I asked if we seat ourselves to then be taken around the corner, we couldn't see anyone they couldn't see us. We... More

We stayed in Keswick just before Christmas as a treat and I managed to get us a deal on the price of the room. As such I wasn't expecting it to be very exciting but I was pleasantly surprised throughout our stay. The room was really well-appointed with lovely thick, satiny cotton bedsheets, lots of local tourist information, beautiful fluffy... More

(They do provide earplugs). That being said, it's warm, cosy and all the staff are very friendly. The food is good... More
