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

We stayed a week at the Guest House and had a wonderful time there. Its location is great, only 2 mins to the centre of Keswick and a short walk to the Lake. Off street parking was a real bonus. The room was fantastic, very clean and comfortable. The en suite was newly renovated and very modern. There is also... More

Last year we spent a week at this Guest House and enjoyed a really positive experience - so we booked again for this year. We have just returned home and can happily say that it met our high expectations and more. Paul and Jodie are superb hosts and everything was exceedingly good. Our room was immaculate with modern facilities. Breakfast... More

The Strathmore has a great location being only 5 minutes walk from Keswick's main square and 10 minutes to the lake. This meant that having parked in the rear car park (or on the road outside if lucky) you can enjoy a lot of what Keswick, the Derwent or the local walks have to offer on foot. We stayed in... More

Have just returned from a 2 night stay at this lovely B&B. The owner couldn't have been more helpful - he even went out of his way to help us with parking (in case you didn't know, Keswick is a bit of a nightmare for parking). We had the deluxe room on the first floor. It was large and comfortable,... More

Once again we, as a party of 11 family and friends, had a wonderful stay over the Bank Holiday week-end. Paul and Jodie, and their lovely children, made us feel very much at home. It must be quite daunting to have our "lively" party in every year but Paul seemed to cope with us well! We couldn`t fault anything, food,... More

Best breakfast I've ever had (better than 5* hotels I've stayed at), great poached eggs and lovely thick bacon which actually was the smell that woke us up just in time for breakfast! We stayed in room 2 (the deluxe) and it was perfect for us with the sofa for me to relax on whilst my girlfriend pottered around getting... More

Stayed here for 3 nights with partner and 2 friends. Great location with easy walk into Keswick town where there are plenty of places to eat. Breakfast was lovely and cooked fresh by the owners who were both very friendly and hospitable. The room had a good comfy double bed with en suite facilities, which looked recently decorated with a... More
