Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Clean, comfortable and quiet B&B in a lovely period property. The room was beautifully appointed, with plenty of fluffy towels and a bathrobe, the breakfast room has a wonderful view over a well kept garden to the hills in the distance and the owners were very welcoming and helpful. Would definitely recommend for a peaceful nights rest.

Lovely house run by Dino and his wife. Stunning gardens, great bedrooms and a breakfast to die for, especially the combination of porridge or fruit compote followed by one of the best English breakfasts I’ve ever had. Highly recommended and couldn’t fault a thing!

We stayed here in the king room with shower. Beautiful room - couldn't fault. Comfiest bed I have been in. Plenty room in bathroom. View from the window across Penrith and beyond. Good choice at breakfast and plenty to set you up for the day. Decide evening before what you want. Best porridge I have ever tasted - local porridge oats along with the excellent cooking of them made all the difference, full cooked breakfast is delicious and again local produce used. Hosts were so friendly and welcoming. All in all a delightful place to stay - so glad we found this gem. Would not hesitate to come back again and again.

My husband and I recently stayed at Bank House in the room with an ensuite bath - a beautiful room. Our hosts were welcoming and helpful. Breakfast was outstanding with locally sourced produce. We are non-drivers and found Penrith a good base from which to explore the area. There are regular trains and bus services seemed good, including a service to Pooley Bridge, from where we were able to travel by steamer around Ullswater Lake. Penrith has some great independent shops and we enjoyed a drink in the Fell Bar (which has received CAMRA awards). We can highly recommend Bank House.

Bed and breakfast done properly! I couldn't praise Bank House b&b enough. A truly beautiful house, with gorgeous garden, set on a quiet road in Penrith, just a few minutes walk from the centre. We stayed in the king sized room which boasts a magnificent hand painted floral mural behind the king sized four poster bed. We were very comfortable and I personally loved that there was a hot water bottle (just in case). Fantastic friendly, helpful hosts who are a joy to speak with. And the breakfast!! Everything locally sourced and/or produced, it was absolutely delicious and we didn't need to eat for the rest of the day haha. The Bank House b&b is a real gem and a must stay if you're in Penrith.

My wife and I stopped in Penrith on our way to Scotland! We had the most wonderful nights stay at Bank House. The room was excellent and had everything we needed. Breakfast was amazing with so much attention to détaillé. Finally our hosts Sarah & Deano we’re the most friendly and welcoming people you’d ever want to meet. We wouldn’t hesitate to stay with them again should we holiday in the Lake District or on another trip further north.

Situated in a quiet residential street a short walk into Penrith town centre with free on street parking, this is a traditional and authentic Victorian villa full of originality. Breakfasts are made to order with homemade breads, granola and top quality ingredients integral to what is on offer on the menu. Quality bathroom toiletries are also provided by Pure Lakes..a local Cumbria company with ‘clean’ credentials. Hospitality is not in short supply with a genuine interest in the welfare of guests. The only thing which Mr Google does not tell you is that the villa is situated almost at the top of quite a steep hill, which makes returning a bit of an up hill challenge , unless by taxi which at £4 represents good value for money!
