“COMFORT AND CARE”
Reviewed 23 June 2012

I stayed here whilst completing the Cumbria Way and was very much welcomed by Linda and Stephen, eventhough I was quite wet and exhausted after walking all day. Linda made me a hot drink and came to sit and chat with me on arrival which was a lovely touch. The hosts could not have been more welcoming and the room/house any cleaner! The breakfast was superb...I had a Full Scottish which was delicious and the best quality ingredients used. It set me up for the day. I would recommend staying here to anyone and the rooms are so well equipped...nothing more could be done to make your stay more comfortable. Thank you x

Congratulations on completing The Cumbrian Way and thank you for your fantastic review. It certainly was a very wet weekend. We were more than happy to dry you out and make you as comfortable as possible. Hope you manage to visit us again for a relaxing break!

The guest was nicely located for the town centre. The rooms were immaculate and our bathroom newly fitted, good shower. Breakfast was great. Service was also superb, after a very wet bike ride the lady of the house took all our muddy clothes and dried them ready for the next day. I will visit again.

Thank you for your kind review. You may like to know that thanks to guests like yourself writing such nice reviews, we have just been presented with a highly prized Certificate of Excellence from Tripadvisor. We try our best to look after our wet guests; we get quite a few of them but we're not often asked to hose them down while fully clothed ! The lady of the house thanks you for remarking on how clean the rooms were and looks forward to your return visit.

Nothing was too much trouble for the owners, Linda and Stephen - extremely accommodating and were genuinely focused on making our stay as enjoyable as possible.
Location was ideal but it was the small things that really helped - for example we were cold and wet from mountain biking and they helped us all out by drying our kit, they put the heating on in our rooms as soon as we arrived home and helped us store our bikes
Breakfast was excellent - home made museli, good quality meats that were well cooked made it an even more enjoyable experience - although I did end up eating way too much
Rooms were immaculately clean and great for a weekend away
This is how B&B should be.

The rooms are immaculate and the breakfasts are delicious and quite ample - prepared and presented beautifully in a bright, cheery room (we even had sunshine!). The location is the best, quiet but within walking distance of anything you could possibly need in the town, on the water or while exploring the fells. Stephen and Linda are warm and caring hosts! They ALWAYS gave us perfect recommendations and helped us with our every need which ranged from parking (Stephen actually moved his car so we could slip into an end spot because we were parking challenged), printing out directions to the hospital in the next town, securing last moment dinner reservations and sharing their thoughts on the advantages of hike A over hike B. This is definitely a great place to stay - you will be quite pleased with your choice.

Once more we have to thank some marvellous guests for their kind review. We're pleased that you had a great stay with us. Thank you also for sending us your Betty Crocker pancake recipe. We're going to try it out veeeery soon. It was a pleasure to help you out where we could; we've been there ourselves so we know what it's like! Hope Tom is feeling better now. Take care.

its like being home from home. Our second stay at the avondale, recently refurbished classy but homely style. Couple extremenly friendly and food of excellent quailty. If we ever need to stay in Keswick we will definately return here, I doubt other B and B could improve on the friendly atmosphere here. It was like returning to see friends.

The location of the Avondale Guest House in Keswick, Cumbria, could not have been more perfect for walking to dinner restaurants and to hike on the many surrounding hills. We could park our car when we arrived and not drive again until we left.
Even better were Stephen and Linda, always helpful, friendly and always making the best suggestions. We had a medical emergency, and they directed us to the town hospital where we were helped. When we didn't have dinner reservations ona busy Saturday night, Linda sent us to a restaurant where we got the last table. Stephen's breakfasts were perfectly cooked to order and ample. More than anything, bothofthemwerealways pleasant and cheerful. You will enjoy your stay at Avondale in every way.

Thank you for posting your very kind review. You made it a pleasure to look after you. It was such a shame that one of you needed medical attention but at least we got it sorted out quickly. We really do hope that you'll make it back here some day. We'll save some Cumberland sausages especially for you!

Having booked last minute and only booked one night we were made to feel very welcome. Stephen and Linda were lovely and very helpful. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was lovely, set us up well for the day. Great location. We would definitely return to Avondale and would recommend it.
