We enjoyed a 2 night stay at the Allerdale House in October.
We found Helen and Tony to be friendly and welcoming hosts, with plenty of helpful suggestions for walks and places to eat.
Our standard double was on the top floor. It was a clean, comfortable and well-appointed room for the price. Small niggles would be that the "power" shower wasn't all that powerful, probably due to low water pressure at the top of the building, and we could hear our next-door neighbour snoring at night!
The breakfast was excellent - great choice of hot and cold items - and the full-cooked breakfast was one of the best we've had for a long time.
On-site parking was a real bonus and as it's only a 5 minute walk into the centre of Keswick we didn't need to use our car during our stay.
We would definitely consider staying here again, but would probably try and book the superior room.
