This was my first time staying at the Shemara. I had a lovely en-suite room for one. It was perfect and had a stunning view across the town to the distant hills. The room and bathroom was spotless. The en-suite looks like a later addition to the room but it has been done extremely well - solid walls and quality... More

Stayed the weekend for the Keswick beer festival . Very impressed with the owners who made you feel welcome and the accommodation was first class. Breakfast in the morning was also excellent . Would recommend this B&B .

This was my second week long stay at Shemara. It's a great place to stay - both Richard and Fon makes you feel very welcome. The accommodation is spotlessly clean, and the breakfast is excellent. I recommend this guest house.

We recently stayed 3 nights in Room 4 as a couple celebrating our anniversary and couldn't fault anything about the guest house. It was our 2nd stay here and we'll definitely be back! The room was comfortable and spacious, plenty of storage, comfy bed, lovely large bathroom and so well equipped we hardly needed to take anything with us -... More

What a lovely guest house this is. The owners were lovely and take pride in running this excellent guest house. We stayed in room 2 which was very well equipped and spotlessly clean. The decor, furnishings and bedding were all lovely. Complimentary bottle of water, tea, coffee, hot chocolate, biscuits, chocolates, soap, shower gel, shampoo. The breakfast was great, a... More

We stayed in room 3. Spectacular views over Keswick and mountains. Large room and bay window. Excellent value for money. Location is ideal... Less than 5 minutes walk into Keswick centre. Right opposite is a new Weatherspoons pub (good prices) We weren't disturbed by any noise and our room overlooked it and we stayed over New Year's Eve! Breakfast was... More

We arrived much earlier than the advertised check in time and parked in one of the bays provided. As a courtesy we called in to check this was OK and For told us our room was ready straight away. Excellent service and facilities throughout, lots of hot water, shower simple to operate, everything spotlessly clean. Our hosts were very friendly... More
