Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 26, 2013

We booked this hotel based on the Tripadvisor reviews and was not disappointed. The view from our front 2nd floor room 4 was breathtaking. The room itself was a little smaller than the photograph made it seem to be and the furniture was a little dated as was the en suite bathroom, which could do with an overhaul, but did function ok. The meal and breakfast was superb although I agree with a previous reviewer that the plates were so hot that the food continued cooking. We actually had to wait for our breakfast to cool down! Staff were all very friendly and the location is great with free parking and a short stroll into town or to the lake. Would I go again, probably not as there are many other hotels to try, but for the views I would!

Room Tip: Room 4 has a balcony and a view of the lake and mountains. Nice and quiet.

I wish I had done this review sooner after our stay in April this year, but was stopped by my browser breaking last time! Me and my boyfriend will never forget the Highfield as it was the base of our first, and such a perfect holiday. The manager Nick was an absolute dream when booking, and was so nice about me annoyingly wanting to change the date of our stay, and then changing back! We stayed in room 16 which was lovely, with it's balcony, view of the mountains and lake, and luxurious decor. Nick somehow carried both our heavy luggage bags up with him at once. Everything was clean, comfy and perfect in my eyes.

After each great day in the stunningly beautiful location - taking the launch to different stops all around the lake, going on walks and climbing Catbells - returning to the Highfield was the best thing ever. Going to dinner was such a lovely ritual that we'd dress up for, and we'd love sitting in the cosy lounge with our tasty canopies and drinks to sit with while deciding what courses to order. The dining room was lovely and and the food was the best we've both ever had! This is taking into account the amazing warm, fresh bread made every day in different flavours, and the sorbet between courses! The service was perfect and we were made to feel like royalty!

Breakfast every morning was of course, amazing too and they served everything you could want for the perfect posh breakfast. Every day the staff did all they could for us and nothing was too much trouble. And aside from this.. IT WAS THE BEST BARGAIN EVER!! I still can't believe how good the deal was - maybe because it was in winter.

Thank you again for such a perfect time ^_^ we still reminisce about this holiday!

We stayed in the East Turret room, the only shame was the outside had scaffolding around, so it stopped the view a little. I do appreciate places of this size need updating and it did not spoil our enjoyment. The room was very homely and the bed very comfortable. Nice stay and the breakfast was fantastic.

Keswick is one of the loveliest towns in the Lake District. It is full of activity, restaurants, a bustling market on Fridays, and home to the acclaimed Theatre By The Lake. There are numerous choices for lodging in the area, but Highfield Hotel stands out for its location and its cuisine. Situated amidst a group of beautiful Victorian buildings, Highfield Hotel looks out over Hope Park and Derwentwater. Rooms are nicely appointed, comfortable beds, down pillows and comforters. Rooms are not particularly large, but certainly adequate. We stayed in one of the balcony rooms with delightful views overlooking the park. The cuisine at Highfield is memorable for its quality and its presentation. The menu has numerous choices, and the food is expertly prepared. Dinner begins with the chef's choice of dainty hors d'oevres followed by a starter, sorbet, main and dessert. Among the food we chose was a magnificent Stilton and spinach quiche, tomato and green chili soup, wild mushroom ragout and saffron linguini with a fabulous cheese course to finish. The lemon sorbet served as a palate cleanser is outstanding! A full English breakfast in included in the rate. Having previously stayed in a number of places in Keswick we definitely would return to HIghfield.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a balcony overlooking the park and the Lake.

My husband and I stayed here 3 nights during our honeymoon. What an amazing place! Our room was luxurious and had a beautiful view of the lake and mountains. This hotel is in a great location too; away from the bustle of downtown Keswick, but an easy five-minute walk to all the bars and restaurants. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, and we enjoyed every moment of our stay.

The food is also excellent and probably the best meal you will find in Keswick, especially for you foodies out there. The menu changes daily. They also have a really nice wine list and great single malts to choose from. The hotel manager knew it was our honeymoon, and the night we dined in the restaurant, he had our dessert brought out on plates that said "congratulations"; very sweet and a nice touch. After dinner, they give you the option to retire to the sitting room for tea or an after dinner drink. Very cozy and romantic.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 16 on the first floor, it was lovely and had a balcony. We also peeked into the Wo...
