We could not have made a better choice. The property is impeccably maintained and is in a great location in a quant town. Also, right next to a great park and all of the lake activities. The rooms (we had 3 for our group of 6) were spacious, comfortable and well-appointed. The staff was excellent-very eager to make our stay... More

Have stayed here several times now, it has been outstanding every time, renovated rooms are great, Nicholas and the staff are excellent, and the food is outstanding! One of the best steaks I have ever had, from starters to dessert, the food is tremendous! Really wouldn't want to stay anywhere else.

This hotel is ideal for a three or four day break and is close to everything in Keswick - the staff are friendly - the food is five star and the rooms are a little bit of luxury. There are two rooms on the ground floor but no lift. Wifi is great.

We booked the Highfield at the last minute when we decided to take an overnighter in the Lakes District. The first pleasant surprise was the hotel's private car park at the back - a welcome treat after driving for hours through skinny, overcrowded streets with no parking! The hotel is a compact but lovely restoration of Victorian era architecture nestled... More

We had a great stay at the Highfields. They have their own private car park, the reception was very friendly, and our room was clean, comfortable, had good amenities and a great view of the hills. We stayed in for the four course dinner, the food prepared to a very high standard – I would recommend the smoked haddock. Breakfast... More

On 11th & 12tth August I stayed in this hotel with my son for a walking holiday break. On our arrival we were greeted by a very friendly receptionist and taken to our respective rooms. I was very impressed by how clean and well presented the room was, although the room was situated on the third floor this was not... More

Returned again to the Highfield. Although Nick and his wife have moved on the same standards are being set by the management team. Excellent service and food within walking distance of Keswick market square, the lake and the Theatre. Highly recommended.

In town for the Convention, we chose to stay half-board at the Highfield (rather than at our normal B&B), having enjoyed an excellent dinner there in 2014. We booked the unusual and amazing Woodford room, and were most impressed by its size and comfort - more like a suite - with its huge bathroom, 6-foot bed and comfortable raised seating... More
