This was my first time staying in a B&B and my partner and I were very impressed. The room we had was a lot bigger than we had expected, and was very clean, and seemed to be recently decorated. The en-suite washroom with shower was immaculate, and new. Both Paul and Melissa were very helpful with tips about things to do in the area. Breakfast was good too - that banana porridge was amazing! I've never slept so well - even with the windows open, you don't hear a thing in that neighbourhood!

Just had a lovely short break in the lakes first time we'd been to the area so we were very grateful to Paul and Mellisa who took time to tell us where the areas walks and eateries where. My legs are aching a bit but the scenery around Keswick are truly stunning! Coming from North Wales I thought that you could not compete with our scenery on our doorstep but I think the lakes did and possibly beats it !?!?! Our hosts made us feel very welcome and so did Monty the Dalmatian!! The rooms were very comfortable and spotlessly clean and breakfast was fantastic!! If we ever go back to the Lakes which I certainly think we do we will definitely go back to Lynwood Thanks again to Paul Mellisa and Monty from Paul Ann Katie Tomos

Friendly, knowledgeable hosts whose lovely house makes an excellent base (central but very quiet) to explore everything that Keswick has to offer. Clean, comfy and welcoming, with a beautifully presented breakfast that is very satisfying without being heavy at all.

Stayed here for 3 nights while walking with my Mum and Dad in the Lake District. Both Paul and Melissa were warm, welcoming and accommodated our special breakfast requests willingly and with good cheer. The rooms were clean, the beds comfortable and the bathrooms modern with a ready supply of hot water. And the breakfast was great - fresh fruit, juices, cereals, porridge with fruit and a really well cooked fry-up every morning that wasn't at all greasy. Fabulous!! Huge thanks to you both.

We started our C2C this year at the Lynwood Guest House, and stayed there on the 1st, 2nd and last nights of our holiday. The last day was a last minute decision, and they accommodated this without any problems. The B&B was lovely, the breakfasts really set us up for a day in the saddle, the rooms were very comfortable and they were really good about storing the bikes out of the way at night, us leaving our cars parked just round the corner (always a consideration for C2C'ers) and filling water bottles for us before we set off. Lovely people, friendly atmosphere and there are plenty of good places to eat in Keswick, so a perfect location all round. Would definitely recommend it.

Room Tip: 2,3 and 4 were all lovely, can't really comment on the rest, but all rooms seemed comfortable an...

I like staying here. It’s been a regular holiday haunt of mine for years. There’s always a warm welcome that will turn your hosts Paul and Melisa into fast friends. My first visit was in July 2003. So if you’re new to a guest house in Keswick, I can certainly recommend the Lynwood for a first and lasting impression, along with the entire Lake District of course.

The location is a good one. Not so close to the town centre as to disturb you from a nights sleep and not very far away to explore the shops, parks, woods, river and the lake.

The rooms are very clean, all en suite, double or single with some very comfortable beds. Along with digital TV there’s also a complimentary kettle with a set of biscuits and beverages. Pets are welcome and dietary requirements catered for. So whether your lactose intolerant, vegetarian or need to eat gluten free, there’s always something for you on the bill of fare. A regular breakfast ranges from a full English to specialities like smoked kippers; smoked salmon and scrambled eggs to croissants. All very nice and all free to mix and match as you please. In addition to starters like fruit salad, fruit juices, cereals and yoghurts; coffee, tea and toast come as standard.

Should you feel the need to surf the web or network socially, Internet access is on the first floor and if you're driving, guest ID cards are available to park in a street nearby. However a real plus for me is that even when I’ve gambled on the weather and lost, the service and help from Paul and Melisa has always been first rate and that’s one of the great things that has kept me coming back here year after year.
