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.

A truly lovely stay, felt completely looked after by Stuart and Catherine in their gorgeous guest house. Perfect location for us to travel to a nearby wedding and a day in to Keswick. Breakfast was absolutely perfect, plenty of choice and cooked to perfection. The extra touches were so lovely, with homemade gin and biscuits available. The access to a nearby spa was a perfect start to our morning and we very much appreciate this.

Fabulous B&B in a great location. Stuart and Catherine are the perfect hosts providing professional and personal service. Accommodation was excellent, breakfast was a treat with lots of choice including homemade jams, etc. The best B&B we've stayed in for a long time so definitely return. Thank you Stuart and Catherine

What can we say.... we would definitely recommend a stay at Lake View, Portinscale. From the minute we arrived we was made most welcome, Catherine greeted us with a smile then offered home made cake and a nice cup of tea which we had sitting in at the relaxing lounge in front of an open fire. The room was lovely with views of the lake, it was spotlessly clean with coffee/tea making facilities home made biscuits and a nice touch with home made gin which was amazing. Breakfast was plentiful with a good choice of food, and nothing was too much trouble. Each morning we was greeted by either Catherine or Stuart who genuinely seemed pleased to see us so always felt comfortable to be there. There was off road parking and we was allowed to leave our car there for the whole stay as we walked wherever we wanted to go. Keswick was only a 15 minute walk away. Portinscale has a local tea room and a local pub - the Farmers Arms which was a few minute walk away from the guest house which served good food and the service was brilliant. We shall return to Lake View.

A real treat of a place. Lovely bedroom with extra touches like the daily cookies in the jar. Lovely lounge with fire. Superb breakfasts to set you up for the day. Excellent base for walking around Borrowdale. Stuart and Catherine were warmly welcoming. I would not hesitate to (a) return here again and (b) recommend this guest house to my family and friends.

SUPERB.................. A hidden gem Catherine and Stuart are amazing hosts, with superb rooms with those little touches that make your stay so special. Excellent location in the quiet area of Portinscale, within easy walking reach to Keswick. Just had our second visit, unusual for us as we do not normally visit a place twice. Thank you Catherine and Stuart, quality stay

A warm welcome with tea, home-made cake and a roaring fire was the introduction. Accommodation beautifully appointed. Breakfast - just perfect. The bacon and Cumberland sausage amazing quality. Delicious muffins to accompany smoked salmon available. Fresh fruit salad and other fruits as well as yoghurts and selection of juices on breakfast bar. Attention to detail … home-made cookies, home distilled gin in the room (we didn’t try it but it was there) and toffees In a jar. Bathroom toiletries (shampoo and shower gel) included. The owners welcome you into their beautiful home, are professional and available but not intrusive. We really hope to return soon. It was a most wonderful find / recommendation.

Greeted very warmly by one of the hosts, bedrooms are lovely and we are bed snobs and was over the moon, so comfy. Bathrooms are also gorgeous. Hosts are very helpful with where to go and what to do, even got a map out to show us etc! Definitely went the mile to let us know where to go and what to do. Breakfasts in the morning were also 10/10, one of the best full English’s we’ve had! Definitely would visit again if we go to Keswick , also going to recommend to everyone!

A lovely guest house, lovely breakfast with fantastic friendly hosts and nothing was too much trouble. Great location with a nice walk in to Keswick and easy access to more adventurous walks. Can't recommend highly enough if you are lucky enough to be in the area.

Fabulous B&B. We were made to feel so welcome. All the little touches really made the stay lovely. Homemade gin, biscuits and cake in our lovely bedroom. A varied breakfast with again homemade jams/marmalade & muffins. The location is so perfect for exploring and walking. There is a path that takes you into Keswick which is only a mile away. Our two night stay made me realise just how beautiful the lakes are even with rain!
