Certificate of Excellence

Located within minutes walk of the town centre and great owners who made us feel welcome and gave lots of tips about the local area. Great value for money and clean, comfortable rooms. And the home cooked breakfast in the morning was great! B&B also has free Wi-Fi.

Stayed a couple of nights in Rm6. Great room, plenty of space. Keswick centre is literally a couple of minutes walk away.
Rod and Denise were superb hosts who went out their way to make us feel at home.
Look forward to visting the lakes again soon.

Just returned from a lovely couple of days staying at this great b & b. We were in Keswick for a family wedding and had the best of service from Rod and Denise. They made our party very welcome and couldnt do enough for us.
They are well on their way to No1 in Keswick!

If your 'B&B ing' in the Lakes a stay at Portland House is a must - Rod and Denise will make you feel very welcome and at home. Portland House is a superb victorian property with beautiful furniture and decor. Our room was spacious, spotlessly clean with soft fluffy towels and a very comfortable bed which gave us a good nights sleep. Breakfast was cooked to order - cumberland sausage (excellent) and freshly prepared fruit salads were our favourites. Rod and Denise have achieved infinite attention to detail at Portland House. Oh I forgot to mention homemade shortbread in our room - I will be practicing Denise's recipe at home!

Denise and Rod were fantastic, nothing was too much trouble, a great couple who invite you into their home and make you feel like part of the family. Rooms are light, spacious and cater for every need, the complimentary short bread and selection of teas was a lovely addition to the hospitality. The breakfasts were amazing, from fresh fruits salad, yoghurts and cereals right through to the sublime full cooked cumbrian (superb sausage and thick cut bacon, mmmmmm), all of which accompanied with the freshest coffee.

We can not wait to return and to be honest will never stay anywhere else in Keswick, thank you.

My husband and I had a lovely stay. Denise and Rod were very friendly and welcoming. The breakfast is delicious, just what you need before a walk around the lakes! Such a beautiful place and great location.

Friendly hosts, clean and well decorated room, 2 minutes away from the town centre, great breakfasts, not forgetting the gorgeous shortbread which was left in the room.
