We had a great stay in December the room was very clean, and comfortably, the only downer was this room faced the alleyway down to the nightclub and sports bar so we had noise in the wee dark hours..... On the other hand the hotel is friendly and comfortable and the food was excellent, plus a very good breakfast all... More

We arrived on a Saturday when the market was in full swing. You park at the rear of the hotel and are given a permit. It's about a 50-60 metre walk depending where you get a space. The hotel is clean, tidy and food good. The staff were ok,although they are very clinical and don't attempt to make any conversation.... More

It is the first time we have stayed in the Kings Arms & we weren't disappointed. There was a lovely welcome when we checked in and our room was really comfy and surprisingly quite spacious ( room 10). Dinner in the restaurant at night was really tasty & plentiful and it was lovely to sit in the cosy bar afterwards.... More

Arrived 2nd December in desperation as our usual destination was unexpectedly closed. Headed for Main Street in Keswick as we knew there were many hotels in the area. At 9pm we were delighted to be able to book in for a couple of nights. Our room was on the top floor at the end of a steep staircase. Very acceptable... More

As we had just done some major shopping in the town and the outdoor market we wanted a drink to accompany a deserved seat in this typical pub , country style decor and busier than normal due to the pre Christmas buyers.

We have stayed in Keswick on many occasions and never been disappointed. This last stay with our Labrador was just fabulous. We booked two nights for my husbands birthday and had a lovely time. The manager was very helpful from start to finish. We arrived earlier than the stated 3pm check-in which was not a problem. We were given the... More

We dropped by here for a drink in August, when we were in Keswick.The pub had a rather cosy feel to it, but staff need to be more welcoming and sensitive to a diverse clientele, to do the place justice.We didn't feel inspired to either stay long or have dinner there.
