So... We had dinner there with my husband last week as the menu was appetising and being vegetarian the "vegetable stack" seemed interesting, but I was very disappointed when my food arrived... I can't say that they lied by saying "veg stack" as it was exactly that, but I was disappointed in the flavours (no herbs or anything like that... More

A large group of us stayed for a variety of nights at the hotel to celebrate my wife's birthday. The staff were excellent, the birthday gift of chocolates was very thoughtful. We had two excellent evening meals there, one in the pizzeria, the other in the main restaurant and breakfasts were very good too. Our daughter and her fiance brought... More

We stayed here for one night with our little dog the staff were very welcoming and were totally dog friendly. While we were checking in one of the bar staff came over and made a fuss of him with treats. Lovely! The hotel is in the centre of town I would class it more as an inn which is what... More

Having been enticed by the food menu on the wall outside my wife and I decided on the Kings Arms for lunch. We took our seats and ordered at the bar and then waited patiently for 30-40 minutes for our food to finally arrive telling ourselves that the long wait meant freshly cooked and therefore good food. My meal was... More

The rooms were exceptional and I loved the tartan decor and the instant heated shower!! The rooms were cleaned to the highest standard and dog owners were welcome in most areas, we ate... More

Its been 2 years since I last stayed at the Kings Arms and at the time I rated it adequate. Now I've just returned from a 2 night stay and I would now rate it as excellent. The bar and lounge areas remain the same (and good they are too) but the restaurant has undergone a facelift and what a... More

Two comfortable nights spent at the Kings Arms in Keswick. The staff were very friendly. Room was clean. Location and parking excellent. The shower was a little small although I am over 6'3 so probably not an issue for most people. Beware the hotel is located right in the centre of the town so it can be quite loud on... More

So beautifully decorated with friendly non-intrusive staff in all areas of the hotel. They couldn't do enough for you if you needed them to and even counted the steps to my room after moving me downstairs as I have trouble moving about. They helped with my bags and everything. Warm welcome in the morning to an amazing breakfast. The bar... More

We stayed here for a night just before Easter passing through Keswick on our way back to Scotland. We checked prices on Internet which were higher than the stand by walk in rate so worth doing both. Receptionist gave us the keys to 2 rooms for us to inspect. Both equally immaculate but one had slightly better view that we... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Newly refurbished AA 3 star Hotel right in the centre of Keswick, the Lake District. In the 17th century, Keswick was the crossroads for many of the horse and carriage routes which traversed this part of the English Lake District. The Kings Arms Hotel, a true Coaching Inn of that period, offers the traveller of today the same unrivaled hospitality and friendly service in keeping with its heritage. To stay at the Kings Arms Hotel in Keswick is to experience the legacies, in modern day comfort and luxury, of a true Coaching Inn. A warm and friendly smile awaits you from our well trained staff, whose aim is to make your stay one of many. The air-conditioned, newly refurbished restaurant serves appetising home-cooked dishes such as slow-cooked local lamb joints and the almost-famous spare ribs, beef & Jennings ale pie, delicious hand-cut, home-cooked chips plus mouth-watering hot and cold desserts. After a hearty meal, why not relax in front of the open fire with a drink in the newly-refurbished, cosy oak-beamed bar and watch the world go by outside on the streets of Keswick. With over 40 whisky's and some of the best local ales on tap the choice is yours. Or in the summer months take a seat in the charming courtyard, which is the perfect place to enjoy delicious food and a refreshing drink al fresco. There are 13 recently refurbished bedrooms all with their own shower rooms. ... more   less
