My friend & I stayed Thursday to Sunday in a twin room at the top of the house - what a view! Paul, the owner, seems to do everything including cooking all the breakfasts perfectly. Always cheerful and full of tourist advice he was the perfect host. The room and ensuite were spotlessly clean, lots of hangers, coffee, tea, hot... More

Stayed here for 3 nights from 11-14 June. Having read the reviews, I had high hopes and I wasn't disappointed. We were greeted by the friendly proprietor, Paul, and immediately made to feel very welcome. Our room was on the top floor so we had a few stairs to climb but the view across the rooftops and over the mountains... More

Once again our party of 11 enjoyed a lovely stay at the Strathmore. We thoroughly enjoyed our breakfasts of (for some) full English and for others, fruit, cereal etc., Rooms very clean and well appointed especially Room 2 which is very useful for us all to gather in after we`ve been out to eat every evening. The weather could have... More

Location very near centre of town and an easy walk to the lake. Parking either at the rear of property or if you are lucky right across the road in front of... More

Lovely single ensuite room on 2nd floor. Stayed for 3 nights while performing at Theatre by the Lake. Good veggie sausages, fresh fruit and plenty of cereal choice. Really hood fresh coffee too. Owner is very friendly and helpful, will definitely stay here again if ever I'm back in Keswick

Being a keen walker I've been to Keswick on several occasions and always opt for guest house accommodation. Although I have had no complaints about the others The Strathmore has to rank as one of the best. Set in a convenient (for the town) and quiet location this well run establishment offers comfort, good food (the breakfast was excellent) and... More

From the minute you step into the place, till the time you leave, Paul is there to make you comfortable and give you information about Keswick. The rooms are comfortable, a nice bathroom and a lovely view, mountains with snow, really nice. Breakfast is great, something to look forward to from the minute you are awake. We had never been...
