Second visit to Albany House this year and had a lovely two nights stay. This really is a first rate B&B - spotlessly tidy, beautifully maintained and decorated, the comfiest beds ever and Sue and her family go the extra mile to make you feel welcome. Also the extra little touches like chocolate brownies and biscuits make such a difference.... More

This B&B was a bit more up-market, and not so friendly as others I have stayed in, but very efficient and professional. The beds were very comfortable and the breakfast was lovely, which included fresh fruit. The extra we paid per person was probably worth it.

We had a wonderful and comfortable stay here. A great location to many beautiful restaurants just around the corner. Fantastic breakfast and the best chocolate brownies! Thank you for a great stay. Wifi was very much appreciated as was the bottled water.

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
