My family and I had a lovely stay at this hotel for a couple of nights, and while the rooms are on the smaller side, they are perfectly formed! The rooms are all very clean, comfortable and nicely decorated (loved the wallpaper in ours!) and there are lots of thoughtful extras in the room too. We all felt very welcomed, including my young niece and nephew and the breakfasts in the morning were individually tailored for us and delicious too! There is private parking round the back which is good, and the hotel is only a very short walking distance from the town centre of Keswick, but Blencathra Street was very peaceful. All in all, a very nice place we would definitely come back to!
