“SUPERB”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

Just stayed the one night as I was attending my daughters 30th birthday party in Keswick. The welcome that Peter gave us was warm and informative. The rooms were immaculate. Breakfast was delicious and so well presented. By far the best guest house I have stayed in Keswick.

Only stayed the one night on a long overdue return to Keswick. Peter was brilliant from point of booking to departure. We got the larger room as we knew we wouldn't be up for a big night out and made use of the selection of 200 DVDs available whilst planning the next day using the wide selection of information books/ maps of the area. In the end the weather put us off these plans, but followed Peter's recommendation and we were so pleased we did! The room was exceptionally clean and very comfortable. Breakfast had pretty much everything that you would expect; continental and cooked available.We were able to keep bikes in locked area too.
Thank you so much for making our short stay so lovely!

Thanks Rachel. One of the reasons we bought this place was the potential to store sports equipment as Keswick if a place where activity is everything whether it be walking, cycling etc. We built the DVD collection of classic films to provide an alternative to a night out and it has indeed proved very popular. Hope all is well with you too from all at Salisbury House.

Right in the heart of Keswick City centre, this B&B is one of the best places that I have stayed with my family.

The breakfast is cooked by a chef and, is superb and wonderfully cooked. The room where we stayed was pretty good in size and nicely done.

But the best part of this place is it's owner Peter - he is the guy that makes the difference and makes Salisbury stand out. Peter is an extremely amazing host, with loads of local knowledge that he makes sure to share with all his guests. He is a very warm person with an helpful attitude. After staying here and meeting him it is easy to understand why this B&B has a 5 star rating within the first year of its existence!

Many thanks Raj. We are very pleased you (and family) had a good time here. We built our library/info centre to make it as easy as possible for people to get the most out of their visit to Keswick and the surrounds. If we in the meantime can provide you with a good place to stay then great for us too! Thank you for your kind words. All at Salisbury House.

If you are looking for a B&B in Keswick then stop looking - this is it - you will not find better. We only stayed the one night but we are planning our return. My only concern is that when word gets out the place will be fully booked and we won't be able to get in.......

Peter is the warmest, friendliest most helpful host you could want to meet. With loads of knowledge on the local area. Our room was modern / contemporary and was spotless with lovelly white good quality bedding. The breakfast was superbly cooked and delicious local produce. They do the basics brilliantly but its the small touches that make this place so special. This will be our go to place to stay when in the North Lakes area, and I imagine for many others too when the word gets round about it.

Salisbury House provides everything you could ever wish for from a Bed & Breakfast in abundance ...... impeccable housekeeping standards, stylish bedroom decor, fluffy towels, powerful hot showers, tasty breakfasts (beautifully presented) and a convenient location (just a couple of minutes' walk to the centre of Keswick, but in a quiet side street). Hosts Peter and Alex have perfected the magic recipe for success; their attention to detail is amazing. You will have a wonderful time! Thanks for a lovely weekend. Andy and Julie.
