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

My sister and brother-in-law won a meal here after "competing" in a cricket-ball bowling event with Keswick Cricket Club one very warm summer's day (they are not so frequent here!). Our meal in the comfortable restaurant of the Kings Arms Hotel was lovely - and we enjoyed different "takes" on food you could otherwise encounter everywhere. We all had different... More

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

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
