We have stayed with Rod and Denise in November. January and February, we will never go back to pub accommodation. The guest house is spotlessly clean in a great location 3 minutes walk into centre of keswick. The rooms are very comfortable and spacious with lots of extras such as tea and coffee making facilities and excellent homemade shortbread. Breakfast choice is very varied and is cooked to order so is always hot. Rod and Denise are very friendly and welcoming and if you are there on a very wet weekend like we were Denise even dried wet walking gear for us. We will always stay here when we are visiting Keswick.

The guest house is run by a very friendly and helpful couple who greet you with a warm welcome (and a pot of tea with homemade shortbread). Stayed during very cold weather and the heating was left on all night, very warm and comfortable throughout. Lovely breakfast, good choice, freshly cooked. Good location, a 5 min walk from the centre, hence no noise and easy to park. Couldn't fault it and will definately return.

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.

Excellent Guest House. Had a specious king sized room and mother-in-law had a comfortable single room. Beds were also comfortable which was important to me. Hosts Denise and Rod were welcoming and friendly and made us a cup of tea as soon as we landed. Deocor is fresh and clean and hygene standards are immaculate. Really good breakfast with no supermarket rubbish here. Fresh meat from the local butcher. May find a guest house £5 a night cheaper but standards were high and well worth the little extra. Husband loved Rods sense of humour.

Denise and Rod were warm and friendly from the outset, giving good advice regarding Lucy's surprise adventure walk of a lifetime. Spacious, clean room; delicious breakfast; convenient five minute walk from town and an all-round lovely stay.

Another visit to Rod and Denise's lovely guest house. This time a group of ramblers took over the whole house and were made to feel like it was our home!
Greeted with smiles, shortbread and a warm place to stay followed by lots of laughs, gossip, good breakfasts, great packed lunches (including Denise's cake again!) and the knowledge that you were being looked after while fumbling around the lake district.
Restaurants were again reccommended and food ideas swapped! As well as the good outdoor converstations about the lakes, shopping and local area.
I'm already looking forward to our visit next year!
