The hotel is clean and comfortable in a gorgeous old historic Cumbrian building. We had a very comfortable bed and the breakfast was excellent. The welcome was warm and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The location is fantastic, being a short walk from Keswick but in a quiet and peaceful spot. Walks and hills are easily accessible and... More

It's in an excellent location, only 10/15 min walk into town. Lovely old victorian building with great views of Skiddaw. Room was quiet, clean, and comfortable. Hosts were friendly and very helpful. Breakfast's included in the price, there was a good selection, and the full English breakfast wasn't greasy. Basically, I'll gladly stay there again!

I have recently returned from a weekend trip to the Lairbeck hotel and I can not recommend it enough! The location is ideal for any lake goer in that it's in such a tranquil location but is also only a 10 minute walk from the town centre. The rooms, owners, and breakfast were all fantastic and made myself and my... More

Had a 3 night stay with wife and parents in this wonderful hotel, both rooms were spotlessly clean and very comfortable, the owners Malcolm & Jennifer as well as the staff are extremely friendly and we felt we were treat like friends rather than customers, the breakfasts were absolutely lovely, proper good home cooking with a varied choice and good...

I have just returned from a two night stay at the Lairbeck, which was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. From our very arrival we were greeted with a warm welcome and felt at ease throughout our stay. The owners and their staff are kind and approachable people, the history and architecture of the building itself is alluring and the surrounding scenery... More

Booked rooms online for a family holiday and phoned to ask a few follow-up questions. I was told that the hotel does not accept children, which is unfortunate for us, but good to know before we showed up on their doorstep. However, when I tried to explain that it is quite possible to book online for a family with small... More

This reviewer has not stayed at Lairbeck. She booked rooms via a booking agent where it is quite explicit that we do not take bookings for children. The booking agent process only allows adults to be included in the booking. This is a copy of the booking cancellation with the booking agency: Cancellation Summary Room 1: Gran’s Room - Deluxe...

I stayed here recently with my boyfriend for two nights, I'd never been to a b&b before but was extremely impressed. The hosts were very polite and catered to any of my needs. The location is beautiful in a little village just a 15 minute walk from both Keswick centre and Derwent waters. I stayed in 'the cook's' room, which... More

We wanted a comfortable hotel in Keswick away from the town centre. The Lairbeck fit the bill very well. It is about 10 minutes walk from the centre, and is located in a nice quiet road just a few minutes walk from a good pub/restaurant. The hotel has its own gardens where you can sit and enjoy a drink from... More
