“Perfect!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2014

We were looking for somewhere to stay in Keswick and chose the Linnett Hill based on Trip Advisor reviews and being located close to the town centre. We received a warm welcome on arrival along with a tour of the communal areas incuding a coat and boot rack area perfect for muddy boots, and a lovely lounge with tea and coffee making facilities and a lovely wood burning stove. Our room was clean and the bed was comfortable and the whole place was decorated in a fresh and tasteful manner. Breakfast was served in a lovely dining room with fresh coissants, poached eggs and full English being our favourites. Our whole stay was relaxed and Andy and Mandy were suberb hosts who always had time for a chat and always rememberd our names which made it feel more like stay with friends. All this made our stay perfect and we have already recommended it to friends and relatives.

We spent two nights at Linnett Hill in Keswick. The location is excellent for walking around the town and free parking is readily available right behind the B&B in their own private lot. Linnett Hill has recently been renovated and is operated by energetic couple, Andy and Mandy. We were booked in upper level room #3 which has a pretty bay window and seat. I think this may be their largest room, but the bathroom door literally hits against the bed. It appears as if they have maximized every inch to allow for the most rooms during the renovation. We found Linnett Hill to be fresh and clean and liked the nice touches such as fresh flowers. I would say that we found room #3 to have quite a bit of street noise at all hours of the night between traffic on the very busy road and people walking back and forth. We asked to move to a different room for our 2nd night and were told that was impossible. Breakfast was delicious in their lovely Breakfast room. Andy does the cooking and Mandy does the serving. We appreciated the fact that you did not have to pre-determine your entrée or breakfast time the night before as so common elsewhere.

Room Tip: Ask about room location when you book. While it has a view, Room #3 facing the road gets traffic no...

Booked this after having seen reviews on trip advisor. Central to town and with a large car park. Excellent hosts. Huge well booked breakfast. Nice touches such as use of a fridge, free bags of crisps and sweets in the lounge. Book rooms 3 or 5 if you can views over the front of the property and wonderful fells,

We stayed here last week for one night but wish it could have been for longer. We were greeted by Mandy who couldn't have been any more welcoming.

We stayed in room 6, the room was lovely with a very comfortable bed and a spacious and modern bathroom.

The personal touches are part of the reason that makes this b&b so special such as the fridge in the hall for all the guests, wine glasses and water in the room, and complementary crisps and biscuits in the lounge.

The breakfast in the morning was great with a wide range of cereals, yogurts, croissants etc followed by a full cooked breakfast.

Mandy and Andy are fantastic hosts and its no surprise to see Linnett Hill rated so high. We can't wait to return and are already planning a longer visit for next time!

Jack and Megan.

My fiancee and I stayed here over the weekend and cannot praise this B&B enough!
It has been beautifully decorated and has that "home away from home" feeling. The owners, Andy and Mandy are meticulous in their delivery of the perfect escape for their guests and you believe them, when they thank you for staying with them!
The room we stayed in was a king size and was beautifully decorated, with an amazingly comfy bed and with all the usual comforts, tea/coffee station, flatscreen tv etc etc.
The breakfast was another treat, local produce and cooked perfectly!
Will we stay again, most definitely. Would we recommend it, very much so!
My advice, go and stay here and see how it should be done!

Stayed only 1night wished it had been more . Andy & Mandy could not have been better hosts, the house has a real happy feel about it. The service could not have been better , keep up the good work you put lots of other places to shame. Will visit again cheers.
