Cheesy decor and over-intrusive hosts have often put me off choosing B&B's in the past but Honister House was recommended by a friend and I'm really glad we acted on the tip-off. New owners Ged and Carol seem to have got the balance just right: a genuine, warm welcome, excellent breakfasts catering for all tastes, good local knowledge and interesting... More

We stayed between Christmas & New Year, our 2nd visit to Honister House but now with Carol & Ged the lovely new owners. The place was still immaculate, all linen pristine, the towels fluffy and the breakfast were cooked beautifully. A special mention needs to be made of Carol's gorgeous baking - each a different treat, stem ginger cookies, banana... More

Great b&b in the centre of Keswick, new owners Carol & Ged are really welcoming and made our stay very comfortable. Lovely breakfast and freshly homemade baked treats in our room every day, definitely will be back, thank you :)

I've stayed here twice now and have enjoyed having a quite night in out of the cold talking with the very friendly and accommodating hosts. Both rooms I've stayed in were cosy, comfortable and clean, all of this with the great location in town make an amazing b+b!

Stayed here for one night with a friend during the week in December and couldn't have felt more welcome! Carol and ged made us feel at home straight away along with some wonderful homemade banana loaf. Our room was bright, warm and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was great even for two picky vegans. Would recommend to anyone looking for a central... More

Breakfast was wonderful and tasty. The owners have one big table for breakfast which we dont usually like the idea of but... More

We were have stayed at Honister house very happily over many years and were very relieved that the new owners Carol and Ged (from mid October) are maintaining the very high standards of the previous owners, Susie and John. Our need for interesting vegan breakfast was met enthusiastically, and as ever the rooms are very comfortable and attractive. The vegan... More

Dear Stephen, thank you for taking the time to review us, it's always good to hear that guests enjoyed their stay. We certainly enjoyed having you both stay with us and were very pleased to have passed the vegan taste test. In fact the Vegan Banana Loaf has stayed on the menu and our carnivore guests have been surprised when... More
