The George Hotel is something of a local treasure, situated in the pretty market town of Penrith, perfectly located to explore the Eden valley with Ullswater and the Lake District just a few miles away. The lounge is popular with locals for morning coffee and cake, lunches and afternoon teas. The 2 AA Rosette Devonshire Restaurant's silver and ruby red decor, truly sets the scene for a superb dining experience, with menu’s that focus on simple, fresh, local produce. For more casual drinking and dining, relax in the vibrant Dappers Bar within the hotel.

Really enjoyable short break; helpful staff, comfortable room and food in the restaurant and a breakfast that gave a great start to the day. There were plenty of spaces to simply sit, relax and unwind.

lovely old building with many original features, our room was huge with superking bed, large bathroom and lounge area. However we were situated above the reception toilet so we heard the hand dryer blowing away. We had the DBB package which was great value. Would definitely
