“Return of the prodigal sons”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

An old school friend and I stayed here for a couple of nights in May after not visiting for over a decade (busy lives). The warmth of welcome, standard of accommodation, tasty breakfast and helpful advice hasn't dwindled one bit in our absence. Close to the town so you can wander in for some post-walk refreshment, great views from our top floor window. Only thing they couldn't do was wind back the years for our tired legs! Would recommend to any walkers who want a friendly place to stay in Keswick.

Our second visit to this friendly and well kept b&b, great food, relaxed and well informed owners. Very clean and well maintained, particularly good for walkers and those who want to be out on the hills. Recommended.

This was my first stay in a guest house in a long time. As im a Motorhomer. I was very pleased with the service. The owners were very welcoming, and very helpful. There was plenty of acvice about the area, and things to do.
Lovely breakfast which you could pick which parts you had, lots of tea, cereal and orange to keep you going well into the day.
The room was really clean, I did not find an ounce of muck anywhere.... tea and coffee. Everything worked and was en suite.
Wi Fi was OK...a little slow. Was excellent value for money and was really well located for the centre of town and walks. I will definitely tell everyone that its a great guest house for your Lakes Holiday.

Room Tip: You could get a room with a view

Harvington House ticks all the boxes for the traveller & a good base to explore this area of the lakes.
Good quality breakfast with seasonal produce sourced locally is a great start to any day.
Rooms are clean, comfortable, and centrally located in a quiet back street area of town with pleasant Victorian houses & B&B's.
The owners pride themselves on their service provided and going the extra mile to make any stay more enjoyable. Something a lot of hotels need to take note of.
A short walk from the centre of Keswick.
Good value & highly recommended.

Room Tip: Note not all the rooms are en-suite Note street parking, so it's pot luck on finding a space cl...

I couldn't recommend the Harvington House B&B enough. The B&B itself is in an ideal location, 2 minutes walk from the centre of town. The rooms were very comfortable and clean, and the breakfasts were amazing.
What really makes this B&B first class though is Graham and Gina, the hosts, they couldn't do enough to help you. They are knowledgeable, polite and eager to help. I had some car issues while there and Graham spent well over an hour helping me get sorted.

Room Tip: It doesn't actually have a fitness centre, but I can't seem to get it to unselect a rating.

Just returned from a lovely Easter weekend in the lakes and we were extremely impressed with this B&B, which we booked on the basis of the great reviews it had already received on trip advisor. The room we had was lovely, with nice little touches such as the toiletries in the bathroom and the selection of teas in the room. What really makes this place stand out though are the hosts Gina and Graham. From the moment we walked through the door they were friendly and helpful, with loads of great advice about places to eat and things to do. This even extended to helping us jump start our car on the morning we left after we ran the battery flat. Would not hesitate to recommend this to others and will definitely be staying here again next time we're in Keswick.

Just stayed for one night on a quick photographic trip, but the rooms were immaculate and the owners were very friendly. Superb breakfast and almost smack in the middle of keswick, best value hotel I have ever stayed in!
