“Excellent Hotel and Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2013

We recently had one night at The Highfield, where we had one of the two Turret Rooms, and although smaller than some of the other rooms we had no cause for complaint. It was very tastefully furnished, exceptionally clean and had the bonus of seating in the little turret, where you can sit and enjoy the view over Derwentwater. The warm welcome and service from the staff was also some of the best we had in our four weeks in Britain. The evening meal was fantastic, beginning with drinks and canapes in the lounge and ending with two courses in the dining room. the food was beautifully cooked and very well presented and once again the service was great. A beautiful breakfast the following morning completed a truly wonderful stay.

The Hotel is located in a really great location in Keswick, just 5 mins walk from Derwentwater and around the same distance from the Town Centre. It is situated in an elevated position overlooking parkland and has wonderful views of the Fells.
I had a single room on the top floor, it had great uninterrupted views over the roof tops to the fells.
My room, although small was well appointed, had great storage and was spotlessly clean. The bed was really comfortable.
The Hotel had its own Restaurant, apart from breakfast, I did not use it, but a different menu was published each day with a wide choice and if the breakfast was anything to go by, the food would be delicious. The Cumbrian Breakfast was probably one of the best I have experienced in the many years I have been travelling too the Lakes. The menu includes fare for all tastes including Smoked Haddock and Kippers.
The Staff are very friendly and efficient and helpful with local knowledge, many of the staff have walked in the fells and will swap stories.
In conclusion, the Highfield is a comfortable Hotel in a really lovely location and has one other really great asset, a large private car park at the rear.

This is a great hotel perfectly located between the main centre of Keswick and the park on the walk towards Derwentwater. Food was very good with an ever changing menu each night and a good choice of wines. The views towards Derwentwater are amazing. The Turrett rooms are quaint although smaller than the others. You will get a warm welcome from all the staff. Overall a great place for a long weekend with friends.

Room Tip: Terrett rooms are just that little bit different. Amazing views in both directions.

My wife and I have recently stayed 5 days at the Highfield Hotel.
Our first floor room was very spacious, well equipped and views looking down Derwent Water and Hope Park.
The breakfasts and evening meals where of excellent quality and very well presented.
The hotel is very near to the bus station, town centre and theatre by the lake.
We will certainly be returning to this hotel.

This really is a lovely place to stay and eat. Had room No4 with beautiful views and balcony not that we could use the balcony far too cold. Lovely bedroom well laid out with everything you need for a comfortable stay. The food excellent, changed the menu for the second night, a very varied choice available, the wine list also very varied. The staff make your stay very enjoyable nothing is too much trouble. Because the weather was so cold decided not to walk but went to the Bowes Museum which is well worth while. If you like porcelain and such like an excellent place to visit also the cafe has excellent food. All in all a lovely stay liked it so much we have already booked for New Year's Eve, what more can you say.

Room Tip: Go for one with the views from the front.

We only ate here but found the service to be excellent as well as the food. Highly recommended.

The quality of the local ingredients was high and food was well prepared. If you can, book early in the evening as the table choice is on a first come first served basis and there are a few tables by the windows with stunning views.

We would certainly consider eating here again on future visits to Keswick.

We have just returned from another trip to Keswick and the only place to stay is the Highfield. Standards are still very high, room was excellant and the food outstanding. As previous reveiwers have said the hotel is perfectly placed as it is close to the town as well as opposite Hope park and Derwentwater. Every time we go to Keswick we try not to use the car. This time the car sat in their very large car park and did not move until today. The staff are still very pleasant and helpful and it was nice to see some new faces. This was our 5th stay here and things never change. There is always something different on the dinner menu. This hotel also allows you to eat even if not staying there and like others I would recommend a visit for a meal. Might be a bit more expensive than normal but fully worth the price. The Lavender bread is to die for.
