This was an absolutely delightful meal - I had the lamb mains (highly recommended) and my wife had the mixed grill. Sadly, there is a lack of decoration - only prints by a local artist to lighten the sterility. Add this touch and here would be a most charming restaurant experience, but I stress that the food was top-notch.

Stayed here for three nights. The hotel is in a lovely position right near the estuary with walks all around. The staff were lovely and friendly, our room was clean and the wet room was good - could be great with a couple of additions; the food was lovely - be aware the portions are Cumbria sized = large, there...

My mum and I have just gotten home from a three night stay at the Pennington. Having used the hotel many times before, this visit was of the usual high quality we've become accustomed with in Ravenglass. Check-in is always swift and staff are welcoming and accommodating with all requests. The rooms are all beautiful, comfy beds and modern bathrooms,... More

Stayed here for 2 nights and came back yesterday. Had a great time, we were in room 5 which had plenty of space for a family of 3. The staff at the hotel were really friendly. Breakfasts were really good with plenty of choice. We didn't eat an evening meal at the hotel as we arrived late on the first... More

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

We ate here easter Sunday and had a great meal - the staff that served us were lovely & professional but we did overhear a heated discussion about a customer's complaint later on when sat in the lounge area which should really have been taken out of ours and another couple in the rooms earshot -unprofessional. Think the hotel should... More
