Having had a great stay at Lincoln House, I am happy to recommend a visit. So OK, breakfast has a half hour window, but what a sumptuous breakfast with local eggs, bacon and sausage. Lincoln House provides a gold standard for cleanliness and the Owners go out of their way to ensure your stay is a happy one. Free car parking was provided which was a bonus.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front of the house have excellent views

Website says there is ample parking but there isn't. Breakfast is allowed only from 8am to 8.30 am. Room was very small with noisy fan in the bathroom. Bright lights shining through the thin curtains. Pubic hair on the bathroom floor. Not good value for money. Better places to stay in keswick.

, Owner at Lincoln Guest House, responded to this review, July 15, 2011
I am very sorry to hear your comments. Lincoln House has 6 no. car parking spaces for 7 no. bedrooms, if guests bring two cars for one bedroom, I always mange to find a space on the street by the house (which is free parking), no guest has ever had a problem of not being able to park. The curtains in the bedrooms are lined, but of late we have had brilliant sunshine streaming into the house from 5am. I endeavour to keep my establishment spotlessly clean, especially in the bathrooms. I can only apologize for any inconvenience caused to you, if only you had brought these problems to my attention I would certainly have endeavoured to put these right.

Free, filling breakfast and wifi (accessible from the room) were great. The location is perfect and is only a 5-minute walk from the visitors center. My single room was small but plenty for a solo traveler. It's probably best to get a room that's not on the ground floor, though. Staff are very friendly.

I would definitely consider staying here again.

We had the ground floor room it was two single beds one of the beds was next to two windows the street lighting was such that it lit up the whole room as if you had left the lights on and then of course we kept awake by people coming and going through the front door. £66 for B&B was overpriced
