We broke our journey from Derbyshire to New Lanark at Penrith, and were very happy that we chose Roundthorn. From the welcome on reception, through to the friendly chat with the gardener/handyman on departure, the staff were without exception polite, friendly and helpful. Not a large hotel, but the rooms were very spacious and well-maintained, as were the grounds. A... More

Adding some objectivity to this acclaim my wife is a professional Cordon Bleu with considerable experience of high-end large scale events, and to be frank, I am not accustomed to dishing out plaudits on a casual basis!...

The bed was very comfortable and I had an excellent night's sleep. The lounge menu is limited as others have said but there is something for everyone and the chicken I... More
