Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Had the pleasure of staying here for 5 nights in November 2023 with a photography workshop. The hosts Gary and Susan are really friendly and helpful. The rooms were of a good standard with comfy beds and plenty of hot water for the shower. Breakfasts were excellent with a wide variety to choose from and fresh fruit daily. I have stayed in a few B&B's in Keswick and believe me the car park at LaurelBank is a huge bonus. Hope to be back sometime soon.

Stayed here with a group of 5 on a photography workshop. The location is excellent as is the car park. The owners are very friendly and helpful and delayed breakfast so we could go out early for dawn photography shoots and return later for breakfast. The breakfasts were cooked to order and were of the highest quality, especially the fresh fruit with yoghurt. I would highly recommend staying here.

Been going annually for several years. I've always received a lovely welcome whatever time I've arrived. The rooms are very comfortable but not overly large. There's a range of breakfast options and you can mix and match a bit if you want to. The service is excellent, nothing is too much trouble. The free off road parking in that part of the world is worth a lot, too. Enjoy.

Perfectly located B&B in the beautiful town of Keswick. Sue & Gary were very welcoming and knowledgeable of the area,providing a map for our walk and recommendations for places to visit/eat. The bedroom was well equipped with a TV, Wi-Fi and kettle etc and the most comfortable bed I have slept in. Breakfast was delicious with plenty of options,we went with a traditional full English and coffee! It was cooked perfectly by Gary. Would highly recommend a stay here and will be definitely be returning on our next visit time Keswick! Thank you Sue & Gary for a pleasant stay.
