Feel completely conned. Stayed in room 108. All night long every few minutes some industrial fans came on outside our window. We were told it was quieter out back. Total lies. Conned by the management. Take the money and run should be this mob's motto. The noise kept us awake all night. I don't know whether the noise was a...

We arrived just before check-in on Saturday and the receptionist on duty was lovely. She issued us a £2 parking permit and kept our luggage safe so that we could go for a wander. Great first impressions! We came back at around 5pm to check -in properly and had a different receptionist, she too was lovely. We were in room...

We arrived just after check in time (3pm) and were greeted warmly by a lovely receptionist (Nora). Check in was swift and succinct. Car parking is limited on site and needs booking well in advance but we were able to get a parking permit for an over night stay in the towns central car park for £2.00. Initial impressions of...

We stayed here for 3 nights on a 2 night b&b and evening dinner plus one night free b&b. Right on the town square, the décor of the hotel and the staff are excellent. Rooms are spacious and comfortable all with en suite shower rooms, after a hard days walking it would have been nice to soak in a bath...

This is a review of the restaurant only as we were not staying in the hotel. This is a fairly new hotel in an old building that has been very well refurbished. We wanted a rib-eye steak meal on our last evening in Keswick and found it here. The restaurant was tastefully decorated, there was plenty of room between the...

This is a great hotel. The location is ideal: right in the centre of Keswick, close to lots of shops, restaurants, and a large car park and within minutes of Derwent Water and the stunning Lakeland countryside. The Inn on the Square offers the perfect balance between style and practicality; the decor is contemporary and luxurious, with twinkly chrome lighting,...

We first visited here when it had just opened and thought it was fabulous, so hence our return visit this August. The standards had been maintained throughout. - our Herdwick bedroom was exceptionally clean with all the amenities, staff were most friendly and welcoming. In the evening, we dined in the Brossen restaurant, and both enjoyed a superb steak -...

This is a recently modernised traditional inn, brought up-to-date in a Scandinavian style that belies its Lake District heritage, but seems to attract a lively clientele. Smallish comfy rooms, good big showers and huge king-size beds. Dog friendly, so the hotel is filled with people with dogs. Nice restaurant with visible kitchen. Great steaks, good wine list. Only real problem...
