Our welcome was warm and friendly even though the Hotel had been very busy that weekend. Rooms very comfortable, higgledy piggeldy floors full of character. Great fish and chips in the restaurant. The 'cow pie' was huge and apparently delicious. WiFi worked so my friends could stay in touch with their business.

Stayed overnight 20-21 June 2015 in room 10 and have to say I would definitely stay here again. Staff were all welcoming and friendly. Our room was spacious and well appointed. There are 4 private car parking areas at the back of the hotel which was handy. The BIG treat was we booked in for our evening meal - I... More

We cannot thank the George Hotel staff enough, after accommodating us when another local hotel cocked up our booking! We were given a huge family room for the same price we had paid for the first hotel. The staff were so warm and welcoming and the breakfast was superb. A really good location, right in the centre of Keswick. We... More

The George had several rooms all well appointed and spacious. I have stayed in 4 different rooms and all have been very good. There is limited parking at the rear and you need to get a permit from reception when you arrive, although limited I have never had a problem with parking. The staff are friendly and always accommodating, any... More

The George Hotel in Keswick is cosy and homely with very helpful staff. Full of atmosphere,spacious twin room well appointed, excellent food, a great place to stay right in the middle of Keswick with parking at the rear or permit to park in public car park.one of the oldest Hotels/Pubs in Keswick with lots of history.

I booked the George based on a recommendation. It's a very old building right in the heart of Keswick (2 mins walk from the old Moot Hall). Good bar and the restaurant is good too. Didn't have the cow pie but a couple next to me did and it looked amazing! The best thing about the hotel is its team.... More

Although we,ve stayed in Keswick many times, we,ve never managed to get a table at the George. We pre-booked this time and boy was it worth it. Lovely friendly staff. Great service and fabulous food. Some places in Keswick serve decidedly average food at above average price. The George isn,t one of them. We will definitely return.

Everytime we visit Keswick we are drawn back to The George cow pie. It is packed with slabs of tender beef and smothered in delicious gravy. Anyone who manages a full sized piece is worthy of a place on 'man vs food!' Heaven, a must for all pie lovers out there!!!

Never have I been to a hotel where the staff are so welcoming and kind! They really do go out of their way to help, making it my new fave hotel in the Lakes. The pub has a great atmosphere and the location is superb being in the heart of Keswick too. I would definitely recommend!!! -Jennifer
