I booked a room for me and my 2.5yr old son to share on a Saturday night. It's the kind of place that you know will have tired carpets and dust lurking everywhere. Any old hotel feels pretty dirty to me, and this place was no different. However, the bed side tables should not of had dust on them, these... More

I haven't been to a restaurant that ONLY offered 'English' food in a long while ( no fusion or Mediterranean here!) and typical offerings were Steak in a variety of guises, Chicken ditto, Dover Sole, Sea bass, one vegetarian dish which was pan fired vegetables, Lamb shank and so on. It came in HUGE portions, with efficient and friendly service... More

In Penrith for Masters rugby league festival decided to stay over. Station was available and well priced. Arrived at 11pm and had a few night caps. Friendly place and clean. Traditional pub with rooms. No lift! Note if you collect key earlier no probs in having late night out. Tea n coffee making in room. SWould return!

Unexpected stop on our way back to Scotland here due to our other nearby hotel we booked being sub standard. Friendly owners gave us a lovely double room freshly painted and with lovely victorian furniture. Too tired to try out the bar but would cone back when in area next.

We stopped here unexpectedly on our way home from Scotland, needing an evening meal (traffic was worse than we expected) - we only dined here. The staff was friendly and helpful; the food was good, a standard pub grub menu, but towards the high end of that spectrum. We were the only ones in at that hour on Easter Monday,... More

We spent valentine weekend up in Penrith. Was the only hotel available. No idea why? Hotel staff very friendly, room was great! More like a suite! Only gripe would be the wifi doesn't reach all the way up that room. Definitely recommend a stay!

The room was very comfortable and well-appointed. It was not explained to me on check-in that I needed to pre-order breakfast so I was disappointed when I came down in the morning. It might be polite to explain this to guests when they check in rather than being told that 'it says so on the website' and 'it says it... More

The food menu is small but offers everything you want from a traditional pub. There is a small separate dining area or you can choose to eat near the bar. The bar dining area can be a bit noisy/ crowded. There was a disappointing selection of beers/ales on tap. The food was unimpressive, but a good standard pub meal. I... More

Thanks for your feedback, not entirely sure where you are going with this but I will try and reply to your concerns. Our main menu has a choice of 7 starters, 12 main courses not to mention a daily specials board and mid week lite bite menu. I don't think anyone would call this a 'small' menu. You are correct...
