Stayed here this week whilst on a course, fantastic rooms, great atmosphere, absolutely wonderful breakfast which caters for all needs, most polite hosts and great location. What more can be said other than you won't get a better value for money B&B in Penrith that has a great Central location.

I have stayed in many Bed & Breakfasts but this is good as it gets. I only live 25 miles away but we had been on a retirement do that day so stayed over in Penrith. From the moment we met Leon at the door to when we left the next morning the service was first class. The rooms are to a very high standard and you can see lots of care is taken to make sure that everything you need is in the room which also has free Wifi. Breakfasts is superb. If you are staying in Penrith this has to be the place to stay.

Thanks again for the excellent accomodation, food and service. We will return again when in Penrith.
We have already recommended the guesthouse to colleagues.
The local shopping and restaurants are within walking distance and Carlisle is great for some retail therapy!
The local award winning chip shop is definately worth a visit.
Great food at Brooklands also

Me and my wife stayed here recently after taking part in Born Survivor so needed somewhere comfortable to stay after a gruelling challenge and The Brooklands Guest house didn't disappoint! The staff were at the door to welcome us with great advice on the area and we had a lovely room at the back of the hotel with a decent size room including mini fridge, bath and shower.

The breakfast the next day was superb with freshly cooked food and a massive selection of fruits, yoghurt, cereal and cooked foods and nothing was too much trouble.

Would definitely stay here again if we were to come back to Penrith

Room Tip: We stayed in the deluxe suite on the second floor to the back so was very private and a good sized r...

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.
