Booked Albany House at short notice when we decided to go to Penrith for a couple of days. The reviews were spot on. The B'n B was all we hoped it would be and more....... The room was immaculate, the breakfast delicious and the hosts welcoming. We will definitely be returning!!!!

We had a great stay at Albany House; very comfortable and so welcoming (despite us accidentally turning up during dinner service). Rooms were well equipped, with snacks and robes to boot (the brownies are as delicious as the previous reviews say!). Breakfast was lovely. The house is well located for the station, which was great for us as we don't... More

Really lovely comfortable double room with bathroom en suite. Fresh fruit, tea, coffee, biscuits and brownies in the room, perfect after a day walking around Ullswater. Breakfast was superb. Loads of fresh fruit, cereal , yogurt and then cooked full English. We stayed here and then caught local bus to sights such as Ullswater, Aria force, pooley bridge etc...short walk... More

Stayed here one night whilst doing the C2C. Very clean, comfortable rooms and very good breakfast. Friendly staff advising of were to get a good evening meal and also offered secure lock up for our bikes. Sue was also happy to make us sandwiches, we provided the peanut butter, for our next days biking. No complaints at all.

This time I had a room with a double bed and two singles, a huge room with sofa and en-suite bathroom. My parents had a double en-suite room. My husband and two sons loved their comfy beds.The wi-fi... More

Stayed for one night. Lovely room, stylishly decorated, clean and fresh and with a modern, well laid out en-suite. Little things, like the brownie under the cloche and the robe in the bathroom added that bit extra. Susan and Archie were very attentive and helpful. The breakfast had excellent choice and the cooked food was delicious and well presented. I... More

When my girlfriend and I decided to travel to Penrith to meet with some friends, we were highly recommended to not only stay at Albany House but also to book a table (for 4) for dinner. Sadly we couldn't get in to stay but thankfully (in hindsight) we were able to book for dinner. I think the fact that I... More

We stayed there for one night with my girlfriend. We enjoyed the clean room with a very confortable bed and large bathroom! But the room itself is a bit small, we could not entirely open our suitcase ... The breakfast is also really good compared to other B&B!

Fantastic B&B, very clean and breakfast was excellent. Owners very accommodating regarding check in time. Friendly - but not over the top! Would recommend to anyone visiting Penrith as B&B is centrally located and convenient for most attractions.
