No atmosphere - walked in for a drink, could hear a pin drop. A couple were eating in the bar area and all you could hear was the clink of their cutlery. Asked for a half and a baileys. No baileys in the bar so the young lass said I'll check upstairs. Returns 2 mins later to say none there... More

At the time of writing the Penningtons are also the owners of the Boot Inn, Eskdale. The Pennington , Ravenglass, is a exceptional experience, gorgeous food, our room was huge and comfortable, shower room/toilet was huge. Generally excellent value all round.

The hotel was busy and the team seemed to struggle at times, but for us it was fine. We enjoyed the experience as a whole we decided... More

Visited the Hotel for our evening meal while staying at the campsite. We were a little concerned that we would not be welcome, but we couldn't have been more wrong, the staff were super friendly and very welcoming. One bonus, we were allowed to take the dog in, on condition that we ate in the bar. We found the menu... More

We visited the Pennington Hotel for afternoon tea whilst staying with friends. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the service was excellent. The bar area where we ate was small but well set out and with it opening out on an outdoor eating area it felt quite roomy and airey. There was a nice friendly atmosphere and it... More

Ravenglass is a hidden gem and this hotel is modern and comfortable and an ideal place to stay, although some rooms are a bit quirky. The bar is bright and modern and breakfast is always tasty.

I haven't ticked the box for best meal ever plus I've clicked the solo visit as I'm the one who walks up to collect it, unless its raining then the Kitchen Porter delivers it Because I use the Pennington Hotel for many many reason's, ie. for lots of celebrations and of course for Christmas, and entertaining as I've reviewed before....

We were staying at the hotel & chose to dine there because of a lovely sounding menu. We both had 3 courses - all of which were excellent. As previous reviews state it is not the cheapest but I felt we got what we paid for - very high quality & delicious food. It did not seem at all overpriced... More
