Lovely little find above a nice wine bar that serves breakfast lunch and dinner. Great location. car park behind is free 7pm till 8am, though we found free start parking around the corner. Short walk to Derwent water. Very handy for restaurants and bars. We ate at a Mexican Tapas nearby. Breakfast in morning was lovely Eggs Royale

We stayed in room 4 for two nights late Nov 2014, no central heating on (small electric heater in room with high ceilings) covered in cobwebs, single glazed windows, rock hard mattress, flat pillows x2 (I put the cushion off the chair...

We have been to the cafe bar many times over the past few years, but have never stayed overnight before. We were not at all disappointed. The room was clean and perfectly acceptable, the food (as we already knew) was excellent and the staff were absolutely wonderful. If you are looking for a hotel experience with flunkies in uniform then... More

Sis recommended this place as she had visited before for a drink. Although the bar area is very nice our room (room No.1) was tiny! Had to plug the electric heater in as the radiator didn't work. There was water left in the kettle, we stayed for 2 nights but the bottles of water and sachets of shower gel weren't... More

We live in Whitehaven and have been a regular visitor to Keswick over the years. We have walked past Cafe Bar26 more times than I care to remember without actually ever going in (don't know why?). We were at a concert on Sunday night and we booked to stay here on a recommendation from friend's. The service, the ambience of... More

We've stayed here a few times now and returned a couple of days ago for one night. Great location for the theatre. Rooms always clean, comfortable and modern. Really good breakfasts with very good coffee. The staff are friendly. We've never had any problems with parking. We did find the music on Weds night incredibly loud.....could sing along word for...

Booked two nights B&B for a walking break with my father. Cafe Bar 26 is primarily a bistro bar in central Keswick with a lively atmosphere and in our opinion one of the best places in town to call for a bite to eat and/or a drink. However it also has a few rooms offering B&B. Our twin was compact... More

don't know where Shelly D is from,or what she expects, but we have used cafe bar 26 for the last 10 years, both for accomodation and food, and have not had a single problem with either, hence the comments in the other reviews. Keswick is a very tight sometimes congested town, so there are bound to be issues with parking.... More
