Such a gorgeous place to stay, wonderful rooms but the best thing about the place is the service. Sue and Ian couldn't do anything else to be more helpful, they were brilliant. Loved everything about it, will definitely come back and recommend to others. Thanks!!!

Just stayed for two nights and there is nothing I can add to the existing glowing reports. A real find and the location was enhanced the second day we were there by the opening of an excellent Wetherspoons pub fifty yards from the back door. In a town of unexciting pubs this is a great bonus to an already excellent... More

Very friendly and accomodating couple. Cycle friendly. Rooms were spacious and the shower hot. Bed was too soft for my liking, but it would not stop me staying again. Overall clean and tidy. Breakfast was good

Stayed here on our 1st night doing C2C. Was greeted with a very friendly welcome. We arrived wet & cold...Sue was sooo lovely & made me a hot chocolate & gave me a fleece to wear as our luggage hadn't arrived. Ian was really helpful by helping us to store our bikes. We hadn't had our evening meal yet but... More

The Caledonia was a real surprise; lovely and comfortable inside and the owners so welcoming. The whole guest house was spotlessly clean, and the bedroom we had (top floor) cosy and warm. Breakfast was really superb with a wide range of fruit and perfectly cooked and presented cooked dishes.There was also secure bike storage for C2C'ers. Good value and very... More

Stayed for a couple of nights when walking in the Lakes. Couldnt find anything reasonably priced in Keswick or Ambleside, so thought I would try Penrith. It was a good choice - nice little town and this is a good place to stay. Room was clean with everything expected and there was a good breakfast. Proprietors were friendly and obliging... More

Ian was very helpful indeed - coming out to show us the way, finding where the 508 bus to Ullswater goes from (a convenient nearby stop) and making sure we got back to the station on time. The breakfasts were delicious, and the bedroom had everything we needed.

We received a lovely warm welcome. The secure parking at the back was great for the bikes. Our family room was excellent - spotlessly clean and well looked after. Breakfast was brilliant with lots of choice. One of the nicest guest houses I've stayed in - I'd recommend it to anyone. Excellent value for money.
