“Continuing to excel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2014

Another overnight stay at this fabulous guest house. We were treated to coffee and muffin on arrival and of course the amazing breakfasts. Always welcoming Leon again excelled.

Could do with a pillow upgrade but otherwise a fantastic stay

An excellent nights sleep. Very comfortable. Big ticks for shower, wifi, iPod/iphone dock and best of all breakfast. Great work Leon. Thoroughly recommend it for what ever reason you happen to be in Penrith. We had to check in late after doing a gig and couldn't have been looked after better.
Only warning: Leon's welcoming handshake can break bones! ;)

This is such a fabulous B &B that when ever we are working in Penrith this is the place to stay. Lovely hotel, fantastic hospitality from Leon and staff, fab rooms and excellent food. Most definitely would recommend Brooklands to anybody staying for either business or pleasure.

We stopped at Penrith for a couple of nights en route to Glasgow. We'd booked the room months before goingbut before leaving had realised it might be a slightly different holiday than usual for us, as I was now 6 months pregnant. We got in touch with Brooklands to ask if there was a DVD player in the room, explaining our situation. There wasn't one in the the original room we'd booked but they moved us with no hassle. The guest house is a 5 main walk from the centre of town. The rooms are well equipped, we had a four poster bed. There was a complimentary fruit bowl in the room, a great selection of teas and coffees, chgoc, biscuits and a small fridge. Penrith is a great place for exploring the lakes. We took the train up and hired a car from enterprise who picked us up from Brooklands. Brooklands also have us a parking permit, even though we hadn't requested in advance so we were able to leave the car overnight. Very helpful reception and a great breakfast, almost too big!

I have stayed at the excellent Brooklands a few times now as I work in Penrith and it is always great. The welcome is warm, the rooms are lovely and very comfortable (even the single which is perfectly fine for me) and the breakfast is superb. Just lovely.

Room Tip: No problems at all as I've stayed at either side. I like the view of the churchyard personally!

Stayed here for two nights and can only say it was excellent and the best B&B I have stayed in. The four poster room was lovely. The comfort, attention to detail, quality of fixtures an fittings was superb. Leon made us very welcome and the breakfast was excellent. I was here on business but I'll be back again soon. Highly recommended
