Our visit to Keswick was made even more magical by staying with Carol and Ged. We were welcomed by the friendliest couple, Ged and Carol, who were always up for a good chat and immediately my girlfriend and I felt like we were staying with friends rather than in a B&B. We stayed in the Cat Bells room, which had... More

Honister House is a lovely little B & B, slap bang in the middle of Keswick. Spent an ace few days here as a Christmas getaway to walk off the turkey and Christmas pud. The very relaxed hosts provided a great breakfast (loads of choice, not just a full English and cereal), and there was also a home-baked treat in... More

A brilliantly warm welcome from wonderful hosts.Ged introduced us to the local film club in the adjacent vintage cinema-a great night out and lots of interesting discussion about the film over breakfast, next day. Breakfast to die for, with super, locally sourced produce and delicious complimentary cakes in the room each day, courtesy of Carol. It never stopped raining throughout... More

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
