A great location in the middle of Keswick with the lake and a wealth of shops, restaurants and bars in walking distance of the hotel. We were greeted at the door when we first arrived by Richard who made us feel really welcomed and made sure we had everything we needed. Breakfast was fantastic every day with very generous portions....

Very nicely furnished and facilities were as expected. Excellent location. Don't expect a lightening fast internet connection - but was adequate for a bit research on the...

We really enjoyed our stay. Excellent location- literally a 2 minute walk to the town centre where there is an array of pubs, restaurants and shops. We stayed in The Suite, which was cosy and comfortable, with our own lounge and private bathroom etc. Only thing we felt could be improved is the mattress on the bed, we found it...
