We have stayed in Keswick for many years but this is by far the best of them all. Thank you Richard and Karen. You were so welcoming. The decoration of the room was lovely and light and the bed was so comfortable. The choice at breakfast was excellent. Richard's knowledge of the area was very helpful, especially as I had... More

First if all the hosts. Richard and Karen are wonderful, kind and welcoming. Second the room we've stayed in twice is spot on, clean, modern and comfortable. Third the location is great and just a few minutes walk from the centre. Finally the breakfast is delicious! We've been fortunate to be 'looked after' by Richard and Karen twice. On both... More

Everything was perfect, from the moment we walked in to the unfortunate moment when we had to check-out. Karen and Richard are full of helpful information and made our stay in Keswick very comfortable. Would recommend Clarence Guesthouse to stay whilst in Keswick to people of all ages!

Great totally immaculate guest house close to Keswick town centre. Richard and Karen couldn't be more helpful and Richard was very knowledgable with everything in The Lakes. Freshly cooked breakfasts were lovely too. Would highly recommend this guest house. Graham and Helene Isle of Man

Having stayed at Clarence House a few times now I looked forward to a warm welcome. From the moment I arrived from Penrith station on the bus, which is a very easy journey I felt very relaxed. It is true the weather was not great for walking the hills but as the property is such a short walk from Keswick... More

What a wonderful time we had visiting Keswick in August. We stayed for 2 nights at Clarence House. Everything from the time we arrived to when we left was perfect.
