“Pleasant guesthouse”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

We spent one night here and got what we expected. The room was clean, well decorated, and well equipped. We like soft beds and these were a bit too soft for us.The shower worked but was not at all powerful. The breakfast was good - nothing unusual but good bacon and sausage and the usual cereals, yoghurt etc. The lady owner ( and her dog) are friendly and obviously used to having a lot of people pass through. There is a pleasant garden although no lake view - in fact its outside / uphill from Keswick. We liked the village atmosphere of the locality and had a very jolly evening in the Farmers Arms at the end of the lane - good basic food.

A very pleasant Guesthouse. The tastefuly decorated room was very comfortable, spacious and clean. The owners were very welcoming and friendly.The beds were very comfortable,nice added touches with the towels :) lovely toiletries, also a hairdryer is provided and tea and cofee facilities.The breakfast was really good, you could have cereal grapefruit and toast to start followed by a full english cooked breakfast.Close by pub 'The Farmers Arms' serves great food within easy walking distance and reasonably priced. This Guest house is the perfect stay for a couple of nights. very happy,Highly recomended.

Stayed one night in a family room. Was abit squashed for 4 but was ok for one night and the bedroom was very clean, with lovely comfortable beds and the family room was excellent value for money for us. Breakfast excellent. There is a bar area although we havent used it. Excellent location for a short walk to Keswick etc. Was our second stay here and would definately return.

Ok stay but was very average. I felt that it was a little over priced for what we recieved. We had to move rooms at the start of our stay due to a leeking roof (i dont think this has happened before) although we were not offered a reduced rate for the inconvience ! Which i felt was not acceptable (money meant more than customer satisfaction)

A nice, modern guest house with a lovely atmosphere.We stayed in one of the family rooms which was good value for the 4 of us for 1 night. Breakfast was tasty and filling.Would recommend and would stay here again.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2011

My wife and i spent one night here and found the whole experience very average.The bedroom was clean and spacious , but the bathroom although again roomy was very shabby and dated. At breakfast we found it to be a limited choice and chaotic but decent quality although only served between 8.30 - 9.00am. In my honest opinion i have paid a good bit less and had a better experience and not sure why this has a four star rating. Reading earlier reviews maybe i chose the wrong day and wrong room.

Room Tip: Avoid room no6
