Stayed recently, and it was pretty wet, so really learned to appreciate their 'dry room'. It was very helpful, wish more places would have it.

Room was lovely, clean, and quiet. The owners were very nice and friendly, possibly over-friendly? maybe just me being a grump, but would have been nice, sometimes, to be able to go in or out without having to stop for a quick chat. Oh, and if they put out biscuits on day one, it would be nice to have them replenished, but again, that's prob. just me being picky.

Breakfast was really great though. Location really central (about 3 min walk to town centre). Would stay again.

We booked in for 2 nights over the New Year period so we could go walking on New Year's Day. A very warm welcome from our hosts - the room was fine, on the top floor, and the bed was comfortable. Particularly outstanding is the breakfast - after fruits, cereals and yoghurts, the main meal to set you up for a day on the fells is superb. We have had loads of brekkies in a wide varieties of hotels, b&bs etc over the years and its difficult to judge which is specifically the best, but this was as good as anything we have had - traditional style, but at the same time inventive and very filling in the way it was served up. We will definately be back.

Lovely and clean. A very warm welcome from Dawn and Ken who can provide lots of information on the area. The breakfast was fantastic. Only a short walk to the shops and restaurants. We would definately stay again.

My wife and I stayed at The Winchester in Keswick earlier this month and I can honestly say it is one of the best Guest Houses we have ever stayed at. We were extremely impressed with every aspect of our stay. The place was exceptionally clean and well maintained. Our room was on the front and had great views.
Kens breakfasts were the highlight of our stay and far exceeded our expectations and way above any we have had elsewhere on our travels.
Ken and Dawn were great hosts and we are looking forward to a return visit very soon.
Great value for money.

We stayed here for two nights just recently. The accommodation was excellent & very clean. It was also central to Keswick. Facilities were great with tv & wifi. The owners were friendly & attentive without being intrusive - just the right level. The breakfast was fantastic - the best we have had from any hotel or b & b. None of the negative comments above were relevant during our stay - we were made to feel positively welcome. I would stay here again & recommend it to others.
