Great hotel with a relaxed atmosphere.
Booked a 3 night stay from 15/02/17 (only a week prior) at Penrith Hotel & Spa and once we were inside the entrance... we knew it was a great choice. Ample parking, helpful reception, open fires, bar, lounge area, great choice of breakfast (Full English was exceptional.....tasty, fresh & hot) ,drinks etc.
Indoor pool, whirlpool & steam room were great too as were showers and changing room facilities.
Although it's not central to the Lakes themselves... it is a fantastic 'base camp for trips into the Yorkshire Dales, Peak District , Carlisle (even Scotland) and of course the beautiful Lakes themselves. All just a short drive away through some eye-catching scenery.
With all rooms on 3 floors (G, 1st & 2nd) it's no hardship to use the stairs instead of the lift, which is just as well as it was Out of Order Friday afternoon (and still so upon our departure around 10:00. A minor setback for some but there's always staff on hand to aid anyone with luggage etc.
Definitely one to visit again.
