Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 September 2013

We were welcomed by Joy with hot drinks and a slice of cake, most welcome after our long drive. Our room, Fairfield, was clean, and comfortable. Breakfast was well cooked, and a choice of times to suit us. Phil was a mine of information about places to visit, where to eat and routes to walk and willing to lend guides and maps. We've stayed in Keswick may times, this was our best stay by far.

We spent a long weekend at Claremont recently and thoroughly enjoyed it! We received a warm welcome and hot drink on arrival and the room was lovely with great views of the surrounding area. The room was spotless and very comfortable. Breakfast each morning was delicious and always served nice and hot! Phil and Joy were very friendly and knowlegdeable about the area-even lending us books for walks we had planned which was extremely helpful! Thank you for a great stay!

We consider ourselves very fortunate to have booked a room in Claremont House for a last minute overnight stay in Keswick. We stayed in "Skiddaw" which gave great views over Keswick towards the hills beyond. Joy welcomed us with a hot drink and cake and offered good advice on getting into the town centre - a pleasant 15-20 minute downhill stroll. The (twin) beds were most comfortable and although we faced the main Thirlmere road, the traffic disappeared by early evening so we had a peaceful night.
The breakfast was delicious and made even better by the appearance in the garden of a red squirrel!
All together a wonderful place to stay and we will definitely stay here again.

This was our first visit to the Claremont, but we will definitely be returning, we were welcomed with a hot drink and our rooms were spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated. We were given numbers for local taxis, nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was amazing, piping hot and plenty of choice. Excellent value for money, and a big thank you to Phil and Joy for their wonderful hospitality and treating us so spectacularly.

Wished we could have stayed longer, our stay was fantastic , Phil & Joy were the perfect hosts, could not have been better. Breakfast was most enjoyable with a great selection of cereals, fruits and choice of juices/ coffee & tea. For the walkers town is just a short walk away.

This was our third stay at Claremont House & once again we had a wonderful Time. Phil & Joy are the perfect hosts, knowledgeable & friendly, nothing is too much trouble. The breakfasts are delicious, fresh & cooked to perfection. Our room had the most delightful views over Blencathra, Latrigg & Skiddaw and the comfiest bed we have ever slept in. Spotless throughout this is a must if you are visiting Keswick.
