The hotel was very peaceful and in a very quite location. Ideal for walking and exploring the lakes (45 min drive). We went for the one night bnb and one night dinner option for £149.99 which was very reasonable. Have to say the fish and chips might of been the best I had ever had! The rooms are spotless and...

We had dinner in the restaurant last night while staying at the Coachman's Quarters at Muncaster Castle. The meal was absolutely delicious and so fresh and creative - it would beat any Michelin starred restaurant. The roast cod with tiny crayfish, samphire grass, green beans etc. was amazing. Every single flavour came through and yet made a divine unified combination.... More

Just back from a stay here - location was fantastic, brought out 2 dogs (only £10 extra cleaning charge for both) and were placed in a lovely downstairs room right next to a door out onto the estuary front. Parking is easy, ate in the restaurant & all meals/courses were fantastic. Only small negative was could hear a fair bit... More

'Stayed here for our Ruby Wedding Anniversary with our Daughter, her husband, and our Grandchildren - Very clean and pleasant in a beautiful location - The evening meals on offer however were not to our tastes, and so we ate elsewhere - 'Would recommend this hotel for a weekend away

We booked into the Pennington and arranged for friends to join us for dinner. There was no one in reception when we arrived. We had to ask in the bar about our booking but they knew nothing which was very embarrassing for us and our guests. Fortunately ( and I now understand why) the restaurant was very quiet. The service... More

Ravenglass is a beautiful village in an estuary, the Pennington is really central in the area and well signposted. If you are travelling to visit the Ravenglass and Eskdale railway it couldn't be better located. The service was always good and the restaurant well served with local fish specials as well as standard fare. Breakfast was excellent, the rooms were... More

We booked into the Pennington Hotel on Friday late afternoon and to be honest from the moment we arrived everything (the room, the staff, the food, the cleanliness etc., etc.,) were absolutely excellent. Nothing was too much trouble. The room was large, light and clean, lovely big fluffy bathtowels, an excellent selection of toiletries, a good range of complimentary goodies... More

Everyone we interacted with was inviting, helpful and friendly. Our family room was clean, bright and spacious. Although our family room didn't have a view of the estuary, my mother's room did and the view was incredible. The view from the front of the hotel is amazing and we were lucky to enjoy two nights with beautiful sunsets. We dined... More
