We wanted a quiet, relaxing one night away........and that's exactly what we got! The hotel has a great location. It is only a two minute walk to the Ravenglass & Eskdale Steam Railway station with its pub, the Ratty Arms, and a 30 seconds walk from the Inn at Ravenglass (which has a fabulous fish restaurant). Considering it was the... More

Our original choice The Inn which just serves seafood were only doing a limited service nothing of which appealed, so to the Pennington it was.On walking in our family of five were greeted with a friendly smile and give a choice of seating, drinks duly...

Stayed here for one night. Room was good, breakfast good, service good. Nice toiletries in the room and a very comfy bed. Only negative was the evening menu had very limited choice for vegetarians. I'd like to say it had one option but it didn't. In fairness to the chef he did rustle up a mushroom and asparagus risotto. (My... More

We had a family suite with what appeared to... More

We arrived at the Pennington after driving from North Wales. We were greeted by very friendly staff who were able to help us get into our room quickly and arrange our dinner plans. The meal in the restaurant was delicious! Comfortable, clean and quiet room. The only problem we had was that we were not able to get onto the... More

My husband and I plus dog have just returned home from a five night stay at The Pennington and it was every bit as good as when we were there in February. The staff couldn't be more helpful and they were so pleasant and made us feel so welcome. We felt a bit strange as it was the first time... More

We stayed 1 night with our dog. A disappointment with the room (4) was dealt with really well by Sarah, who was excellent throughout, and helped us move to a much nicer room. I'd booked a superior room as we need a king bed, but 4 is a small stuffy dark double (4'6 bed) room. (reading earlier reviews, room 4... More

The internal appearance of the Hotel is very good - modern and welcoming. I was eating with my daughter, son-in-law & their two children, ages 15 month & 4 years. Both children are very well behaved when eating in restaurants. The first night a foreign visitor asked my grandson not to be noisy although he was only listening quietly to... More
