The George Hotel
A charming traditional hotel near the Lake District, with treats on arrival, breakfast and a three-course dinner
The George Hotel in the historic town of Penrith is perched at the gateway to the Lake District National Park, giving you direct access to its spectacular mountains and shimmering lakes. Its location is perfect for long idyllic walks and robust rambles.
A traditional and thoroughly English affair with plenty of character, this relaxed and welcoming hotel offers hearty dining with a fantastic wine selection and a cosy lounge for scones and tea. The building is over 300 years old, so there are lots of quirky little original features which only add to its charm. The George has also won itself a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence 2014.
The cosy rooms are styled with traditional features, such as elegant light fixtures, large quilted beds and classic shades of duck egg blue and cream. Club rooms have en-suite bathrooms with a shower and bathtub and are filled with extra little luxuries like thick fluffy robes. Feature rooms are the loveliest of all and have been recently been refurbished to a high standard.
- Tea and coffee facilities
- Satellite TV
- Towelling bathrobes
As part of our offer, you'll arrive to welcome goodies and you can wolf down a full English breakfast each day. There's a lounge with a lighter menu of snacks and afternoon tea, alongside a more formal restaurant that uses locally produced ingredients and has an impressive wine cellar with both old and new wines. Choose from a range of traditional desserts to round off a delicious dinner, like sticky toffee pudding, damson and apple crumble or rich dark chocolate torte.
You get the best of both worlds at The George Hotel. You're on the edge of the Northern Lakes of the Lake District National Park, promising long leisurely walks by the water's edge and through the spectacular countryside, but you're also in the pretty town of Penrith, giving you access to its shops, cafes and old-world charm.
Travel is NOT included in this offer.
