Although our room is small, it does have a separate ensuite bathroom with a sink located within the room. Deb, our host, made us feel at home and helped us with directions and recommendations. The location of the hotel was ideal for walking into the central business district of Keswick and for walking to the boat that traversed the lake.

This is a guest house we are definitely returning too. Deb and Keith are so welcoming and accommodating, the whole building has nice fresh decor, is as clean as a whistle everywhere. The bathroom in particular was immaculate with all clean and fresh grout and silicone. They added extra little touches that made our stay even more comfortable, fresh bottles... More

Deb and Keith could not have been nicer. Guest house was an easy (5 minute) walk from the bus station located on a quiet street. There is also on-site parking. The room was bright and cosy with an en suite bath. Full English breakfast on day 1 was delicious and Deb packed me a breakfast to go on day 2... More

This guest house is the best one we have EVER stayed at! My husband & I enjoyed it so much when we stayed last year (2014) that we returned this year to repeat what was a very memorable experience. Warmly greeted by Charlotte, daughter of the house, we were shown to our lovely room & a tray with coffee &... More

Warm, friendly and absolutely lovely. Excellent breakfast beautifully presented. Lovely bright room. Deb clearly is a born hostess. Most accommodating when I had to change our plans. A quick walk into town and to the lake with easy access by foot to hiking trails.

Friendly welcome, very helpful hosts. I stayed for a solo walking holiday on a friends recommendation and couldn't have picked better. Spot on location very close to town, clean, comfortable room and absolutely delicious breakfast. Will definitely be back

We stayed at the Dunsford Guest House for four nights 7th September . As the other reviews say the spotless rooms, lovely breakfast and friendliness of Deb and her Daughter make this a first choice if visiting Keswick. Highly Recommend.

We stayed at the Dunsford Guest House for three nights in mid June, 2015. Everything about the stay was terrific - breakfast, room, and the personal care from Deb. If you ask Her for advice about restaurants, walks, or shopping tips, take it. One of our favorite meals during three weeks in the UK was based on her recommendation. We... More

Deb was by far the best host that we had stayed with during our trip. Lots of extras that we didn't see in our other stays. She's pretty much thought of everything. The room was a bit small, but definitely big enough for us and was very nice and clean. There were 2 comfortable chairs and a table to sit... More
