Reviewed 15 April 2014

Returned today after a 2 night stay here and we could not fault it. In fabulous location, we stayed in room 4 which was lovely and spacious,overlooking the pitch and putt area, very clean and the bed was very comfortable. Bathroom was on the small side but compact and modern and again, very clean. Breakfast was cooked to order and unlike a previous reviewer my scrambled eggs were delicious! Would also recommend the eggs benedict. The most outstanding benefit of Lakeside House is their staff. At all times they were so friendly and accommodating and made us feel very welcome. Would highly recommend a visit.

We were a little disappointed, mainly because of some of the 'small' things that were missed.

First the good things. The room was clean and the bed was reasonably comfy (if a little too soft for me). The breakfast room is lovely, and of course the location is great (2 minute walk to lake and to the theatre), though there is no lake to view from the hotel. The bacon and sausages at breakfast were lovely. Decent poached eggs too. Service was friendly, efficient and good. Toiletries in the bathroom were locally sourced and smelt lovely.

The little things. Well the littlest thing was the room. A bit too small. Then the shower... it's configured such that you cannot set it running from outside, so you invariably get blasted with ice cold water for a few seconds before the water warms up. A bottle of filtered water is provided, but 1 bottle isn't really enough. The room was a bit too hot at night. The selection of teas, coffees and biscuits etc was very limited - far more so that one expects in a boutique hotel. I think a few special biscuits and other things would have a gone a long way to making it feel more special rather than a travel lodge selection. Similarly, at breakfast, there is just marmalade or strawberry jam, or honey from a plastic squeezy. Again, not in the luxury category. One morning we made the mistake of the scrambled eggs. These were very bad - grey and rubbery. Coffee is not a personal pots but from a filter jug that is brought around.

A pleasant stay and probably a par above other Keswick B & B's but could be more. As it is I feel its just slightly overpriced.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review of your stay. We always appreciate feedback be it good or areas we could improve on. We are a guest house offering boutique style accommodation and as such perhaps the "services" you were expecting within the rooms were unable to be met. With regards to breakfast we sincerely apologise that you were dissapointed as this is an area we are particularly proud of and we hope that should you stay with us again we can improve on this. We encourage all of our prospective guests to visit our website where they will find a virtual tour of each room along with room views and still photos to ensure they are fully aware of the difference in room sizes and as such room prices. We work hard at LakeSide House to ensure that all of our guests enjoy their stay and we are sorry that this was not the case with yourselves.

This is the cleanest and modern b&b we've stayed in. Refreshing to stay somewhere of such quality without paying extortionate prices. Great location near Derwentwater lake and 2 min walk to centre of Keswick. Highl recommended!

What a great place from the moment we arrived until we left after three days the staff were fantastic.
The location must be the best in Keswick and they provide a breakfast to match.
The photos on the website are good but the place in real life is even better.
We will definitely stay here next time we are in Keswick 100%
Thanks

Room Tip: worth paying the extra for the best rooms if you can - we did a 3 for 2 nights midweek deal

We were given a warm welcome when we arrived for out 2 night stay. All of the staff were very helpful. We were in room 2 which is excellent with great veiws over the park, the room has a very relaxing feel to it and is also very comfortable. The breakfast was really good and there is plenty of chjoice. The hotel is in a very good location, only a couple of minutes walk into the centre and plenty places to stop for a coffee or a beer on the way. We will definatley stay there on our next visit to Keswick we had a great time.

Lakeside House ticks all the boxes. It's perfectly located for the town and the lake; it's beautifully furnished and immaculately clean; the staff are helpful and friendly, and the breakfasts are delicious. Couldn't recommend it more highly!
