“Superb hospitality and service!”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

Babbling Brook guesthouse was booked by our children for us as an anniversary present. It is located within easy walking distance of the Town Centre and on one of the main roads heading into Keswick. Parking is available outside the guesthouse and across the road from it.

On our arrival, we met Paul, the owner, and we were given a brief introduction to the facilities before having our bag taken to the room. The room for our 3 night stay was the Double with en suite situated on the second floor.

The bed was very comfortable, there was plenty of storage space in cupboards and stands and the TV was wall mounted and easily viewable. Tea and coffee facilities were in hand with biscuits as well.

The en suite was a bit tight with toilet at one end, sink middle-ish and shower cubicle at the other side. Shower was a power shower and very good with great water flow!

We asked Paul for recommendations for eating out and he was extremely helpful and offered numerous options.

Breakfast was full English as well as cereals, toast, juice and tea and coffee available. I would highly recommend the full English breakfast as it is cooked to how you like! The bacon and sausages are extremely tasty!!

Paul and Angela were very helpful and pleasant with helpful tips on where to visit and had exceptional local knowledge.

We would definitely stay here again when the opportunity arises.

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
