5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2013

When i went to the lake district, The strathmore guest house was the only one with a room available in town, I did not know what the strathmore guest house would be like or the services they provided , it was a last minute book, I was just so happy to get a room , but the moment i walked inside, i was so glad that i met Paul, he is an amazing person , warm, funny and a big joker also a great HOST.
I must say that he will go lengths to make sure that you are happy and satisfied , you will enjoy a great conversation in the morning, and great food, the place is really clean and well looked after, and maybe you will be lucky enough to meet his little girl and jodi.
If you do plan to travel with kids strathmore guest house is the perfect choice, never been to such a warm and welcoming place before!!
Thank you so much for the help and advice on places to visit!

i booked just 2 hours before I arrived and was able to stay in room 1, a double. I found the room much more modern than the photos suggest. I was very happy with new bathroom suite, having not seen any photos on their website. Amenities were excellent, including a hair dryer and body wash. I had a fantastic nights sleep. Peaceful and comfortable.

Breakfast. I made my choice the day before and was happy with the selection of hot items. There was an excellent choice of fresh, prepared, dried fruits and cereals. My hot breakfast followed shortly after I sat down. Very efficient service and what a perfectly cooked English breakfast.

I don't usually stay in b&bs but as I was travelling alone and wanted to stay within walking distance to Keswick, this was the perfect choice and I am very delighted with my stay.

I would definitely recommend this guest house.

We had a faultess stay at this exceptional family run B&B. It's in a great location, walking distance to the town centre but very quiet, with ample parking.

The hosts were very welcoming and knowledable about the area. They organised taxis for us and recommend fantastic restaurants and bars.

Our room was very comfortable with everything we needed. The bed was particularly comfortable with very high quality bedding.

Breakfast was fantastic, good coffee, fresh fruit and good quality sausages and bacon.

We will certainly return to Keswick and would look no further than the Strathmore.

Keep up the good work.

An overnight stay was sufficient to want us to return again!
Conveniently located on a quiet street made for easy access to the town and lake and after a few pints we were able to stroll home (rather than catch a taxi)
The room was very comfortable with all that was needed and the duvet was especially cosy.
Breakfast was a banquet with fresh blueberries, strawberries & bananas that got my immediate attention. The host "Simmy" cooked a tasty gourmet full English breakfast that was 'faultless' and left me totally satisfied by the time I had finished the freshly brewed coffee.
Well done and definitely good value, keep up the exceptional work

We only stayed here for 1 night but wish we could have stayed longer! The owners are welcoming & friendly without being overbearing. The house is a just a short stroll away from galleries, cafe bars, shops, restaurants and the lake and overlooks a beautiful church, so it's very well positioned. The bedroom itself was a small double, the owners said it was the room in need of redecorating the most, but I found it to be charming and incredibly comfortable! The shower was hot and powerful, towels fluffy and plentiful and the duvet and pillows were top quality Dorma hungarian goose down with 300 thread crisp white sheets (I know because I checked:)) The room had everything you'd expect, flat screen wall mounted digital tv, tea & coffee facilities, lovely biscuits and a few nice toiletries. We woke to the smell of bacon and hurried downstairs for breakfast. What a treat! A delicious cooked breakfast (perfect poached eggs, bacon, good quality sausage, mushrooms, oven roasted tomatoes, hot buttered toast and filter coffee) as well as yoghurt, blueberries, strawberries, grapefruit, cereal, muesli etc etc! Much better than some expensive hotels I've stayed in! We will be back for more soon, thank you!!
