My husband and I descended upon the hotel about an hour before the evening menu was due to start! We were seated and were attended to swiftly and efficiently. The three courses that we had were beautifully presented and timed to perfection. We left feeling full to the right degree - any more would have been too much!! The meal was fantastic quality at a great price and I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone

Our one night stop over was most pleasant. There were two small issues: after booking in we found our room hadn't been prepared, and the shower needed more pressure for a room at the top of the building! A short walk around Penrith dealt with the room issue, a bath with the second. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the food excellent, and the hotel dog friendly. Although a bit traditional in it's decor, we would stay here again.

Room Tip: Spacious, tidy, and comfortable.

Actually this is a nice place and is probably the best and most famous hotel in Penrith. A touch old fashioned but that is also part of its charm. I guess you would call it traditional in style. However, a few contemporary decorative touches would help no end and cleaning up the front external features around the entrance would make it far more attractive.

Room Tip: Refurbed rooms are nice.
