We were up in Penrith for my great nephew's christening so we only stayed for the Saturday night. I chose the George because it was within easy walking distance of both the church and my niece's house and given the one way traffic flow and Penrith's disc parking system I'm glad that I did. The hotel met my expectations and...

We stayed here for just a night, and we wished we stayed longer - the hotel was so beautiful and the staff were all SO lovely!!! My only negative review was having to drag our suitcases up the stairs... Having said that we never asked if there was a lift - but other then that would definitely recommend this hotel....

Had dinner on a recent visit to Penrith. Food was tasty and the service was good. Whenever we ordered drinks we had always to ask for coasters. When a chilled drink is placed on a wooden table in a warm room, condensation forms and gathers in a pool on the table. Then when you lift your glass to have a...

Dear Melsomma Lovely review and thank you for taking the time to write a review. Yes the floors are uneven in places but you are quite right that this leads to the hotels quirkiness. You know you are walking in history. I am delighted that the staff went over and beyond and your description of your stay is wow! Fabulous!...
