Excellent room the one in the website pictures with the apples on plate (but no apples in our room) with fantastic views down the valley and over the grounds. Staff were very pleasant and helpful, Main style restaurant menu lacked choice as I am not a fish lover, Ritson bar meals excellent choice, also the Black Sail real ale. Had... More

As we were staying close by in a cottage we ate here twice during our weeks holiday and were not disappointed. It is however a bar in a hotel and feels like it, it is not really a pub atmosphere but pleasant nonetheless. The food on both occasions was very good and so was the real ale (very unusual for...

stayed here a few times years ago and found it much more cosy then, it now seems a little on the corporate side and lacks a little homeliness. Breakfast time seemed short on staff and we had to clear used crockery to an empty table in order to enjoy our meal. Areas were looking a little tired. We had a... More

The Hotel itself is ok but the attitude of the staff is terrible. Instantly more concerned with taking pre-authorization payments and checking all is correctly paid before even saying hello. Says it has wifi but that didn't work during our stay. Poor hotel layout meant walking all over the place from the car park to reception and back to the... More

My wife and I stayed at the Castle Inn Hotel while attending a wedding at Armathwaite Hall which is about fifteen minutes walk away. The hotel is easy to find on the main A591 road from Keswick. It has a large car park and a health club/swimming pool. The bar had two very good real ales and although we did... More

Very nice hotel, with large, well furnished rooms. The internet was very poor, but otherwise the hotel and the breakfast were great. Short walk to Bassenthwaite lake, so very well located, particularly if driving down. Keswick is around 15 minutes away.

We stayed here on the 16th July for one night bed& breakfast and from arriving to leaving we was made to feel very welcome. Everything was what we wanted, and would most definitely come back. Thanks to you all.
