This was our first time in Keswick and the guest house was easy to find and situated in a great central location with everything within walking distance. Parking on local streets wasn't an issue although we did leave the car for the whole of the weekend.
The owners had great local knowledge and more than enough recommendations regarding activities for the day and eating out on a night. Within minutes of arrival our bags were wisked upstairs ahead of us and a fun, cheerful and fully informative introduction to the guesthouse and local area was delivered. Linda recommended a neat 15 minute walk to a nearby viewing point with excellent views of the Lakes and Keswick which really set up the weekend.
The owners are superbly friendly and approachable with stories of their own experiences and what seems like a genuine interest in your own. There friendly approach to hosting people within the guesthouse really added personality and an additional dimension to the stay.
The guest house was very clean and in a great decorative state with everything described on the booking websites. The bed was extremely comfortable after a hard days walking it was just difficult getting out of it in a morning. The shower was hot! What else can you ask for?
Yum .. based on trip advisors reviews of breakfast I couldn't wait to get stuck in and the home made breakfasts didnt let down at all. My partner throughly enjoyed his Macmuffin and Scottish breakfasts and the black pudding is not to be missed. There is something the caters to everyone and every appetite.
This was a great guest house that we would definitely check into again.
The only negative is the wifi, it is perfectly adequate for catching up with emails etc however it isnt the best for video streaming. The signal is much better in the communal living area than the third floor, my advice, get off your phone/tablet and have a chat with these wonderful people instead!
