Lakeside House is superb, a fitting 2nd stage to our honeymoon, full credit to Peter for running an excellent establishment. We stayed in Room No.2, very spacious with a beautiful view of Causey Pike that is etched in my memory! Very close to all amenities in the town itself too so all in all, top marks.

Thank you for your recent review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your honeymoon with us, its always important to us that guests enjoy their stay but even more so when its such a special occasion. Room 2 is certainly a popular room for special occasions due to its size and position. Thank you again and best wishes to you both.

Just returned from our first stay at Lakeside House and already booked for next year. Booked room 3 and were not disappointed, with beautiful views across to the fells. All rooms are tastefully decorated and it is clear that a lot of thought has gone into the design of the hotel. Breakfast was freshly cooked, tasty and varied . Staff are attentive but not intrusive. All in all a very pleasant stay. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Room 3 has excellent views.

We stayed for two nights last weekend 1st /2nd June. Our first stay in the Lake District and just picked the Lakeside House by chance, and glad we did.
Location was great, short walk from the town, Theatre and Lake.
On arrival found we had been upgraded, with a fantastic view, at no extra cost. The room was decorated to a very high standard.
Breakfast was delicious and cooked to order, with the staff being warm and friendly.
We will be returning to the Lake District again, with the Lakeside House top of our list.

I stayed at Lakeside House in early May (found it by chance) and I am so glad I did! The hotel is pristine - cleaner than anywhere I have ever stayed. It is completely updated with a modern bathroom and stylish decor. Breakfast was delicious - everything fresh and lots of choices. I loved the drying room for wet boots.
The view of the park and mountains is amazing. The hotel has an excellent location just steps from the lake and steps from the town with restaurants and shopping less than a 5 minute walk.
Best of all, Peter and Christine made me feel very welcome. They offered thoughts on walks to take, where to eat and all the details on transportation.
I will definitely return to the Lake District - specifically Keswick - and to Lakeside House.

Our 2 night stay here could not have been better. We had a beautiful room (number 2 I think) which had amazing views. Breakfast was lovely. The location is brilliant. Short walk to the town, the lake and the Theatre on the Lake. I highly recommend Lake View.

Have just returned from a 3 night break at this hotel and we both really loved it. The hotel is of a very high standard and the room we were allocated had a fantastic view over the mountains and park. The rooms were decorated individually to a very high standard and the shower room, although small was of a very high standard, with lovely white fluffy towels and good toiletries - water was always hot. Free Wi-Fi in rooms as well as a flat screen tv and ipod dock. Tea and coffee facilities and the option to buy a bottle of wine to drink in the room was available from reception. The breakfasts were yummy and freshly cooked and prepared. A particular favourite was the Egg Benedict and the fresh fruit salad and yogurt. A drying room is available and a parking permit for the local car parks as parking outside is only allowed from 4pm - 10am. Close to various different places to eat, shops, lake and theatre - a perfect spot. All staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly. The walking opportunities in the local vicinity are endless. Would not hesitate to stay again.

Room Tip: Delux rooms facing the mountains and park.

We took a 2-night break at Lake Side House. The accommodation was excellent, beautifully furnished with a contemporary style in a traditional setting. Breakfast was quality fare. The location was ideal for walking into the town centre and for easy access to a range of dining places. It was also very near to the Theatre by the Lake, so very convenient to walk along to an evening performance. Proprieters couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. Absolutely top marks, thank you!

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the park with great views to the hills beyond are wonderfully well situated.

Thank you for your kind review and the top marks! As you said, we are in an ideal location, with the town and lake very close by - The Theatre by the Lake is just a few minutes walk and there is something for everyone on all year round so we hope you will visit them, and us, again in the future.
