Macdonald Leeming House, Penrith
Tranquil elegance with great views
We were looking for a nice place to stay with beautiful views in the Lake District. McDonald Leeming House certainly met the bill. The balcony from our room had a gorgeous view across the hotel grounds down to Ullswater and across the lake to the mountain on the other side. The dining room (where we ate breakfast each morning and dinner one night) had a similar view. The reception staff were very helpful; they lent us a plug adapter when we could not find ours, and they called other places in the Lake District for us to confirm opening hours and make appointments. Leeming House does not have its own spa, but they made arrangements for us to use the McDonald spa in Bowness, which required a pretty drive that we wanted to make anyway.

Very Good8.0
A really enjoyable stay in a lovely relaxing hotel. Dining room a little strange and not sure about the layout, but service and views made up for whatever it was that was lacking. Cosy sitting rooms and cute little bar. Great views, very comfortable. Great staff. Can't fault this place. Will revisit and look forward to it!

MacDonald Leeming Hotel - Unprofessional Organisat
We booked a three night stay at MacDonald Leeming House nine months in advance, it was a special holiday as our family were coming from America and we wanted to make sure everything was organised. The week before we received final confirmation of the booking with a welcome email. The DAY before our stay I received a telephone call telling me that the hotel could only accommodate us for two days as the hotel had a private function the third day and the hotel was full. They had made arrangements for us to go to another MacDonald hotel at a different location, a different Lake approximately 15 mile away. They offer us a bottle of wine and afternoon tea in compensation. No discount off our bill. I consider this extremely unprofessional cancelling a booking made so far in advance and confirmed the week before. I can’t understand how the hotel didn’t know the hotel was fully booked until the day before we were due to arrive! I certainly could not recommend this hotel.
