Lovely and clean. A very warm welcome from Dawn and Ken who can provide lots of information on the area. The breakfast was fantastic. Only a short walk to the shops and restaurants. We would definately stay again.

Stayed at The Winchester for 2 nights. Good value for money, great hosts, great breakfast, clean rooms. Parking just outside the house. Great weekend. Would return for another stay and would recommend this B&B to future guests. Thanks for a great weekend. Steve, Keith, Jeff and Jeff. Fri 10th to Sun 12th June.

My wife and I stayed at The Winchester in Keswick earlier this month and I can honestly say it is one of the best Guest Houses we have ever stayed at. We were extremely impressed with every aspect of our stay. The place was exceptionally clean and well maintained. Our room was on the front and had great views.
Kens breakfasts were the highlight of our stay and far exceeded our expectations and way above any we have had elsewhere on our travels.
Ken and Dawn were great hosts and we are looking forward to a return visit very soon.
Great value for money.

We stayed here for two nights just recently. The accommodation was excellent & very clean. It was also central to Keswick. Facilities were great with tv & wifi. The owners were friendly & attentive without being intrusive - just the right level. The breakfast was fantastic - the best we have had from any hotel or b & b. None of the negative comments above were relevant during our stay - we were made to feel positively welcome. I would stay here again & recommend it to others.

We have just returned from a really wonderful 3 nights stay at The Winchester in Keswick.
Dawn and Ken were superb hosts and could not have been more welcoming and made us feel so at home. Nothing was too much trouble and they were full of good ideas and advice about where to eat out and places to visit etc.
Kens breakfasts were second to none and we would highly recommend the Full Breakfast as you will not need to eat anything else until teatime!!
We are already looking forward to returning.

Even as we set foot through the door we where put out by the owners attitude, insisting that we took our shoes off at the door, even though we obviously had to go back out to the car for our bags etc and had only walked from the car to the door. Had we been coming back from a walk with muddy boots, that may have been understandable.

Each time we came down the stairs, one of the owners would be hovering in the entrance to their accomodation watching what you was doing, which made each of us uncomfortable. Again, each time we returned we would be pounced on to remove our shoes in the porchway - how on earth can four people do this at the same time if it is raining outside.

One morning, my breakfast plate was removed from in front of me while I was still eating! and one evening "while seeing us out" the door was closed on the back of my friend by one of the owners, while trying to put her shoes back on!

All that aside, the place was very nice and breakfast was OK, if not just a little pretentious, it is a guest house afterall, not a michelin star retaurant. Very well situated for the town centre and access to Skiddaw.
