Reviewed January 17, 2014

We stayed between Christmas & New Year, our 2nd visit to Honister House but now with Carol & Ged the lovely new owners. The place was still immaculate, all linen pristine, the towels fluffy and the breakfast were cooked beautifully. A special mention needs to be made of Carol's gorgeous baking - each a different treat, stem ginger cookies, banana loaf, fruit cookies or flapjacks - it's a good job we walked those hills. Thank you for all your efforts and we look forward to returning.

Great b&b in the centre of Keswick, new owners Carol & Ged are really welcoming and made our stay very comfortable. Lovely breakfast and freshly homemade baked treats in our room every day, definitely will be back, thank you :)

I've stayed here twice now and have enjoyed having a quite night in out of the cold talking with the very friendly and accommodating hosts. Both rooms I've stayed in were cosy, comfortable and clean, all of this with the great location in town make an amazing b+b!

Stayed here for one night with a friend during the week in December and couldn't have felt more welcome! Carol and ged made us feel at home straight away along with some wonderful homemade banana loaf. Our room was bright, warm and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was great even for two picky vegans. Would recommend to anyone looking for a central location to explore Keswick and to anyone for a lovely getaway with great hosts. Will definitely return!

My wife surprised me with a night in Keswick for one night. The location is perfect bang in town. No parking on the facility but great that the owners have passes for the car park right in town. Breakfast was wonderful and tasty. The owners have one big table for breakfast which we dont usually like the idea of but we really liked it. Plensent conversation with the other guest. The room we were in was a medium size and had two twins joined together. It was lovely to sleep in such a big bed and the room was just about big enough to take it. It had all the amenities we could need and the banana loaf was lovely. Will happilly stay again.
