Cafe Bar 26 is always relaxed and chilled. We stayed in room 2 (haven't stayed in any others while it's been Cafe Bar 26) but have seen the others and all are cool, calm and comfortable. Room 2 has a charming window seat which looks out onto Lake Road. Service is friendly and efficient, food is very good and the... More

We decided to stop in Keswick after our trip to Scotland went a bit wrong. We turned up in town looking for a cheap place to stay. We initially rolled up at The Keswick Hotel - a big, tired, stuffy place on the outskirts of town. They told us they wouldn't store our expensive mountain bikes overnight. So using their... More

We stayed for two night and although it was pleasant it did seem expensive for what you got.The big bonus regarding this place is its in the centre. The food is nice, Tapas but there isn't a great choice.

Stayed at Bar 26 for the first time. I have been there many times for drinks and meals. I was extremely impressed with the room and the staff. Both were excellent. The breakfast was equally as good, if not better and the choice was brilliant. Altogether a brilliant place to stay ideally located for the town, Theatre and lake walks.... More

Booked a one night stay at Bar 26, double room with bay window overlooking the street. Upon arrival we were shown to a room at the rear of the property. Clearly not the room we booked. Went back to reception to complain and were offered the room we had booked. This room was OK but there was no bedside table... More

Been coming here for numerous years now and It has been consistantly good if not excellent. Nice clean rooms, good wine, nice beer and a great range of snacks served in a friendly place with a great atmosphere. 10/10 for me.
