We stayed at The Skiddaw Hotel for 3 nights mon to thurs.
I had no problems finding the hotel / central car park, I simply put the postcode off the hotels website for central car park into my sat nav and it directed me straight into central car park, from where the hotel is obvious, you are given a pass for the car park, although you do pay a deposit for this pass & it is secured against your credit card should you loose it, this is fair enough as obviously the hotel has to buy these passes.
We found the hotel to be excellent, we had a family room No. 3/4 which is actually two rooms separated by an entrance hall which also has a bathroom off it, the quality of the rooms were very good and this suite is a great choice for families. The bathroom was of a very high standard, large with top quality fittings, including a large bath with shower over.
Despite being central in Keswick we had no noise issues, the room was tripple glazed, we woke up on the Thursday to find a market set up outside in the main street, which our room overlooked, and we hadn't heard anything.
We had booked B&B, the breakfasts were excellent, good choice of fruit juices, cereals, fruits etc. the cooked options were cooked fresh to order and were very good (great sausages) also everything was nice and hot.
We had dinner in the hotel 2 nights choosing from there dinner menu, which changed each day, the menu was displayed in reception from early morning each day, the choices were good, quality of food and services excellent, there was a separate children's menu, which again had a good selection. All the food we had was great, served with a selection of vegetables, which was a different selection both nights, food was all served piping hot.
Overall I would say the Skiddaw is a great choice of hotel, nicely located in the centre of Keswick I would definitely stay again.
