눉First of all, the River Garth is in a beautiful setting. Our room was lovely and cozy, and had a wonderful view of the river winding past our shared balcony. The town of Penrith and the highway are just over the hill from the property making its location very convenient. The breakfast was well cooked and plentiful. But there were things about our stay that can't be overlooked. While our hostess was a lovely lady, seemingly eager to please, we had some occurrences that severely clouded our stay and affected our rating. First off, we arrived late enough to check in (around 4:00 p.m.), but early enough to still see some sights in the area, and there were many on our list. Our hostess seemed a bit flustered when we arrived, explaining she still had a lot of ironing to do. We almost felt as if we'd intruded. However, she recovered and graciously showed us to our room, at which time my adult daughter placed her backpack upon the bedspread. This evoked an instant reaction from our hostess who exclaimed we were not to put anything on the bedspread as it might get the coverlet dirty and then she'd have to launder it. Trust me when I say my daughter's backpack was anything but soiled. Suddenly alert and a little paranoid, we obediently followed the hostess's every instruction, right down to every little twist and turn of the complicated key system. We wanted to leave and explore the area a bit but she informed us she had two more guests coming and wanted us to park our car first or the other two cars would have a difficult time in the narrow parking area, and she told us they would be leaving before us in the morning (she hadn't even asked us when we were planning to depart). We felt rather like captives as we parked. However, she offered to drive us into town to explore, which we reluctantly accepted. She also asked us our breakfast preferences.

눉Absolutely nothing could be said against this place
눇there is not enough room to explain what we liked, from ringing the doorbell to leaving everything was wonderful. The couple owning this 5star bed and breakfast could teach major hotel chains just how guests should be treated. We hope to go back and tour the lakes from their base.
