The Albany Hotel is a beautiful old house in the city centre and very well maintained. The house ist located in a nice and quite area. A excellent breakfast was served. The owners are very kind and helpful.

I had a lovely stay at Albany House. Very clean, comfortable and had two great nights sleep! Rooms are lovely, spacious and relaxing. The added extras of freshly baked brownies and fruit, plus bottled water shows the extra length Sue and Archie go to to make their guests happy. Next time I'm in Penrith, there's no other place I would... More

We were told about this lovely little place whilst eating out one evening In Penrith by a couple who raved about it. They told us that the couple who own the place open up for dining on a weekend but it is hard to get booked in. They were right, but I am pleased to say we did manage to... More

Just had two nights stay while in the area. Spotlessly clean and nicely decorated B&B. Very modern bathroom with shower. Breakfast was delicious and beautifully cooked. You do need a permit to park, provided on arrival. We managed to find a parking space without a problem in the area outside the B&B. Would definitely stay again and recommend to anyone... More

Rooms were very clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. Breakfast excellent! Great facilities and complimentary products all great in the rooms. Would have no hesitation to recommend this guest house if you... More

Our room was beautiful - decorated well, clean and a comfy bed. I liked the little touches like complimentary still water, fruit bowl and chocolate brownies. It was nice and quiet, so we slept well. Breakfast was served downstairs in a pretty dining room and was very tasty (enormous as well - didn't eat for aaaages). It was nicer than... More

Lovely guest house, we had the family room for 6 nights, there is ample space in the room and it is spotlessly clean. Freshly baked delicious chocolate brownies daily to go with the tea and coffee in the room. Oh and fresh fruit. If you book in over the weekend, make sure you book in for dinner in advance as...
