Hosts made us feel welcome. We had a spacious bedroom and the beer was spot on. We also loved the unspoilt village.

This was supposed to be our 2 year reunion with the boat people. We always book the George in Penrith itself. Which we thought we had done. The photos of the George hotel i booked was the stone one where we have stayed several times before. We couldnt believe on our arrival that we were not on the guest list. Waiting to join everyone to find out that we ended up in another hotel 20 miles away from our group. How can these two hotels be classes in Penrith when one is so far away. I believe on one hand i should of doubled checked. But didnt think it was necessary as the photo shown was of the George in penrith. Not the George from a place called Orton. This is deceiving and spoilt our xmas reunion having to travel back and forth. This hotel is not close to the George hotel for being a 4* at all. It is a place where we would stay as a fell walker and a rate of 2* . Although they are portraying it as 4* even had a photo of it. The rooms were adiquite but not what we expected at all. One possitive thing is the landlords were pleasant enough &breakfast was ok. But not worth £90. I would of expected to pay around £45. Sorry but i think he is getting his custom from the reports from the George Penrith. The distance between these two hotels is from Cramlington to Sunderland.How can they be classed as one town its not right.
