We stayed for a night at the end of a road trip to Scotland. Very nicely situated and a very attractive building with lovely grounds and outdoor seating. The staff were all lovely and the public areas were smart and pleasant. Our room was large but poorly laid out. There was a large entrance lobby which served no purpose. The bathroom was large and well equipped. The beds were comfy but the headboards were loose...no good for honeymooners! Our radiator was cold before we went out so the lady downstairs said she'd ask the maintenance man to check it. When we got back the room was like a sauna and we couldn't turn it down! We called reception, someone came up but they couldn't turn it down either, but they said it went off at 9.15 anyway...we didn't use the restaurant so can't comment. Breakfast was very nice but the breakfast room was a bit small.
There was nothing really wrong with the hotel but it certainly didn't feel like a 5 star in the guest room.

This is a lovely small hotel with excellent service. The staff are so friendly and go out of their way to make sure everything is perfect with your stay. I would definitely stay here again.
The food is really good, especially the cooked to order breakfast.
I must also mention the amazing views of this beautiful area.

Stayed here for four nights to explore the lake district. The hotel has a wonderful aspect overlooking the distant peaks of the lakes. Very friendly and attentive staff with fab Cumbria breakfast we stayed in room 6 overlooking the peaks great four poster bed and huge shower room our room was kept immaculate by the lovely lady who cleaned for us a credit to the hotel....all the staff were. The hotel is literally a stones throw from Penrith town centre although beware if you walk it it will be uphill coming back !. Overall this place is lovely and we thoroughly recommend it for a stay in the lakes,nearest lake is Ullswater with steamers travelling the full length of it. Our thanks to Roundthorn staff who made our stay so comfortable. I have posted a couple of our room pics.

We spent a pleasant couple of nights on a dbb basis. The hotel has views over Penrith towards the lakes & hills when the sun shines (dissapears when the mists roll in). The hotel was a little worn but comfortable with good service. The food was more about popular choices but good ingredients and carefully prepared for dinner and breakfast. They have a big hospitality suite for weddings but fortunately none on when we were there. Overall a good 4 star and would recommend.

A warm welcome on arrival, spacious room on the top floor with comfortable bed and well-appointed en suite (separate bath and shower). Breakfasts were top quality - with a wide choice. Comfortable lounge and bar area. Staff were very helpful. Parking plentiful and easy. A 20 minute walk into town but worth it for the views over the Lake District and Eden Valley.

Room Tip: NB top floor room was up a narrow staircase so definitely for the fully mobile guest, but was quiet...

We have just spent a four night break in this lovely country house hotel. The staff were most helpful and friendly. Food was very good, particularly the Cumbrian Breakfast.
The hotel is very quiet and offers a peaceful relaxing experience in a beautiful setting.

Room Tip: Quiet, great location,good food

We had breakfast and one evening meal as we had to travel elsewhere. I cannot fault the hotel. Peaceful but handy for the lakes. Would definitely return if in the area.The staff were helpful and the rooms had wonderful views.

Room Tip: All good. Roof rooms have less good views that first floor.
