We arrived early only to be greeted with a pot of coffee, home made shortbread and the warmest welcome any one could wish for. The room was fantastic it certainly lived up to it's title of king size. Everything was spotlessly clean and the personal touches made it a brilliant stay. The food was fantastic, fresh fruit salad and a breakfast menu to spoil any one. Rod and Denise were very polite, personable people, they have good local knowledge and obviously enjoy there family business- they have it spot on! We honestly couldn't want for anything and that's why we will certainly be booking again.

I've just stayed the weekend at Portland House, and chose it because it had a single room, which was hard to find in Keswick.
The owners, Rod & Denise, were friendly and cook a good breakfast, and the place is quiet through the night despite being jsut two minutes walk from the main street. As a bonus, I had a great view of Latrigg from my bedroom window, although not all the rooms have that view.
The room was first rate, shower en-suite. I think I may have been the first person to stay in it since it has been refurbished, but the whole place is obviously kept in good condition. Comfortable bed with firm mattress. The owners really care about their business and I got the feeling the really wanted me to enjoy my stay.

We have stayed in numerous B&B's over the years and we certainly rate Portland House
with the very best. Everything about our 3 night stay was excellent!
Hosts (very friendly), rooms, cleanliness, breakfast choice/quality and locality were all first class.
Will we be staying again, would we recommend? Without any doubt or hestitaion.

We have just returned from a good walking weekend staying at Portland House B and B, situated in a quiet area, only a couple of minutes' walk from Keswick town centre and Derwent Water .Our rooms were spacious, comfortable and exceptionally clean, with good en suite facilities. Denise and Rod are great hosts and welcomed us with a pot of tea and home made shortbread on arrival and freshly cooked Cumbrian breakfasts for us from a wide breakfast menu, served in their light and airy dining room. They can provide gated off-road parking for bikes ( even some room for motor bikes) . We'd highly recommend it and hope to stay again soon.

I have never stayed in a cleaner place
my friends and I were welcomed with a warm drink and homemade shortbread on arrival.Our room was very spacious with a walk in shower.
The breakfast was very nicely cooked,lots to choose from and I never ate anything else until 5.30 pm and we went for a walk to Castle crag.
Rod and Denise made us feel very welcome.
We will definitely going back.
Portland House is very close to the town but without the hustle and bustle

My girlfriend and I spent a great overnight at the Portland House. The room was most adequate and the breakfast was filling. The landlords Denise and Rod are both knowledgable about the town and knew what restraunts were best to dine at.

A great stay in a beautiful area.
Thanks
