Stayed for two nights and we're very happy. Paul is a real friendly host and will make sure you've got everything you need. The breakfast was excellent and there is everything you could want. The location is excellent and has parking. We wouldn't hesitate to stay again. Thank you Paul and family.

I stayed three nights in summer 2014. My room looked out the back to the mountains. To the front would be the church. I didn't hear the church bells at all, which was one thing I was worried about as I am not a good sleeper. I slept very well, the bed was very comfortable. It was very friendly, the... More

Just your standard bed and breakfast nothing to shout about but nothing much wrong with it either small but comfy room your only going to sleep there anyway. Good breakfast no common rooms with tv and no bar. Plenty of good bars in town.

There are so many choices of places to stay in Keswick that choosing one can become a bit overwhelming. Well fear not, if you're looking for somewhere that's reasonably priced, has car parking, a friendly welcome, comfortable rooms with good water pressure in the shower (I hate those water savers where the water dribbles out) and the bonus of being...

As frequent visitors to the Lake District to pursue our love of walking my wife and I decided to "push the boat out" and spend a weekend in Keswick. After browsing through the many Bed and Breakfast options we finally decided on the Strathmore Guest House! What a smart move that was. On arrival we were met by Paul (the... More

My partner and I spent two nights at Strathmore guest house and we loved it. Paul was very friendly and helpful and cooked a fantastic breakfast each morning. The guest house was clean and very comfortable and the room was lovely. The location is great and Keswick itself is beautiful. To top off a great short break, my partner proposed... More

We have just returned from a short break in Keswick. This guest house is fab! From the moment Paul greeted us to the time we left, we felt very welcomed and looked after. Nothing seemed too much trouble. We had a twin room that was well kept, clean and very comfortable with a lovely sized bathroom. There is parking at... More

We stayed here for 5 nights in May this year. Was oner of the best B&B's we have stayed in. We had the bigger de luxe room which was very spacious and had a nice couch and lounge area. Breakfasts were terrific. Paul, the owner was so helpful and friendly. Parking at the back a definite plus. A great place... More

This is the second time I have stayed at Strathmore Guest House. It is difficult to find a guest house in Keswick with a single en suite room and a parking space, and Strathmore provides it. The room itself is bright and clean with a lovely view. There is a lovely selection of fresh fruit and cereals for breakfast. I... More
