We stayed at the North Lakes , Penrith whilst enroute to Glasgow. On arrival , like others we were a little concerned at the external appearance of the building, it's a little bland looking to be honest. The initial vestibule is also a little disappointing but then you walk into the body of the building and that is all forgotten....

Very relaxing and enjoyable overnight stay last night, room very comfortable with everything required on hand, excellent meal and wine in restaurant with very friendly staff in fact all the staff throughout the hotel were very welcoming and friendly. Will certainly be using again, well worth the visit. Great location if you are visiting the Lakes.

We’ve been visiting The North Lakes Hotel in Penrith for nearly 30 years, and it's just getting better and better. The bedrooms have recently been refurbished very high standard, with a themed décor that perfectly suits the fact that the hotel sits right on the north-east edge of some of the most stunning and beautiful countryside in the UK. This...

I arrived late at night to a very warm welcome from young receptionist. The hotel was clean, the room small but comfortable. A good indoor pool if you need a swim. The breakfast included standard continental and a very good cooked option.

Stayed for a few days during half term. Plenty of parking. Don't be put off by the external look inside is great. Check in swift. Lift broke only downside of the stay. Family room large, clean and comfortable. Breakfast really good and plenty of choice. Pool and changing rooms clean and tidy. Pool never too busy. Will return.
