We visited as a group if guys on a stag trip. The venue is well located for an easy walk into town. Our room was a little crowded but beds very comfortable. A pillow with a bit more life in it would've been nice. All in all though good for hostel accommodation. I was a little surprised to be told... More

Stayed as part of a large stag group for a weekend. We've endured some grim places before, but this was definitely not one of them. The rooms were a decent size, although needed some more wardrobe facilities. The beds were extremely comfy not just by hostel standards - but by hotel ones. A solid mattress and pillow meant I managed... More

Of all the hostels I've tried in Keswick, Denton is by far the best I've stayed in. What made it such a good stay was that the staff (Mark in particular) were so helpful and kind to all of us making sure that all our needs were met. Facilities are basic, nothing more or less than you need and the... More

Just returned from a couple of nights at Denton House. Was there on my own which felt a bit strange but the staff couldn't have been any more helpful - nothing was too much trouble. Amazingly comfortable bed and good food too!

We booked this place well in advance and my advice is to do the same as there is always something happening in Keswick and the weekends are usually full. The guys that run it are really friendly and make you feel welcome. We didn't need any bedding, sleeping bags or pillows as all were provided on the understanding you stripped... More

Myself and my friend stayed here with 10 Vocational Sports students in mid March. It so happened that we picked a week that the news reported was the coldest week of the year so far! Over our 4 day stay the students (and myself on some activities!) took part in a variety of outdoor activities including rock climbing, abseiling, raft... More

I have brought college groups to Denton House for over 12 years now - as usual the activities undertaken were first class and superb - challenging, exhilarating but extremely safe and well run. Accomodation great for the students and now the breakfast is first class better the some starred hotels and all local fresh produce - well done Mick and... More

We stayed here with a group of 6 and the accoommodation was exactly what we needed. Relatively cheap and cheerful but with great facilities IE: Showers, sitting room and large dining area. The rooms are 'Bunk house' type rooms varying in size but ideal for us with all our kit etc. Plenty of toilets and facilities for mixed groups with... More

Good location just outside the Town centre but an easy 5 minute walk into the centre. The room are very basic but practical and in need of storage and locks on the rooms. As previously mentioned in other reviews leave all possessions in the car. The male showers need up dating. my shower was broken and you couldn't get a... More
