    Well looked after, beautiful rooms with a fantastic view and very nice bathroom. Owner was helpful and explained everything we needed to know thoroughly, I'd highly recommend staying at this hotel if you visit Penguin.

    Whilst New Years in Penguin was quiet, the service was impeccable, the room lovely, the breakfast delicious, and the dinner recommendation (late NYE booking - thank you!) was amazing. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Loved staying in a bank.
