“A spot of luxury whilst doing C2C”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013 via mobile

The rooms were modern, clean and very comfortable beds. Excellent en-suite shower room. Lots of tea, coffee and bottled water.
The breakfast was very high quality, lots of lovely fresh fruit, porridge and beautifully cooked full English. Lovely touch of chocolate brownies in the room. I would definitely stay here again.

Just amazing we highly recommend this guest house.

As frequent visitors to the Lake District, this is our most favourite Bed and Breakfast. Archie and Susan are a genuinely delightful couple who always make you feel most welcome. They have invested a huge amount of time, money and effort in their business, which has resulted in a beautifully appointed and absolutely immaculate B and B that offers superb dining. Their breakfasts are fresh and tasty while the evening meals available at weekends with prior booking are a real culinary delight. As for the home made chocolate brownies in the room - just delicious! After each visit we honestly cannot wait to return. We thoroughly recommend this establishment.

A pity I only had one night here as I really enjoyed my stay. I was working in Penrith for one day so had to travel up from London the day before which is why I booked a guest house. The Albany was a real 'find'. So very comfortable and clean with lots of smashing finishing touches. Excellent breakfast too.

We recently had the good fortune to spend an evening with friends and a 60th birthday celebration. We had a fantastic meal and stayed overnight for BB. The rooms are spacious, beautifully clean with all amenities. Plenty of tea and coffee with nice touches in the room, of homemade chocolate brownies and biscuits.
Overall a fantastic night. Thanks to Sue, Archie and family.

We are a gay couple who stayed here for 2 nights early January. The place is ideally located, just minutes walk to the town centre of Penrith. We arrived early and they let us check in earlier. The room was a good size, clean with a very comfortable bed. The bathroom was large and spotlessly clean. The shower was powerful and also a good size. Breakfast was served between 8am and 9am. This is good if you want to get up and out early. Breakfast was cooked to perfection. We are vegetarian and there was a good choice for us. The hosts were pleasant and made us feel welcome. We highly recommend the bed and breakfast.

Certainly a 5 star place. Welcoming hosts and tastefully decorated accommodation which is spotlessly clean. Fabulous food. I just couldn't fault this place and will certainly go again. Highly Recommended as the place to go in Penrith
