We stayed at The George Hotel after our children had booked us in for 3 night stay as a surprise silver wedding anniversary present. Our stay was absolutely wonderful. Located right in the centre of Penrith the private car park to the rear of the hotel was an absolute godsend, the staff were warm and welcoming and made you feel very special immediately. The hotel itself exudes an old world elegance and charm with beautiful wood panelled walls, cosy corners filled with oversized armchairs to enjoy a pot of tea and read the paper, soft lighting and a feeling throughout of understated quality and excellance. Our room was pleasantly decorated, spotlessly clean with a lovely view of the chuch tower and a bed that was extremely comfortable. Dappers bar was a lovely intimate place to sit and have a drink and the staff in there were exceptional, as were the staff in the restaurant where we ate a 3 course meal every night, such a beautiful elegant room with food that was exceptional [would love chefs recipe for clementine and caramalised pineapple pavlova !!] Breakfast was also a delight with a huge choice of cereals fresh fruits pastries and continental meats as well as a full english that was superb or more subtly the smoked haddock. Penrith town itself was lovely too ,, lots of interesting little shops , bars etc and of course the whole of the Lake District Country Park on your doorstep. We loved this hotel and will definately be coming back for another stay, we loved the fact that the floorboards creaked, we loved the old wooden revolving doors complete with brass rails and original makers inscription on them , we loved the beautiful fireplaces and original features and best of all we loved the welcome we recieved, Norbett in the restaurant was a complete treasure as was young Tom and Callum in Dappers - you know who you are guys - thankyou . We had a fab time
