Stayed here New Year's Day, on arrival Sally greeted us downstairs with a warm welcome, she then took us upstairs where Keith was finishing off our room. Both are very welcoming and take the time to know you're names which is a nice personal touch. The room was lovely and clean as well as spacious enough for the two of... More

Keith made me really welcome from the moment I arrived. The fully en-suite bedroom was very clean and comfortable, with tea/coffee/biscuits, TV and wifi provided. I was welcomed with delicious homemade cake in the breakfast room (optionally you can make a donation for it to the local mountain rescue team - what an excellent way to raise a little cash... More

From the minute we arrived we were made to feel welcome by Sally and Keith, our room was comfortable, clean, modern and lovely views of the fells. We were shown to our room by Sally who gave us recommendations for meals out and shopping and for our walks while in Keswick. We then had a lovely pot of filter coffee... More

This place is a gem. Rooms are spacious and beautifully appointed. Everything is up to date and of hotel quality. Breakfast is of the highest standard. Everything works. The proprietors offer the warmest of welcomes whilst ensuring guests feel completely independent. It's a 5 minute stroll from Keswick's beautiful town centre. Could not recommend higher.

Spent 3 nights here for my 60th birthday. My family took over this place. Keith and Sally couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble for them.

We received this review whilst dealing with the after effects of the flooding in Keswick.
