A friendly welcome and a hearty breakfast
A quiet very comfortable stay in a renovated Edwardian guest house oozing with character . The town is so interesting with great examples if unspoilt period architecture . We loved the shop fronts , the signage , the ruined castle , the easy access to The Lakes and M6 . Its not only a perfect place for a stop over en route to Scotland but a great position for visiting the towns in the Lake District . In 10 minutes we were at Ullswater . In 5 , we were on the M6 . Penrith is a town which appears not to be totally dependent on tourists so has a very authentic feel . Loved it and the guest house and would like to revisit .

Happy to stay again
As a woman travelling alone its always a pleasure to stay somewhere like the Albany house. The hosts are very pleasant, the rooms are spotless and the beds are really comfortable. The town center is just a short walk away with a huge choice of bars and restaurants to suit everyone's taste. The breakfast is beautifully presented and cooked to perfection !!

Great B&B.
Great B&B, large airy room, breakfast better than many of the four star hotels l have visited. Ideal base for visiting the lakes and the lady of the house gave excellent recomendations for local eateries.

Abolutely wonderful
I am annoyed at myself for not taking pictures here. Our room was lovely - plenty of space, a small work area, lovely tea/coffee making facilities including home made brownies and decent wifi. The toilet/shower was private but in a separate room. The decor was pleasant and the whole ambience of the place was relaxing. Parking was just outside and there were plenty of places to eat within 5 minutes walk. The castle was also 5 minutes walk away. Breakfast was exemplary - plenty of variety of well presented and high quality items. The cooked options were also decent and well presented. Service was friendly throughout.
