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

We stayed at Dolly Waggon on 4th May 2015. We were greeted by Amanda & Scott on arrival and shown to our room. The views of the fells from our window were amazing. Cannot name one fault with the guest house. Very spacious, comfy room. Breakfast was lovely & very filling. Great value for money - look forward to visiting... More

Great location only a couple minutes walk from town centre, clean spacious room - and we got room 4 with an amazing view, fresh cakes in the room, welcoming hosts, delicious breakfast with a choice between full English (and all variations) and a daily special. Breakfast doesn't start until 8.15am so we missed it on the second morning as we... More
