Something of a local treasure, The George Hotel is ideally placed in the centre of the bustling market town of Penrith, giving easy access to the Lake District and the North Pennines.

This gem of a hotel exudes traditional style and quality reminiscent of a bygone era from the moment you step through its revolving doors. Authentic wood paneling, old local prints and brasses on the walls and plush furnishings and fabrics create a unique, refined ambience.

Relax in the recently restyled Dappers Bar, take afternoon teas in front of open fires or dine in the intimate candle-lit restaurant, with its enticing menu featuring regional produce and mouth-watering desserts.

Dance the night away in the elegant Minstrel Ballroom, the perfect venue for any event whether it be your wedding, birthday party, christening, family gatherings or other celebrations.
