Holidaying in the Lakes with 8 big people and 5 little-ish ones, all hungry at 1pm on a Sunday afternoon in Keswick. They accommodated us no problems at all. The waitress staff weren't overly helpful, although warmed up as lunch went by. Food was very good and considering we all ordered at different times 11 out of the 13 meals... More

We stayed in one of the Herdwick rooms which was really lovely and completely dog friendly. I would particularly like to mention two waiting staff who were superb, Tatayana and Zoltan. They were both really helpful and friendly. The steak at dinner in the hotel restaurant was the best I've had! I also had some great banter with the bar... More

We stayed here in July 2014 when it was The Queen's. It was tidy enough then but looking dated and shabby around the edges. We returned in July 2016 to find that the place must have had millions spent on it. Completely modernised top to bottom, fresh and modern feel everywhere. We ate out in town so cannot really comment... More

Found ourselves in the Back Bar on Thursday afternoon, with my son his wife and our beautiful baby granddaughter. Barman was very welcoming and I loved his comment to my son when he asked about the WiFi "You're in a pub! Why do you want WiFi? Talk to each other!" and then promptly handing the code over. We had a... More

Arrived 8th July for my birthday treat, this big hotel has been done out very tastefully, bright modern pictures adorn the walls. The bar area at the front entrance is lovely place to sit & watch the world go by. Our room was smaller than I expected but very nicely decorated in Blues & greens with lovely added touches like...

We stayed here one night after a soaking camping trip to the lakes. The hotel is fantastic - and dog friendly too which is a real bonus. The steak restaurant is excellent - we couldn't finish. And the service was good too - I left something in the room and they were excellent in locating and arranging to send to... More

We were recommended to go to this place, it well worth a visit if you are on a night out in town, nice and modern, it's not very big inside and the bar area is small but the place has a good atmosphere. All the staff seem friendly. It is central and a good place to start.

We arrived in the rain to this beacon of light on the square in Keswick. Although called an Inn it's clearly a classy hotel which you can tell as soon as you walk through the door. The room we'd been given was a superb room at the front of the hotel with great views and a bathroom with a shower... More

We usually stay at the Borrowdale Hotel a couple of times a year (part of the same group) but fancied staying in Keswick town for a change. Parking was complimentary if you booked online and was easy to find. Hotel is beautifully decorated, very modern. Rooms have tea & coffee facilities, water, shampoo, soap, shower gel & moisturiser. Nice touches... More
