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.

Just had an overnight stay and was very pleased with my choice of venue. The whole house is well decorated and very clean. Our room looked as though it had just been decorated and our bathroom looked new, both were lovely. Lots of little touches in the room (chocolate brownie, nice toiletries, cotton wool, hot chocolate) that made the world... More

We recently stayed overnight at Albany House. Very well presented bedroom and en-suite. Thoughtful finishing touches including homemade chocolate brownies - delicious! Excellent breakfast. We look forward to visiting again soon

Lovely B & B, owners very welcoming and helpful. Welcome tray in room perfect - usual tea & coffee but hot chocolate too, small square of brownie with chocolate eclair sweet on top, biscuits and a basket with a few items of fruit. Toiletries provided & waffle bathrobe too. Very quiet and comfortable, wifi excellent. Breakfast delicious, best scrambled eggs... More

We recently stayed at Albany House, in the family room. It is a perfectly fine place to stay but I did feel slightly disappointed given all of the 'excellent' reviews here on Trip Advisor. It's clean, the family room was spacious enough and the breakfast was nice, but it somehow lacked a certain something that would allow me to rate... More

I stayed here for two nights to visit my Daughter and Son-in-law in Penrith after they had a baby. The owners were so friendly as soon as I arrived, showing me to my room, which was immaculate. I had booked a single room but got a room with a huge double bed and a single bed, all comfy. There was... More

My wife and I have dined here maybe six times over the last six months or so, so my review is based on our dining experience rather that the B and B experience. That being said, if things upstairs are anything like downstairs any one booking an overnight stay here would be in for a treat! I would definitely recommend... More

ideally placed B&B for a stopover on a drive from North Devon to Edinburgh. Easy to find, with plenty of places to get an evening meal within walking distance. Clean, warm and welcoming. Good breakfast that set us up for the rest of the day. On street parking, but no problem finding a space.

I have now stayed here on a few occasions whilst working in the area and once with my partner on our way up to Scotland. The rooms are superb and the staff are excellent but the absolute winner for me is the breakfast!!! When working in the North West again I will Always stay here!!! See you soon
