Lovely place. Room 1O on the top floor various spacious and even has its own mini kitchen. Friendly helpful staff. Managed to get a very good room rate so good value for money. Only criticism would be the water in the shower was not very hot and there was no shower cap. Would recommend highly though as these are items...

So we normally end up driving to the lakeside hotels. However, now that we know that the Roundthorn can provide a very nice afternoon tea...

An outstanding Family Run Hotel in the heart of Penrith. The hotel is simply beautifully presented throughout, with tastefully decorated public areas and individually appointed bedrooms that boast every possible added extra from bottled water, toiletries, and tissues to tea and coffee and biscuits. The breakfast tops what was a very enjoyable stay with a wide selection of fresh fruit,...

Great venue for celebrating things like weddings and anniversaries, and the food was fantastic, the meat just fell apart. Staff all friendly and very spacious. Not somewhere where you would go for a casual meal but very nice nonetheless.

We were a party of twelve for Christmas lunch and have to say that this is one of the best establishments I have visited for a celebration in a long time. The attention to detail was really good. Decorated table. Crackers, hats and a beautifully decorated room just for our party. We had decided our menu choices beforehand but before...
