Reviewed 27 December 2012

We had the whole guest house to ouselves, as there was a group of 10. It was fantastic. A short walk to the town. Plenty of places to see, eat and drink at. The rooms were comfortable and clean. A great place to stay.

Just back from three days in Keswick staying at the Anchorage. I had the ensuite single room which was perfect while my friend had one of the doubles which he thought was brilliant. Linda couldn't have been more helpful. Breakfast was superb, we had the traditional full english breakfast but there are a range of other choices. Linda also offers a packed lunch service which we used on the last day, next time we will use this service every day. The packed lunch was great and super value. There is off-road parking which is a real bonus. I really can't speak highly enough of The Anchorage and would recommend it to anyone. We will definitely be back early next year.

Just got back from a 5 night stay at the anchorage and had a wonderful break! I stayed in a single room...although a tad small it was brilliant! Plenty of storage, very clean and with en-suite shower room and toilet! The location was fantastic...a two minute walk to the shops and 5 mins to the lake. The service was also outstanding, Linda is very friendly and accommodating and made sure my stay was enjoyable and to top it all off there is private parking which makes life so much easier!! Thanks for a wonderful stay...highly recommended!

A lovely guest house in a great location. Close to shops, restaurants, etc, yet still nice & quiet. The room was bright & and airy. It had everything we needed & was comfortable. Breakfast was very nice & best of all, was our very friendly host Linda. Many thanks for an enjoyable stay!

We stayed at the anchorage for a long weekend in mid March and dispite the typical Lakes weather enjoyed our stay. Linda was very welcoming and helpful.
Both room number 2(double) and 4(Triple) were clean and satisfactory with views of the surrounding mountains. The only down side to the Anchorage is the slightly narrow car park if you have a large car(SUV).

Please have a look at the Breakfast tab to see some of our breakfast suggestions.
