We have just returned from a two night stay at The Highfield. We stayed in the chapel that has been converted into a vast bedroom. The huge ornate bed would bring restful sleep to the worst insomniac and the roll top bath was an irristable invitation after a days trecking. The hotel was spotless and the staff polite with out being intrusive.

We dined on the saturday evening and had the most delicious steak ever cooked by mankind. The meat was so finely cooked it was almost as delicate as a dessert. Beautiful. The dessert itself was appe pie which again was completely gorgeous. All this plus another two courses for the ridiculously cheap price of £25.00.

Breakfast was a perfectly cooked smoked haddock with crumbly flakes of fishmeat smoked to perfection.

the telly didnt work but if you want to watch the goggle boxy in a place like this then there is obviously something not quite right with your relationship

Tremendous value will definately visit again

I cannot recommend this hotel too highly.

Following great comments onTripadvisor we were looking forward to our stay at the Highfield,especially as we had booked the well reviewed Woodford room. We were shown to our room with the comment that the windows had been left open to air the room. Unfortunately, the musty smell did not disappear during the 3 days of our stay,even though we left the windows open all day.The television was very old & not able to show a complete picture! The remote control was broken & had to be handled very carefully or it fell apart. The bed was big but the mattress lumpy. Some of the public areas are rather shabby, especially the entrance from the car park.
The service is charming, the breakfast delicious & the hotel is very well situated.

The Highfield Hotel had been recommended to me by a friend who stays at least once a year. Unfortunately we had already booked our accomodation.
Dinner is available to non residents so we booked for dinner. The manager and staff were so friendly, eating there was a real treat. Canapes were served with our drinks in the lounge and then we were led through to the dining room. Unfortunately as it was dark we were unabe to take in the lovely view but the food was delightful. I was shown a couple of rooms they both looked comfortable and one had a brilliant view of Derwentwater. Next time we visit the Lake District we will not hesitate to book in at the Highfield Hotel.

Top marks for this great hotel. Fantastic views of Derwent water and Catbells from our lovely and spacious bedroom.To wake up with that fantastic view is just fab. The staff are all friendly and well trained. Evening dinner is an experience not to be missed, top quality and beautifully presented, an excellent cooked to order breakfast and a good selection of fresh fruit. Situated on a quiet street with private parking to the rear, within 2 minutes walk of the town centre just makes this hotel our favourite in Keswick.

Room tip: A large tree can obscure the view from some rooms

Stayed here for our wedding anniversary, my wife and I had a lovely stay. The hotel was easy to find, very well located for Keswick centre and had a brilliant view from our room to the lake.

We had dinner in the hotel first night and the food was very good. Very rich and a nice choice of meals, can recommend this hotel and the breakfast was equally nice!

The staff were very helpful and always pleasant, will happily recommend this hotel.
