Restaurant was excellent. The best service again !! Just love those two waiters on Sunday evening . Food was excellent as always . Chef needs to be knighted for his cauliflower soup !!! The conservatory was not good . Dogs welcome and we have a dog at home (so not a dog hater)

Returned for a second short visit to this hotel. Perfectly situated in the heart of Keswick town. Centrally situated for visits to all lakes. Very comfortable rooms although as ours was a basic it was rather small and had to move easy chair for access to wardrobe. Lovely modern

they have 4 parking spaces directly at the back of the hotel but you'll be very lucky to get one. You can park at the public car park also directly behind the hotel for £2 per night. You have to get a parking permit from the reception where you have to leave your credit card details in-case you run off with it !

"Pay little extra for front position. We overlooked back and bins!"
"Rooms at the back are quieter but all the rooms are lovely."
"Avoid Room 28 at all cost. Next to the noisiest oldest lift ever. Tiny room with a corridor of a bathroom."
"We had room 17, possibly above the kitchens, too hot and had the windows open in December to sleep comfortably."
"Try to secure room that is close to or near to the rear of hotel"
US$117 - US$229 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
