This is our first visit to Portland House and we chose this B & B based on our son's recommendation from tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. It is a lovely Victorian property with clean spacious rooms with lots of light. On arrival our hosts Denise and Rod made us tea which was lovely. The little touches Denise and Rod provide in their rooms such as the homemade shortbread which was provided every day on our refreshment tray and the tray with glasses and a corkscrew for a little drink after a hard day's walking made it a lovely stay. The location is only a few minutes walk from the centre of Keswick. The varied breakfast was beautiful with everything you could want - plenty of fresh fruit, yoghurts, cereals, fruit juices and breads to choose from. Also the full English Breakfast with every choice you could want and eat to a lighter one was cooked fresh to order for you by Denise every day. Breakfast was always served by Rod with some lovely friendly chat and humour and made all the guests feel so at home. Any help, knowledge or maps regarding walks or trips were all provided for you. We would thoroughly recommend this B & B to our family and friends and are looking forward hopefully to our next stay with Denise and Rod next year.
