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.

A party of 11 of us stayed at The Dorchester for the beer festival weekend and Anne and Dennis were excellent hosts. Made to feel really welcome, fantastic breakfast and rooms absolutely spotless. Would not hesitate to stay here again.

Our stay here in May was brief but the owners made us very welcome. The room though small had all the facilities needed. The home made jams and fresh fruit salad at breakfast were a highlight. On road parking available.
