Certificate of Excellence
The George Hotel is something of a local treasure, situated in the pretty market town of Penrith, perfectly located to explore the Eden valley with Ullswater and the Lake District just a few miles away. The lounge is popular with locals for morning coffee and cake, lunches and afternoon teas. The 2 AA Rosette Devonshire Restaurant's silver and ruby red decor, truly sets the scene for a superb dining experience, with menu’s that focus on simple, fresh, local produce. For more casual drinking and dining, relax in the vibrant Dappers Bar within the hotel.

Had afternoon tea with friends to celebrate my special birthday and I was very disappointed. Nothing was home made, all shop bought, even the cream for the scone was a long life packet.
I have had afternoon tea in the past at the George which was lovely but after this unfortun

We stayed here for one night as we were attending one of their party nights. We booked a double room.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The George is well appointed, very convenient for the centre of town, with a spacious and comfortable bedroom, the service was good and the food excellent. The hotel has a traditional ambience typical of the Victorian era

My two sisters & I stayed at your lovely hotel in 2004 as we were attending our cousin’s wedding. We loved the family room but it did not have a shower. Have the rooms been upgraded with actual showers now as we are looking at visiting Penrith again in June of 2019. We are American’s who love our showers! I also must say a belated thank you to your staff as one of my sisters is diabetic & during the night she slipped into an insulin reaction. Quick thinking by our neighbors who happened to be a nurse summoned the front desk & medical staff arrived within minutes & saved her life. She will be with me along with her daughter & granddaughter in June of 2019.
Is there air conditioning in the guest rooms?
No; because it is not necessary. On the possible 3 or 4 days a years when a/c could be deemed to be beneficial, simply open the windows.

Hi could you tell me have you got shops bars and restaurants close by thanks
Hi Janet it's in the centre of Penrith so has shops, a food market, restaurants and bars all within walking distance. To be honest I found the windows in The George whilst sat having afternoon tea great amusement as it enabled me to figure out where to go. Hope this helps.
