Strathmore Guest House
Ranked #62 of 189 Keswick B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 October 2013

We had a faultess stay at this exceptional family run B&B. It's in a great location, walking distance to the town centre but very quiet, with ample parking.

The hosts were very welcoming and knowledable about the area. They organised taxis for us and recommend fantastic restaurants and bars.

Our room was very comfortable with everything we needed. The bed was particularly comfortable with very high quality bedding.

Breakfast was fantastic, good coffee, fresh fruit and good quality sausages and bacon.

We will certainly return to Keswick and would look no further than the Strathmore.

Keep up the good work.

An overnight stay was sufficient to want us to return again!
Conveniently located on a quiet street made for easy access to the town and lake and after a few pints we were able to stroll home (rather than catch a taxi)
The room was very comfortable with all that was needed and the duvet was especially cosy.
Breakfast was a banquet with fresh blueberries, strawberries & bananas that got my immediate attention. The host "Simmy" cooked a tasty gourmet full English breakfast that was 'faultless' and left me totally satisfied by the time I had finished the freshly brewed coffee.
Well done and definitely good value, keep up the exceptional work

We only stayed here for 1 night but wish we could have stayed longer! The owners are welcoming & friendly without being overbearing. The house is a just a short stroll away from galleries, cafe bars, shops, restaurants and the lake and overlooks a beautiful church, so it's very well positioned. The bedroom itself was a small double, the owners said it was the room in need of redecorating the most, but I found it to be charming and incredibly comfortable! The shower was hot and powerful, towels fluffy and plentiful and the duvet and pillows were top quality Dorma hungarian goose down with 300 thread crisp white sheets (I know because I checked:)) The room had everything you'd expect, flat screen wall mounted digital tv, tea & coffee facilities, lovely biscuits and a few nice toiletries. We woke to the smell of bacon and hurried downstairs for breakfast. What a treat! A delicious cooked breakfast (perfect poached eggs, bacon, good quality sausage, mushrooms, oven roasted tomatoes, hot buttered toast and filter coffee) as well as yoghurt, blueberries, strawberries, grapefruit, cereal, muesli etc etc! Much better than some expensive hotels I've stayed in! We will be back for more soon, thank you!!

...if you want top notch B&B accommodation whilst in Keswick. Paul & Jodi make excellent hosts and always make you feel comfortable and welcome. All of the rooms are very well presented and the deluxe double is worth spending a few extra pennies on. Breakfast is fantastic with a wide and varied choice of local produce. If your clothes need drying after a wet day then Strathmore has a dry room facility and also has the major benefit of a car park to the rear. If you've ever tried street parking in Keswick you'll know how big a benefit the car park is! We've stayed at the Strathmore on countless occasions and wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else. Top marks fully deserved.

This is our second visit to this wonderful B&B, hosts are superb, very friendly and helpful, especially when we came back soaked from a rather moist walk !

Top breakfast, quality and variety is excellent and the rooms are really well furnished and comfortable, we wanted for nothing – outside of some sunshine !

Great off road parking and an easy stroll into the town.

We shall be back for certain and highly recommend them

Room Tip: all the rooms we've experienced have been great
