“Another great stay at the Ellergill, excellent room and friendly owners”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2011

This was our forth visit to the Ellergill B&B for my wife and I and again it was a very enjoyable stay. Lovely room with everything you need, very clean and tidy. Great breakfast with locally sourced ingredients, cooked with care. Excellent service, will be back again later in the year.

Breakfast average, had so much beter in other b@b's in uk and keswick, namely the paddock, but thought would try somewhere else, big mistake Room much smaller than photos suggested, especially for price albeit keswick although clean. Location ok. wouldnt stay again given the competition in that area. No better than average. Don't know why they have lonely planet reviews

Room Tip: Smaller than photo suggested which is why chose the place, very disappointed

In the last 5 years we have had some really lovely guests stay with us and some great reviews,
who appreciate the time and effort we have put into our b&b.
This makes it all the more difficult to understand why someone would write this review.
I suppose as everyone knows in life, you can't please everyone, no matter how hard you try.

Not a single complaint with this place. My girlfriend and I stayed here for a Valentine's Day getaway while studying abroad in England. It was the first time we stayed at a Bed and Breakfast and it was a wonderful experience. The owners were very nice and helpful. Breakfast=delicious. The room was clean and comfortable. It is a beautiful place for the price. Whenever we make it back to Keswick, we will be staying here.

Room Tip: Talk to the owners

just stayed here for 2 nights, and we were pleasantly surprised at how nice it was, the owners were friendly and tthey kept the place nice. They promoted Fairtrade alot, and use as much local produce as poss. The only downside is the lack of parking, but the owners kindly offered to move their car for us to park in the space. weather was great so had a really enjoyable time.

Very nice B & B right in the centre of Keswick. Accommodation was very clean and breakfast was great. Nice and quiet even though you are only 2 mins walk from town. Would definitely recommend this hotel to friends and family. Visited with mum for a short stay, but wished I could have stayed a bit longer.

My girlfriend and I stayed at Ellergill the weekend just gone as a post-Christmas weekend getaway (we needed it!). We have stayed in a few B&Bs in Kewick, but can easily say that it wont be the last at Ellergill! The B&B is ideally located next to Keswick town centre but is tucked away nicely away from the hustle and bustle. We stayed in the front room on the top floor which has great view of Cat bells to the far left, Grisdale pike on the left and Skiddaw on the right. Clare and Robin are a genuinely very nice couple who were very welcoming and were very helpful and informative on answering our questions about the area and on giving advice on walking. They also gave us some pointers for good roads for biking. Excellent value, great location, lovely owners, clean, friendly and well worth a look! Can't say much more about this except it gets 10/10 from us!
