Disappointing lunch, my wife snd I had a short rib, it was very fatty and the sauce of red wine and hint of dark chocolate, turned out to be tasting of all chocolate and nothing else. My daughter had a half a duck with a cherry sauce, the sauce was a glaze and nothing else... very dry. The steak and... More

Good location, friendly staff, breakfast was very good and very clean and tidy. However the room was far too small overlooking an "internal" space which housed an industrial sized extraction system for the kitchen. It was very noisy and was switched off at midnight. It was muggy so we left the window open. Bed was comfortable but we were woken... More

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights in August, throughout the duration of our stay all staff were extremely polite and couldn't do enough for us, or our furry companion. We were offered and served breakfast in the bar so the dog could sit with us and he was even given his own sausage, and fussed over much to... More

Whenever I fancy a few days in Keswick the Kings Arms is my hotel of choice. Staff are without exception, polite, friendly and efficient. Bar & restaurant areas are welcoming and comfortable serving well kept beer's & lager's and decent (but not gourmet quality and with a fairly limited menu) meals at reasonable prices with breakfast the best I've had...

Lovely two day break in a fabulous hotel. The room was on the smaller side BUT beautifully decorated and spotless with everything you could possibly need, cannot fault it at all. The staff are very friendly, a warm welcome on arrival and the bar staff were excellent, very friendly and efficient as were the restaurant staff. Thank you! The food... More

We were staying in Keswick for the convention and ate in the restaurant at the King's Arms. Service was very good, the surroundings clean, spacious and pleasant. There was a good selection on the menu and we easily found dishes to suit us. Would definitely eat here again.

Just visited Keswick again for the 40th time in my life ! It's going downhill ! Sorry to say this as the town put a wrinkle on my brain in my youth. Keswick is definitely starting to cater for day trippers , there is little to do after 8 pm , great for families with young children and experienced walkers... More
