Now I may be "Out of Step" with previous reviewers, but I can only say what I got. This hotel has every possibility for a "Place in the Lakes" that it could have, but it lacks "Sparkle" from the Hospitality Team Where else could you find a hotel with two railway stations at the end of the Car Park ??...

We stayed at The Pennington over Bank Holiday. What a lovely Hotel - the room was spacious and comfortable with a huge bathroom, The Buffet Breakfast was excellent with a lot of choice and eggs being freshly cooked to our own requirements. The Staff were friendly and very helpful and we will certainly stay there again.

This hotel was a blessing after the place we stayed in at Ambleside the night before. Spotlessly clean bright and airey lovely bar and restaurant. We stayed here for three nights, and wished it was longer. Excellent breakfast, lovely location, and a two minute walk from the Ravenglass steam railway. Plenty of free parking. Would highly recommend.

Stayed for three nights in July and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Rooms are clean and comfortable and the food was excellent. Fantastic location for Muncaster Castle and the South Lakes Zoo. Check out the great three night offer which is on the hotels own website.

We stayed one night and were told we were booked in the Inn. We were very apprehensive when guided down the street to the foot of a steep set of stairs at the back of the nearby pub. However, the room was absolutely lovely. It was immaculate, modern, spotlessly clean, well insulated from the pub below, had a great view...

We enjoyed a lovely evening meal in very pleasant surroundings. The staff were attentive and the food tasty. An exhibition by a local artist/printmaker was on display. Good beers and wines were available. Prices were fair for the food provided.

We booked here a couple of weeks before travel, needing somewhere we could just walk quiet coast and beach and stay in a small hotel - in August! We were able to take advantage of their 3 night bargain break, and it proved very good value. As the forecast was for very wet weather, our only grumble was the lack...

Stayed recently in The Pennington for a business visit to the area. The hotel is well appointed and has nice clean contemporary decor inside - wasn't what I was expecting from looking at it from outside and other hotels could learn from this. Only grumbles were the wifi isn't great in some rooms and the breakfast was a little slow....

This hotel is such a comfortable , clean and friendly place to stay . Unfortunately we were only able to stay for one night, but had a wonderful view over the estuary from room 7. The rooms are well sized with a large and airy bathroom. Breakfast was very busy but very friendly service and we can't wait to return!
