Friendly, comfy, good breakfast to set you up for a day walking, we managed to walk to Cat Bells before climbing it rather than take the ferry across Derwent Water.

Room Tip: There are only three rooms

We stayed at Lakeland View for a weekend in June. It's a friendly comfortable place with great breakfasts. Our bed was comfortable and the room was quiet. The B&B was within easy walking distance of the town centre ande the lake. Parking was included.

Just returned home after a lovely one night stay at the Lakeland with my partner. I have to admit i am a very fussy person when it comes to eating out and staying in hotels, B&B's etc so after this experience i am more than happy to leave a review.
Firstly when we arrived there was secure parking then a lovely welcome when we arrived at the B&B. We Where showed to our room quickly explained breakfast times etc then was left to relax and enjoy our stay. The room was very clean, smelt lovely and fresh - nothing worse than walking into somewhere and it smelling damp and dirty
. Bed had gorgeous duvet and sheets. Bathroom was spotless. Then to top off our stay the breakfast was fantastic all cooked perfect and standard of food was great - it seems no expense is spared at this place they really do go all out with furnishing down to food cooked in the moring - i will almost definatly be staying here again - its in a great location just a short 5 min walk into the centre

Room Tip: all 3 rooms are fab so you will be happy

Four of us stayed at the Lakeland View B&B in May 2011 when on a 2 day walking holiday. I usually feel uneasy in B&B's but as we couldn't find an Hotel vacant, we decided to give this one a try.

Upon arrival I found the owners Les and Julie to be very welcoming and informative, without being over friendly. What I like is the privacy of their establishment - you don't have to walk through their private quarters to get to your rooms.

Once in your room it is quiet, relaxing and spotlessly clean. They have en-suite toilet / shower room and sky TV in rooms. (Beehive Bedlam)

Breakfast is served in a window of 8:30am to 9am which is adequate as there are only 3 rooms to cater for. The tables are nicely spaced so you avoid those awkward silences or having to make 'polite conversation' with other guests. Again spotlessly clean and lovely bowls of freshly cut fruits for a starter.

Ideally placed for a 5 minute walk into Keswick town centre and great starting point for Skiddaw and Latrigg Fell. Parking at the establishment is also provided for each room.

I will definitely return time and time again.

Having just returned from a 3 day break in Keswick, I have to strongly recommend staying at the Lakeland View, as aside from its wonderful views of the brooding massif of Skiddaw Mountain, the accommodation was spotlessly clean and beautifully furnished (up to date, nothing chintzy at all). The breakfast itself was delicious - a good range of cereals, fruit and a lovely full English cooked breakfast on offer. The hosts themselves were a real pleasure to meet - friendly, chatty and always willing to help you with your requests. After a day in the fells, coming back to a clean, beautiful B&B with good hosts, you're left with an excellent impression of the hospitality of Lakeland. I will certainly be staying there again!

This hotel was a joy to stay in! had a great time in Keswick also. The little town is a bustling hub with plenty of coffee shops and a famouse Goulash recipee if you look hard enough! Room was clean and pleasant, very well decorated and kept up to! the owners were extreemly welcoming and happy to chat with us, help us with bags etc....breakfast was great! a good hearty english with options for fruit cereals and i dare say anything else if i would have asked!

If you looking for a nice break away and want a nice place to stay then conisder the Lakeland. The trip advisor photos dont do it justice and when you sat eating your breakfast looking out of the window you cant help but admire the hotels location!
