“Excellent B&B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2012

We have stayed here twice now with our grown up children and their partners. We all had superb rooms and were warmly welcomed. Tea and cake on arrival was lovely. Breakfast was very good with individual toasters which were much appreciated.
We were able to book for one night and we were made to feel very welcome. We have been coming to the lakes for 30 years, this is the best b&b we have stayed in yet. We will be returning.
Thanks.
Phil and Margaret

We stayed here in September 2011 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were amazed to hear from Phil & Joy that they had only been in the business for 6 weeks - you would never have known. The rooms were comfortable and plenty big enough. The decoration was a little tired but having only just taken over we were sure Phil & Joy would be updating it to suit their taste and I can see from another review that this is taking place in Jan 2012. The breakfast was excellent and the tea & cake on arrival was a very nice touch. Phil was very helpful with advice for walks in the area and printed off some shorter walks that would suit my in laws who traveled with us and as they cannot walk long distances anymore. We have a visit planned for February and we will certainly be booking here again.

Came back to Claremont House for a new year break. The room "Dollywagon" was very clean and comfortable. Joy and Phil could not have been more helpful or accomodating, breakfast was superb and even had a special menu for new years day. Will definately be staying again

Excellent B&B and wonderful hosts. Breakfast was marvellous and we particularly liked being able to do our own toast at our table. A short walk into Keswick but perfect distance for wWe will definitely be coming back.

This B&B is everything you could want, Joy and Phil are friendly and welcoming hosts, the house is situated just out of the town but not too far on foot and easy accessible by road with good views of the town and surrounding hills, the rooms are very clean and cosy and the bed in the room "Cat Bells" is one of the comfiest beds we have ever slept in. The breakfast is very good and more than enough to take you through until lunch. We stayed for 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed Keswick town and the walks round Derwent Water but having a friendly cosy B&B to stay in made it a perfect New Years weekend break, we cannot recommend this B&B highly enough and cant wait to return in the summer. Regards Andrew & Janet

We decided to come to Keswick for New Year and were lucky enough to get the last room. The room was clean and comfortable. The owners, Phil and Joy, were very welcoming, friendly, helpful and keen for everything to be right for an enjoyable stay. Breakfast was good and Joy cooked a special breakfast and was flexible on breakfast times for New Year's Day, which was a lovely touch and much appreciated.
The location is good, with only a short walk into town.
Joy and Phil told us that they were due for extensive refurbishment this month (Jan 2012) to update rooms. I can see that this will make this lovely B&B even better!
We would certainly stay again
