The Pennington is a lovely, immaculately clean boutique hotel that is perfectly located for exploring the Cumbria countryside. The staff are friendly, the rooms of a reasonable size and the beds, whilst not being the most comfortable I've slept in - are adequate. The breakfasts are good (scrambled eggs with do try the smoked salmon) although the lamb broth I... More

We chose this hotel on recommendation from a friend. The accommodation was good, but we had an issue with the heating. Eventually this was resolved and after that the staff were very helpful and attentive! We strolled along to the Inn at Ravenglass which is owned by the same family, to book for dinner, they were extremely busy but Lorna... More

My wife and I were staying at Ravenglass last weekend for our anniversary. We decided to visit the Pennington Hotel for our dinner rather than it's newly opened sister business 'The Inn at Ravenglass' two doors down..........big mistake. My wife was looking forward to fish and chips advertised on the menu board, the waitress came back a minute later with... More

My Husband and I stayed for 2 nights recently while down in Ravenglass for a wedding. We had a standard room which was lovely and clean, well equipped (even with a one-cup cafetiere and fresh coffee - marvellous), comfortable and most importantly, quiet. Check in was easy and quick. Someone came in to clean the room while we were out.... More

Think the hotel should... More

We stayed in the Family room for three nights - when I say room it was nearly a suite with a king size in one room and two singles in the other leading to the en-suite. Very clean room, very comfortable bed - tv could have been a bit bigger! Only slight moan was that the staff smoking area is... More

We stayed here for Easter Sunday night as we were taking a ride on the Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway on Easter Monday. Apart from the long wait at reception to check in, service and food were excellent. It would have been nice to have a room with an estuary view but, as it was only for one night it didn't... More
