I regularly stay at the Albany House and wouldn't want to stay anywhere else when in Penrith. Good location, comfortable rooms and an even better breakfast. The hosts are extremely welcoming and couldn't help me enough on my first visit to Penrith.

Great, modern and very comfortable. Stayed in a double en-suit room with an incredibly comfortable bed, there was even a home-made brownie there for me when I arrived! Delicious breakfast and plenty of choice. Not a bad word to say.

Travelling from Caithness to Newhaven we pulled in at Penrith looking for somewhere to stay the night and by very good fortune came upon Albany House. The room was spotless, the bed comfy, the toilet gleaming the breakfast excellent and the host charming. Wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else next time we are in the vicinity
