“very clean and great breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2014 via mobile

Just returned from a two night stay here at Easter weekend for a hen do. We had exclusive use of the b&b. The rooms are all spotlessly clean as are the bathrooms.
The cooked breakfast was served hot with not a hint of grease and was made to order the sausages were the nicest I've had in a long time. There's also a wide selection of fruit, cereals, pastries, and yoghurt.
Don't forget to check the tin near the kettle in the rooms, it contains chocolate brownies!

Stayed April 2014, traveled with friends

What can I say, arrived for a weekend to celebrate my daughter getting married. Susan the landlady met us and was very nice and helpful. Shown to our rooms, which were beautiful, clean,and supplied with plenty of complimentary goodies. The breakfast choice was amazing and cooked by a fully qualified chef. Lots of choices and served in a lovely room.
I can thoroughly recommend this Bed and Breakfast. Excellent.

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent. Most on suite and comfortable beds.

What a wonderful experience staying at the Albany. A great location giving easy access to the lake district as well as a great stop-over point on a longer journey north or south. Very comfortable en-suite room gives pleasant surroundings for relaxing, The service is excellent and variety on offer for breakfast second to none, I recommend the full english...you won't be disappointed.. The level of service is the best I've experienced anywhere.

I have now had the pleasure of dining here three times and will be back....
The ambiance is perfect, the service personal.
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 pleasure

Ive stayed at the Albany regularly and this in my opinion is one of the best B&Bs in the UK. Great location for the Lakes, suberb rooms with en suite bathroom, fantastic food and the hosts and family are extra special, making the whole experience memorable! Nothing is too much trouble and everything is immaculate. This should be classed as a 5* hotel........its that good.
Try the fish and poached eggs for breakfast!!
Wouldnt hesitate to recommend this hotel. You will not regret booking here!

Room Tip: Ask for the en suite rooms or the family room....they are special!

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 went beyond the call of duty to help. I look forward to visiting again.
