I stay in Penrith about once a month for work, and normally stay elsewhere. The room is quite nice, but the bed felt old- a lot of give when you sit on it.
No iron and ironing board in the room- you had to go to reception to collect one. I never understand why hotels don't provide one in each room- The Lounge only has a few rooms, surely not an excessive cost to put.
I was in a room above the bar- not too noisy, but it depends how light a sleeper you are.
Breakfast was the real disappointment. There were about 15 of us arrived at the same time, and one person serving was not enough. Since I had to tell them the night before what time I wanted breakfast- so they could have predicted the havoc.
I never have a cooked breakfast, so normally have fruit and cereals. The fruit selection was really poor- a fruit bowl with some aged fruit.
The coffee machine was broken so the waitress had to run downstairs to the bar to get coffee when anyone wanted some, leading to her being really stretched to serve teas, toast, and anything else.
One of the strange aspects of the breakfast room is that there was only one bowl of sugar and one jug of milk at one end of the room- so if you wanted anything you had to squeeze past other tables to get it. Strange.
I don't think I will stay there again.
