My husband and I stayed with friends for 4 nights and had a lovely long weekend break here. The hotel staff are all very friendly and welcoming It is situated in a quiet location ideal for walking into Keswick town centre, takes about 15 mins.

My partner and I have stayed here on several occasions now, having tried four or five other places in Keswick over the last few years. This is easily the best in Keswick in my view. The location is great: easy to get to off the A66, a short walk down to the pubs and restaurants of Keswick and plenty of...

I stayed here for three nights with two business friends from India who wanted to see the Lakes. We loved the hotel - we were made very welcome, the food was very good, and the house has much character and great views. I would definitely stay here again.

Very clean however room very small..Good location, but if you stayed out late we felt there was a curfew. Breakfast very poor no fresh fruit and portions very small. Will not return

Me and my husband stayed at this hotel to celebrate our ruby wedding anniversary.Our room was very clean and spacious with a lovely garden view.We were made to feel very welcome and the food was good although the choice wasn't huge- our only small criticism.On the whole a very enjoyable stay.

Thank you for your review and kind comments. We enjoyed having you stay at Lairbeck and are glad you thought the food was good. We know that our dinner Menu is not huge but just for information we would mention that: We don't have a set menu with no choice at all (some hotels (at twice the price) do!). Our...

We stayed for 2 nights in early June, arriving on the Friday and leaving on the Sunday with a climb of Scafell in between. Our room was great and even better were the meals. Not a huge selection but we had 3 courses each evening and each was of really good quality. Breakfasts were also excellent - just right ahead...

We stayed at Lairbeck for a long Bank Holiday weekend to treat ourselves after a few days walking. It was a great choice; lovely room, good food and great location. Malcolm and the rest of the staff looked after us well and provided useful local information. We'll stay again when we're in the Lakes.

Beautiful location, fine food and wonderful hosts/owners. I'm sure it's not easy dealing with a single (fairly raucousat times) party of 6 couples but owners Malcolm and Jennifer were superb. The local scenery is stunning, there is no shortage of places to visit, and for anyone into fell-walking/climbing etc, this is the place to base yourself.

Great location, open fires, warm and comfortable, genial, caring hosts - it was just right for us. Delicous dinner and lovely breakfast. If I am fortunate enough to return to the Lake District this is where I will stay. A beautiful Victorian house with a history and a great future with these hosts .

Our walking group has stayed here for several years and always had excellent service. We are greeted in a friendly manner treated well with good food and courtesy. The staff and owners are helpful and obliging. The rooms vary from one small single, which is OK as one goes to the Lakes to visit not stay in the room, to...
