Lovely quiet setting. Afternoon tea here was enjoyable. Too much to eat in one go, but the waiter was kind enough to wrap it to take home. Friendly, attentive staff. We didn't feel rushed and enjoyed our afternoon. Would recommend it.

Situated above the town of Penrith, the Roundthorn is set in magnificent countryside with far reaching views. Just a few rural houses around. We did not eat here, but enjoyed a drink in the very comfortable... More

Having stayed here on many occasions over the last two years, it's way past time I expressed (for public consumption) my unreserved thanks to the owner and each member of staff. I stay in hotels all over the UK, some of which consider themselves to be prestigious, I would call them pretentious. This hotel has provided me with peace and... More

BEFORE THE EVENT For the 6 months leading up to the ceremony, we never waited more than 6 or 7 hours for an email response to any of our questions. The level of communication was absolutely fantastic throughout. We... More
