“we just keep returning”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2012

this is the fourth year we have been for a short winter break. As always, the service from a very friendly staff was excellent. The room was was very comfortable and spotlessly prepared, with a well stocked hospitality tray that was replenished daily. The menu was varied and the meals were of a high standard. We have never had a more generous buffet breakfast in any previous hotel and felt 'set up' for a day of walking and climbing. We are returning in three weeks time with some of our grandchildren, and although an adult hotel, we kn ow that they will be welcomed. Half term at the Keswick has now become a family tardition!

My wife and I have stayed here on numerous occasions and have always thoroughly enjoyed every stay. The staff are always attentive and pleasant. The food is always superb with plenty of choice. Although we would prefer to have breakfast served rather than a buffet style, there are no complaints about the quality and choice. We highly recommend it for value and service.

Just returned from our fourth trip to this hotel and, as always, had a great time. The building is very grande and in an excellent location within a short walk from the centre of Keswick. The building is a little faded from its earlier former glory but it has always been clean warm and comfortable and remarkably quiet. The high points have got to be the cheerful and helpful young staff team, and the food served in the elegant dining room.... it is really first class with a good range of choices. We have recommended it to lots of friends. We will certainly be returning to a well managed hotel which offers good honest value for money.

This hotel is great. Stayed twice now and loved both times! Only thing I would say is to upgrade as it really does make a difference. Standard rooms are a bit disappointing but the superior rooms or whatever they call them are lovely. Much bigger and with less wallpaper peeling off the walls! Food in hotel is fab! Really nice restaurant although lacking in atmosphere.. Not many younger people in hotel so not recommended for children or ppl who want a more upbeat atmosphere on their trip! For me though it's ideal. Drinks in bar are expensive and it's nicer to drink
In local pubs anyway as they are really friendly and do a lot Of different ales if u r into that thing!

Dear scouser_gal

Many thanks for taking the time to review the Keswick Hotel. We are delighted that you enjoyed your second stay with us and that you were able to benefit from the comforts and excellent views of one of our deluxe rooms.

We are pleased, also, that you enjoyed dinner in the Lonsdale Restaurant and have passed your kind words about the food on to the chef and his team.

The hotel does have an on-going refurbishment programme and currently several bedrooms are undergoing a facelift. If you have time to point out which bedroom you found to have peeling wallpaper we can then check that this has been renewed.

We hope you will come back for a third visit!

Kind regards

Sally Carpenito

We have just returned from a two night stay at the Keswick Country House hotel. We have stayed several times at the hotel and we keep going back, this is mainly due to the high quality service, the excellent food and the ideal location. The hotel is perfect to use as a base for a walking week end with a range of walks from "gentle strolls" through to "lung bursting" yomps! Keswick's shops, restaurants and pubs are only a 5 minute walk. We will return.
