We chose the Strathmore because it was one of the few guest houses that had parking and was only a few minutes walk into the centre of Keswick. It had so much more to offer, thanks to Paul our very friendly host who appeared to do everything to ensure the smooth running, nothing was too much trouble. Our room was...

We visited back in September for 3 nights and booked more or less at the last minute, just a week in advance. I was kinda worried what we would get booking so late but it was amazing! We had a room at the front of the house, facing the churchyard. It is compact but as you would expect in an...

Food is very well presented and tasty. Good selection and the owner cannot do enough for you. He is very helpful indeed. It is a guest house set over three floors so if you happen to get a rom on the top floor then there are at least 35 steps to climb which is quite a prospect if you are...

I arrived on such short notice but Paul took me right in. Was the friendliest and most understanding with my situation. I give this place and the owner "Paul" 5 stars times 10! Would definitely recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone!

We had the suite (Room 2) which was fantastic. Spacious room, lovely big shower, comfy leather settee with good choice of DVDs to watch IF the weather turned nasty - which it didn't! Ideally situated for easy access to the town, lake, theatre etc etc. Would highly recommend & will certainly stay here again.

Fabulous stay of two nights in room No 7, very clean with lovely big bathroom. We were asked to complete a questionnaire type form to request which items we would like for breakfast. Fruit, yoghurt, cereal etc was buffet style and then we were served with our wonderful personalised breakfast - delicious. The host is extremely friendly. Would highly recommend.

Quite simply this accommodation is fantastic not only in price and location but Paul the owner is one of the most accommodating genuinely nice people you could wish to meet. I rang in advance and asked for sum roses and bubbles to be in the room for our arrival which was a simple "yes no problem" conversation. The rooms are...
