We stayed here at Easter but this was not our first time as we love this hotel. The location is ideal for car parking, bus services, town centre and for walks from the door. Our room was very clean and the toiletries and hospitality items were all of good quality and plentiful to our needs but the staff have been... More

We've been to Skiddaw Hotel many times, we spent this Easter there and we always find the reception staff very friendly - polite and helpful and also the waiting on staff even when they are very busy, the food is very good and plenty of it - we always book half board. I always find the rooms are spotless and... More

Old fashioned dated design looks like a dark lit pub. Very tight on biscult and refreshment in the room. Staff actually refused to give us any more biscults and hot choc for the children despite a family of 4. Staff were nice to talk, but unhelpful meeting your needs. Good location, but there are lots of other places for similar... More

Came up from flat Norfolk with a coach party. Speedy and friendly greeting and suitcase delivery. I actually said 'wow' as I entered my room. Very slightly too much air freshener for my liking, but not overpowering.FOOD: good on the whole; would have preferred much more vegetables, but everyone else seemed content. Portion size a little erratic; chicken breast was... More

As it was Easter Monday decided to go to Keswick for lunch and thought we would try the Siddaw Hotel and went to the lounge bar. The service was very slow and haphazard, in fact three sets of people can in after us and were served before we were! The waiters were fine and polite but the bar staff left... More

Ate at the conservatory on a quiet Sunday night. Since no staff appeared to take my order, I placed it at the Bar. Food selection was poor and overpriced. Choice was not taxing, only a cold seafood selection and pie and mash. After waiting on the food for an hour was astounded to be told that the order was being... More

Minor gripe was the courses were a bit rushed.Although we didn't ask for a rest between courses. Breakfast was very good, the full Cumbrian was one of the best "full" breakfasts I have ever... More

Anyway , after a nice look around Keswick and a lovely meal in a nearby pub we decided to retire for the... More

My wife and I along with our Daughter visited the Skiddaw Hotel for 2nights. We were allocated rooms 14 and number 2, these were both classed as standard rooms. Whilst they have not yet been refurbished they are very clean and reasonably furnished, room 14 was without doubt the better room, it was of a good size with double aspect... More
