Just come back from a lovely stay at the Portland Guest House. The owners, Denise and Rod, were very welcoming and genuinely interested in making our stay as good as possible. They were friendly and provided helpful advice on where to go for walks and food when we asked. The room was a good standard with a very comfortable bed. There were some nice little touches too like homemade shortbread with the coffee and tea in the room and the room was well equipped with items from wine glasses and a corkscrew to shower caps and face wipes. Secure and fast Wifi was available to finalise our itinerary!
There was good choice in the breakfast where you can choose what to have in a full English or choose other options like scrambled egg and salmon on an English muffin.
The b&b is just a few minutes walk to the centre of Keswick. This was good for us as we were very close to the centre whilst still being in a quiet area.
Overall we really enjoyed our stay and couldn't have asked for a better base to explore Keswick from. If we came back to Keswick we would book here again.
