This hotel is excellent value for money and the rooms, public areas and food are all good. The menu choice is good and the very small extra cost for dinner on top of the Bed and Breakfast rate makes for a really cheap evening in a large but very nice restaurant. You can walk into Keswick in about 5 minutes and this is past Fitz Park, surely one of the most pleasant parks in the country with amazing views.
The hotel is the original station hotel ie about 100 years old and you can stay in part of the station itself. It is quite a big hotel by Lake District standards but wasn't an issue for us from a noise point of view ie we slept well even though the hotel was quite busy and their was a very large group staying with young children. If you go at a busy time( we went just after New Year) it is worth booking on the upper floor or Station rooms.More
