We have made several visits recently, and we really enjoy the slightly old fashioned atmosphere. We are always treated as important guests. The menu is good and varied, and particularly good for our vegetarian friend. Well priced too!

Being unimpressed with the choice of hotels in central Penrith, I picked the Brantwood more or less as the closet alternative and I am exceedingly glad that I did so. Seemingly not much to look at on the outside and presenting myself at the bar rather than a reception desk I was not expecting much. How wrong I was. The... More

Sadly we weren't staying at Brantwood Country Hotel, but we found it for dinner close to where we were stopping en route to Glasgow. The staff were very welcoming and the menu was great. The homemade steak and ale pie was absolutely delicious, and the winter special menu is a very good deal. We'd love to go back next time... More

If you want to explore the lake district and want a place to stay at a reasonable price I recommend you try Brantwood. The restaurant was fully booked on the day we checked in. (Saturday night) I took this as a good indication that the food was good because it was local people who were eating there. The rooms were... More

The staff were lovely, helpful and accommodating. The food was good, vegetables slightly underdone which we like , breakfast was amazing! Room was not great. Bathroom was very cold, room was very cold, bed was very comfortable though. The rate we paid was very much reduced, I would not consider this to be good value at the higher price. One... More

My wife and I stayed here on the Saturday after New Year. We had the hotel more or less to ourselves for the afternoon which was wonderful. The restaurant was busy that evening however and there was a lovely atmosphere. The food was first class and the service exemplary. Our room(0/7)was beautifully cosy and as the hotel wasn't busy it... More

my family had a delicious meal at the restaurant and the staff were brilliant! They were very efficient , friendly and only too willing to please. The hotel was busy but this did not stop the staff from doing their job admirably. I would recommend it to anyone. Lovely relaxed atmosphere. We will definitely go again. Happy new year Brantwood!

This was our second visit to the Brantwood and I'm glad we went back. Only a couple of days before Christmas and it was very quiet. This time we decided to eat and the meal was very enjoyable and pretty good value. We were also in room 6 again which is very nice. The chap who runs it, think he's... More
