“Fantastic B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2011

My Husband and I stayed at this B&B whilst I completed the coast to coast bike ride.

The couple were excellent, as when I arrived I was totally soaked and full of mud. They provided a secure area to store my bike, hot drinks, which were very necessary, and even washed my coat for me to wear the next day!!

I would definately go back to this B&B again, just for a break this time, no biking involved.

My husband and I have had the pleasure of staying with Tracey and Andrew on more than one occasion. They are without a doubt the best hosts in the Lake District and I have no doubt that they would completely go out of their way to accomodate their guests. The room is always immaculate and the breakfasts are delicious. I can't recommend this place enough.

Room was ok. Hosts were reluctant to serve breakfasts earlier than 8.30am - not good when one is travelling with deadlines (ferries) to meet!! We left without breakfast!!

LomasKeswick, Owner at Beckside Guesthouse, responded to this review, August 12, 2011
We are really suprised with this review, this couple requested an early breakfast which we agreed we would do a continental breakfast at 8.00am, we were preparing this when they knocked on our kitchen door at 7.10am to say they would have to leave immediateley. We offered orange juice, fruit etc but they insisted they had to leave, they did take some fresh fruit from the dining room. We feel the review is unjustified when we tried to accomodate their requests for an early breakfast.

We do feel aggrieved with the above comments and perplexed after the guests left leaving this comment in our guest book, we quote "Great room - wish it was not so rushed. Thank you"

We pride ourselves on our customer service and always try to accomodate people where possible.

Great to find a B&B in Keswick prepared to do one night - a rare thing. Beckside was a very pleasant surprise - friendly hosts (Tracey & Andrew), comfortable and very clean en suite room and a very well cooked and presented full English breakfast. Would definitely recommend and stay again.
