I stayed here recently on a Wednesday night, the room we were given was large, bright and clean, the bathroom was not huge though it was immaculately clean and decorated in a contemporary style. Every staff member we came into contact with was friendly and helpful and the breakfast service was quick and efficient. For the price we were charged... More

stayed overnight in room 4. Lovely room with all the usual amenities. Clean and well appointed. Superb breakfast with plenty of choice.. I found the bed a little hard but that's being picky and down to personal choice.

Disappointing - waited 50 minutes to find our order was incorrect and the portions were rather small. The service was unpleasant with several uncomfortable comments made about what we had ordered and what they served us - nice food but not worth the wait or service we were provided!

A great centrally located hotel in Keswick. Walm welcome, spotlessly clean room with modern facilities and tea and coffee in the room. A good choice of breakfast items which you can customise for your needs.

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

A bit like other reviews really, nice place to stay but, same old niggles keep rearing their heads. 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
