Reviewed 13 December 2013

This was our fifth visit, once in the summer and the last four in the winter, we love to see the fells with snow on the peaks. We always get a very warm welcome from the friendly and helpful team, the rooms are beautifully decorated with stunning views towards Derwentwater and the fells from the front and Skiddaw from the back, we especially like the balcony rooms. The food is fantastic with a well deserved two rosette award, the only problem is what to chose! The location is handy for the town centre, hope park, the lake, and the Theatre by the lake, and there are some very good walks from the hotel. Looking forward to our next visit.

Room Tip: The balcony rooms no's 4 and 16, rooms 2 and17 have big bay windows and rooms 5 and 18 have fron...

Everything as we expected, would definitely recommend the food is amazing. The staff are very hospitable and nothing to much trouble. We had a beautiful room overlooking the lake. The car park to ther ear of the hotel is really handy as parking can be a bit of a nightmare. Overall had a fabulous time and will definitely be going back

This was our second visit and it was just as good as our first. The hotel has fantastic views of lake Derwentwater from the front and the mountains from the back. The hotel serves excellent food, provides very good wi-fi, and the staff are friendly and helpful The location is very handy for Keswick town centre, the lake and local walks.

Just visited the Highfield for a few nights, what a lovely place to stay, the views are stunning especially with the autumn colours. The hotel is very comfortable and the staff very friendly. Best of all is the food, I would say it is top class. The hotel has a car park and it is easy to get around , the Theatre by the lake is just a couple of minutes away. Will be returning to this hotel again.

Room Tip: The dual aspect rooms are good.

Lovely warm welcome. I was shown to my room then asked if i would like to sit in the lovely front room with the fire lit while I waited for my friends.
The hotel is very nice. our room had fantastic views overlooking Derwent water and the fells.
The bedroom was well equipped, and a nice selection beautifully wrapped toiletries in the en-suite.
All the staff very helpful and approachable.
The service is excellent and the food is lovely (we dined early on the Saturday due to going to the theatre). The menu changes daily which is nice.
The full Cumbrian Breakfast was delicious and plenty. No rushing, which was nice.
I would definitely recommend :)

We booked a short break to celebrate my wife's birthday. The welcome was very friendly as we were shown to our room which had a balcony looking across to Derwent water and the fells. The superb view, when visible through the rain was matched by the dinner menu which changes daily. Our main problem was choosing what not to have. The food was delightfully presented and cooked to perfection, served by attentive but not obtrusive waiting staff. The wine list was more than adequate and allowing for British hotel price inflation was not too expensive with a decent selection on "special offer". The bedroom was well equipped, the beds very comfortable and a nice selection of toiletries in the en-suite. All in all a first class weekend in a first class hotel aided and abetted by cheerful, well trained staff.

This was a nice hotel with very good food. The twin room on the ground floor was nicely furnished and well cleaned. En-suite shower room was comfortable. There were no views from this room. The rear access path was right beside the windows so for reasons of privacy you needed to keep the net curtains in place and there was some noise from people coming in late. They were not particularly rowdy, just in close proximity. The views from he public areas of the Hotel were lovely. We felt the restaurant was over-priced but the food was very good and there were numerous other places to eat within a 5 minute walk. Car parking at the rear was not a problem because there was a rear entrance. The walk to both Keswick market and to the lake was an easy distance and reasonably level. I would stay here again but not in the ground floor rooms.

Room Tip: The ground floor twin, room 10, was a little on the small side and lacked sufficient space for a cou...
