We have stayed here before so knew the quality & service to expect, & we weren't disappointed. Hotel is excellently situated in the centre of Keswick. The room was smaller than our previous visit, but not a problem for 1 night. The wardrobe was extremely small in height, a ladies top & mans shirt trailed on the bottom(would have been... More

We booked 2 nights at the Inn on the Square via voyage-prive, and we were very pleased with it. The hotel is well located (city centre of Keswick), with a few shops around, lakes and mountains very close. There's a pay and display car park nearby and a long stay car park opposite the road for which the hotel would... More

We all love the Lake District for its stunning landscape and exciting geography. But for it's hotels? Not so much. Now that the Inn on the Square has opened, Keswick has a four-star hotel worthy of any major European city, let alone a modest Cumbrian town: excellent and numerous staff (not to be counted on in most UK hotels), cozy...

No sleep on first night due to very noisy air conditioning unit immediately below my room window (Herdwick 111) turning on for about 30 seconds and off for 20 throughout the night. This affected other rooms as the receptionist said that other people had complained and that it is a regular occurance. In a room costing £180 a night the... More

Feel completely conned. Stayed in room 108. All night long every few minutes some industrial fans came on outside our window. We were told it was quieter out back. Total lies. Conned by the management. Take the money and run should be this mob's motto. The noise kept us awake all night. I don't know whether the noise was a... More

We arrived just before check-in on Saturday and the receptionist on duty was lovely. She issued us a £2 parking permit and kept our luggage safe so that we could go for a wander. Great first impressions! We came back at around 5pm to check -in properly and had a different receptionist, she too was lovely. We were in room... More

We stayed here for 3 nights on a 2 night b&b and evening dinner plus one night free b&b. Right on the town square, the décor of the hotel and the staff are excellent. Rooms are spacious and comfortable all with en suite shower rooms, after a hard days walking it would have been nice to soak in a bath... More
