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

While we were really happy with the location of this hotel––the footpath to Derwent Water is just outside the door--we found ourselves a little disappointed with a few things. The staff were ill-informed and couldn't explain anything with much certainty, even in areas of import like parking (you'll need to use the public lot out back and it costs £11... More

This review is a bit of a mystery to us. In response... We are not a hotel but a Cafe Bar with rooms. We do have a public car park to the rear – as does plenty of other guest accommodation in the area but all staff are well rehearsed on information with regards to this and we always direct... More

Stayed here for one night with my son while we walked the Cumbria Way. The rooms are situated above the tapas bar in the centre of Keswick. The room was well equipped and clean, while the modern bathroom was spotless. We ate in the bar downstairs and enjoyed a delicious tapas. The breakfast choice was extensive and we were made... More

was very late in booking for the Keswick convention but this place came up on booking.com. Wasn't sure but it was very reasonable bed and breakfast charges so myself and a friend booked a twin room for one night. Staff were very friendly and the room was lovely. Spotlessly clean, modern bathroom with excellent shower, light and bright room with... More
