We had a lovely, cosy room, the beds were comfortable and fresh Our hostess, Pat, was great. She cooked us a lovely breakfast every morning and recommended us beautiful walks. The décor was modern and classic, the breakfast room was open and comfortable.

Stayed here over the new year period. Generally the whole of Keswick had "no vacancies" and so parking was a little bit tight, but still we managed to find a space on the road of the hotel at each attempt. The room was nice and warm, a little dated looking in terms of furniture and decoration but clean, and a... More

Squirrel Lodge is just a few blocks from the main attractions in Keswick, Great yet quiet location. Pat was a kind and helpful host. We were cycling across Northern England and forget to tell her about our bikes. She was able to get us secure storage. Overall, for Keswick, the lodge is a good value, clean, simple, good food. Albeit... More

The owner is really friendly, helpful and welcoming. The room looked lovely and was very clean with fresh towels and coffee, chocolate and tea facilities which were regularly replenished. The hotel is central and we could easily walk to the lovely lake and the town centre. The breakfast was excellent with varied menus to suit all likes. I was glad... More

Our party booked two rooms: a double and a single. 1. The single room came with an non-shared external bathroom. This was clearly marked in the website but we missed this fact (having never been in a guest house), so the person staying in the single bedroom was not happy (our fault). However the guest house owner took on our... More

So happy to have stayed with Pat and Janice at Squirrel Lodge as we explored the Lake District. Warm welcome & great communications from Pat; the most immaculate place we've stayed. Everything we needed was at hand, including hot cocoa, tea & cookies provided in the room & an incredible full breakfast served by Janice, who seems a little shy... More

We really enjoyed our visit to Squirrel lodge. The owner is lovely and greeted us on arrival helping to find parking (which is actually very easy given the vast amount of free parking close by!) The location is great and within 10 minute walk of the main town. The rooms are very cosy and comfortable, as is the rest of... More

I recently stayed at Squirrel Lodge in the twin room at the back on the top floor, which was very quiet and had everything we needed for our central base in Keswick for the film festival. Would recommend the breakfast, and in fact the owner very kindly made us an early breakfast as we had to leave early on our... More

I did enjoy a lot about our stay at Squirrel Lodge - The location is terrific, with plenty of free on-street parking and a two-minute walk to the town centre. The owner is very helpful and friendly, and offers some great advice on how to get around, what's good to see and where's good to eat. She was also extremely... More

Stayed for two nights, found the staff warm and Welcoming. Decor is quirky with cute and appropriate ornaments in the dining room. The room was clean. Background noise was minimal. Breakfast was lovely and all of my individual requests were catered for. Keswick is beautiful and we will be returning
