We stayed at Cafe Bar 26 after visiting it for drinks the last time we were in Keswick. The bar itself has a great atmosphere, serves good Tapas and is centrally located within the town centre and a 5 minute walk from the lake. The accomodation is above the bar with a separate entrance if you don't want to walk... More

Great for a short stop in the Keswick area. Rooms are a little small but very comfortable. They were renovating when we stayed so staff were a little stressed out and the cafe area was out of action. Breakfast good. Excellent value for money.

The cocktails were lush, and breakfast the next day was very tasty, and all as terrific value, B&B was half the... More

Stayed for a couple of nights in September. The rooms are really nice, a little small but for a couple of nights just fine. The bathroom was big enough for a short visit too. The breakfast was excellent, good choice and good food. Ideal for a short visit to Keswick, nice bar and dead central for the town. The staff... More

Having been to this establishment on numerous previous occasions, my son, brother in law, and their respective families were travelling home from down south, and I suggested that we all meet up for lunch at Café Bar 26. As always the food and service was excellent and greatly enjoyed by all. The service was first class. We always stay at... More
