“Once Again - Just Excellent”
Reviewed May 22, 2012

As always another great stay at the Shemara. Richard and Fon are great hosts and treated us like old friends. Standard of rooms are excellent with all the facilities you require. Breakfasts are top class with plenty of choice. Anyone who is staying at the Shemara must sample some of Fon's delicious Thai evening meals - to die for. We hope to visit again soon.

We highly recommend Shemara Guest House. We have been coming to stay here since 2004 and always get a warm welcome from the very friendly yet professional proprietors Richard and Fon. The accommodation is very clean and comfortable. Food is excellant. We are sure you will keep coming back like we do!

First class guest house - will not be looking for any another B & B when in the Keswick area. Ideal location for the town and breakfast was top quality.

Room Tip: Room 3 with excellent view of the hills

Excellent value for money. the room was spotless and comfortable. Great location - just a stones throw from the centre of Keswick. My room had excellent views of the town and surrounding hills and although I didn't have dinner at the B&B, the smells of Thai cooking were fantastic - as was the breakfast (why no beans though?)! Came here by chance on the day, but will definitely stay here again and sample some of the mouth watering offerings I read on the dinner menu!

Really liked Shemara guest house. It's in quite convenient place, close to local to the town center. Rooms have wonderful view to mountains. House owners were very friendly, welcoming and helpful. Gave some advices about local restaurants and the best place to eat. Also the price of the rooms were very affordable. Just one small tip, because the house is on the corner of the street, if you decide to stay it Shemara house, make sure you'll come there as early as possible, because parking space is limited. Would recommend it

we stayed at Shemara for two nights after booking Theatre tickets for a show at Keswick lakeside Theatre to celebrate our wedding anniversary.
The guest house is situated in the own centre very close to all pubs and shops and a ten minute walk to the Theatre.
The guest house has its own car parking spaces at the front of the building, inside was clean and cosy, the hosts very friendly and helpful.
Room was very clean, warm and had excellent facilities with some nice personal touches, breakfast was also excellent.
Overall a lovely place to stay and we shall be back.
