Why We Love It
- This traditional hotel is housed in a Grade II-listed red-sandstone building in Penrith
- The Lake District National Park is 10 minutes' drive away
- "Spacious" (The AA) public areas include a wood-panelled lounge with open fires and a modern bar
"Inviting and popular" (The AA), The George Hotel is in the centre of Penrith, a bustling town with tea rooms, cosy pubs and a lively market on Tuesdays. The hotel is five minutes' walk from the red ruins of Penrith Castle, which dates from the 14th century and was built as a defence against Scottish raids.
Dalemain Mansion and Historic Gardens, and Ullswater -- one of the largest lakes in the Lake District, offering a variety of watersports and walking trails -- are less than 20 minutes' drive away. Keswick -- which Lonely Planet claims has "perhaps the most beautiful location...encircled by cloud-capped fells and nestled alongside the idyllic, island-studded lake of Derwentwater" -- is 25 minutes' drive from the hotel.
The George Hotel is on the C2C Sea to Sea Cycle Route. The property can store bikes and arrange packed lunches.
The hotel's public spaces retain a "timeless charm" (The AA), and are decorated with antique-style furnishings, vivid stained glass and local prints. Guests can sample traditional English cuisine in the restaurant, which has richly patterned drapes, a fireplace and an ornate ceiling, or enjoy light lunches and afternoon tea in the lounge. The bar serves a variety of beers and cocktails.
The "well equipped" (The AA) bedrooms have warm, neutral-toned décor and come with free Wi-Fi, a TV and tea- and coffee-making facilities.
