Amazing food in a cozy and welcoming pub hotel

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 5 weeks ago
The staff were excellent, and the local regulars are so welcoming and chatty. I stayed a night with my mum on the way to Edinburgh and we have both said we would definitley stay again. Its so cozy, the rooms are comfortable and so toasty!
The drinks were nice and cold, and THE FOOD?! DELICIOUS! We had both said out of our entire trip this was by far some of the best food we had!
We will definitely plan to return soon

Lovely gem of a hotel in a great location. Forget staying in Penrith this ideal location. 5 mins off the M6. Penrith centre 8 mins away.
Lovely hotel. Room very comfortable. Nice bar/restaurant downstairs. Plenty of parking spaces. Excellent breakfast. Stayed twice with work definitely stay again. Friendly staff.
Only one minor issues is the WiFi.

Room tip: Breakfast a must.

Excellent overnight on our way back home to the Highlands. Splendid dinner (rare to see roast duck on the menu now), good wine, perfect Timothy Taylor’s beer, comfortable room, and very tasty breakfast. Very friendly welcome and atmosphere.

We stayed over Ning and had dinner with friends. Decent pub food, not fantastic but decent and we’d go again. Staff made the place even better from the excellent welcome from James and the goodbye from Ben.
Room 2 was excellent, huge bed and nice furnishings. Shower isn’t too powerful and the TV Ariel was broken but not a game changer. Beware of the entrance to the car park and any large cars are best not going through the archway

This is the 3rd trip to the Brantwood & would highly recommend it! Everything from its quirky rooms, the most comfortable beds/pillows to the food is exceptional. The staff are friendly, helpful & polite & nothing is too much trouble!! We will definitely be back again!! Thank you for another wonderful stay.
