The hotel is one of the two original hotels that existed in Keswick and it does have a feeling of authenticity about it. The rooms were nice and spacious, homely and comfortable, although the hotel seems to be going through some changes to give the place a little more TLC to keep it up to date. There are lots of original features which I particularly liked, and it keeps in theme with the Lakedistrict (as opposed to the out of character conservatory across the market square on the adjacent hotel).
The staff were personable and friendly, and the breakfast was generous too, always good for a day of walking and rowing. The price was very good and beats that of the hotels around it, including the hotels independent pub "The Queens Head" which was the cheapest pint in town, and had enough tables so that we could sit down and drink a well deserved pint.
I would stay again and recommend it to those who value originality and comfort, it's a hotel that isn't sleek and uber modern but it has a history, and great staff to make any stay memorable.
