Sam from Nottingham

Stayed at the Babbling Brook Guesthouse for 3 nights on the 23rd may. Paul the owner made us very welcome straight away we even got chance to choose our en suite room both rooms where immaculate the guest house itself is spotless in every area but we decided on the room on the top floor it had lovely character with beams in the ceiling and views of the fells. Paul gave us a map of keswick and even took time out to write down good places to eat and drink during our stay in keswick. We had 3 great nights sleep at the babbling brook and the breakfast was just what you need to set you up for a day out walking. During our stay we did Scafell pike and Paul was more than helpful with any questions we had about the walk or any walk for that matter. A lot of this is said about a lot of guest houses in keswick but no other guest house as Paul is a great host he really can't do enough for you and it never feels like it's too much trouble. Babbling brook guest house is a excellent place to stay only wish we could have stayed longer. Will definitely return.

A lovely B&B, room was very spacious. The owners were very welcoming and helpful. Full of ideas of how best to spend a very hot weekend in Keswick.
Breakfast was lovely, full English and very filling.
The room was much better than I expected. The bed was lovely and big and the room itself was clean and modern.
We had one of two rooms that shared a bathroom. Before arriving I was worried about sharing a bathroom with other guests but once I got there it was not a problem. If you do have a problem with sharing, make sure you ask in advance, about which room you would be getting.
Perfect weekend, no problems at all. We will definitely stay.

We stayed at the Babbling Brook Guest House for one night, so we could attend an evening function in Keswick. Didn't really know what to expect, but as soon as we got there the owner, a Geordie lad made us feel at home. The room was as good as any 4 star hotel and the English breakfast was superb. The house is positioned right across from the river and a park, and is a 2 minute walk from the centre of Keswick, perfect for anyone, but especially walkers and lovers of the Lake District like my wife and I.

Room Tip: Room number 1, big bed and superb view out of the window.

Just returned from a very wet but enjoyable weekend in Keswick. Stayed at the Babbling Brook and cant fault it. Booked the Superior room and it was clean , spacious and the bathroom spotless.
Paul was great, really friendly and couldn't do enough for us. His recommendations of where to eat were spot on; The George Pub does fabulous food and The Pedlar was a delight with a fabulous atmosphere and great live music.
We were made to feel really welcome and will definitely be returning (once we've had time to dry out!!!)...Karen &Chris

On arrival there was no one in had to ring a number. Room was very small and very dusty. Lots of noise with been on the main road. Only a few coat hangers. No hair dryers. The only good thing was was the cooked breakfast. Wouldnt stay again.

PaulMax M, Owner at Babbling Brook Guesthouse, responded to this review, 10 January 2014
As we also have another business in Keswick (which guests get 10% discount) we cannot always be at the guesthouse due to the variety of times that poeple arrive, that said we do leave a phone number & key so guests can at least come in from outside and on average we then arrive within a minute or so later!
Each room gets a really good clean down after each visit, you just have to read other reviews, the dust will only arrive from making the beds when the starch comes from the new sheets and maybe settles later on the furnature.
There are at least 6 coat hangers in each room as stays this time of year are normally one night stays as so in this case!
Hair dryers are availbale on request, any issues you juat have ask. We are a family run guesthouse providing a cosy comfortable stay for all guests.
