Good location and very clean. Good bed also. We were hassled about a refund, and they have no refund policy on their website. The location was good, no help provided with parking, but they have limited spots in back, off of the street. Hosts were not overly friendly.

Very briefly we will give our version of events. Two American couples booked a 2 night stay for 2 rooms ( worth £340 ) with us in March for a stay in June. The night before they were due to stay with us we got a phone call to say they would only require the second night, bear in mind... More

We stayed three nights in Ellergill. Robin and Clare were great hosts, The room was comfortable, clean and well appointed. Our cooked breakfasts each morning were very tasty , with enough to keep us going for long walks around the lake. Ellergil is only one minute from main St, perfect position close to pubs and restaurants

We stayed in room 3 which was incredibly clean, comfy bed and had a wonderful sleep, no noise disruptions at all. The breakfast is fantastic, try the scrambled egg! The location is perfect, short walk to the lake, and even shorter walk to the Main Street where there are some lovely pubs and places to eat. Robin and Clare are... More

Perfect - top of the high street so near to the town but very quiet, clean room with a nice bathroom and good shower, lovely breakfast and very friendly hosts. Also just a short walk from a rural area. Would definitely stay here again.

We have just had a very cosy weekend in keswick staying at the Ellergill Guest House on Stanger Street. We normally choose this part of Keswick because after a long day in the fells, Stanger Street is ideally situated for the town centre and is quiet at night. We stayed on a Saturday and Sunday night with a last minute... More

A little delayed in writing this review but feel that Ellergill Guest House still deserves recognition. As a first timer to the Lakes, I had no idea on where to stay but I could not have asked for better. We stayed in Room 1, which was spacious, clean, comfortable, decorated lovely and had a wonderfully large and comfortable bed. The... More

Stayed here on many occasions and it never fails to impress. The owners Robin and Clare know how to be attentive but not intrusive,which can be rare in B&Bs. Wonderful breakfasts that are pure quality and don't leave you to full to walk. We enjoy are stays here more and more every time we come,and hope it never changes.

I have just returned from Ellergill. The room was absolutely spotless and beautifully furnished. Clare and Robin are lovely, friendly and helpful. The location is excellent. You really could not expect anything more from a B and B.
