This is a nice B and B but there were a few things that fall short. Firstly after travelling all day the owner made us fill out registrations ( we had already paid thru a tour operator) and made us order our breakfast before he would take us up to our room. Our room is the smallest double room I... More

Just had a couple of nights b&b and what a great find. The service was second to none, excellent standard of rooms, well furnished, and quality linen used. Great breakfast, and nothing was to much trouble. Parking on street outside free all day if you wait for a space. You won't be disappointed.

Very good breakfasts, nice to have good table linen. The second floor room I had was well appointed if a bit small. Wifi good and free. There is only on-street parking, which could cause problems with handling luggage.

Very comfortable room, excellent breakfast. Close to the city center. Came here with Rabbies Tours to Lake District. Bit hard on us pensioners to go up 2 floors but manager very helpful. Very peaceful.

Great hosts, super breakfast, nice and cosy rooms and a great location right round the corner from the centre of Keswick. Great shower and I liked the tea and biscuits in the room, room was a little small on the top floor but we didn't care about that. Fruit salad at breakfast was delicious!

It rained the whole time but the B&B is so centrally located i could explore the shops that were just 3 mins down the road so easily. They owner is so friendly and accomodating and does a superb job of... More

Rooms were great, food excellent and our hosts superb. Dorchester House is well located in Keswick and perfect for walking with Latrigg and Skiddaw on the doorstep and the launch and buses for travel around the North Lakes. We've stayed here many times and I'm sure we will be back again another time.
