We decided to try Roundthorn as we have stayed in other Classic Lodges and it looked very appealing. We were not disappointed as the hotel itself is very clean and is tastefully decorated with quality fabrics and is in a secluded location with great views of the local scenery. The staff were all very pleasant, professional and helpful and appeared...

We went for the second time on 4 March. This is a small, very friendly hotel with excellent staff offering a good service and wonderful food. The only negative comment I could make again is that whilst the bed is very comfortable if alone, the mattress is very bouncy and so every movement is highlighted, hence waking you up!

Searched online for a hotel near Penrith. Needed an overnight stay whilst we opened up our nearby static caravan. Didn't know what to expect as it was a very good deal, and usually with cheap deals the rooms are at the back of the hotel and food is just OK. What a find! fabulous views from our front bedroom, great...

A near perfect expirence, competent and friendly staff, clean and very comfortable room and brilliant breakfast. Top of its class for value for money. It's not a plush luxury hotel stuffed with amenities, it's a short stay, quiet country hotel in close driving distance to Penrith and the M6. But what it offers it provides exceptionally well.

My husband and I had an overnight stay on a Friday night. We had room 7, which was really comfortable, spacious and provided a fantastic view over the distant fells. The bed was spacious and gave us both a great night's sleep. The bathroom was clean and we were provided with bathrobes, which added a little touch of luxury. Good...

Stayed here for one night as a stopover on the way to Aviemore. The rooms are lovely with a nice boutique hotel feel. The room had a beautiful big bathroom with a large corner bath as well as a proper shower cubicle. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. All in all a great choice and would highly recommend.
