I've already reviewed the restaurant/pub, but since the hotel is on here as a separate listing, I thought I'd do a separate review for it! We stayed in a Standard Double/Twin room, which was more than spacious enough. The bed(s) were amazingly comfortable and we had a brilliant view of the estuary (which we requested at time of booking.) The...

Went to this hotel for our 40th anniversary first weekend in February. Had a truly wonderful break, were thoroughly spoilt. ALL the staff were fabulous, so friendly and helpful and very kind. Exceptional, above and beyond the call of duty. Will visit again for lunch, and maybe even my birthday. THANK YOU

Stayed for the weekend in February. Found our room spacious very clean and warm. Decorated to a high standard. Breakfast was delicious with lots of choice. Had a meal in the bar on Saturday night the menu was extensive and food was of a high standard. We found all staff polite and attentive. Would recommend this hotel.

Enjoyable evening with great food and friendly service. The bedroom was a good size and well furnished. The breakfast brunch had lots of choice and the later check-out was thoughtful after the previous evening's celebrations. Could certainly recommend a stay here.

Amazing food, beautiful setting. I had the fish of the day which was a pan fried white fish served with Chorizo, roast new potatoes and very fresh greens. All tasted amazing. My only complaint was I would have like a little more for £15 My sister and wife had a cheese and a meat board each which looked amazing Kids...

We stayed at the Pennington hotel for 2 nights this weekend and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our accommodation was the junior suite in the nearby inn at ravenglass which was owned by the hotel. Although I wouldn't have called it a " junior suite" it was immaculately clean and well furnished. The only problem I had was the pub bar...

Really they would have been better staying closed. The previous day had been an award ceremony and a private function and the chef had phoned in sick. Our starters arrived minus the egg and when we commented it appeared, cold and half coated in bread crumbs. The deli boards full of bought in meat and flan were ok but my...

We hadn't intended to visit the Pennington, we were headed elsewhere but found the kitchen closed so we diverted here and weren't in the best of moods when we arrived. However, the Pennington staff were very helpful and the food was really good so we went in miserable and came out happy! It's in a lovely setting too - if...
