The food is simply delicious, the quality of the produce is obvious, the Chef is outstanding and it's always a pleasure to chat with him and his lovely family at the end of the evening. A complete dining...

I regularly stay at the Albany House and wouldn't want to stay anywhere else when in Penrith. Good location, comfortable rooms and an even better breakfast. The hosts are extremely welcoming and couldn't help me enough on my first visit to Penrith.

I've had the pleasure of staying at Albany House on a couple occasions and enjoyed my stay. The rooms are fabulous, comfy, spotlessly clean and finished with a surprise brownie cake and chocolate in a tin. All breakfasts options are there, formed of quality ingredients and prepared to perfection. Finally the hosts are very welcoming and for me personally, they...

Only one simple word of this guest experience is PERFECT.

Not the least, the host family are friendly and helpful and care you as a member of their family. All happenings there are...

Great, modern and very comfortable. Stayed in a double en-suit room with an incredibly comfortable bed, there was even a home-made brownie there for me when I arrived! Delicious breakfast and plenty of choice. Not a bad word to say.

Travelling from Caithness to Newhaven we pulled in at Penrith looking for somewhere to stay the night and by very good fortune came upon Albany House. The room was spotless, the bed comfy, the toilet gleaming the breakfast excellent and the host charming. Wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else next time we are in the vicinity

Immaculate B&B which seems to go the extra mile on every small detail. I am pretty fussy but could not pick any faults with Albany House. We stopped overnight whilst cycling the c2c route from Whitehaven to Tynemouth. Our dirty wet clothes were whisked away and washed and dried by next morning at no extra cost. The room, furnishings, TV,...
