The Shemara is always our first choice for a stay in Keswick. Richard and Fon very good hosts ,very welcoming and friendly. Accommodation and food is of the highest quality, we recommend the Shemara to all our relations and friends if they want to visit the Lakes.

My husband and I visit this b&b every year. Richard and Fon always make us welcome! We love the great location (right in the centre of Keswick) and the breakfasts are lovely. We always stop in room 3 which is well decorated and has views of the fells. I really recommend as a place to stay when visiting Keswick!

Great place to stay. Very welcoming, clean and comfortable. A good location with easy access to the town and its facilities and the surrounding area. The breakfasts are excellent as is the Thai cuisine - but you need to book early!

My partner and I have just stayed at the Shemara for three nights. We set off with the agenda of finding relaxation, a good breakfast and comfortable accommodation... basically to help us escape the rat race for a few nights. We were not disappointed! Our room was spotlessly clean,cosy, quiet and well equipped, and the bed very comfy. The establishment... More

Shemara was a great find! The location was wonderful - just one short block rom the shops. The bathrooms were remodeled a couple of years ago and very clean. The attention to detail was very impressive. Breakfast was more than the traditional fare. My brother-in-law had Eggs Benedict and said it was excellent. I would definitely stay there again. My...

I have lost count of the number of times that we have stayed here and Richard and Fon never fail to impress. The facilities they provide just keep growing! Spoilt for choice when it comes to breakfast

This is an extremely well run establishment. Polite courteous and professional staff with a very warm Thai greeting. Room was just as advertised, nicely sized, clean, new bathroom tastefully decorated. Towels were new and very fresh. Breakfast was one of the best full english breakfasts I've ever had everything cooked perfectly. Location was amazing just a stones throw from the... More

Eggs Benedict, Kippers on Toast, Smoked Salmon & Scrambled egg's are... More

My partner and I have just returned from Keswick after spending two nights in the Shemara Guest House. Thought the weather wasn't the best, the hospitality from the owners of Shemara was great. And the Thai restaurant that is part of the Guest House is very good. Though it is small it is cosy and tasted as good as it... More

We stayed here for two nights and found the breakfast was fulsome and good quality, the view from our window excellent and ever-changing, the proprietors affable, fixtures and fittings in good repair, the bed comfy rather than careworn, the location ideally suited within the town centre, near public transport connections, and the evening Thai food was really tasty with no...
