“Unbeatable and we shall return”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

Extreemly welcoming and pleasant hosts made our stay in the lakes perfect.
The bedroom and shower room were spotless clean and tidyly maintained each day.
Breakfasts were perfect with a fabulous aray of different types of food that would suit everyone and there was always pleasant conversation, including a laugh each morning.
Marion and Peter found out that it was our Golden wedding day, on the Saturday, and treated us to a lovely card baloon and present, something we shall never forget.
We can only thank this remarkable couple for making an excellent holiday even more special for us.

Very welcoming hosts as usual. The number of returning guests says it all really.
Beautiful house that is just a stones throw from both the town centre and the great outdoors, immaculate rooms, fabulous breakfasts and lovely hosts. Only problem can be the parking which is on street, but we have always managed somewhere close.

Always a warm welcome from Marion and Peter. Rooms spotless and very comfortable, just what's required after a hard day on the fells, and those little extra treats on the tea tray, just perfect. Always
a substantial and filling breakfast. For me, their provision of an accessable drying room is an essential. I have stayed there six times in last 18 months, certainly the best B&B in Keswick if not Lake District park.

A very warm welcome is guaranteed at Goodwin House. Marion is a super host whose attention to detail is precise and painstaking. This goes for the lovely table decorations in the breakfast room, the well appointed bedrooms with the little hidden extras like a piece of cake, extra fruit, sweets galore and a plentiful supply of coffees, chocolate and fruit teas. As a walker, I was supplied with detailed weather advice, a print off from the local meteorological office and any number of maps and guides. The house has everything to make a short, or even longer stay, enjoyable. It was my second visit and I have already booked my third. It comes with a high recommendation, surely much more than a home from home. Thank you for such excellent service!

We have stayed with Marion and Pete since they took over Goodwin House 16 years ago and we have never considered staying anywhere else. The bedrooms are more comfortable than most top class hotels and selection of drinks and biscuits are brilliant, have to mention Pete's breakfasts which are legendary. You will always get a great welcome and want to return to Goodwin House. Audrey H

Marion and Peter are the perfect very welcoming hosts, and it's no surprise therefore that I've stayed at their excellent b and b at least four times. Not only are the rooms very comfortable, with everything you could need, but Marion has the ability to think of special touches which make Goodwin House stand out from the crowd. Little sweets, bowls of fruit and chocolates in the bedroom for example. And then there's the breakfast - fantastic in every respect. The quality, variety of items and quantity can't be faulted. I'll definitely be staying again - hopefully at the 2014 Keswick Mountain Festival.

Room Tip: No special tips - no real traffic to disturb sleep in a side street in Keswick,

Always a pleasure to stay with Peter and Marion in such a warm, friendly and clean B&B
With hearty food, spacious rooms and a central location, a truly enjoyable experience where the hosts provide little extras which make a big difference.
Numerous visits, never disappointed.
Always eager to return.
