This month we have been travelling in different parts of the UK and stayed in 8 different B&B, all around the same budget/price points. My family truly enjoyed our stayed at Portland House. The B&B is so well kept, with everything working and comfortable (wifi, beddings, hot water, etc). Most B&Bs have the same breakfast menu items but in Portland... More

We stayed for 2 nights mid July. We were informed that check in would be at 5pm and as we arrived a little earlier we decided to have a wander around Keswick town - which is only 3-4 minutes walk away - ideal! Denise and Rod arrived promptly at 5pm and we were shown to our room (No.3) upstairs facing... More

My first stay with Denise and Rod and I have booked my bed for next year. The bed was wonderful. Great choice for breakfast. Rod always said the plate was hot and also the food. Lovely stay. It was refreshing that I could have fresh milk for use in the room which was very much appreciated.

Once again Denise and Rod were so welcoming instantly making you feel at home. It's great to be able to get fresh milk for tea in your room and the home made cakes are very difficult to resist. We've stayed before and we will definitely stay again.

Stayed here for three nights with my husband and two other couples. From the second we arrived to the time we left, we couldn't have asked for anything more. Rob and Denise were such great hosts, very friendly and fun to be around; you get the feeling that nothing is too much trouble for them. We stayed in the large... More

Very much a home-from-home gaff: friendly, warm and welcoming, and every courtesy and comfort offered, despite one of our party insisting on calling Denise by another name..! Perfect location too, and plentiful breakfast on offer:- certainly a very positive review here!

Just had another great holiday staying at Portland House. The room was clean and well equipped, lovely soft towels. The food was excellent as usual. We really enjoy our visits to Keswick and wouldn't stay anywhere else. There is so much to see and do here. This time we went to the theatre, swimming, walking and had two rides out... More
