“Very Impressed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2007

Just come back from a 3 night break at the Kings Arms. We stayed on a "Daffodil" break which was excellent value. Stayed in the 4 poster room which was very nice although bathroom small and shower weak. The staff were all very friendly and extremely helpful and the food was excellent and plentiful. The bar was cosy and the new Sports bar off the small courtyard was very well decorated and excellent for watching any sport. Advice - Park in the "Central" car park and walk up to the Main St by Woolworths and the "Jennings" pub. Would certainly recommend a break at this hotel.

From the moment I spoke to the ever-helpful manager, Garry, on the phone, I knew this would be a positive experience. Upon arrival, we were greeted by warm and friendly reception staff, and discovered that our room was a beautifully re-furbished room at the back end of the hotel. Indeed, the hotel itself is right in the middle of Keswick, which is extremely convenient!

The bed was massive and sooo comfortable, while the plasma TV and immaculate bathroom were welcome bonuses. The staff at the hotel were knowledgeable, helpful and always happy to make time for any questions we had.

The food in the restaurant was also good (we recommend the rack of lamb for mains - mmm!) with very healthy portions, and the packed lunches for walkers were also excellent.

Our only problem was with the sports bar situated directly beneath our room, but this calls last orders at 11pm anyway, so it didn't affect us very much.

Overall, an excellent establishment made even better by the wonderful staff.
