The propriertors' (it seems to be mother and daughter) need to establish if they are a business or family home ..... The customer service proposition to say poor is an understatement ...

Moved car and parked at the rear of b and b overnight. Lovely clean and well equipped room. Very comfortable bed. Super... More

Booked into Abbey House for one night as its location suited our needs. It is a traditional B&B run efficiently by helpful, friendly staff. The room was spacious, clean and well equipped. Comfortable bed, clean linen and plenty of cupboard/drawer space. The bathroom was clean, well stocked with towels and toiletries and had a good shower. Breakfast (and we had... More

Stayed in Abbey House just for the one night and after messing the owner around by booking then cancelling and then needing to rebook she kindly offered the room back to myself. She is also always available in the mobile so I had no issues with contact. I stayed in a single room. It's small but very cosy. Bathroom was... More

Being a winner of 'Four in a Bed', we expected top notch. After walking 15 miles we would have liked a nice hot shower. Warm is what we got. No extractor fan in the bathroom, so steamed up quite a bit. Room was spacious, was a family room and there were only two of us. Beds were comfy. Breakfast basic.Samantha,... More

I am very sorry that you felt that your shower was warm at best, I am afraid that this is the first I have heard of a problem with the hot water and there is nothing I can do for you now. I do wish that you would say something at the time and then the problem can be solved... More

This b & b was well kept. The owner welcomed us. Room was clean and furnished beautifully. Breakfast was ample and tasted great. We liked the idea that you could buy a lot of the pictures that were on the walls. Would stay again.

We chose Penrith at last minute, I realise that there are plenty of better places to stay in that part of the country, however we were four friends travelling from different parts of the country and this suited. The bookings were made for four rooms, for one night, and we were given a flat rate of £48 each per room... More

I had one night in Penrith as I had been intending to watch a football game (which was cancelled on the day of my arrival), but I had a very good experience with this guest house, that offered a most pleasant stay in homely, central surroundings. Well recommended.

Last minute booking for 1 night Easter Sat, and couldn't have been much happier. A warm welcome from the owner, lovely well decorated room with kingsize double and en suite shower room. Lovely touches such as bottled water and cookies in a jar. Good wifi access.Breakfast was very good and the owner had several suggestions for an evening meal.
