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.

Thank you Paul & Dawn, we've had a brilliant Easter weekend. your home is beautiful, had a very comfortable stay, great breakfast and we even got the great weather you ordered for us! We did climb (from the high car park) up to Latrigg before we went home and saw the wonderful views above the cloud base which you recommended... More

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

We regularly stay at westview so thought it was high time we left a review! This is a guest house but the quality of the rooms and hospitality is better than many of the best hotels we've stayed in. We always chose the Lattrigg room which has a lovely super king. There is also lots of room for a travel... More

We recently had a two night stay at the west view and which was great. The owners made us feel very welcome and went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. The rooms are basic but clean and cosy with TVs, ensuite and wardrobes. The lounge was great with books and leaflets all about the lakes, very useful,... More

My wife and I stayed for a weekend walking. The location was fantastic with just a 5 minute walk into the town. The view from our room (6) was breathtaking across the Western fells. The room was spacious and comfortable, the modern shower room with underfloor heating was a sanctuary after a day on the high fells. Dawn and Paul... More

Very welcoming couple who run this B&B and are bike and walker friendly. Small but smart clean room with clean bathroom. A large lounge area for tea and coffer with a great view, tea was offered to us on arrival and interest was taken in what we were doing for the weekend. We had one day walking and one day... More

Thanks for taking the time to write such nice review. We like to look after folk taking part in events. Paul was at the race on registration at 5.45am! Early breakfasts is just part of the service.

We couldn't have picked a better location for our trip to Keswick and Derwentwater Lake. Our hosts were warm and welcoming, breakfast was exactly what we wanted and the views over the hills rolling down to the lake were breathtaking. Our room was a little on the small side, which would be my only complaint, but the location and general... More

Thanks for your review. We have three (shortly to be four) rooms almost double the size of the cosy-standard that you booked. Everything else should be the same, although we cant guarantee the weather! More
