“Quaint Historical Village”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

We stayed here to visit Muncaster Castle. The hotel is owned by the family who own Muncaster, and we received 50% on the entrance fee. Food was excellent, staff very friendly, breakfast very fresh and very hot. Local train service (second adult travels half price) to Carlisle and Lancaster round the corner from the hotel. There is also a "toy" train service for enthusiasts up int the hills.
WE enjoyed the hotel and the atmosphere of the village and would return. (An old hand cranked petrol pump in a garden displays1/5d per gallon!!!)

Room Tip: ASk for room 8. It has one of the best sea views.

I had a large, comfortable rooms with a great shower. The food was cooked to orderfrom local ingredients and looked and tasted marvellous.

The only let-down was the internet connectivity in my room, which was practically non-existent. In the Maui lounge and bar it was booming, but for a business trip it wasn't really satisfactory.

That said, I would definitely stay again if in the area.

We visited the hotel for lunch after a trip to the Ravenglass railway. Staff were friendly and very helpful. The food was excellent, great quality and full of delicious favours. The bar where we ate was comfy and a pleasant place to relax. We will definitely be back.

Stopped here for just one night, while we were attending a play at the nearby Muncaster Castle. As the play finished a little later than expected we were too late for dinner but the friendly staff fixed us up with a superb soup and excellent sandwiches which more than made up for it.

The room was large, spotless and very well appointed. Breakfast was excellent and overall we both rated this hotel as a wonderful experience.

We will be back.

Room Tip: Room 22 is very quiet, but you MUST close the curtains as it is overlooked by the car park.

The Pennington was an excellent experience from the friendly welcome to the smooth check out. The room was large, spotless and well appointed with everything you would expect from a hotel like this. The breakfast was top notch with good quality local produce well cooked and presented. All in all a lovely treat!

Room Tip: Room 9 (above the front door) has a view of the beach from the bedroom and bathroom.

We stayed at the Pennington for three nights in August, we really enjoyed it, the bedroom was spacious and comfortable, the staff were very helpful and pleasant. We found the food to be first class, this was our fifth stay here, the village is so peaceful and picturesque, and we Like to tour around Eskdale and visit Muncaster. I can,t think of a better place to spend a relaxing weekend, I hope we shall soon be back

Room Tip: All the rooms we have had have been comfortable and spacious, try for a room with an estuary view

Stayed here for one night with our small dog, the staff were all very friendly and the room we stayed (room 3) was perfect as we could take the dog out without having to go through the hotel.
We ate in the restaurant which was first class, we don't usually return to anywhere we have stayed before but may make an exception for this hotel.

Room Tip: Some rooms on the front have a better view of the estuary
