We stayed here for 5 nights, the service received from all members of staff was amazing, especially Hayley, Collette and Andy. The relaxed happy atmosphere is second to none, nothing is too much trouble. The hotel is very clean and all rooms are decorated well. The gardens and view make the hotel really special as we had a scenic view... More

We stayed in this lovely hotel for one night before continuing our journey to Scotland. A short distance from the M6 motorway we arrived to find a country hotel with beautiful grounds and uninterrupted views over the Cumbrian landscape. There is an outside seating area and we were fortunate enough to have glorious sunshine so sat out with a drink,... More

This is a difficult hotel to review. Much of the hotel itself and the grounds are simply wonderful, however our stay was not to the level I would expect for a hotel of this calibre (5 star guest accomdation, gold award, breakfast award). The approach and exterior of the hotel is beautiful and offers unrivalled views over the cumbrian landscape... More

This hotel has wonderful views across the countryside and is fortunate to employ several very good members of staff. We spent two nights here on a short break to explore the local area. Pros: A favourable location close to Penrith with easy access to the many local attractions which are largely for those who enjoy being outdoors. Always check the... More

Stopped here on route to Scotland. Played the lovely Penrith Golf Course before having dinner and stopped here overnight. Afternoon tea look very nice but we did not indulge. We had a pleasant four poster bedded room with a lovely view across the valley. The bathroom had been recently refurbished to a modern high standard though I am not sure... More
