We first stayed here by happy accident a couple of years ago just after the refurbishment ( we had planned to stay at another hotel in the square).Since when we have returned and stayed 3 times and dropped in for lunch. We booked for the 3 day Christmas package, but when paying the balance were offered a 4th night free....

Very nice place to sit and have a drink, we had a meal in the restaurant and it was excellent along with the cheese and biscuits, the coffee was one of the best we have tasted, so all in all we had a very nice meal.

This was our second stay at the Inn on the Square - and we have been staying at hotel in the Lakes for many years. This hotel is the best, by far - for all the important reasons: the staff are excellent, the decor is top-quality: from the stylish luxurious lobby (yes, even in Cumbria) to the Egyptian cotton bedsheets...

We had a lovely stay at the Inn on the Square, the Town room was spacious and clean with a very comfortable bed. We had a delicious meal at the bistro and would like to compliment the chef for his efforts; the home main meal was excellent and the desserts scrumptious! Laura deserves a special mention too; she greeted us...

We love the Front Bar in this hotel. The décor is modern and plush and it is very comfortable. The Christmas decorations in the entrance/foyer to the hotel were very luxurious and eye catching and made the hotel look very inviting. There is a very extensive choice of drinks and food is also available. The staff are professional, efficient and...

First time away from home town at Christmas, missed all the grandchildren of course. The whole package was fabulous, Keswick is a great little town and plenty to do, walking, drinking real ale and shops. Only little issues, very little, potato rossti on the breakfast menu, awful, and that opinion was shared by most guests, and the last night rib...

We have just returned from a night at the Inn on the Square and have had another extremely positive experience. The staff, particularly the girls in the restaurant and on the front desk, are very welcoming and friendly and provide guests with a warm and positive experience. We have recently stayed at The Borrowdale Hote (which has the same owner)...

Impromptu visit over the Christmas break. The decorations were beautiful. We were lucky enough to get a seat in the front bar where dogs are allowed. Decided to sample the burgers which were delicious. Week worth a visit if you are in Keswick.
