I concur with all the people who have left so many gold-star reviews: Ged and Carol have established a wonderful guest house which I look forward to visiting again as soon as I can. The warmth of their hospitality is second to none. The room I stayed in was comfortable and clean, the breakfast was delicious - my dietary quirks... More

Honister House is an absolute delight, mostly due to the owners, Carol and Ged who can't do enough to make you feel welcome and comfortable. My friend and I had the "budget" room but there was nothing to suggest it was budget. The beds were comfy, we had a brand new bathroom, lots of extra little touches to make our... More

Jed is the host with the most and Carol's baking is to die for (ginger and treacle cake upon arrival in room and topped up with peanut butter crunch bars on the second night). Throw in the fabulous vintage fittings = WIN. We checked out this place same time next year and it's already booked up. If there wasn't so... More

We stayed at Honister house for 4 nights and it was such a pleasure to be there. The breakfast was delicious every morning, with plenty to choose from. The room itself was very comfortable, with everything you need. Lovely bathroom. Delicious cakes and biscuits await your return after a day of walking around the Lakes. The house has a really...

We have stayed at Honister House before and in our opinion it just gets better. Carol and Ged are the most congenial hosts you will come across. The breakfasts are wonderful, with a choice that will please everyone. And the daily tray-bakes left in the rooms are a sheer delight. The rooms are tasteful appointed with musical themes, but ones... More

Carol and Ged are very good hosts. They were helpful suggesting hikes, restaurants, etc. The food was fresh and yummy. Our room was comfortable. It is close to the lake, surrounded by shops and resaurants.

My wife and I stayed two nights during our pitstops in Keswick and we were both floored by the quality of service provided by Carol and Ged. Starting from the email communications before our arrival, the accommodating our early arrival, the neat and tidy rooms (which come with fresh baked goods every day) to the delicious home cooked breakfast this...

Three friends and I stayed at Honister House for two nights at the start of a walking holiday, a week and a half ago, and I can honestly say that it was probably the best B&B experience I have ever had! Ged and Carol were wonderful hosts, from coming to greet us with a parking permit on our arrival to... More

We stayed 3 nights in the Twin Room at this B&B. The room was small but sufficient for us even with two suitcases spread out over the floor. Wifi was strong and stable, and the en-suite toilet was newly refurbished with a strong shower. The B&B was also centrally located near the town centre and a short walk away from... More

Thanks so much to Jed and Carol for what was a truly special stay in Keswick for my friends and I. The room decoration and themes were really cool and everything clean and neat. The wide range of breakfast options was a treat, with each being better than the last and the 'nothing too much trouble' attitude was amazing. Jed... More
