Just returned from another trip to the Acorn. Had a fantastic bank holiday stay. Breakfasts very tasty and set you up for the day. Hubbie had scrambled eggs on toast last morning and said they were tastiest he had ever had. We cannot wait to go back.
Staff very helpful and friendly.

We visited Acorn House Hotel for the second time at the end of July for our second wedding anniversary, having previously visited four years ago. It was still as lovely.

We got their best room at a reasonable rate (£176 for two nights at the weekend). Four poster bed, sitting area, TV, shower over bath, amazing view. In fact, depending on your personal exhibitionist tendencies, you can even sit on the toilet and look down the street! Haha! There is a relaxing lounge area with books, games and a piano if you fancy a tinkle on the ivories! I wouldn't recommend playing the huge gong in the hallway - even though a beater is provided...

The lovely town centre of Keswick is literally a two minute walk down the road and the whole place feels very safe to walk around at any time of day or night. The hotel is secure, with onsite parking (a huge bonus in Keswick!)

Breakfast was cooked to your specifications, or there was a choice of cereals, fruit, toast, etc.

All in all, I would happily return and recommend this to friends.

(Hint hint, husband dearest!)

We stayed for two nights at Acorn House for our first visit to the Lake District. Staff were warm and welcoming at all times, the room (attic room) was comfortable and clean. Located within walking distance of the town centre and very close to Lake Derwentwater. The cooked breakfast was delicious (we chose the vegetarian option). Would highly recommend a stay here.

6 of us (all adults) stayed in the Acorn House for 3 nights at the end of September. There were three couples so we needed three separate rooms which meant that booking a B&B was quite tricky. We had to go for larger establishments but we didn't want a hotel as such. We were there for a weekend of walking & relaxing.
Booking over the telephone with the property owners was easy & convenient. They (we spoke to both) were polite, friendly & efficient.
We arrived to find we'd been allocated 3 rooms on the top floor, up 2 flights of steps. The second flight of steps was very narrow & quite steep so perhaps unsuited to those with limited mobility. For us, however, it was fine. There is a large car park which accommodated our 3 cars comfortably. There's also a small car park the other side with 2 or 3 spaces.
Our rooms (saw all 3) were all decorated similarly. Very cosy with a large skylight set into the roof. Not too small but not massive, there was plenty of space to move around & an impressive amount of drawer & wardrobe space (very important for us girlies). The beds were of normal double size (I understand there are four poster bedrooms available on the first floor) which were quite small for us as we're used to a King size at home. But they were snugly made up with a sheet, thinnish duvet & coverlet. There were plenty of nice, thick pillows. There was a TV although the signal wasn't great & involved much ariel twiddling!
The shower room (en suite) was small but spotlessly clean. The shower itself was underpowered which was disappointing but I'm used to power showers & at least it still did the job & got us clean!
A pet hate of mine in hotels & B&Bs is a lack of mirrors (especially full length) but this place excelled itself with one full length mirror in the bedroom & two good mirrors in the shower room. There was enough light to see by although the reading lights above the beds could benefit from lower wattage bulbs as we were blinded whenever we tried to use them.
There was tea & coffee making facilities & yummy biscuits. There were nice touches like chocolates on the bedside table & local area guides available. Towels were white & fluffy & changed every day. Not strictly neccessary nor particularly environmentally friendly, but a nice touch anyway.
There was a breakfast room on the ground floor which served from 8-9am. This was a highlight with cereals & fruit juice available to help yourself to, followed by whatever you wanted as a cooked breakfast, even smoked salmon & scrambled eggs. This was freshly cooked with fantastic local bacon & not greasy in the slightest. Nothing was too much trouble, with the server even remembering that we liked a jug of tap water with our breakfasts.
There was a nice lounge area which we used to congregate in before going out for dinner. This B& B does not provide evening meals but this is not a problem as it is on the doorstep of the town centre.
This was one of the best aspects of the place. It was only a five minute walk into town, yet not noisy in the evenings. Very convenient for many walks too.
The only suggestions I'd make is to perhaps have a small bar to enable us to relax with a nightcap before retiring although I don't know how much this would cost in terms of effort & outlay. Also. the decor, for me, was just a little old-fashioned & a bit of modernisation (in keeping with the Victorian style of course) would be an improvement. There were slightly too many florals for my liking! But that's just nit-picking really.
A pleasant stay & we'd probably use it again if we had the same budget. However, we did see a couple of boutique-style places that took my fancy &, if we had the money & if it was just the two of us, we'd probably try those for a bit more luxury.

Stayed at Acorn for 1 night at May Bank Holiday, We were on the top floor in a attic bed room, which was recently renovated. It had a lovely en suite, was tastefully decorated and had plenty of storage and a good selection of hot drinks and toiletries.
The staff were welcoming and the breakfast was hearty with a good variety to choose from. It not often you get a choice of smoke salmon, not at Acorn prices anyway!
Location was great, a very short walk from the main high street and they had parking facilities, which is an absolute bonus in Keswick and as another bonus they had a small but nice garden, for if the weather was good.
I would definetly recommend
