5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013 via mobile

The owners were lovely, very hospitable, knowledgeable and friendly, not to mention hard working! Our room in the annexe was really nice, spacious, clean and had everything we needed. There was a bit of noise from upstairs and also from a banging pipe, but nothing too awful! The guest house is really nice, in a good location about a 15 minute walk into Keswick where there are numerous rsstaurants and shops. We walked to do the Catbells climb from there too. Breakfast was really nice and the tea and cake on arrival a good touch too. Would definitely recommend and would stay here again in the future.

Stayed at this guest house for 2 days, the room was very clean, nice atmosphere and comfortable. Easy and nice walk to get there from the city centre.

Claire and Craig are really nice people. They have an excellent customer service, the day that we left it was raining a lot and Craig offered us to take us to the bus station by car, which we really appreciated, it was really nice from him.

The breakfast was excellent and enough before a long walk.

The only thing that I was a little bit disappointing was their wifi connection, which is not high speed, but well it was a good excuse to stay apart from technology and just have a nice weekend enjoying the great views that Keswick has.

Room Tip: Some rooms have better views, check it.

Another relaxing weekend at Dalegarth. Comfy large room. Lovely views. Friendly helpful owners and gorgeous food. Catering for veggies with imaginative dishes. So well located, very quiet yet central, just one mile from Keswick. Will be back!

Rarely have we stayed at a hotel where we felt so welcome and comfortable the moment we walked thorugh the door. Everywhere is spotlessly clean, our hosts, Clare and Craig, could not have been more helpful; nothing seemed too much trouble for them, and the food was wonderfully cooked and beautifully presented. There was a well stocked bar, with a good selection of wines. We stayed in one of the annex rooms (10) and found it to be very conveneient. We were lucky with the weather and so did not have to walk to meals in the wet, but even if it had been wet the distance is not great and unbrellas are available. Thank you Clare and Craig for a super holiday, we shall be back and we are telling all our local friends about you. JandPC

Our first visit - very welcoming hosts - super food by chef Clare with sufficient choices each evening - nothing too much trouble - enjoyed the perpetual supply of home made cake. Lots of repeat visitors amongst the guests which says its own commendation. We enjoyed our well appointed room with view to Derwentwater.

We have just had our third visit and the high standard of our first visit is more than maintained.
Food, hospitality and ambience are excellent. We just love our visits and will return as soon as we can. We have a definite booking for early next year and will return sooner given the opportunity.

Clare and Craig offer an ideal base for walking / site seeing in the northern lakes and would strongly recommend.

Room Tip: One and four face the lake.
