Great hotel with a relaxed atmosphere.

Posted 20-Feb-2017
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.

Lovely hotel, good food, great pool only issue was room a bit small and had adjoining door to next room, which whilst locked did let noise through.

North lakes

A lot nicer on the inside than the out. Nice room, but had one rude staff member who knock on our door and had a go at us for our television been loud. But it was on volume five. Which we thought was out of order.

Room was not up to expectation

Posted 30-Jan-2017
Disappointed as we have previously visited and stayed at this hotel just in a twin room before which was really nice so we decided to book again but in a superior room however we was disappointed when we got in to the room to find the room wasn't like it was on the pictures as the television wasn't on the wall like it was shown and when it finally came to the evening in which we needed the dressing table, only one of the lamps were working which then caused poor lighting and caused us to struggle to get ready for our evening meal, my partner actually sat down at the dressing table to only then not realise that it was too small and not ergonomically correct to a user and she actually scraped the skin off of her leg, the coffee machine provided was also an exciting prospect to the room however when we came across to make a coffee it turned out to be faulty and very difficult to make a simple drink, as a superior room we expected more high quality which we feel we overpaid for a lower quality room. Not happy and very disappointed

Nice place to stop heading north or south

Posted 29-Jan-2017
We bolted an extra night onto a weeks break elsewhere. It's a delightful hotel in a good location. A 20 minute walk into Penrith gives you some good local shopping. The hotel rooms are nice and comfortable but perhaps just need a little tlc, a stain here and there and wallpaper peeling on vulnerable edges. Very nice bar and lounge with log fires burning throughout the time we were there The pool and spa is very nice and the restaurant has a good menu for dinner and breakfast was tasty as well. All in all a nice place to stay and don't be put off by the blue exterior!

Shame about the food

Medium steak order but rare one delivered. Sent back but another rare one brought out. Ended up eating separately from cold buffet. Spoiled birthday meal.
