Great place to stay. Nice location. Room, breakfast and evening meal were all excellent, Nice views from room. Booked this at short notice and would happily stay here again. It was also very peaceful and I got a nice night's sleep.

Stayed for one night on bank hol weekend. Had booked last minute and yes if you want a swanky hotel overlooking a lake it's prob not for you. However was a good base for getting round the lakes and although carpets in room worn and scorched our room was extremely clean and large and staff were helpful. Breakfast was tasty... More

This hotel is terrible. From the unkept, deteriorating exterior to the ignorant, unhelpful staff and the filthy state of the room. This would be the worst hotel I have ever written review on! The exterior of the hotel does not create a good first impression. There are large pieces of concrete fallen from the walls, stairs taped off and a... More

I visited this hotel in winter. There was a nice snow view en a lot of sheep's to watch. That's why the name came from i ques. The people were very friendly. The hotel is situated in the middle of some important highroads. So its very central. Bus stops in the neighborhood also. But no traffic noise. There s a... More

The hotel is clean and the staff are friendly. It's situated near the town itself and is very close to the A66 so it's easy to get to, which makes it a good base. This hotel has a power shower that really is indeed a power shower. There is also free parking and free wifi. The hotel itself was very... More

I stay here regularly when visiting family & friends. If you are a tourist also a great base for exploring the NW Lakes. Good comfortable rooms. En-suites good. Free Wifi. Acres of hassle free parking. Friendly staff. Usually very quiet at night. The breakfasts are really good. The 'built in' restaurant is good in evenings if you don't feel like... More

I'd booked 2 family rooms as we were visiting family, so made a visit to Keswick first. Only thing is if you want a double bed you have to ask for one or you get 2 singles, I had'nt realised this! Hubby had a shower and thoroughly enjoyed it, very powerful. Plenty of room for us and our granddaughter. The... More

As others have said, this wasn't built as a hotel and it shows. However my room was large and clean, if in need of a bit of TLC, with the shower being a big plus point. Breakfast was adequate, and rather reflected the price range of this hotel. I stayed for four nights and slept well in the large double... More

The outside looks a little tired but on arrival quite nice inside. The room was spacious clean and modern. Large shower and nice views. The bar and restaurant staff very friendly. Good food and drink available. Would stay again
