The Keswick Country House Hotel
Ranked #6 of 17 Hotels in Keswick
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 9, 2014

We have stayed at this hotel before and always been impressed. The building has quite a history and it is easy to imagine seeing all the dignitaries in all their finery!
Our visit co-incided with perfect warm, sunny weather and we were able to relax in the very extensive grounds with a glass or two. The hotel is away from the busy town but the centre is only a few minutes walk away - and a few minutes more to Derwentwater.
There has been much re-furbishment to the bedrooms which are very well presented for a 3 Star property. All the public rooms have a 'country house' feel though the Dining Room, with its high ceiling and big windows has a special attraction.
On the subject of the Dining Room, dinner at night is especial. The menu changes daily and the choice is both varied and impressive. The Chefs provide some traditional dishes but with an extra dimension by way of vegetables and sauces. Remember to leave room for the desserts - they are a real treat.
What, to us, makes the Keswick special is the staff. The friendly welcome and very efficient service throughout can't help but to imress - and make you think of your next visit.
If you are in the area, make the Keswick your destination.

Room Tip: Upper floors have a slightly better view.

We have just returned from a three night stay which we thoroughly enjoyed. We visit three or four times a year and are always made to feel welcome and comfortable. The food choice and quality is extremely good and well presented. The three course dinner is the perfect way to end a day in such a nice location. The staff are always very pleasant and very helpful.

Room Tip: All rooms are comfortable but views are better at the front and south side. We occasionally spoil ou...

Have just spent a three night break in this lovely old hotel which is very much part of Keswick's history,situated on the site of the old Railway Station next to the leisure centre within walking distance of parks,town centre shops and Derwent Water.Ideal base for ardent walkers as well as less active visitors wanting to spend some time in the Beautiful Lake District and be well catered for with a touch of luxury and excellent food ! The buffet breakfasts offer lots of choices of both cold and hot food.The evening meals offer a varied and different dining experience prepared and served by the excellent hotel staff.All meals are served in a Beautiful dining room overlooking the lovely gardens. We were in a standard room with a double and single bed it was well furnished,exceptionally clean with a large bathroom.Towels were white fluffy and a good size all bed linen well laundered. We often stay in The Patterdale Hotel and have not stayed here before.I have no problem recommending the Country House to other guest and are looking forward to coming back in the future

Just back from a two night stay. Hotel is situated about a ten minute walk from town centre in a quiet location away from traffic noise. Staff were extremely polite anf efficient although it can be problematic getting served at the bar mid afternoon. Food is extremely good and cooked to perfection. Breakfast is buffet service with plenty of choice and piping hot. The building is over a hundred years old and has many features of a bygone age. The acid test is always to ask yourself if you would go back and to that question I would certainly answer yes.

We have been to the Keswick Country House Hotel a number of times and have always been treated well. Because my wife uses a wheelchair we stay on the ground floor of the Station annexe. We notify the reception on booking of her difficulty walking and they couldn't be more helpfully. The restaurant staff always keep a table near the door for us, the reception staff also help wherever they can. They are very attentive without being intrusive. The rooms are kept very clean and tasteful, and there is always everything we need. I would recommend this Hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: There is free wifi but only in certain areas.

The Keswick Country House definitely has an old fashioned feel to it, but in a nice way. The building itself is old and attractive. Entering the lobby, we had some doubts, as the place felt a bit run down, but later we started to like it as part of the traditional hotel experience. Fortunately our Superior room was refurbished, large, clean and very nice.

The dinner, which was included in the room rate, was a highlight. It's served in a classical & grand dining hall, with a view to the lush green lawn in front of it. The service is friendly and professional. The 3 course menu featured modern British food and included a choice of a few dishes for each course. The food exceeded our expectations and should easily be among the best in Keswick.

The British breakfast was nice too. All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this classical, old school hotel, where you feel transferred back in time to a grand hotel 50 years ago. On top, we found it an excellent value.

Great place to stay in Keswick, quite central for the town and fells. Staff are very helpful and the breakfast is second to none!!! Such a choice of every thing. Some rooms are in need of a refurb but every year we visit they have upgraded some more of the hotel. Good value for money.
