“Taste Eden in Central Penrith”
Reviewed 20 May 2013

Warm cosy room, good shower , Great Breakfast I had Full english with tasty local bacon, black pud etc but there are many specialities you can pre-order night before involving fish, blueberries etc!! . Easy 2 use wifi , flat screen TV and comprehensive Info on local area. Hosts helpful and approachable.

Location handy for gym bunnies/swimmers coz just 1 min walk to right of front door is Penrith leisure centre. Foodies can walk 15 mins up castle st. to rear of sainsbury's (next to leisure centre) and get to Cranston's on top rd if turn left or station, magnificant castleitself and Aldi's to right.

Room Tip: Rooms at back presumably avoid sleep disruptive traffic noise on A6 road one gets in at front rooms...

I have stayed at many B&Bs but can honestly say this is the best I have been to.
We were doing the Coast to Coast.
Sue and Ian gave us a very warm welcome.
Bikes securely locked away.
The house was lovely, immaculately clean and tastefully decorated.
Very tasty full English Breakfast!
They were very accommodating with my support team dropping bags off and picking them up after we left.
They also work closely with adjacent B&Bs if your party comes to more than their total capacity.

Stopped here on the 8th May 2013, working in the area!!
All I can say is a BIG thank-you to Sue who made me very welcome!!
The room was well appointed and tidy and clean(had a great night's sleep).

In the morning I had a super full english breakfast(plenty of it), then on to work!!

The guest house is just outside the town centre, I walked the main street in about 15 mins, there are plenty of different restaurants for you to look at and have a meal!!

We have put Sue's place down on a works list of good guest houses for us to use when we are in the area!!

I would highly recommend the Caledonia guest house!!!!!!!

Stayed here for 1 night over the first May Bank holiday 2013 during a C2C run. Was greeted with a warm welcome from Ian and Sue, who were very helpful. Room was good with a great breakfast (maybe too much so!) for a difficult start to to the following days ride. Right next to town centre, shops and local bars and restaurants. Would recommend to anyone.

A very warm welcome awaited us on our arrival. Secure lock up for our bikes. Room very clean and warm. Ideally placed for town and for access to the C2C route. Breakfast good, nothing was too much trouble. Would recommend.

We stayed in the Caledonia whilst undertaking the C2C from Whitehaven to Sunderland. On arrival the greeting from the owner was great. A secure lock up for all our bikes. A place to clean the bikes. Parking for our support van and they even filled up our flasks the morning after! They couldn't have been more helpful. The rooms were very nice. Comfortable beds and hot en suite showers. The place is quite central to Penrith, so not too far from a couple of restaurants and watering holes. The breakfast was very good also, everything you need to get you charged up for the climb out of Penrith as you head on up to Hartside. We will be staying here next year on our annual trip. Other B&B's could learn a lot from the way this Guest House was managed. First class.

Room Tip: They are all great.

We have just stayed in Caledonia whilst doing the C2C bike ride, I wish all the places were as good as this were we stayed, when we arrived we was warmly greeted by the owner who even gave us a hose to clean all our bikes down and they had a secure place to store all 8 bikes.We were shown our rooms and we was very pleased they were also comfy, We all had a great nights sleep and when we got up for breakfast we was in for a treat, The breakfast was 1st class with a great choice just what we needed on the 2nd day of the C2C. I have to say I will be coming back here to stay and if you're thinking about staying in Penrith this place is a must !!! very friendly, clean,comfy and great food !!! Thank you Caledonia loved it xxx
