I've only remembered to place this review as we are booking to stay again this winter. Ged and Carol had only recently taken over the hotel when we stayed, but there was nothing new or amateurish in how the hotel was run or how we felt about it when there. We had a lovely evening, as the only guests there... More

Very comfortable, friendly B+B. Nice, clean room and bathroom and comfortable beds. The B+B is in a great location - right on the edge of the centre of town yet fairly quiet. Nice touch of providing home made cakes/biscuits in the room each day. Breakfasts were excellent. Would definitely stay here again when next in Keswick.

Really enjoyed my stay in Honister House this year. Ged and Carol run the place with charm and efficiency that just makes you feel special. Its spotlessly clean and tidy and the beds in Blencathra properly comfy. The place is so well located in the small town with a 5 min gentle stroll down to Derwentwater, 2 mins into town... More

Clean, tidy and excellent breakfasts, the perfect location for the town, but still quiet, easy to park... I stayed here with my brother for three nights on the way up to Scotland. We couldn't have asked for more in terms of somewhere to stay, and to top it all off, our hosts, Carol and Ged were awesome. Their warm and... More

I booked this based on the excellent reviews but they don't fully do this place justice. Ged and Carol are perfect hosts from meeting us in the car park with our parking permit to getting to know us and making us feel so welcome. The rooms are impeccable - spotlessly clean, comfy beds and every little personal touch imaginable which... More

Honister House is excellently located on the edge of the town centre and only five minutes walk from the lake. Ged and Carol were very welcoming hosts, and the room was spotlessly clean, bit small but adequate for a short stay. There was only one shared table for breakfast however we would have personally preferred separate tables. We would stay... More

This is the second time that we have stayed at Honister House, but the first time under Ged and Carol's management. And what management! Not only are there all the facilities that you would hope for, such as well placed bins and excellent breakfasts, but it's all the little personal touches that made it for us. The toiletries are a...

We spent three nights with Carol & Ged at Honnister House recently and loved it. They were so friendly and accommodating. Their home is immaculate and their breakfasts, delicious! It had not been my first choice when looking for a place to stay in Keswick, but it is now our favorite!

Having just returned from a visit to Honister house I would definitely recommend it as an excellent place to stay! The hosts Carol and Gled were impeccable and make us feel welcome during our stay and were very helpful. Our double room was delightful with facilitates to make your own tea/coffee and home made cookies/cakes. Could not fault!

At Honister House we found every bit the sublime and delightful English countryside/Cumbria experience we were hoping for and actually much more. Along with my wife and some friends we ended up taking all of the three rooms here and were treated like family by Carol and Ged, who are impeccable hosts. Upon arrival, I was bowled over to find...
