This hotel is not actually in Keswick, but in a place called Thirlspot, just north of Thirlmere on the A591. We stayed here over Easter on an Easy Break package. The hotel is an old coaching inn and has has plenty of character with low beams and panelled walls. The staff were excellent - very friendly and helpful. We stayed in the room above the entrance which was a reasonable size and very warm, but the big problem was the lack of space in the en suite. The shower was very good but there was no room between the WC and the basin which made life very difficult.....! It appears many of the rooms are like this. To be fair this was the only problem we had. The views from the breakfast room up the valley were superb. The choice of items for breakfast was considerable and the quality of the food was very good. We had dinner each night and despite the fact that we were on an all-inclusive package there were no restictions on the choice from the menu and the meals were superb. The hotel is in a great location for low and high level walks. The snow made for an interesting adventure but it also added to the beauty of the place.
