We were a group of 5 staying at the Dorchester House for 2 nights, and I have to say we couldn't have asked for more. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, our hosts were fantastic. They were helpful and friendly, and offered us lots of advice for how to get the best out of Keswick and... More

We have just spent 2 nights at Dorchester House and were very impressed on all counts. We arrived late due to problems on the M6 but the owners still checked us in cheerfully and promptly. Our room was spotless and comfortable and the breakfast first class. The owners were knowledgeable about eateries in the town and areas to walk, advising... More

Dorchester House is situated only a short walk from the town centre and the beautiful Derwentwater. Keswick is a very nice town to explore the Lakes from. We felt very welcome in the B&B, Dennis and Anne are very friendly and welcoming people. The breakfast was lovely! Dennis does a very nice cooked breakfast and Anne makes her own jams...... More

Less than five minutes from the centre of Keswick, but located in a quiet side street, Dorchester House is an excellent base for a stay in the Lake District break. I paid just £45 per night bed and breakfast, and this is as good value as it sounds. The breakfast was very good, including both porridge and a full vegetarian... More

My husband and our 21 year old daughter stayed two nights at this lovely B and B. The hosts, Anne and Dennis, were welcoming, charming, and served a delicious breakfast. The room was spacious and clean and the location was perfect. My husband's only complaint was that the shower stall was a little "cozy". Would love to go back soon.
