Perfunctory welcome. Very small twin room and tiny shower room (unheated) not very good value for the price. Bed particularly lumpy, it's not usual to feel springs digging into your back at a self proclaimed "luxury" B&B. Locked out after midnight as only one key given so had to wake my partner to let me in. Good breakfast though and... More

Me and my Husband were attending a wedding in the Lake District and needed somewhere to stay pretty central. The Squirrel Lodge was so comforting. The breakfast in the morning was gorgeous! Just a five minute walk of that away from the centre, we enjoyed our stay very much.

We enjoyed 3 nights in the Squirrel Lodge last month. It's a great location, only a few minutes walk from the high street, and our room on the first floor was very nice, with a bay window and a comfy bed. The host was welcoming, breakfast was fine but not incredible. WiFi in our room was slow but reasonable. We'd... More

Stayed here 2 nights with breakfasts. Room & ensuite very nice. B&B itself very cosy. Food served really nice & vegetarian sausages available. Staff very friendly & hospitable. B&B in a good location, quiet street close to main centre. Only puzzling thing was its name "Squirrel Lodge"....there wasn't very much of a squirrel theme obvious to us. However would recommend...

Stayed for 3 nights during a trip to the Lakes. Pat was welcoming and friendly, the room was comfortable and breakfast each morning was great with a good selection of hot and cold food to fuel a days walking. The B&B is excellently located for exploring both the town and local walking routes. We have a lovely stay!

Very pleased from the hospitable staff, great breakfast, extremely clean, authentic setting. Also 5min walk from the center of Keswick. All in all, great option for staying in the area. I look forward to visit Squirrel Lodge again!

The guest house is quite compact.the bedrooms are adequate,but the shower room is on the small side in my opinion.The breakfast is excellent with cereals,yoghurts,and porridge on request,then you can have full English or the veggie variety or kippers.the place would benefit with a lick of paint in places
