"Great stay at The George Hotel, Penrith"

richardtanycoed, Wales 14/10/2019

Stayed 3 nights on a business trip with a function aranged on my second night by the company I work for. A hotel full of character, great staff, rooms clean and comfortable with everything in full working order. Had to turn my central heatnig radiator off and open the window! Superb wifi connection in my room and throughout the hotel. Our function ran like clockwork and the buffet was first class. Easy 10-minute walk (with suitcase on wheels) from Penrith Station to a well-placed town centre location almost directy opposite Barclays Bank (and cash machine). Highly recommended

Thanks for that great review. Maybe you can return for leisure purposes next time rather than work!! Dave and team George

"Hubby's birthday"

User 13/10/2019

Love this place. Very friendly barman and a fantastic singer on saturday night. Had a right laugh. Will definitely return. Also had a light meal in the afternoon, great value for money. Wish we had stayed overnight at the george but we will next time! Highly recommended, thanks

dave061081, General Manager at The George Hotel, responded to this review
Thanks for that great review!!! The bar man is actually a chef normally who was helping out in the bar!!! He certainly has flair for it!! Thanks for the great review and I will pass on your comments. Until next time safe travels Dave and team George.

"Friendly welcome "

X6708CPchrism, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom 11/10/2019

Good central location and a very traditional feel with creaky staircase and loads of local history on display. Friendly staff, a cosy bar with a real fire, a decent standard of room and a good Cumberland breakfast.

"Beautiful hotel "

allisond693, Northwich, United Kingdom 09/10/2019

Stayed here for 2 nights DB&B, we had a lovely room with a separate living room. The room was clean, spacious and wonderful traditional decor. My partner had organised flowers, champagne and chocolates in the room as a surprise for my birthday, all excellent choices. The restaurant was elegant & food served was lovely & presented well. Can not fault this hotel. Apart from there being no lift, I'm on crutches, there was a stair lift but I felt like I was on show while using it.

Thanks for that super review, I'm pleased you had great time. Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. Dave and team George

"Lovely Hotel &friendly Staff"

LESLEY F, Kirkby Lonsdale, United Kingdom 09/10/2019

Was taken for afternoon tea.. which was absolutely of the best we've had so far (going to all different places and comparing). The hotel was warm and had a lovely relaxed feeling as soon as you went through the door. All the staff we met were friendly but not over board on you. Would definitely recommend and will be going back for lunch/dinner a.s.a.p

dave061081, General Manager at The George Hotel, responded to this review
Thanks for those great comments about your afternoon tea and also very importantly the friendly service which is a huge thing for us. I look forward to your next visit. Dave and team George

"Lovely food in a lovely atmosphere"

User 08/10/2019

Called for a quick lunch, been before and never disappoints. Very quiet and tranquil lounge, with roaring fire (bit too warm today, but cannot fault). Service very quick and really friendly and attentive. Had a simple toastie, but very well presented and tasty. Good value. All in all, a very pleasant experience. Also with the benefit of free parking, aided by a code to be able to lift the car park barrier. Well worth a visit when in or passing Penrith.

dave061081, General Manager at The George Hotel, responded to this review
Thats really nice of you to leave such a review so thanks for that. Until next time. Dave and team George

"Lovely filling lunch"

Pete S, Penrith, United Kingdom 04/10/2019

Popped in for a spur of the moment spot of lunch. We weren't expecting much except high prices as punishment for not popping into one of your high street diners. How wrong could we have been ? Excellent and Curtious service, beautiful layout and very good food at a very good price.. We were treated like royalty and as locals, seriously regret not visiting before. Thank you for a wonderful lunch. I highly recommend the Fish.

"Excellent Stay"

Sile365, Alexandria, Virginia 02/10/2019

Lovely hotel with all amenities and certain meals included. The staff was helpful (directing me to a local market for gifts and carrying my WAY too heavy bag up the stairs, helping me figure out how to open my historic door). The lobby of the hotel appears to be a local gathering place with many folks just stopping in to enjoy the daily tea service. Wonderful decor and vibe. Would ove to spend a rainy day curled up in a cozy corner. Our lunch and breakfast were delicious. The usual English breakfast options were available: eggs, kippers, blood sausages, bacon, crumpets, etc. I do wish the English would learn to make GOOD coffee - alas you can't have everything!!! Within walking distance (three blocks) from the train station.

"A very pleasant stay."

tony667, London, United Kingdom 02/10/2019

We stayed here Sunday night. We arrived late as we had a drive from Belfast. The hotel kindly kept the kitchen open so we could have something to eat. The room we had was lovely and big. There was even a dog bed and bowls in the room as we were travelling with a dog. We were on a birthday break the card and chocolates from the hotel was a lovely touch. Overall a lovely clean hotel with nice rooms and nice staff. Would I stay again? YES.

"Worthwhile & Good Value"

User 01/10/2019

Good quality accommodation which represents excellent value for money. Set in a hotel with bags of character, the recent furniture & linen were well matched & incorporated into the rooms. Very content to stay again although won't be eating again as food was awful, h red nice the reduced score

"Lovely hotel"

GillyBCrewe, Crewe, United Kingdom 28/09/2019

Stayed here before a course and was very impressed. The room was lovely and the bed so comfortable I was sorry I had to get up early to work. All the staff we met were friendly and helpful. We ate our evening meal there and thoroughly enjoyed it. If we're in this part of the world again we'll definitely stay here.


User 25/09/2019

Excellent Service, staff are pleasant and friendly. Catered for our Intimate wedding in August. We had an amazing day, food was great. We had the privilege to stay overnight. Room was fantastic and breakfast was excellent too. We are looking forward to visiting again soon.

"Excellent value"

roseandco, Dorset, United Kingdom 16/09/2019

Central to the town, secure free parking, friendly relaxed feel...what's not to like? The Victorian style to it, the wide staircase and carved wood belied the comfort of our room which was immaculately clean with (bliss!) two easy chairs as well as a desk, a decent shower, comfortable bed and plenty of pillows and cushions, bathrobes, fluffy towels etc etc. Also, extremely quiet so we slept like logs. We ate in the hotel bar that night which was standard pub food but the hotel experience was well above average. And they take dogs!

"Magical and special stay"

Scouse_squirrel, Liverpool, United Kingdom 15/09/2019

We chose The George for our wedding venue and we have never been so happy with a choice. The staff throughout were helpful, kind and just so wonderful. Anything we needed they were there to help. All of our guests loved the hotel, especially those staying over. They made our wedding truly magical and special, we cannot thank then enough. The rooms were wonderful, full of charm and character but modern and up to date, facilities fantastic, the food amazing.

dave061081, Manager at The George Hotel, responded to this review
Hi Scouse_squirrel Many thanks for your lovely review of your recent wedding here at The George We were honoured to look after everyone on your special day and wish you happiness for the future Kind Regards JD and Team George

"In the heart of Penrith"

Thomas B, Jacksonville, FL 14/09/2019

Situated almost smack dab in the heart of Penrith the George rises up like a signpost for posh hotels of the past. Large staircases, woody lounges and lobbies are all squeezed in. The rooms, or at least ours, are relatively small but well equipped and comfy. The prices are certainly reasonable and there is safe free parking in a car park reachable through the back door. If you have difficulty climbing stairs it is not the best bet since there are no lifts, but you cannot beat the location. Right outside the door is great shopping and several really nice restaurants

dave061081, General Manager at The George Hotel, responded to this review
Thanks for that amazing review Thomas. We are planning on building two completely mobility friendly rooms in the not too distant future. So it is a case of watch this space. Safe and happy travels Dave and team George

"Great return to The George"

claredavies2019, Birmingham, United Kingdom 14/09/2019

Another great stay at The George Hotel. Really pleased with the new Restaurant menu. The bedroom was beautiful and spacious with a lovely bathroom. The bar and restaurant staff were great, especially on what was a very busy evening.

Thanks for the great review and for picking out our wonderful team. I wish you well. Dave and team George

"Enjoyable Friday and Saturday"

Bokkie1701, Kirkcaldy, United Kingdom 10/09/2019

Our friends booked us into The George Hotel for a weekend break. There was roadworks going on in the front of the hotel which made parking limited. We managed to get parked at the back area. We received a warm welcome at reception. We were given a room on the 4th floor. We explained my husband has COPD and cannot do to much stairs as there is no lift. Gladly we received a room on the first floor, room 9. The room was clean, updated and so was the bathroom. First hotel we've stayed at that has the same toiletries as the Queen Mary II. We had a few drinks in the Dapper Bar then our evening meal in the Restaurant. Food was freshly prepared and good size portions. Breakfast was good. Self help continental section and hot breakfast to order. All the staff was friendly and go out of their way to help you. The Hotel had alot of money spent on updating and refurbish. Location in the middle of the town. Park your car and just walk around. Highly recommended and we will go back.

dave061081, General Manager at The George Hotel, responded to this review
Thank you Bokkie for that wonderful review, I am pleased that you found our team to be warm and friendly. Thanks for your patience with the road works, I have been informed that it is a gas leak which should be all done and dusted within a day or so. Same toiletries as Queen Mary the II! Never knew that!! I hope if you return that we can impress suffiently to achieve a 5 star review. Until next time, Full steam ahead!! Dave and team George

"Perfectly placed for a nice stay"

Stewal, Rotherham, United Kingdom 08/09/2019

Really enjoyed our night in The George. Bang in the middle of Penrith it's great for a walk around the town. There were Road works right outside which made finding the rear car park a little difficult. But the staff at the hotel talked us thru and once parked up it was great stay. All staff in the hotel were very helpful We were on floor 3 which is a trek with bags and no lift. However the room was good and looked like it had been recently refurbished. The uneven sloping floors just added to the experience which in such an old building are an expected feature. We had dinner included in the rate and the restaurant was very busy. Always a good sign. Not a massive choice on the menu but all we ordered was excellent. A great venue for a stay in the region.

dave061081, General Manager at The George Hotel, responded to this review
Thanks Stewal for the 5 star review, We would usually offer assistance with your luggage and I apologise if this was not the case! (no pun intended). I am pleased you found the meal you had excellent. For future reference if you find the restaurant menu limited then there is absolutely no problem with one or both of you choosing something from the bar menu. Thanks again for the lovely comments about our team. I shall pass them on. Safe travels Dave and team George

"A Happy Stay"

Katharine186300, Winchester, United Kingdom 30/08/2019

I had to stay in Penrith for a couple of nights. and so looked on Trip Advisor.The George came up and I booked in. It is a downhill walk from the station.Cross the road at the station and go to the ruined castle on the opposite side. Walk down the hill and five minutes later you are at the George.Not realising how easy it was I got a taxi - cost £2.50.There is a decent parking area at the front of the hotel. The hotel is old and comfortable with Toby Jugs and plates round the walls.It has a big area in the front and a decent size bar at the back.The room was comfortable and the shower good. Food is generous and good. the staff are very friendly..

dave061081, General Manager at The George Hotel, responded to this review
Thank you Katharine, We do have our own car park also which can be found using the post code CA117TA. safe travels Dave and team George


bug9218, Northern Ireland 21/08/2019

My wife and I called into the George Hotel for an evening meal on Sunday 11/08/20, we stood at reception for nearly 10 minutes two members of staff walked past us one twice while he had a phone to his ear, all he had to say was "can you give me a minute" or similar. At this point we left and went to the Lounge Hotel and Bar instead Not a happy couple

dave061081, General Manager at The George Hotel, responded to this review
Hi Bug, We were unfortunately short on staff on Sunday evening with a team member being off ill and no available cover. Our receptionist was helping with meal service. We do have two portable phone units at reception so the receptionist can take a call whilst doing tasks such as cashing tills etc. Thank you for making it sound like it was a personal call. A little unnecessary. I am pleased you were acknowledged in spite of the staff shortage, and I do sincerely apologise for your wait. Dave and team George

"Fabulous, friendly staff, great value, enclosed car park."

Tracey T, Cardiff, United Kingdom 20/08/2019

We were travelling on the M6 and needed an overnight stop. I looked on my phone and found The George and phoned them. A lovely lady gave me directions to the enclosed car park, ideal for our motorcycle. On arrival we were offered a dinner, B&B deal at an excellent price and given room 16 on the 1st floor. I was nervous as the building was old and the floors did creak but wow! what a room. The decor was modern and well designed, the bed was huge, the bathroom was large with separate bath and waterfall shower. The usual tv, tea tray and toiletries were of good quality. We ate in the restaurant and the 3 course meal was good value, loved the sticky toffee pudding. Full cooked breakfast was also good with an extra pot of tea brought and we took our time enjoying that. The staff were young, friendly, experienced and very efficient both on reception and in the restaurant. All I could have added to the room would have been air-con, but that's expensive, so a flat sheet would have been cooler than the thick duvet. The food was good, although the rump steak cooked rare was a little tough and deep fried onion rings with skin on fat chips a relic from the 1970's? Healthier options, e.g. new potatoes or salad would have been nice. Overall a really lovely overnight stop, I would definitely return.

"Brilliant nights sleep"

smiletravels, Maidenhead, United Kingdom 16/08/2019

What a quaint old fashioned hotel.. staff were lovely and very friendly and the room no.5 was nicely decorated with a modern bathroom.. so very quiet - it was wonderful Had dinner in the bar which wasn't up to much - fish pie which was rather bland and lacking in fish, and hubby had burger which he left not because it was bad but they put a relish on which was too sweet. Breakfast was very nice- vegetarian and full Cumbrian. Overall a nice old fashioned stopover

"Brilliant pit stop"

sammibmcg, Swindon, United Kingdom 14/08/2019

We stopped at The George for one night on our way to the Highlands, having booked pretty last minute. The first thing to mention is that it's in a brilliant location, and there's plenty of private parking. It's easy to find from the motorway and is very central to the town. The room was very comfortable, and the bathroom was huge! We even had robes in the wardrobe which was a nice touch and made us feel pampered after a long car journey. We arrived too late for dinner and ended up having breakfast in a lovely cafe, so can't comment on the food but I'm sure it was lovely!

dave061081, General Manager at The George Hotel, responded to this review
hey Sammithanks for the great review. I hope you can stay again where you can try the food and can give us 5 stars!!! Dave and team George

"A good nights sleep at an affordable price"

User 08/08/2019

Check-in was quick and efficient, the car park at the rear of the hotel, has an electric barrier, with a code to input when leaving. The room was clean, tidy and warm (three requisites for any hotel) The hotel had a nice cosy looking bar, and the hotel was ideal for exploring Penrith, with bars, restaurants, cinema,and takeaways, within walking distance.Overall I had a pleaseant experience and I am staying there again tonight, and I will find out if my pleasant last stay was a one off.

"If you like an antiquated bathing experience this is the place for you."

Northernmonkey68, Gillingham, United Kingdom 07/08/2019

We get that this building is very old BUT the facilities shouldn't be. We had NO hot water the whole 2 night stay ! When I approached reception ( twice ) I was told to just "run the taps for 15 minutes" so I did this in anticipation for a nice hot shower after a 7 hour drive. Well what I was greeted with was a cough/splutter from the shower head and a rumble of pipes followed by what I can only describe as lukewarm rain water so I began to wash only to find the water go from the temperature of a baby's bath water to water more suited to a pregnant penguin ( bloody freezing ) after a while I though ( sod this ) and gave up having a shower and when it came to having a shave I didn't fancy the facial complexion of looking like I'd shaved with a jagged broken bottle. So I boiled the kettle instead. I get that this is a very old hotel BUT surely your company are not still employing small children to stoke the obsolete steam powered boiler you must be using to heat the water system. You also need to employ taller room cleaners as anything above 6 ft off the floor had a liberal coating of dust.

""An overnight stay""

MaryElizabethBeds, Shefford, United Kingdom 06/08/2019

We had an overnight stay to break the journey to Scotland. A lovely old hotel in the high street. The room and the bathroom were extremely clean. We had a fixed price dinner in the evening, only managed 2 courses which was £17.95 a head, the wine and coffees were extra. A lovely meal which we thoroughly enjoyed. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Would stay there again.

"What a beautiful hotel."

Hefhoover2014, Aberystwyth, United Kingdom 05/08/2019

"Homely and dog friendly "

527sallyannep, Great Wyrley, United Kingdom 03/08/2019

A four night stay in this town centre hotel proved to be a lot more homely and relaxed than I imagined with two dogs and a husband who was working for 2 of the days of our stay. We were greeted with dog beds and bowls already in our room. We were in room 26, lots of stairs and overlooking a courtyard but this really didn't detract from the immaculately clean room with very comfortable bed. Very roomy and all facilities available including excellent room service. Staff are really attentive and efficient. Breakfasts superb. Although there isn't a garden or outdoor area the church yard and small park is just around the corner so making the dogs comfortable wasn't an issue at all. We were made to feel very welcome which isn't always the case when you have dogs with you. We were sad to leave!

"overnight stay"

User 26/07/2019

Booked an overnight stay through Groupon after reading reviews. Staff are the best part of this hotel they are very polite and work very but when you see a stairlift you then realise this hotel is for the older person the bedrooms half modern half dated but this is a old building so don't expect a boutique hotel, the a la carte meal which was in with the price which we had high hopes for but when arrived the chicken was very dry and the steak which should have been medium was well done so we left our meal the best part of the meal was the cheese and cracker ,not worth a £129.

"Nice traditional hotel."

garyfm1972, Lincoln, United Kingdom 26/07/2019

Just had a four night stay at the George Hotel in Penrith. It is a lovely old building with many traditional features. The communal areas are nicely furnished and cosy. We spent the first two nights in a lovely suite with a four poster bed. The decor and fixtures were a little dated but it was nice nonetheless. However the room was so noisy at night. Greggs bakery across the road get a delivery between 3/4am every day. This is a huge lorry that doesn't turn it's engine off and you hear clattering and banging on and off for a good hour. We were moved to room number 10 for the last two nights which was much better. Can't praise the staff enough. Very friendly and attentive. Nothing was too much trouble and they moved everything for us when we moved rooms. The only downside for us was the amount of flies in and around the dining areas. Especially around the breakfast buffet. The pastries need covering over. I did this myself with napkins. The waitress said they are waiting for a cover!! It really was a put off. The hotel really needs to invest in air conditioned accommodation too. Other than that we had a great time and would definitely recommend this hotel.

"Another lovely stay"

polibrit, greece 24/07/2019

Have stayed at this hotel several times and have never had a bad experience. Have just returend from a two night break with friends feeling stress free and relaxed. The staff couldn't do enough for us we felt really pampered and special. Rooms were great as was the food and service. Can't wait to go back

"Great Hotel"

Stayed at this hotel while visiting Lakes. Great location. Got a dinner, bed and breakfast deal with a glass of Prosecco each. Was impressed with the evening meal. Good choices from A la Carte menu. Did wait a while for food though. Breakfast was lovely as well. Good size room and bed was comfortable. Great lounge area. Staff friendly as well. Will definitely be returning.

The George Hotel is nicely placed in the Town for shops and eating out. The hotel is also conveniently places for good access to the Lakes. The service levels were high with helpful staff throughout. The only issues being there is no lift and it is a long way to the top floor with or without carrying a suit case! The internet service is not very good.

"Excellent base for exploring Westmoreland and Ullswater"

kewfan, London, United Kingdom 10/07/2019

We had 2 very comfortable nights at the George and having booked well in advance got an excellent bed and breakfast rate. Very good value for money and a lovely friendly atmosphere. Dinner on the first night was good and as we were quite late and hadn't booked, they laid a special table for us in the lounge bay window, the restaurant being full. An excellent combination of a traditional hotel downstairs and a very modern bathroom in our bedroom upstairs.

dave061081, General Manager at The George Hotel, responded to this review
Thanks Kewfan We do always try our best to accomodate even when we're under pressure. Fortunately we have an extraordinarily good team here as previous reviews would support which helps us greatly in this respect. I will pass your comments onto the team and thanks again for the great review. Dave and team George

"Lovely hotel in excellent location"

JoyjoyH, Freckleton, United Kingdom 07/07/2019

We stayed here after a long days walking in the lakes, the hotel is in a fantastic location right in the centre of Penrith. We called enroute and were given the postcode for the secure car park at the back of the hotel. The staff were really friendly and we were checked in in seconds, we stayed in a small double room on the 3rd floor which was bright, spacious and clean. We were lucky to have spotted the travel zoo offer for the restaurant so we had booked a table and had a three course meal which was delicious and a bargain using the voucher. Would happily recommend this hotel we will definitely stay again.

bassetdog, Poulton Le Fylde, United Kingdom 03/07/2019

One night stay when up in Penrith for an evening out. I as given a very nice room , with a nice selection of tea/coffee and biscuits. Room was spotlessly clean as was the spacious bathroom. Quaint small bar for a nice drink. Very friendly staff in the lounge area and a special mention for Emma in housekeeping who was very friendly and willing to offer assistance to any guests she could help.

A characterful country town hotel with plenty of history. The 4 course evening meal was excellent, as was the service. Very comfortable bed in large room at the front, free parking to the rear. Would highly recommend. We stayed on a Sunday using a special deal and it was great value. We would definitely stay here again.

This night was bought for my husband for a father's day present..We booked in at 3pm the staff gave us instructions for the car park. We were able to book a table for the evening meal at the time we requested. The food was excellent along with the service

"Great value"

russell m, Middlesbrough, United Kingdom 25/06/2019

Superb hotel,really well situated,staff were very good,food was excellent,only issues was the view from the room was a fire escape and internal roofing,the hotel was right in the centre with its own car park

dave061081, General Manager at The George Hotel, responded to this review
Hi Russell Thanks for taking the time to write such a positive review. We do struggle for rooms with a good view as stunning vistas are not commonplace in Penrith town centre and many of our rooms look across the rooftops. There are amazing views to be had just a short drive away at Ullswater, really is a great day out! Please do return All the best Dave and team George

"Friendly hotel, good service and lovely food"

Sheila J, Lincoln 24/06/2019

Booked to stop one night to break a journey north because my husband had stopped here last year and been impressed. The room we were given was large with a sitting room as well as the bedroom. It was all well equipped, quiet and clean. The food in the restaurant was lovely and the staff helpful and friendly. Breakfast next morning continued in this vein. Also stopped on the return journey a week later, this time just for a meal which we had in the bar. Again friendly, efficient service with good food and good portion size. The beer isnt bad either. Would happily stop here again. For those with dog they are welcome in the bar and lounge areas.,

Thankyou Sheila J Thats great of you to leave us such a lovely review covering most aspects of what we do here. I look forward to your next visit Dave and team George 01768 862696

"Great visit"

Ad_1a_2m, London, United Kingdom 19/06/2019

Visited here for a 3rd time staying here and again was really impressed. The staff here always make us feel welcome in the hotel. The food as well in both the pub and restaurant. The rooms are always clean and tidy and always a good night stay here. The only reason why I gave 4 stars not 5 is cause I think the prices are a little expensive for what you get and for the fact there is no lift in the entire hotel.

dave061081, General Manager at The George Hotel, responded to this review
Thanks for the great review Ad, Your lovely comments are much appreciated regarding the team and the quality of the food. We have been and still are working hard and with a genuine passion to constantly improve our offering. The George is excellent value for money, we have been running a nights dinner, bed and breakfast for two in an upgraded room for £129!!!!!!!!! This is as great a deal as you will find in Cumbria!!!!! In future give us a call on 01768 862696 and simply ask us what our best deal is and we will gladly share this with you. I look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel for a great stay and a great deal!! Dave and team George

"JD is an absolute star!!"

Griffithslaura, Durham, United Kingdom 16/06/2019

We booked a table for 22 people (12 adults 8 children) for lunch this weekend, which was for our surprise wedding that we'd told our guests about only the night before. On booking the table JD was fantastic, made the process so easy. We got married at the register office round the corner and misjudged how long it would take so arrived at the George an hour early, this was no issue to JD and he welcomed us all. The children had a table of their own and he quickly took their orders and brought them colouring sheets so they were happy and settled while the adults could toast the day and order our food. Nothing was a problem to JD, he was so lovely and patient with the children, bringing them desert as when each one was finished and if any of us adults wanted changes from the set menu this too was no problem at all. JD is definitely a massive asset to the George, he made our wedding so much more relaxed and special so thank you very much!

dave061081, General Manager at The George Hotel, responded to this review
Thanks Laura Griffiths, That's a great shout out! JD or "John of the George" is somewhat of a treasure here. He certainly is special! It was nice to meet you all and my wrists have now recovered from sharpening all those coloured pencils!!! Until next time Dave and team George

"The George Hotel"

sffirmani, Riccall, United Kingdom 15/06/2019

We stayed here for 2 nights in May. Never again shall we revisit. The staff were very rude and they really do not know how to apologise. Before we arrived we rang the hotel asking for directions to the car park, a man at reception just gave us a postcode and did not think to tell us that the car park was hidden behind a gate in quite an obscure place. Hence why we parked outside the hotel. On checking in they told us that we couldn't park outside and they eventually explained where the car park was. I explained to reception that it was not very helpful to just provide us with a postcode and no other information, the man at reception replied with nothing and showed no acknowledgement. The cost was £300 for 2 nights including breakfast. The room was very dated,1980s decor and very run down. It was in need of much TLC. The carpet was stained and the floors were very creaky also. The room had a strange damp odour too. The morning when we checked out we took to the dining area and ordered our breakfast, we were waiting over half an hour before it was served and the tea had gone cold obviously. In the meantime we asked what was happening the waitress said “we are very busy” and no apology at all! I would recommend the staff to inform guests to expect delays with breakfasts etc if this is going to be the case. The breakfast itself was the only positive thing about this hotel, cooked well and very tasty. Expensive hotel relative to the poor service we received. The state of the hotel room made us feel quite deflated, I felt far from being in holiday mode. Overall very disappointed.

dave061081, General Manager at The George Hotel, responded to this review
Dear sffirmani, I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay. We always get great reviews especially concerning the team here so I was a little surprised to read your comments. We do have a remarkably friendly bunch here. Please see the last x number of posts. We do give out the postcode for the car park which is a different post code than that of the hotel. This is simply because the hotel is on a one way system and having its own post code makes life remarkably easy for those people who have a sat nav. Unsure what the problem here was as you state you were provided with a post code AND an explanation of where the car park was so both options covered. Not sure what else we could do to make this easier to find. ??? We have a rolling refurbishment program at the hotel and are anticipating a further 6 rooms to be upgraded in the not too distant future. The floors are creaky in places, the building is 400 years old. I do wish you all the best with your future travels Dave and team George

"Traditional, old style hotel"

ColinCJC, Storrington, United Kingdom 14/06/2019

Old style hotel in central Penrith.Good for a stopover. Good lounge area near reception although bar area itself fairly narrow. Good full cooked breakfast, but buffet options limited. Fairly basic bedroom and shower.

"Disappointing Service"

thehigsta, Peterborough, United Kingdom 11/06/2019

Whilst the food we were served was very nice, the service did leave a lot to be desired. We chose a window table which we were aware needed clearing - this was done quickly but then the waiter asked if he could take our order - no pad, no pen. We placed the order for the meal and drinks. The drinks arrived first but the server disappeared before we could say they were incorrect. We had to go and find someone to correct the error. The bill was also presented to us before the meal even arrived.

dave061081, General Manager at The George Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Thehigsta, I have investigated......... I'm sorry you felt it necessary to write such a negative review because there was a slice of lemon in your drink. Please be aware that such reviews can have a negative impact on small, hard working business's and the jobs of the people working there. It is our standard to keep a rolling tab on every table. The dirty table you chose was cleared quickly, and you enjoyed your meals of that I'm glad. I wish you all the best Dave and team George

"Enjoyable stay in the GeogeHotel, Penrith"

Evelyn B, Belfast, United Kingdom 10/06/2019

The accommodation is excellent - very comfortable beds which guarantee a good night's sleep. All amenities are included and the rooms are very clean. The whole building is full of character and the food is of the highest standard. Also, situated in central location - convenient for shops!

dave061081, General Manager at The George Hotel, responded to this review
Thanks Evelyn B for that great review. We do work hard to give our guests an exceptional experience so thanks for the mention. Hope to see you again Dave and team George 01768 862696


Walker1951, Derbyshire, United Kingdom 05/06/2019

The George is an upmarket Hotel in the centre of Penrith. I called in for a drink in the bar which is encouraged. The bar staff were friendly and helpful and there was an adequate range of drinks. I didn't eat so can't comment on the food. The clientele in the bar seemed to be residents who were on the elderley side and were there to enjoy a quiet drink and have a chat. With the type of customers in the bar I was very surprised when the background music changed to Iron Maiden's "Take Your Daughter to the Slaughter". This could have been for the bar tenders personal pleasure but his face didn't crack and he must have had no control over the music or he is a very good poker player. Music aside I would definitely recommend a visit to the George.

dave061081, General Manager at The George Hotel, responded to this review
Thanks for the review, If I can explain how the George is laid out it may shed some light on why there is varying music..... Lounges-acoustic, chilled music for well lounging and relaxing. Bar- Rock music for people wanting a little bit more upbeat atmosphere. This widens our niche and hopefully brings more guests into the George. Thanks for your positive comments including the team here. I shall pass them on. Hope to see you again Dave and Team George 01768 862696

"If authentic antiquity is your goal..."

Margaret E, Los Altos Hills, California 05/06/2019

This picturesque hotel is right in the middle of Penrith, a good jumping off place for the Lake District. The bed and bath rooms were adequately supplied, clean and comfortable. We also had a third, sitting room. However, a Saturday night stay in Penrith put us right on the main drag, and the cars/motorcycles/groups went noisily by all night long! Ask for a room on the back of the hotel and you may be happier.

dave061081, General Manager at The George Hotel, responded to this review
Thanks for your review Margaret E Thanks for the good comments about the hotel. Unfortunately on a bank holiday weekend in every town centre in the country there will be noise from revellers who are just a couple of units the happy side of hitting the gutter. Most rooms at the front of the hotel have been fitted with secondary glazing to reduce any noise in the rooms. Thanks for your otherwise positive review and I hope you can return and hopefully score us at 5 stars!!!! Dave and Team George 01768 862696

"Could have been wonderful !"

User 01/06/2019

This hotel is situated in the heart of Penrith . Its classic architecture and Victorian ambience is extremely welcoming and grand . Staff helpful and friendly and the dinner and breakfast excellent . Whilst the general decor and furnishings are a little tired with a slightly fusty odour the venue was good overall . However !! Retiring to bed in a room at the front of the hotel all was well till what sounded like world war three breaking out at the late night takeaway directly opposite our room . Loud, abusive and generally drunken noise woke us up shortly after midnight and carried on nearly all night . Closing the window did not prevent the noise and made the room intolerably hot . Worst night sleep ever . Such a shame that it ruined this short break which could have been so much better .

"Wedding Aniversay"

Claire B, Washington, United Kingdom 31/05/2019

Clean comfortable room. Hotel staff all polite, friendly and helpful.Good amenities. In the town centre with an absolutely amazing bakery close by selling everything from sausage rolls, pasties, cheese, chutney and cakes

"Mini break"

Dawn W, Banbury, United Kingdom 30/05/2019

Mini break for celebrating husbands special birthday year doing lots of exciting things around the UK and beyond. We had actually been here about 10yrs ago. The good was wonderful and staff all lovely

"Comfortable and luxurious stay - great breakfast!"

User 30/05/2019

We made an emergency booking in this hotel on the day of our arrival in Penrith. The BnB we were booked in (Ashberry Guest House) refused to check us in after our train was delayed so the welcome by reception staff was lovely! The room was large, clean and had a lovely modern bathroom and the breakfast was great!


Discover01728030096, Glasgow, United Kingdom 28/05/2019

I had a good stay at the George. It has the feeling of a welcoming hotel with attentive and friendly staff! I had a restful night's sleep and a hearty breakfast the following morning. I will be back to enjoy the hospitality of the The George!

"Reliable as ever"

172chrisj, Penrith, United Kingdom 28/05/2019

Went for a meal with my son and his fiance and her parents, the food was delicious and well presented , the service was good but when they brought the wine they just plonked the bottles on the table , didn't open them or offer a taste , very disappointing and not what I expect at a good restaurant .

"Night out"

User 22/05/2019

"Ideal place to stay in Penrith"

purdybunny, Glos 21/05/2019

Ideal place to stay on our trip up to Scotland. Perfect location and hotel. Food and accommodation excellent and made a lovely start to our holiday. I can highly recommend anyone wishing to stay in Penrith

"Fabulous short break"

User 21/05/2019

Just returned from a wonderful short break at this lovely old hotel. All the staff we're fantastic and really made our stay memorable. Food and service first class. Rooms very comfortable and had everything you need. Comfortable bed. No elevator but you can access the floors with a stair lift. Parking at the rear of the hotel. Yes some areas need updating but for me everything is still 5 Stars ⭐️ Looking forward to our next visit and I can honestly say this was one of the best places we have stayed. Thank you for a great weekend Ann Blair xx

"Short break"

kingststudios5a, Lancaster, United Kingdom 12/05/2019

Really enjoyable short break; helpful staff, comfortable room and food in the restaurant and a breakfast that gave a great start to the day. There were plenty of spaces to simply sit, relax and unwind.

"Short Groupon break"

cefncoedjess, Almeria, Spain 02/05/2019

lovely old building with many original features, our room was huge with superking bed, large bathroom and lounge area. However we were situated above the reception toilet so we heard the hand dryer blowing away. We had the DBB package which was great value. Would definitely recommend.

Hi cefncoedjess, So glad that you had a good time. We do have some great deals available at the moment. I look forward to welcoming you back. Dave and team George

"Attractive and characterful old hotel"

Paul F, Chesterfield, United Kingdom 30/03/2019

The George is an iconic Penrith institution and I always come back to stay here if in the area. The charm and relaxed atmosphere is wonderful. The decor is just how you would wish, cosy snugs, well maintained, the bedrooms I have stayed in all good and comfy. Stairs are a bit of a mountain and slope in odd places as do the floors, walls and everything! Which adds to its charm and appeal. Staff always on hand and always helpful.

dave061081, General Manager at The George Hotel, responded to this review
Hi Paul, Thanks for those great words of praise. We are certainly working hard to take the George to the next level and the team and I appreciate the recognition. Hope to see you soon Dave and team George

"Traditional but modern and the staff are great."

AdiPLancashire, Lancashire 27/03/2019

Stayed here for two nights following a few days at Centre Parcs. My wife had injured her ankle and the staff couldn't be more helpful. Food was excellent and the restaurant is lovely. Overall a really relaxing stay. Access for wheelchairs and less mobile people is from the car park at the rear.

dave061081, General Manager at The George Hotel, responded to this review
Thanks Adip, I chuffed that you enjoyed your stay. I hope your wife's ankle has fully recovered. Dave and team George
