We stayed at The Brookland's Guesthouse on the last night of our honeymoon on our way back down from Scotland to Cheltenham. We were greeted very warmly by Leon, the owner who gave us a parking permit, took our bags up to our room and offered his advice for local eateries.
We were tired so we spent the afternoon in the room relaxing, using the internet (wifi is complimentary and fairly reliable) and watching a bit of TV on the very impressive plasma screen. We stayed in the deluxe room which had a huge original Victorian bedstead, a nice bathroom with complimentary White Company toiletries and lots of tea, coffee, fruit and water.
We went out that evening into Penrith which unfortunately we were less impressed with. Rowdy teenagers seemed to roam the streets which were a little intimidating. We did however find a good indian restaurant which was recommended in the info pack at the guesthouse. The food was excellent and the staff were very welcoming, helpful and friendly.
Breakfast the following morning was very impressive. The menu was varied with lots of choice, the portions we large and the food was really beautifully cooked food. The fruit to start with was really fresh and very tasty.
All in all a very enjoyable stay.
