fantastic, the meat just fell apart. Staff all friendly and very spacious. Not somewhere where you would go for a casual meal but very nice nonetheless.

What a great venue for our Cyclewise Christmas Party. The service, meal, staff and beautiful xmas decorations made for a perfect evening. Nothing was too much trouble and we felt we got excellent value for money. 11/10 and we can highly recommend to anyone looking for something special.

We were a party of twelve for Christmas lunch and have to say that this is one of the best establishments I have visited for a celebration in a long time. The attention to detail was really good. Decorated table. Crackers, hats and a beautifully decorated room just for our party. We had decided our menu choices beforehand but before...

I was not arriving until around 11pm so I rang up in advance. Made very welcome when I arrived and was shown to my room. Was also asked if I wanted a breakfast to take away as I was leaving so early. Staff were very friendly when arrived, and my breakfast was left on reception with a nice handwritten note...

We stayed here sadly, just for one night on our way up to Scotland. We had a friendly welcome and nothing was too much trouble. Dinner and breakfast were both very good. Our room was beautiful-an unexpected treat to be in a four poster. I couldn't fault this lovely and reasonably priced hotel. Thank you for your hospitality.
