Enjoyed everthing about The Pennington. Excellent staff,great food and fantastic breakfast. Would certainly use again. This was a holiday for me bought by kids. They really made a good choice. Ideal for the narrow gauge railway and fabulous countryside.

We have stayed at the Pennington a while back and found it to be very welcoming and dog friendly,so we decided to take our grandchildren and new dog. I'm afraid we found it a lot less friendly and more impersonal. Our family room no 19 was at the top of the building and had a lovely view,it was adequate and... More

really good breakfast and restaurant food. Nice location and nice bedroom. Only a couple of suggestions:room need net curtains as people can see inside. Tiles coming off in the bathroom need replacing. Very clean room and very nicely furnished. car park is a valuable feature in Ravenglass. Nice area to visit

Wonderful Hotel in a remarkable location. Very friendly and efficient staff, room was modern, spacious, very clean and best of all had an amazing view. Food was excellent. We went in search of some peace and quiet and found it although there is plenty to do in the area if required. Highly recommend .

I have stayed at the Pennington hotel numerous times whilst working in Cumbria. The rooms are always clean and the hotel well turned out. I normally avoid eating at any hotel I'm staying at, however I do have at least one meal when at the Pennington. The staff really make the difference (Bryonie and Lorna are especially helpful). Treat yourself... More

We've now been to this hotel twice as a family and had a superb stay each time. I also stay frequently here on business and have always found it a very good place to stay. The staff are friendly and helpful, the food is good, the location is excellent. The best thing for us, a family with three children, is... More

A very clean well run hotel. Check in was efficient and the room was up some stairs but there was an offer to take the case up which would be appreciated by less able guests. The room was good and spotless. The bar area was comfortable and the restaurant looked fine although we never ate there on this visit. Car... More

Had lovely stay here, we stayed in the family room at the top as we have 2 kids and a dog. There are quite a few flights of stairs to climb but it was worth it for the stunning views of the estuary. The breakfast was very good and set us up for the day, the service was excellent. The... More

Really friendly staff, very willing to help. We came in at around 10pm after being caught in the storm, and the staff made us some soup an sandwiches to warm up, even though the kitchen had closed! The hotel is very clean and cute, and we had a really filling breakfast this morning. Thank you for making us feel so... More

The Pennington family seem to own or have owned everything around Ravenglass, from the local castle Muncaster (very worth seeing) to this and most of the other hotels. My family and I had a week's holiday there in July and generally enjoyed it. The hotel is very dog-friendly and we managed to get a family room - basically a large... More
