Stayed here for one night while visiting the area and we were greeted by Amanda who made us feel at home. She even made us a cuppa tea when we arrived which we enjoyed with a cupcake each that she had baked for us. The room was very nice, nice view of the mountain from our window and it's a... More

I thought we'd found the best Guest House in Keswick the last time we visited in March this year (Beckside - see my previous reviews) but the Dolly Waggon (DW) certainly gives it a run for its money. From the moment we arrived Amanda and Ross were welcoming even offering to move their car to allow us to park up... More

Truely a wonderful B&B , Amanda greats you on arrival and really couldn't be more helpful nothing is too much trouble! She spoils you with an optional, different special for breakfast each morning .Exceptionally clean room set in the perfect location I would definitely stay here again I wouldn't look anywhere else as this really has it all.

Very good place to stay. Parking can be tight, but we always found a spot. It's a short walk into the center of town. The room was nice and clean. Stayed three days. Did laundry right across the street. We would stay there again.

Very welcoming owners who could not do enough to help us enjoy our stay. Excellent full English breakfast, comfortable bed, and short walk from Keswick town centre were the key positives. The packed lunch they prepared for us (£5 each) contained delicious filled rolls. The only slight negative was it took us a short while to find a car parking... More

Superb guest house, friendly hosts. Clean, bright, ensuite room, homemade cupcakes with tea and coffee facilities, and overlooking the mountains. Steps away from Keswick town centre, with its dog friendly pubs and outdoor clothing stores. Breakfast, one of the best I've had at a guest house. Generous, freshly made cooked brekkie with veggie sausages, and great homemade bread. Stayed last... More

This guest house is in a great location. We have stayed here 3 times...each time in a different room. All rooms were comfortable, clean, tea and coffee making facilities with fresh cakes too! Amanda and Ross always make us welcome, giving a family atmosphere to the place. We stayed in Room 1 and had no problems with noise. Previously we... More

Great location for Keswick with the town-centre within easy walking distance. Pleasant rooms with some quirky features in the bathrooms. We were not a fan of the ground floor room as it was too noisy, even though guests were considerate. Rooms 4 & 5 gave superb views of Skiddaw. Delicious large breakfasts with caring hosts. Excellent base for walking or... More
