“Superb food! Excellent service!! Great Location!!”
Reviewed 17 April 2012

My Auntie and I often take a break in the Lakes and this time we decided on Keswick. I reviewed many hotels on Tripadvisor and we decided to choose The Highfield. We were NOT disappointed in any way at all!! The views from our twin room (no 9) were absolutely stunning, mountains, lake and trees. We were greeted by Nick the Manager who was incredibly attentive during all of our stay. The location is perfect to walk into town, to the lake or the theatre. A good size car park to the rear of the hotel was also a real bonus. The best bit about our stay has got to be the incredible food!! Everything is purchased locally and the quality of meat, fish, etc is second to none. Each evening we enjoyed canopes in the lounge whilst choosing our food, it was a lovely touch. We will be back again.. a real 'foodie' treat!!!!!

Room Tip: Try to pick a room with a view of the Lake.. you will not be disappointed!!

An unexpected one night stay turned into a delight; lovely staff, wonderful food, and stunning views, combined with a private car park and a two miute walk into town made this hotel a gem. A return visit is already planned!

Thanks to a wonderful present from the Grandparents my Wife and I spent a few fantastic days in the Lakes with a couple of lovely walks up Walla Crag and Latrigg. The Highfield Hotel is really well placed within easy reach of the centre of Keswick and with ample off-road parking to the rear of the Hotel.
My wife is Coeliac and they catered for her brilliantly. They prepared gluten-free hors d'oeuvres and provided detailed guidance on what was OK to eat.
The 4-course evening meals were of high quality and certainly didn't help with the summer diet.
We're now working on the grandparents to arrange our next stay.

Room Tip: Room 2 has a lovely bay window with great views.

This was our third visit in recent years and the Highfield is a very pleasant place to stay. As before, the location and the views are great, with the bonus of a good-sized car park.

Dinners are always an event with very, very good dishes served by attentive staff. Good wines by the glass. Breakfast equally good.

Reasonable prices on their Spring special offer.

Can't really fault it as we keep going back. I'm just amazed it is so far down the ratings. This must be in the top 10 hotels in Keswick, but I suppose the vagiaries of Trip Advisor scoring come in to play. If you read the 2 terrible reviews, one of them doesn't even make sense - and it's from 5 years ago!

Room Tip: Pick your room off the website. All the rooms at the front have great views over the park to Derwent...

Last weekend was our third stay at Highfield, it is a top end Lake District hotel with a consistently high standard of accommodation and food. Highly recommended.

First impressions of the Highfield are superb, with uninterupted views of Derwent Water. We received a warm and friendly welcome from the hotel staff who were very proficient and most helpfull throughout our weekend stay. The hotel is very clean and comfortable with a warm and friendly country house feel. The dining room is well laid out with superb views of the lake and the food is excellent, as is the service. Dinner at the Highfield is not to be missed with a mouthwatering selection to choose from. Likewise the breakfast is one of the best we have enjoyed with a menu to match. To summarise, a great location, excellent food and service in a very comfortable and relaxing hotel.
