A second visit to this beautifully presented hotel. Room lovely, steakhouse excellent and the bar service was so friendly - one barman was a fellow gin geak and the other sent for his little dog to play with ours! Dogs welcomed everywhere except the main restaurant but there are tables set in a foyer area if you don't want to...

Have just returned from a weekend in Keswick, although did not stay at the Inn on the Square, we did visit the Front Bar on both days and what an amazing bar it is. The choice of Gins available is very good and the knowledge of the bar staff: Grant and Andreas, absolutely brilliant! They were very helpful and friendly...

We were warmly welcomed and checked in quickly. Our room was spotless and nicely decorated. The waterfall shower was wonderful and I loved the complimentary products they used. The bed was really comfy and we had a great nights sleep. Breakfast the next morning was nice, a good selection on the continental buffet and of hot food from the menu....

Thank you , thank you. Someone realised that not everyone needs dark wood and swirly carpets in a traditional atmosphere when visiting the Lake District. Contemporary with a little bit of local Herdwick, works a treat. Fantastic decor, really good food - the breakfast is particularly hearty - and maybe most important, young, caring, well trained staff. The Herdwick rooms...

We stayed here with our two dogs for one night. We've had bar meals here and it all looked very nice but I wasn't sure what to expect with an overnight stay, this was the first time we've stayed in a dog friendly hotel. There was no need to worry, the room & hotel was immaculate, you would not have...

We came for 2 nights with friends. The hotel is pet friendly so we took the dogs. The hotel is smart , bedroom was well appointed. Variety at breakfast and we are in the dining room on the Saturday and had a good meal. Staff were all friendly. We would definitely return.

Stayed on one of the Sunday night deals. Nice lunch in the restaurant followed by Dinner. Lovely gesture when handed a voucher for two free cocktails. Nice room with a view of Skiddaw, parking nearby for £2 with a voucher provided by the hotel. The dinner allowance was enough for us to share a chateau briand (fantastic). The only bit...

We recently stayed at the hotel on the 29th & 30th of April which was a present to my husband for our Wedding Anniversary. I was very disappointed with both the service throughout the hotel and quality of the food. We regularly stay in Keswick as we have a lot of family who live in the town and have stayed...
