As the Lake district was to be our last stop off before returning home on a motorcycle tour of the Derby-shire dales, Yorkshire and the lake district we decided to make a return stay at Portland house.

I stayed here with my partner in August and had a fantastic experience at Portland House. We stayed for two nights and would highly recommend this B&B to all. Its location is great as it is only a few minutes walk from the centre of Keswick but is situated so it makes it easy to walk or drive straight out... More

My wife and I stayed at this B&B for two nights. It was a lovely stay, and we could not fault the B&B and the hosts at all. The room was much more spacious than we had anticipated, and the owners had taken care to supply everything that we could have needed. Breakfast was great, and there were a wide... More

Warm and friendly atmosphere, immaculate accommodation and delicious breakfast. Extremely helpful and thoughtful people. Situated in a quiet street; very close to town centre and ideal for shopping and outdoor activities.

Came here again - this time with my husband. Had such a lovely stay. Not a surprise as last time was lovely too. Stayed in two different rooms - so have stayed in 3 now. All have been spotless with personal touches. No detail missed. Can't recommend this place enough.

We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us - thanks for posting this review! The shower in your room is certainly getting a lot of positive comments - our ground floor room has the largest en-suite so was able to have a full walk-in shower.

My partner and I thought P H was great - peaceful, clean, friendly, great breakfast.. so often I've been to B& Bs and thought that with a little thought they could be massively improved, but I couldn't find fault. Especially appreciated the proper mugs for the bedroom!!

My wife and I have been regular visitors to the Lake District for many years and have stayed at numerous B&B's in the area. We first stayed at the Portland in Sept 2009, just as Rod & Denise took occupancy. Since then we have never considered staying anywhere else. Rod & Denise always treat you as friends, not just guests.... More
