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

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...
