The hotel/pub was right in the middle of Keswick. Thought it might be noisy but no problems. Our room looked over Main Street but the curtains were very thick to keep any lights out. Room and bathroom were very good - well decorated and with everything we needed including bath robes. All staff good. We had dinner, b & b,... More

Stayed Friday and Saturday on the Managers Special DBB Rate. The hotel is ideally situated in the town centre, could be noisy at night. Rooms very clean and newly decorated. Staff very friendly and attended all our needs. Meal on the first night was excellent as my partner is Celiac the waitress and Chef attended her every need, the same... More

The staff here are very welcoming and love to chat all things dog with you! The room was very nice and the bathroom looked brand new. There was a strange humming sound in the bathroom (not the vent fan) but I couldn't really hear it at night. The room was also extremely hot and I found this difficult to sleep... More

The Kings Arms is well placed in the centre of Keswick. Our walking group was booked in as part of our Cumbria Way walk. The rooms are pleasant, the location is convenient although the revels in town on a Friday night take place right outside the hotel. The big disappointment was the attitude of staff which was cool and with... More

We stayed here on a Saturday night, b&b after a long walk in the fells. We were in room 6 on the top floor at the front. The room was beautiful, very well furbished. Bath robes, 3D TV,DAB Radio, tea and coffee making facilities. The toiletries were good quality and in good quantities too. The bed was huge and very... More

Nice hotel and a central location. You get a parking voucher for the Central parking park lot. This is important. Room we had was small and at the back but if you get a room in the front wear ear plugs as very rowdy. Food is good but the bar smells constantly of fish pie.

Dear Colin It’s great to hear that you found our hotel nice and central. I believe that during your stay we had fish pie as a special; therefore I can assure you that our bar does not constantly smell like fish. We ensure that our hotel is cleaned and decorated to a very high standard, to offer an enjoyable and... More

Great pub centrally located. The rooms are a little dated and tight in places, but perfectly fine for a few nights away. Competition for B&B is huge in Keswick and the standards and prices vary greatly, we have stayed here each year before the beer festival for the last couple of years and the rooms and breakfast are fine. The... More

We stayed here for one night on 9th May. As there was only one empty room in the main hotel we were very happy to be taken over to the new barn conversion.. The rooms were spacious and well equipt having only just been refurbished. We spent the night in the hotel resturant and bar. The food was not gastronomic... More
