“A fantastic place to stay!”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

I stay at Brooklands quite regularly for work and it is fantastic. The breakfast is incredible with very generous portions. Sometimes I have to leave before breakfast is served and Leon is always more than happy to accommodate, even if it is 6am! The rooms are warm, the showers are hot and powerful and I really couldn't fault the B&B.

Room Tip: Stayed in most rooms and all quiet.

There were three couples in our group and it was unanimous that this was the BEST B&B we have ever stayed in. The rooms are beautiful, exceptional decor and equipped with every imaginable amenity. The bathroom was beautiful and stocked with top of the line toiletries. A very nice touch! The breakfast was phenomenal with a vast selection of items cooked to order and to perfection.

The host, Leon, was extremely knowledgeable of the area and was very accommodating. A definite 5 star plus!

The B&B is located a short (5 minute) walk from the very picturesque downtown with a great selection of restaurants.

Great place to stay, great people and fantastic food. I used to use b and bs a lot a few years ago and have stayed away from them since as what you see on the web is not always what it looks like when you get there. This place was even better than it looked on the web and Leon was really good. The breakfasts will be talked about in our group, all others compared to it for years to come.

Room Tip: We had four poster room, which was a little over the top for me (had to throw the curtain on my side...

Centrally located and just a few minutes walk from some good eateries, this guest house smacks of quality - from the decor to the in-room facilities to the bed linen to the fantastic breakfast ( the latter being one of the best breakfasts I've ever had in a B&B - an array of fresh fruit to wonderful fry-ups ). Leon the co-owner is quietly friendly and clearly knows the town and general area well. At £78 for the room, excellent value !

Room Tip: If you're over 6'2", ask for a bed that doesn't have a bed-stead at the bottom of i...

Our first time at The Brooklands; we had two rooms for two nights and were very impressed with the overall stay. The rooms were immaculate and quite spacious, each very well fitted out with all the little touches in place. Beds were very comfortable and a good size (I'm 6ft4). Bathrooms were kept in tip top condition and were spotlessly clean.
A variety of breakfast fayre was available from cereals, continental to the "Full English", which we both can highly recommend.
The owner was most helpful with the local parking, which in Penrith can sometimes be problematic - a council problem not the owner!
A very warm welcome, great rooms, good food. Pretty much an unbeatable combination.
