Just back from a lovely couple of days. A lovely location, friendly staff, a really comfortable room. The food was very good, breakfast good quality and plentiful, my husband loved it, I would have preferred it if it had been grilled instead of fried, I had scrambled eggs on our second day which were delicious. Would recommend this Inn.

Just returned from two nights in this lovely Inn. Food was fantastic with very generous portions and good choice. Our room was spacious, clean and warm with everything you could need provided. This Inn is extremely spacious inside and out. There are two bars, various little lounge areas and two lovely roaring fires which was very welcome because we had... More

My wife and I stayed 2 nights in the Catbells Room. The view from the room is fantastic - in our case it snowed over the weekend so the view was breathtaking. The atmosphere in the Inn is very relaxed, staff are friendly and very helpful, even to the point of reserving us a table by the fireside on our... More

Hi Trevor Thanks very much for your review - I'm particular glad that you found the room Catbells comfortable. It is a great view isn't it! Thanks also for mentioning that Keswick is open for business - we do need to get the word out there, as people do believe what they see on TV. We'll be very glad to... More

Thank you for your feedback - we have already replaced the blown bulb in the bedroom, and we're looking at the bathroom mirror light, which is, as you say, faulty. As far as being told that we had no spare pillows, no one was being awkward, we just didn't have any spare pillows, and we were fully booked, so it... More

Visited The Swinside Inn for a mid week break, with my partner. Lovely old traditional Inn, with wooden beams, open fire & Jennings Real Ale on tap 😀 The food portions were big, delicious & served with a speedy service. The rooms are large, with a big en-suite bathroom. All staff were friendly, knowledgeable & answered our questions on places... More

Had a great two night break at the Inn. Our room was nice and cosy warm and spotlessly clean. After a day on the snowy windy fells the roaring open fires back at the Inn were something for us to look forward to. We had dinner and breakfast the food was excellent and served piping hot with a smile. As... More

Had heard of flooding in Cumbria but decided to stay at Swinside Inn anyway. Certainly some people had problems but the vast majority of homes, buildings were untouched in the Keswick area.. Felt the news coverage was focused on a small minority of homes. We really enjoyed our stay, the staff were very friendly and our room was very comfortable.... More

We recently stayed here for 2 nights and were very glad we hadn't been put off by the storm warnings. The pub is on high ground with amazing views from the rooms and the dining area. We stayed with our dog and he was made very welcome everywhere. The staff were friendly and helpful and always on hand. The food... More

We visited at the height of the floods but media coverage did not deter our visit. How glad we are that we kept our booking to stay at the Swinside Inn. A roaring fire welcomed us and our room was warm and clean with a very comfy bed. Dogs are allowed at the Swinside which is very important to us.... More
