The guest house is in the ideal spot for the lake, park and town centre. We stayed in a prestige room, room was large with king size bed. Big bathroom with double sized shower. Breakfast was delicious and they would cook whatever combination you wanted that day and from scratch. Dawn and Paul who own the guest house are a... More

I would recommend this b&b to anyone, friendly warm welcome, quite relaxing weekend, clean and warm, and lovely eggs at breakfast, also a lovely touch at breakfast was the fresh fruit. Loved it. Also the views out of the bedroom was spectacular.

Got a lovely warm welcome from Paul who met us at front door. We booked online Friday lunch time and got to guest house at tea time. Room was perfect, lovely super king size bed and fantastic bathroom. Breakfast was superb, both my husband and I had a different breakfast both days, good choice. Would go back.

I stayed at this guest house on Thursday and Friday last week with my fiancé. We had the Causey Pike room and true to its name we had an excellent view of Causey Pike. The facilities at the guest house are wonderful, great shower, walk in wardrobe and comfortable bed. Enough milk provided with the tea and coffee too. Breakfast... More

One of the best B&B experiences I've ever had! Paul and Dawn were fantastic hosts and breakfast was amazing. Will definitely be back and cannot recommend highly enough. Paul is exceptionally knowledgable about the area and a great help if looking for things to do. They cannot do enough for you. Myself and my colleagues were there to climb Scafell... More

Echo Davesbird235 - "a warm, welcoming and very comfortable stay". Paul and Dawn are great hosts, location is fantastic, room was clean, well appointed and comfortable, breakfast very satisfying - didn't want for anything more. First time in Keswick, would definitely go again and stay at West View.

Warm, welcoming and very comfortable stay with Dawn. Would recommend to anyone. Gorgeous views over the park and fab location with easy access to into town. Loved the different China mugs everyday in the room and the peace and quiet.

Booked the hotel for SO and myself as a base to do some walking in the hills. Would recommend to anyone planning to do this, easy to find and a quick drive to a number of great walks. I asked Dawn, the proprietor, if she could recommend a florist in town for me to surprise my SO with flowers on... More

It was our second stay at west view and this time we paid extra for a room overlooking the hills and it was beautiful. The room was very spacious and comfy with a proper hot shower. The view over to the hills is spectacular. The breakfast was massive and set us up perfectly for days spent in the hills. We... More
