We have withdrawal symptoms if we don't get to visit this hotel each year. The rooms are all beautifully presented and again we had a splendid view across the golf course and down to the lake. Staff are always friendly. Food is superb from the individually presented breakfasts to delicious evening meals - you need to exercise well to earn... More

This really is a superb place . A great location with its own car park which seemed to be a rarity in this part of Keswick. The views over the lake and Hope Park are stunning - drinks on the balcony in the evening with these views are a great way to end the day. Breakfast is excellent - the... More

My friend and I went to this hotel for a short break, the hotel was easy to locate, the welcome warm, professional and homely; our room was beautifully with a fireplace, huge bed, shower and bath facilities. We had dinner in the hotel restaurant after a stroll around Keswick, and the food was sublime, one of the best meals we've... More

I booked this hotel because it had 2 single rooms available. It's a traditional Victorian slate -build lake District hotel; we had comfortable 2nd floor rooms with en-suite. The views from the hotel's elevated position, front and back are fantastic, down Borrrowdale and up to Skiddaw. The reception staff were very helpful. The quality of the food (and the wine... More

Stayed for a couple of nights in April as a birthday treat. I have visited Keswick many times but had never found my way to The Heads, where the hotel is situated, before. Gorgeous situation looking across Derwent Water and into Borrowdale, well seen from both the front garden and our room (no. 17). Worth staying here just for that,... More

We visited Highfields Restaurant for a evening meal on Sunday whilst staying self catering in Keswick. We had used trip advisor to decide on booking The Highfields and were not disappointed. Everything was wonderful, the welcome - we sat in the lounge to choose our food and were bought beautiful canapes to enjoy - which we did! the staff -... More

Lovely views, very helpful and good staff, super position for going to the Jazz Festival and excellent heating. The room was fine but the shower was not up to the standard expected of a small hotel at the price. The shower head did not appear to have been cleaned of sediments that build up and reduce water flow. OK we... More

We stayed in the Highfield Hotel for the period of the Jazz festival, the hotel is very near the main venues and has wonderful views over the lake and mountains. Our room was comfortable, clean and very quiet. The booking included breakfast and offered a very good range of choices which all seemed excellent. We had dinner every night, the... More

Arrived for a weekend with friends, we arrived early so we could make the most of Keswick. The young chap on the reception desk park asked us to park our car in the car park behind the hotel. which was nice of him. Stopped in the room which used to be an old chapel (it's the biggest room I have... More
