My wife and I stayed at The Winchester in Keswick earlier this month and I can honestly say it is one of the best Guest Houses we have ever stayed at. We were extremely impressed with every aspect of our stay. The place was exceptionally clean and well maintained. Our room was on the front and had great views. Kens... More

We stayed here for two nights just recently. The accommodation was excellent & very clean. It was also central to Keswick. Facilities were great with tv & wifi. The owners were friendly & attentive without being intrusive - just the right level. The breakfast was fantastic - the best we have had from any hotel or b & b. None... More

We have just returned from a really wonderful 3 nights stay at The Winchester in Keswick. Dawn and Ken were superb hosts and could not have been more welcoming and made us feel so at home. Nothing was too much trouble and they were full of good ideas and advice about where to eat out and places to visit etc.... More

Even as we set foot through the door we where put out by the owners attitude, insisting that we took our shoes off at the door, even though we obviously had to go back out to the car for our bags etc and had only walked from the car to the door. Had we been coming back from a walk... More

Stopped here for one night on our way back from Stornoway with my Dad after some family history tracing. Could not fault the servcie provided by Ken and especially Dawn. They are both very friendly and welcoming. Even though I had only chatted on the phone with Dawn a few times, it felt like we had known each other for... More

Ken and Dawn were wonderful hosts, They were very informative and full of advice about things to do and places to go and see and were more than happy to book tables at local restaurants for us.

Just come back from a 3 night stay at The Winchester. Very good value. Ideal location, friendly hosts, nice room and the most fantastic breakfasts! Try Ken's twist on 'egg on toast'! And you won't need lunch after the full English breakfast! Parking is on the streets outside, but there was never a problem finding a space, despite the fact... More

Can't go wrong here. Dawn and Ken are great hosts. Rooms were fresh. Breakfasts were delicious. Our shower went wrong and they immediately upgraded us. They were full of information and very friendly. Only quibble is the front door thing: you have to unlock and relock it, and with gear or luggage, kind of a pain. Other than that, it... More
