30th December

Start your New Year’s break by settling into your warm and welcoming room, before heading downstairs for a glass of mulled wine and a mince pie, served in the cosy lounges.

In the evening, join our General Manager and his team for a sparkling cocktail and canapés reception, to meet friends old and new, where you will hear all about the exciting 2 day programme that awaits. From here prepare for a delicious dinner and test your sleuthing skills between courses at our Panto Crime murder mystery, held in the atmospheric Georgian ballroom bedecked with beautiful decorations..

Get involved in solving the murder whilst you indulge in our festive three course dinner!

We had a fantastic time and was well looked after by all of the staff. We could not have asked for more or been treated better Mr and Mrs Butlers

New Years Eve

After a hearty Cumbrian breakfast and glass of Bucks Fizz, relax and enjoy the morning at your leisure whether it be ambling around the shops (plus spending in the sales!), taking a leisurely stroll, or joining our treasure hunt around Penrith’s town centre.

Once back at the hotel, a light lunch will be served before boarding our private coach for a scenic drive (approx. 20 minutes) to the pretty village of Glenridding.* Here you can sail away on the Ullswater Steamers (weather permitting), where you can admire the beautiful scenery, as you gently cruise along the lake, whilst we serve you a glass of hot mulled wine and mince pies.

On return to the hotel, tea and hot crumpets with Cumberland rum butter await you while you take time to relax by the open fires. Soon it will be time to change into your finery for a fabulous night in our magnificent Ballroom. Starting with champagne and canapés, we indulge in a sumptuous 5 course celebratory dinner before our resident DJ takes charge with music from past and present, guaranteed to have you dancing into the early hours. At midnight, the Piper welcomes 2019 in style, whilst we enjoy a glass of celebratory bubbly and a hot snack to keep you going until the wee hours.




New Years Day

For those guests who leave us today, we bid you a fond farewell after breakfast and look forward to your company once again in 2019. If you wish to extend your break, please take advantage of our ‘stay a little longer’ rates and enjoy the live music in the bar after dinner.


The George was incredible and second to none. The food was very lovely and never a lack of it. Would recommend this hotel to any who would listen! Mrs Erica
