Reviewed March 19, 2012

This is the second time we have stayed here. Its right in the town centre. the rooms are kept very clean and the breakfast is plentiful. All the staff are really helpful and friendly. A special mention must go to Iain the manager who goes out of his way to make sure your stay is as comfortable as possilble. Would definately stay there again and wouldnt hesitate to recommend to a friend.

We had a lovely stay at The Inn at Keswick. We received a lovely welcome when we checked in by the manager, saying Welcome to Cumbria, which was very nice. We were advised that once we were settled in our room, some fresh milk would be delivered, which was a very nice touch and is much nicer than those packets of milk. Our room was on the small side but was nicely decorated and comfortable. The pub was in a great location, just off the High Street and parking was easy enough to find in the nearby streets.
We eat in the pub on our first evening and I had the lamb hotpot and it was delicious and absolutely full of lamb. My partner had the steak pie which he enjoyed and again this was full of steak. We were served very quick which was great as we were starved.
The breakfast both days was very nice, cereals and pastries to help yourself too and toast brought to you when you sat down. There were a number of choices which would be cooked for you, we both had the full Cumbrian breakfast both days, and again this was lovey and fresh.
All staff were very friendly and we throughly enjoyed our stay there. We will hopefully return soon and would recommend this to anyone.

Our stay at the Inn at Keswick was an enjoyable one. Food fab, dog was made so welcome and other dogs too. Couldnt be more welcome to be honest. Wish I had asked to upgrade to a larger room but didnt know if there was a larger room that would accomodate dogs? (should have asked) as this would have made our 4 nights even more enjoyable, other than that staff were helpful they couldnt do enough. Just lv Keswick and the pubs and the different beers just a fab place. Thankyou Inn at Keswick. Thankyou for welcoming us and our dog Tigs :)))))

Room Tip: ask for a larger room if you have a biggish dog.

We visit this area annually in February to check that our caravan is still standing. This is our first stay at the Inn at Keswick. We had problems with the booking site. We booked a junior suite but on arriving were offered a standard room. We were finally given a family room. This was not an issue as it was very spacious. There are no parking facilities so you have to find street parking or feed the car park meters. Some local hotels appear to provide parking permits for the car parks but not this hotel. With the exception of the gentleman on reception (who was rather off-hand) all staff were very helpful. The food was excellent value. We enjoyed our stay and would stay next year if the hotel could resolve the parking issues

Booked online but then rang to enquire about upgrading the room and was told we had been allocated a large room anyway so didn't bother. However when we got there we were put into room 11 which was very small with barely enough room in the bathroom to use the toilet. It also had some torn wallpaper hanging off the wall. Disapointing start.
However, went straight back to reception to tell them about the problem and they moved us to room 8 which was far better, for no extra charge.
Food and beer was good. Liked the 1/3rds idea to try out different beers.
Good breakfast.

Stopped here on a recommendation for lunch. Food was excellent and served quickly. Beer was fantastic. Service was offhand and distant which was a shame as this hotel certainly has a lot going for it.
