Very friendly, great atmosphere and superb food. The best restaurant I've been to in a long time. The cosy dining area promotes chat among fellow diners which is a refreshing change. Jungle curry highly recommended (spice lovers only...) We shall return!!!

We have tried on a few occasions to book a table at this very popular restaurant but failed as they were fully booked. Having eaten there last night with friends of ours, I can fully appreciate why it is so difficult to book a table as the food is simply fantastic. A wide menu with plenty of choice, we will... More

Having just returned from The Shemara Guest House over the New Year period with my partner. Wow . Excellent friendly greeting on arrival from Sayfon and having read some of the reviews about Richard expected a Basil Fawltyesque character but was the complete opposite. Both were great and extremely helpful. I'm not normally a fan of B and B's but... More

Was greeted with a friendly smile ..... unfortunately the Thai restaurant was fully booked, worth a return visit though! The room was very clean and the bed was very comfy. The breakfast was so lovely and plenty served. Thank you for a a great visit and hope to see you soon!!!

We had an overnight stay here and we booked to eat in the restaurant. What a wonderful authentic, homemade Thai meal it was! I had the jungle curry and was warned that it is spicy. It certainly was but the flavours were amazing. My husband had the prawn special. The lady who owns the guesthouse is lovely and friendly. It... More

This was our fourth stay at Shemara, and it was every bit as good as we'd come to expect from previous visits. The breakfasts are excellent, and the Thai meals are an absolute delight - better than the Thai restaurant in Keswick. Richard and Fon are warm and friendly hosts. The rooms have always been spotlessly clean. The food is... More

Had Thai meal here one evening which was thoroughly enjoyable and good value. Breakfast very good with quality ingredients and ample portions.

Spent two nights at the Shemara, our 5th time there. One of the best B & Bs we have stayed at. Great central location with car parking. The place was spotlessly clean and the breakfast was really superb. Very friendly hosts.

We have just visited Shemara for a Thai meal & have to say it was absolutely fabulous. The hosts were very friendly. As there were quite a few dishes to choose from on the menu, it was a hard decision, so, we shared 3 starters per couple then ordered our individual main meal. They were all very tasty & authentic.... More
