'Stayed here for our Ruby Wedding Anniversary with our Daughter, her husband, and our Grandchildren - Very clean and pleasant in a beautiful location - The evening meals on offer however were not to our tastes, and so we ate elsewhere - 'Would recommend this hotel for a weekend away

We booked into the Pennington and arranged for friends to join us for dinner. There was no one in reception when we arrived. We had to ask in the bar about our booking but they knew nothing which was very embarrassing for us and our guests. Fortunately ( and I now understand why) the restaurant was very quiet. The service...

Ravenglass is a beautiful village in an estuary, the Pennington is really central in the area and well signposted. If you are travelling to visit the Ravenglass and Eskdale railway it couldn't be better located. The service was always good and the restaurant well served with local fish specials as well as standard fare. Breakfast was excellent, the rooms were...

We booked into the Pennington Hotel on Friday late afternoon and to be honest from the moment we arrived everything (the room, the staff, the food, the cleanliness etc., etc.,) were absolutely excellent. Nothing was too much trouble. The room was large, light and clean, lovely big fluffy bathtowels, an excellent selection of toiletries, a good range of complimentary goodies...

Everyone we interacted with was inviting, helpful and friendly. Our family room was clean, bright and spacious. Although our family room didn't have a view of the estuary, my mother's room did and the view was incredible. The view from the front of the hotel is amazing and we were lucky to enjoy two nights with beautiful sunsets. We dined...

The hotel is locally run on very professional lines. The rooms are of a good standard and the local staff very good. The food is good although the range of meats is often limited, and the restaurant service is sometimes not quite on the mark. The village setting of Ravenglass is just amazing even in a winter storm.

We stayed at the Pennington for 2 nights in May, a last minute booking, with no knowledge of the hotel but a liking for Ravenglass, a tiny seaside village with an 'end of the earth' feel to it. We had a good room at the hotel (room 8) with a lovely view of the estuary - boats, blue sky, and...

I had high hopes of the Pennington. Unfortunately these were far from fulfilled. I didn't once see a member of staff at the reception desk, and looking into the back office, there were no staff to be seen, just a random selection of dumped bric-a-brac. The bedroom was no more than adequate, and hadn't been properly cleaned as there were...

Dear Guest, I am very sorry to hear that you find it appropriate to rate our hotel as "terrible" I am very sorry that you found the hotel underwhelming. I do not think the standards that we usually aspire to and achieve are reflective in you awarding the hotels second ever "terrible" rating. We note your comments regarding the cleanliness...

We have spent six nights at The Penningtoin. On Monday night a lightening strike took out the power to Ravenglass.

She provided a quality service and...
