5 of us stayed here for a wedding, and this accommodation surpassed all of our expectations. Staff were extremely welcoming and friendly (even allowing us to check in early). The beds were really comfy, and bathroom facilities were excellent. The room was really clean, and had access to kitchen amenities. Would not hesitate to stay here again if I was in Penrith.
