Stayed here for two nights with my wife. The hotel is about 5 miles outside Keswick.
On our arrival we we given a tour of hotel. There is really nice conservatory where you can enjoy a drink with nice views and reading material in comfortable surroundings. The owners are friendly as is Anthony, who appears to work every breakfast and dinner shift.
Our room was the only slightly disappointing element, although we were expecting it this from other reviews we have read. It was quite small, but still comfy. The decor in our room could also do with updating.
Breakfast was great with ample choice and lots of it. Three different sizes of English breakfast, kippers, egg benedict, pancakes or smoked salmon. Also flexible service times from 0830-1000.
We had a car free day and got the bus from the stop right outside the hotel. The stop is served by the 554 or X4. Latest you can return from Keswick is 2055. We bought an Explorer ticket for £10 which includes unlimited bus travel in Cumbria.
