A warm welcome, good breakfast and a comfy room with a very nice bathroom. Close to the car park where we were met on arrival and given a hand with our luggage. After a very wet walk they were more than happy to dry all our wet and dirty gear. Homemade cake every day was excellent. We happened to mention... More

Location is ideal, an easy walk to many restaurants, shops. Our room, the smaller Causey Pike, was spotless and comfy, with a generous bath/shower. But the best part - our amazing hosts Ged and Carol. Ged will meet you at the car park and help with bags, etc. Helped us plan hikes/walks and get the most out of our time... More

We were immediately drawn to Honister House because of it's glowing reviews, reasonable pricing and ideal location; situated centrally within Keswick's charming centre, this absolute gem of a B&B offers everything you could possibly need and more. Headed up by the EXCELLENT and personable management team, Carol & Ged, we were spoilt from the very moment we stepped out of... More

Great place, great people, great service. From the booking process through to leaving the experience was excellent. Meeting us in the car park to make sure we could find the place was a really nice touch and many would not even think of it. Nice and comfortable room fitted with lovely homemade cake. Nothing appears to be too much trouble... More

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
