Our visit to Roundthorn was memorable! I was travelling with my elderly parents and decided to break our journey, but realised that the likelihood of a decent overnight stop was improbable. Roundthorn was recommended by another (fully booked) establishment. It was a brilliant choice: the welcome was warm and the quiet accommodation very comfortable and easily accessible. Although the menu... More

The grounds and hotel itself are excellent, great views and close enough to Penrith to walk into town if you wanted to. The Staff were very friendly, welcoming and accommodating and the room was great- especially the ensuite with a view! We had a fantastic time with great service which made us feel right at home; an excellent stay.

The welcome was warm and friendly and our well furnished spacious room provided us with everything that we needed for a comfortable short stay. The wonderful views from our window added to the pleasure of staying in this lovely house in a leafy suburb of Penrith. When booking online we opted for supper, without knowing what might be offered, and... More

We were travelling to Paisley from Suffolk and decided to break the journey. Penrith seemed a reasonable distance so we booked for one night. The room was excellent with fantastic views.

This hotel sits it a lovely location and has amazing views from its garden and rooms - well at least the room I had. The rooms were nice and tidy and sufficiently sized for me although the space round the bed may have been a bit cramp if two adults were getting ready at the same time. Again the ensuite... More

We stayed at the Roundthorn mid week for 1 night and found the whole experience fantastic, delightful helpful staff (n particular the receptionist and the waiter at dinner) good food and a lovely room with a great view over the Cumberland mountains (rm 6) if it's a relaxing stay you're after then look no further. Wouldn't hesitate to return.
