Stayed for two nights on an excellent short break deal. The hotel was very well maintained and comfortable. Staff were efficient yet friendly and the dining room offered well cooked meals in a peaceful atmosphere. Our waiter Kevin was particularly good and worked hard to serve us with a smile. Our room was very comfortable with all we could need....

The Skiddaw Hotel ticked all the boxes for us: Located at the heart of Keswick with permit parking adjacent, a short walk to Derwentwater and a longer walk up Skiddaw starting right from the hotel. Comfortable, well decorated, well equipped clean room with King size bed and smart en-suite. All food was cooked and presented perfectly (best breakfast poached eggs...

This is one of those places I stay in on work trips I inwardly groan when I see where I'm booked. But sometimes I'm pleasantly surprised, and this was one of those. Situated in a central location in Keswick, this hotel benefits from having a public car park very close with guest passes. I was fortunate to be given a...
