We stayed at this hotel on Easter Sunday. Keswick was very busy and it was beautifully sunny and hot. We wanted a lovely night's stay in a cosy and homely hotel in the centre of town- close to pubs! That is exactly what we got. I must say that my boyfriend proposed to me by the lake just hours before... More

Arrived late after cancelling a booking elsewhere and got the last available room. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was clean tidy and very well appointed. As a regular visitor to Keswick I cannot fault anything from the service to the great central location. Will definitely be returning...

We decided to take our collie for a weekend break in the lakes, and Keswick was recommended to us as a great town that accommodates/accepts dogs in hotels, cafes, bars and shops. It sounded great and we were not disappointed. We choose the Kings Arms Hotel as it was right in the centre of everything. It has a nice welcoming... More

Decent hotel. Good rooms, nice atmosphere friendly staff. All around, a nice place. We stayed here for a hiking trip. Liked the room, accommodated our request for a trundle bed at the last minute. Nice atmosphere in the pub with a good selection of food and beer. Very central location too.

Came for a dinner, the menu is good and quite varied. Service was excellent but the best part was the food which was tasty, well presented and provided excellent value for money. Will return again very soon.

We arrived early for an early dinner. They wanted us out in 2 hours, it took almost that for 3 courses. I had the belly pork, it was alright, no it was good for pubfood, my food had sat on the pass for sometie because the micro herbs had all wilted. Sticky toffee pudding was epic. The place does have... More

Ate here on our first night in Keswick and agreed that if this was the standard of fayre for the week we'd be pretty happy. Food was good and the company was also pleasant with a good atmosphere and people happy to chat.
