Our hosts Ann and Dennis were absolutely wonderful, kind and helpful. The breakfast was one of the best we've ever had. The room we stayed in was the family room at the front which was large, bright and airy. The sheets smelt of lovely washing powder and softner. The shower was powerful with lovely scented, locally sourced shower gels and... More

Dennis & Anne are hosts par excellence. Everything about our 4 day vacation was perfect. The house is beautiful. There are tastefully chosen photographs & paintings in the bedroom, locally produced soaps in the bathroom, very comfortable beds with knitted blankets. The breakfast in the morning is sumptuous & delicious. Dennis does the cooking while Anne sees to it that... More

A group of seven stayed over a weekend while we were undertaking a walking challenge. Our hosts were very welcoming and although we were up too early for breakfast one day were more than helpful in letting us put our packed lunches in the kitchen fridge. The rooms were comfortable and did what we needed (to sleep). Would come back... More

It is difficult to fault our stay. Ann & Dennisu made us feel very welcome & very helpful with advice on things to do & see. The excellent cooked breakfasts were tailored to our wishes. The en suite rooms were comfortable and we slept well. The only extra we would have liked was a common lounge area where guests could... More

3 of us stayed the weekend of the Keswick Mountain Festival as we were all taking part. Anne and Dennis couldn't have been more accomodating of a ridiculously early start one day and so helpful all weekend. The rooms were very clean and breakfast was just fabulous!

I have just returned home after staying 2 nights in the Dorchester House. What a beautiful B&B, the room was spacious, everything was pristine and of a very high standard. The shower ensuite was extremely clean and again of a very good size. The owners were friendly, made the effort to know our names and use them especially during breakfast.... More

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
