Nice overnight stay

Nice hotel, very clean and well decorated. No one on reception when we arrived but that was not a great drama. Bar was nice and service was good. Rooms are very nice, well decorated and furnished. Our room was a bit noisy as it was near the kitchen and the staff were a bit loud. There was also a... read more

This place is an absolute gem. My only complaint was the view from our room looked out at a roof but that's a very small thing. The room was immaculate, lovely spacious bathroom with bath/shower. Tea/coffee tray had a little cafetiere and fresh coffee, a little touch that makes a difference. We were there for a friend's wedding and the... More

We were staying nearby and stumbled upon this hotel and went in for a drink. The staff are young but very welcoming. My partner didn't know which cider to have but the barmaid let him taste them to see which he preferred. We decided to stay for a meal as nothing was too much trouble which we could have either...

My husband ordered a Guinness, but they had run out of Guinness even though they only stock bottled. There was only a choice of two draught beers and the... More

We come and stay at the Hotel and at Muncaster castle a lot and have eaten here in the past. Last night we went for just a meal. The service was defiantly not as good as it has been before, normally the staff are very attentive. There was a very large noisy group of adults in the bar area who... More

We live in Ravenglass and I have to say we're very fond of the Pennington Hotel and their young staff who are absoluetely selfless and so eager to be of service. We had hoped to dine with them in their lovely Estuary Restaurant, but I went down with a very heavy head cold, so we cancelled with very heavy hearts... More
