We booked this hotel based on the desire for a central hotel in Keswick, utilising 3 rooms for two nights.
Unfortunately in our eyes the hotel does not live up to the reviews previously posted. The rooms we used are small and dingy, poorly furnished and in desperate need of refurbishment. It is recognised that this is an old building, and therefore there are limitations to the physical space, however there is no excuse in failing to maintain the property in good order.
The main bar area felt dirty, rather like a run down pub the morning after a heavy session, with dirty/sticky tables in the breakfast area
We only ate breakfast at the hotel during our stay, which was adequate, but lacking in any imagination.
The lack of ventilation/cooling meant that windows had to be left fully open; the party goers of Keswick on a Saturday night put paid to any hope of a good sleep
Overall we felt this was poor value for the money. Will not be returning to this hotel!
