This small and chic guest house is right in the heart of Keswick. Everything about it has been carefully thought out to give guests the most enjoyable and relaxing. Carol and Ged are really lovely, friendly hosts and make you feel very welcome with home baking treats in the room and good conversation. The rooms are spacious, well kitted out... More

My teenage daughter and I recently stayed at Honister House, and I can't say how wonderful both the place itself but also hosts Carol and Ged are. At Honister House, you get the best of a boutique hotel - really great beds, modern bathrooms, luxury linens and towels - with the best of a bed and breakfast - excellent breakfasts,... More

Fantastic location in the centre of Keswick, small guest house with the personal touch and friendly hosts. Super breakfasts. Would highly recommend. Can't wait to visit again and request the double room with a bath.

We stayed three nights in early July. I have the same problem that other reviewers have in that you cannot express easily just how first-class Honister House is. Everything is as good as it could be from the lovely comfortable room to the excellent breakfasts. The location is perfect. The home made cakes are amazing. But what really makes Honster... More

This was our fourth stay at Carol and Ged’s wonderful Honister House. It’s difficult to find new superlatives to heap their way. The tasty treats left in the bedrooms and the breakfasts are delicious. Since our last stay there has been the thoughtful addition of a fridge (with fresh milk) in the dinning room for the use of guests. The... More

I've just got back from a little weekend away in Keswick with my fiancé and I couldn't have found a better B&B to stay in. Honister House is just perfect in every way. It's in the perfect location and right near the car park! Honister House provided us with a permit so that the parking saved us £5 a day!... More

I had pretty high expectations after reading the reviews but our stay in Honister house was even more enjoyabe than I expected, starting with the first seconds Ged welcomed me at the doorstep, already knowing my name. Our room was cosy and immaculate and there was everything we needed plus much more. I didn't think I might need a hot... More

We spent 2 lovely nights at Honister House and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Everything was simply superb: - Location - Right by the Central Carpark, Town Centre, Cinema, Bistros, Pubs... yet right on the edge of all the hustle and bustle; a really well located sanctuary. - Room (the bed, the sofa and indie-hipster decor) - En-Suite bathroom with rain shower...
