After staying for a couple of nights we really enjoyed it, room spacious, bed comfortable, nice breakfast and a lovely host, great location also as a short walk into town. Thanks dawn for a lovely stay.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2011

We stayed it this guest house for one night as a family of five adults and found the rooms to be spacious and immaculate.We were put in adjacent rooms, the only people on that floor which was ideal Breakfast deserved a 10/10 and the proprietor was friendly and helpful. She recommended a nearby Italian resteraunt for dinner where we found the food to be superb even if the decor was a bit dodgy. We would definately stay again and recommend to anyone.

We stayed here for one night en-route to Scotland and were really pleased with our family room. There were proper beds for everyone, and plenty of room for all of us to relax. Spotlessly clean and the owners were friendly without being in your face. We set off the next day after a lovely breakfast (catering for a fussy child was not a problem) feeling very refreshed. Would definitely stay here again!

We stayed for 2 nights while at a family wedding in Penrith - didn't fancy the town centre hotels because of noise, but Crosby was really peaceful, on a pleasant residential street a few minutes walk from the town centre. Dawn has fitted out the house with such taste and care we felt relaxed the minute we walked in, when we were made so welcome. We slept really well and woke refreshed. The breakfast room and fare were perfect - one of the nicest breakfasts I've had away from home. Many thanks.

Room Tip: Only 2 rooms, I think, a double and a family room.

Stayed here for one night when cycling the C2C route across England. This is an excellent b & b, friendly and welcoming. Nice comfortable room, with a friendly and pretty landlady. Excellent breakfast. Cyclist friendly.

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 January 2011

We booked in to the Crosby B&B for new years eve break 2010. We stayed for 3 nights at a cost of £216.00

Upon arrival, my wife and I were very happy; the room was spacious and clean overall but we were worried when we were told the only other visitors were the owners teenage/young adult son and daughter. Unfortunately, our fears became true.
We went out to eat that evening and went to bed at 11pm but were kept up past 12.30am with her daughter and friends constantly being up and downstairs. We mentioned it to the owner in the morning of the 31st and she said she would speak to them. Early that evening we took a nap due to lack of sleep, but once again had to endure constant banging, up and down stairs and loud movements. We asked to move rooms, to find we couldnt and once again hoped for the best.

On our final night, we stayed up past midnight hoping the daughter would go to sleep, leaving us at least one quiet night but this was not the case. My wife is a real deep sleeper and was woken up just before 2am with... (yes you guessed it) banging and moving around. In the end, we got up, packed and left. This has only happened to us once before and we were refunded our nights stay; this has not or anything similar been offered.

Although £72 a night is very good at New Year, in the lake district you go to relax, and we are now spending our last night before going back to work tired and disappointed our New Year has been really spoilt.

On a positive note for other readers, the daughter and son are not always there, but the hotel is not very sound proofed and doors constantly could be heard, so the noise could easily be other guests.

It is a shame as it is a great location, apart from some tired corners of the room and bits of black bathroom sealant, the room was great. The owners gave us breakfast at 9.30 instead of 9am; but unfortunately their children dont either understand or care about their business as they have left two laid back people with a bad taste and unhappy memory of the Crosby B&B.

CROSBYPEN, Owner at Crosby Bed and Breakfast, responded to this review, 11 January 2011
We are very sorry if not slightly baffled that our guests left tired and disappointed. We are very proud of our good reviews and comments left in our visitors book but obviously on this one occasion we were not able to meet their demands. Our children (not teenagers anymore) do understand and care about our business. No friends were actually in our house apart from New Year's Eve, a night that does tend to make us all stay up longer and go to bed later.
