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

We attended Woolfest and stayed at the Shepherds Hotel; the location was perfect for the event and the town is only a ten minute drive away. The hotel itself does look a bit worn both inside and out, and may or may not have been used for something else in a past life. However, it serves its purpose very well.... More

Booked an overnight stay at the last minute, as this was almost the last room available in and around Keswick for the weekend we were a little apprehensive! As previous reviewers have stated, the outside of the building is not pretty! It looks like a concrete block of offices! The hotel has a large car park. Checking in and collection... More

We stayed for one night as I was taking part in a run in Keswick. The place was really well priced and a great location for access to the Lakes. We had no complaints at all, from the friendly staff, to the clean hotel and rooms, to the great breakfast. The beds were comfortable and shower powerful. The only issue... More

Large rooms, very quiet and great shower we enjoyed staying here. Breakfast is excellent and the staff could not be more helpful. Entrance is more understated as is reception, but friendly and easy book in more than made up for that! Be prepared for a 1 mile walk into the centre.

We just wanted a reasonably priced base to enjoy a weekend break in the Lakes. Ideally placed for the North and West Lakes, we found this place had good comfortable rooms, very clean and well looked after. Staff were very attentive and the food was very good. Excellent breakfast. The bar tends to close at 10.00pm but after a day... More
