Just returned from a trip to the Lakes and a lovely stay at Portland House. There are so many B&Bs to choose from in Keswick, so we were glad that this one lived up to it's excellent reviews. The House itself is lovely - set in a really quiet street, so we had a peaceful (silent!) night, and yet it's only a few minutes walk down into the town, so perfectly located. Our room was bright and spacious, with lots of little extra touches. Breakfast was yummy - thick, tasty bacon, and perfect poached eggs with lovely runny yolks - couldn't fault it! The owners are really friendly and helpful - lovely people, and cleanliness throughout was spot-on. We would most definitely recommend Portland House.
