Reviewed February 16, 2014

Very friendly, great atmosphere and superb food.
The best restaurant I've been to in a long time. The cosy dining area promotes chat among fellow diners which is a refreshing change.
Jungle curry highly recommended (spice lovers only...)

We shall return!!!

We have tried on a few occasions to book a table at this very popular restaurant but failed as they were fully booked. Having eaten there last night with friends of ours, I can fully appreciate why it is so difficult to book a table as the food is simply fantastic. A wide menu with plenty of choice, we will need to return to be able to try more of their wonderful, authentic Thai food. The service and friendliness of the staff was second to none. We'll be back !

Having just returned from The Shemara Guest House over the New Year period with my partner. Wow . Excellent friendly greeting on arrival from Sayfon and having read some of the reviews about Richard expected a Basil Fawltyesque character but was the complete opposite. Both were great and extremely helpful. I'm not normally a fan of B and B's but this one is well worth the visit. Plenty of complimentary drinks in room inc bottled water, Ironing facilities and Shoe brush and polish. Even got box of chocs on NYE..An excellent selection of choices for breakfast and great service from Sayfons daughter and very well maintained and clean room. As for the negatives I've read Re Rules in the room we felt they wasn't offensive and probably necessary as to maintain the excellent condition of the room.
All in all a very good stay apart from the weather but what would expect in the lakes in winter.
Back soon for more walks

Was greeted with a friendly smile ..... unfortunately the Thai restaurant was fully booked, worth a return visit though! The room was very clean and the bed was very comfy. The breakfast was so lovely and plenty served. Thank you for a a great visit and hope to see you soon!!!

We had an overnight stay here and we booked to eat in the restaurant. What a wonderful authentic, homemade Thai meal it was! I had the jungle curry and was warned that it is spicy. It certainly was but the flavours were amazing. My husband had the prawn special. The lady who owns the guesthouse is lovely and friendly. It was a pleasure meeting her. As for the guesthouse, it is very clean, has all the necessaries and although small, is very welcoming. Would recommend this place to everyone.

This was our fourth stay at Shemara, and it was every bit as good as we'd come to expect from previous visits. The breakfasts are excellent, and the Thai meals are an absolute delight - better than the Thai restaurant in Keswick.

Richard and Fon are warm and friendly hosts. The rooms have always been spotlessly clean. The food is excellent, and it's right in the centre of Keswick. What more can you ask?

On arrival, met by Sayfon who is absolutely delightful, always smiling and very polite as are the rest of the team at Shemara. Had Thai meal here one evening which was thoroughly enjoyable and good value. Breakfast very good with quality ingredients and ample portions. I would recommend this B&B to anyone visiting Keswick and shall certainly stay here on future visits to the town.

Room Tip: Stayed in room 3 situared at the front of the building. Spotlessly clean room with lovely, tasteful...
