Luxurious guest house with great hosts , spotlessly clean with a beautiful decor. The breakfast was outstanding and I would heartily recommend this guest house to any potential guests. Stayed here as part of a CycleActive tour and will stay again when next in the area

I chose this guesthouse online from the photographs. It looked clean, organised interesting and welcoming. We were received through the front door and shown our room by the owner. He was a very welcoming and engaging gentleman who seemed genuinely interested to take the time to make us feel completely at home. The guest house itself was of the highest standard we have ever seen. The attention to detail is unparalleled. Everything you could possibly need was at arms reach in exactly the place you would expect to find it. The cleanliness was of an exceptional standard throughout and it is very clear these owners take the greatest pride in the service they provide. The price was extremely reasonable and superb value considering the time of year and the trend of staycation increasing prices across the board nationally. Although we were only staying a night in transit to the Irish ferry we fully intend to return specifically to stay again. We would highly recommend the Brooklands Guest House Penrith Cumbria.

This guest house is quite simply, faultless. The attention to detail is amazing, the welcome warm and the breakfasts are superb. The room is kept clean and supplied with tea and coffee. There wasn't anything more we could want. Will we go again, you bet.

We try to stay here when we're visiting family in Penrith. It's a great central location, the rooms and facilities are excellent, breakfast choice and quality are superb and the icing on the cake are the hosts Debbie and Leon, nothing is too much trouble. We had a visit in May and we're back up again soon….looking forward to it. Highly recommended….as long as you leave space for our trip!
