Booked rooms online for a family holiday and phoned to ask a few follow-up questions. I was told that the hotel does not accept children, which is unfortunate for us, but good to know before we showed up on their doorstep. However, when I tried to explain that it is quite possible to book online for a family with small... More

This reviewer has not stayed at Lairbeck. She booked rooms via a booking agent where it is quite explicit that we do not take bookings for children. The booking agent process only allows adults to be included in the booking. This is a copy of the booking cancellation with the booking agency: Cancellation Summary Room 1: Gran’s Room - Deluxe...

I stayed here recently with my boyfriend for two nights, I'd never been to a b&b before but was extremely impressed. The hosts were very polite and catered to any of my needs. The location is beautiful in a little village just a 15 minute walk from both Keswick centre and Derwent waters. I stayed in 'the cook's' room, which... More

We wanted a comfortable hotel in Keswick away from the town centre. The Lairbeck fit the bill very well. It is about 10 minutes walk from the centre, and is located in a nice quiet road just a few minutes walk from a good pub/restaurant. The hotel has its own gardens where you can sit and enjoy a drink from... More
