Thoroughly English interiors and an award-winning restaurant at a 350-year-old hotel near the Lake District – includes breakfast and one dinner with prosecco

  • Situated in the historic town of Penrith, The George Hotel is a charming Grade I-listed hotel perched at the gateway to the Lake District National Park, giving you direct access to its spectacular mountains and shimmering lakes.

  • Dating back to 1665, the hotel is a traditional and thoroughly English affair with plenty of character. Double rooms are styled with classic features, like elegant light fixtures, large quilted beds and classic rich neutral and red shades.

  • A full Cumbrian breakfast sets you up grandly for a day roving the lakes. For dinner, the formal two AA Rosette-awarded Devonshire Restaurant uses locally produced ingredients to create contemporary cuisine with traditional influences. It also boasts an impressive wine cellar with both old and new wines, plus a range of tempting traditional desserts.

  • The Lounge serves up a lighter menu of snacks and afternoon tea in a cosy, traditional setting – think wooden paneling and antique furniture – while the modern Dapper's Bar is on hand for all-day casual dining alongside a selection of drinks, including beer and cocktails.

What is a Smart Stay?

How are these deals different to your flash sales?

Some getaways are less about blowing the budget on a huge suite, and more about discovering a knock-out destination. When it’s the sights beyond the hotel walls you’re really interested in, it makes perfect sense to go for smart accommodation with great reviews, plenty of creature comforts and a price well below what you’d expect for the area.


And that’s what these stays are – ultra-affordable three- and four-star hotels chosen as carefully as our chicest five-stars. Whether it’s a well-picked base for London or a fly-and-flop break in the sun, you’ll find our Smart stays in savvy, accessible locations, usually with dinner included and other thoughtful extras that are the signature of a Secret Escapes holiday.
