Reviewed 8 June 2014

Just returned after a three night stay. Having been coming to Keswick many times over the last 30 years I can honestly say the Lakeside House is the best my wife and I have stayed in. We were allocated room 3 which was spacious, spotlessly clean and a power shower. The view from the window looked across the pitch and putt all the way to the western fells. Breakfast was excellent with a good choice available. All the staff were extremely friendly. Probably not the cheapest in town but you get what you pay for. If you are planning a visit to Keswick I definitely recommend Lakeside House.

Thank you both so much for such a fantastic review and such positive comments and feedback. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. We are indeed fortunate to be located so close to both the Lake and the Town Centre and the views from the rooms and of course the dining room are stunning at whatever time of year to choose to come up. Your feedback regarding the breakfast and service we offer is greatly appreciated and we have shared your review with all of the staff and thank you for taking the time to leave your review.

This bed and breakfast was perfect for our honeymoon. The owner was very friendly and welcoming, the room (3), had a beautiful view and was very clean, spacious and comfortable with the best shower I have ever used! The owner very kindly chilled our champagne and there was also a water and ice machine on the landing. We really liked the 'green' ethos of Lakeside house as they provided local, natural toiletries and did not use those wasteful little bottles. The breakfast was delicious and there was loads of it. We are planning to go back this Summer and would highly recommend it.

I just had to write of our stay having only returned today from Lakeside Guest House, we as a group of 4 adults from Wales were extremely well looked after during all aspects of our 3 night stay, all the staff were very good with Lindsey being a natural host of the highest quality. Great food, very comfortable beds, and a very homely atmosphere.
Keep up the good work, I hope this helps to inspire others to enjoy a very worthwhile experience.

Room Tip: Lovely views from all rooms, we stayed in rooms 1 and 12 which were more than ample size wise.

We stayed at Lakeside House for a second time, May 2014. This time we took my parents, who have travelled the world far and wide. They said that Room 2 was the nicest suite they have ever stayed in. Lakeside has more of a hotel feel about it, than a B and B. It is spacious, and the staff are extremely welcoming, but never intrusive. There are many very nice touches, high quality furnishing throughout, a comfortable sitting area, a stylish breakfast room, stunning Lake District photography, ice machine and fridge on the landing, high quality toiletries. If you are in two minds about whether or not to choose this B and B, I would recommend it highly. You won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: Room 2 is a beautiful, comfortable, very spacious suite, with views (and binoculars) that would keep...

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review and for such positive feedback. We thoroughly enjoyed having you stay with us again at LakeSide House and were so pleased that your parents enjoyed their stay and in particular their room. Room 2 is ideally placed in the house as it has the unobstructed views of the mountains but also benefits from the second large bay window looking up towards the Theatre by the Lake and Derwentwater. To receive feedback like you have given is brilliant and we have shared your comments with the whole team. We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.

Lakeside House is a sleeper of a place. Tucked away from the town center literally on the lake side of town-this is a quiet getaway. The ba-a-a-ing of lambs gently woke us mornings. The views were spectacular of mountains and the Hope Park. Great staff. Nice breakfasts. Comfortable bedding. Contemporary furnishings in an antique structure!

Stayed here from 13th-16th May and had a fab stay. We were in room 2 which was spacious, decorated to such a high standard not like usual b&bs, the views of the mountains were spectacular even had binoculars provided, bottled water selection of teas coffee everything you needed. Bathroom was great, big fluffy towels, amazing power shower, stocked with full sized toiletries from pure lakes, we purchased some for home before we left Keswick they are lovely. Breakfast was good choice of hot & cold selection, catered well for vegetarians. The place is immaculately clean throughout I could not pick one fault with anything. Lindsay was such a welcoming host, chilled our wine, offered us raincoats & wellies when she thought we didn't have any with us. We are planing our next visit as we had a such a wonderful time here, really recommend it to all.

Thank you for your recent review and for such good feedback. The views from Room 2 are stunning and we are so pleased you enjoyed them. We have tried to think of the best ways for guests to enjoy their rooms as much as possible and the binoculars have proved to be hugely popular, not least because you can sit at night and look at the fells you walked that day. Thank you again for such a positive review and we look forward to seeing you both soon.
