I stopped at this great guest house whilst visiting Penrith for the winter droving festival. It's in a prime location , very short stroll into town. The rooms are extremely comfortable and very well looked after and the breakfasts are fabulous.

We stayed for 2 nights and really enjoyed it. We were greeted at the door and shown to our room. It was a nice room with a nice ensuite bathroom. Plenty of tea/coffee/etc. in the room and a kettle! Breakfast was tasty and a good selection of food was on offer. Would definitely recommend.

Our party of four had 3 nights here and found it ideal. There were no problems with the parking. There seemed to be a space on the road outside every time we wanted one. The breakfast was great and the rooms were spacious for our needs. We had a good sleep, our room was at the back of the building.... More

We enjoyed an excellent stay, being met at the door and shown to a room with everything we could need and some little touches to make our stay even better. The bathroom, though being across the hall, fulfilled all our needs and was very pleasant. The best bit was our breakfast which had many options to suit different palates, superbly... More
