About the hotel
A gateway to the Lakes provided by the princely George Hotel, Penrith The George Hotel in Penrith has played host to royalty throughout history and allows guests to experience the charm, tradition and welcoming atmosphere of a gentler time. As Penrith is known as the gateway to the Lake District, it is perfectly located for exploring the Pennines and the Lakes. Step into the hotel through the historic revolving doors and be greeted by the friendly, familiar faces of the professional staff.
The nostalgic wood panelling, old oak beams, antique furniture and traditional local prints combined with luxurious, modern fabrics to create the George Hotel’s unique atmosphere. The popular phrase “Meet me at the George” is well used as the elegant lounges are always popular for morning coffee and cake, lunches and decidedly decadent afternoon teas. There are 35 well-appointed en-suite bedrooms; the George Hotel is the perfect base for exploring the surrounding area and charming market town it sits within. Food and Drink Overlooking Penrith’s main street, the Devonshire Restaurant has been completely transformed with sophisticated silver and gold décor and a refined menu that focuses on local ingredients. Offering a table d'hôte and à la carte menu its style is contemporary English with strong traditional influences, with the freshest of ingredients, many produced locally in and around Penrith within a 25 mile radius, being used. The George Hotel also has an extensive wine cellar which offers a fine choice of specially selected wines to complement the restaurant menu. For relaxed informal dining there’s Dapper’s Bar - a modern, vibrant and relaxing place to feast on food throughout the day or night. Try the tapas or something more substantial – and they offer a great line-up of cocktails too. A great meeting place with friends; perfect for dinner or drinks. Conferencing and events If you’re looking for a conference venue in Penrith, few hotels can offer the unique position of The George. One of the hotels’ best features is its location, in the heart of the traditional market town of Penrith yet only minutes from the M6 motorway and West Coast mainline railway station, with spectacular Lake Ullswater only 4 miles away. Penrith is that ideal evolution of a modern day market town retaining all the Old World charm of a time gone by. Superfast Free Fibreoptic broadband is available throughout the whole hotel. Upstairs the Georgian Ball Room with its ornate ceiling and large windows makes the hotel a stunning and unique location for parties, dinners, dances and weddings.

Oldie worldie, great food and customer service
Quirky, oldie worldie hotel, great for relaxing and filling yourself with great quality food and good value for money.
We stayed one night for a chill out, and did just that. We booked a double room and got a huge 4 poster bed in a massive lounge room. This isn't op spec stuff, but it was warm, welcoming, charming and we loved it. We would go again.
Great overnight stay
The hotel was lovely as always, staff very helpful, except one, but that was minor.
Very large room, comfortable bed and fresh and filling breakfast
