We have just returned from a wonderful few days and cannot recommend the Roundhouse apartment enough. We had a one bedroom apartment which was excellent and finished to a very high standard. The apartment was perfect for 2 people and had everything needed for a short break. The bed was huge and very comfortable and the bathroom/shower excellent. It is in a lovely setting and convenient for Penrith and getting to the North Lakes. The hotel staff were also excellent and both friendly and helpful.

we have just got back from Roundthorn and we stayed in the Luxury Mews Apartments which are at the side of the hotel. They are very new and are really nice with great views over the hillsides. We stayed in a one bedroom with lounge diner,luxury bathroom and fantastic bedroom. If its a luxury break that you are after then stay here .We ate in the hotel resturant one night and had a very nice meal with great service and we also used some of the local resturants with we found on tripadvisor. All in all we had no complaints .Lovely place to stay.

Just back from a fantastic stay at the Roundthorn country house hotel. Room was spacious and comfortable with lovey views of the surrounding countryside. Staff friendly and helpful. Hotel only has 10 rooms which is great and service and experience had felt very personable. Food on offer was great! Limited menu but this was an advantage as food served was fresh and tasty and reasonably priced. Good breakfast selection available too! Only (minor) feedback is rooms in the hotel could be done with a update/refresh as felt a bit dated - perhaps this is in keeping with the building which was cosy and had character. Breakfast had to be pre-ordered - which we didn’t mind, though planning what you want to eat next morning can be tricky and don’t know if possible to change your mind?!?

Stayed for three nights in a standard double , room was nicely appointed and comfortable. The bed was lovely . Bathroom was a shower and was nice and hot . The room overall was very hot even with the heating off and the window open , a fan is provided in the robe . Food is excellent and great value , have to book a table and breakfast must be ordered the night before . Had the beef on the first night and it was just delicious .The breakfast is cooked fresh and lovely .

We had our daughters wedding here last weekend and it was absolutely stunning. The grounds were beautiful, the house was amazing and the day was made magical by the outstanding service we received from the staff. The food was delicious, and the DJ was really good! Thank you all so much xxxx
