Absolutely perfect hosts! We got tips for hikes and walks around the area, on restaurants and what else to do. Especially when it comes to hiking trips Ged was a perfect advisor (although I think he overestimated me a little :-) ) Nice little rooms with everything you need including brilliant tea and coffee making facilities, Wifi, good TV ......

There are B&Bs and there are B&Bs, Honister House is no ordinary B&B. Stay, you won't be disappointed. From the lovely comfortable rooms, to the tasty varied breakfast menu and the wonderful home baking everything is just as you would want it to be. Carol and GED are warm and welcoming hosts and, in short, it's a joy to stay... More

Our first visit to the lake district, and so glad we chose Keswick and Honister House. The location is perfect - seconds away from the lake, the shops and restaurants, and the start of some great walks. Ged and Carol were brilliant hosts, creating a welcoming but relaxed and laid back atmosphere, perfect for a holiday. Breakfast was always a... More

Me and my husband stayed at Honister House quite a few months back.....May (I think)...one of the bank holidays. Anyway, we could not pass up on writing a review for this fantastic B & B. We don't usually write reviews on here unless the quality of the service deserves it.........or it's totally appalling! HOWEVER!!! Our stay at Honister House was... More

Just over half way through our cycle from Land's End to John O'Groats, it was a pleasure to stay at Honister House. Ged & Carol were the perfect hosts, even drying our wet clothes for us. Excellent hospitality, rooms (including a welcome hot bath), meals and conversation. Of all the places we stayed on our 14 day adventure, this was... More

As this was our third visit to Honister House it would be reasonable to say that we are very happy with the facilities or we would not have gone back. One of the reasons were always happy to return was the warm welcome John always provided. However on our last visit we found that Honister House had changed hands but... More

We really enjoyed our 4 night stay at Honister House, clean rooms, great breakfast cooked to order (& packed lunches) and lovely hosts who did everything they could to make sure we had everything we needed. The location of this B&B is ideal, right in the centre of town opposite George Fisher. Thank you for accommodating our family and we... More

Having stayed here a few times before we returned due to the perfect location in the heart of Keswick - in less that 30 seconds you can walk into town, and 5 minutes wander to the Lake. New owners Carol and Ged were great hosts while allowing ourselves and two teenage chaps the opportunity to relax and unwind for a... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Honister House has a great unique location in the heart of Keswick: in a quiet spot, but very close to the charming Market Square, the 100-year-old Cinema, the Theatre and Derwent Water lake. As we only have three guest rooms, we can cook your breakfast to order. We have lots of options and use high quality produce. We're happy to cater for special dietary needs. Our hospitality trays include filter coffee, a wide range of teas, and home-baked treats. ... more   less
