This was our second visit to The Highfield which we were looking forward to very much. On our arrival we had a very warm welcome and our case was carried to our room which was lovely with a picture postcard view of Derwentwater from the window. Unfortunately, during travelling, I became unwell and during the evening at 9.30 p.m., my husband enquired from Nicholas, the Manager, about medical assistance. He suggested Keswick Cottage Hospital and said that Dawn, his partner, would drive us there and we were to ring up when we were ready to return to the hotel, which was 11.30 p.m., and she would come to collect us. This was above and beyond the call of duty and we would just like to put on record how grateful we were to them as they work very hard and also have a little l5 month old boy to look after. It is very uplifting and heartwarming to meet such a kind, caring couple, who look after the welfare of their guests. The high standards and exceptional cuisine was, once again, achieved and we would like to wish The Highfield and its staff all the very best. They deserve all the credit they receive. We would not think of staying anywhere else in Keswick.

Our third year at the Highfield for a birthday break and again we had a super stay. Friendly and caring staff, very nice room, - and Oh! The food! Absolutely delicious. Will be booking for longer next year. Perfect position to walk into Keswick, and you can leave your car, and use bus or Keswick launch to get to various places for superb walks around Derwent water. A great base for a short break - or a long one if your diet can take it!

As it was our 25th anniversary on 2 March we wanted to stay somewhere special and chose the Highfield as we had been impressed by our previous 2 visits. This hotel is one of the best we have stayed in, in the UK. The hotel management decided to do a refurbishment of the rooms overv the past few months and what a wonderful job they have done. Our room (4) looked out on Hope Park with amazing views of Derwentwater and the fells. The weather we had also allowed us to sit on the balcony and really take in the picture in front of us. The staff as always were friendly helpful and unobtrusive. Now the food. As always the chefs produced excellant food for dinner meals with starter, main course and sweets always produced a very presentable manner. There is actually no down side to this hotel. It is a perfect position in Keswick, has private parking at the rear, excellant rooms and exquisite food. Well done once again the HIghfield.

Nothing disappointed. Had room 17 on first floor. Very roomy with large bay window and superb view over the park to the Lake. Room and ensuite bathroom very clean and very warm in rather cold (December) but otherwise pleasant weather ( three or four weeks after floods - a previous guest looking at the fllooded park had apparently been surprised just how close "the Lake" was to the hotel). A good spacious car park which indeed is useful in Keswick. Hotel is very close to centre of town and great base for walks around Keswick or just strolling about the town (try the walk beginning near the leisure centre along the disused railway line which criss-crosses the Greta river - you can take a diversion to Castlerigg Stone Circle part way along this route). Hotel about three quarters of a mile (?) to the Theatre By The Lake so that's an easy walk for theatre goers.
The sample menu on the Hotel's own website is a good guide to the lovely dinners which were superbly cooked and presented. The wines on offer were a tad expensive but the Australian Opal Ridge was gorgeous. The breakfasts were very good indeed, if not quite up to the standard set by the dinners (you'd expect a slightly more exciting sausage in Cumbria!).
Service from the hosts and the young waitresses was very courteous, efficient and polite (maybe some guests (like my spouse) might like the hosts to display a little more interest in the guests' adventures in the day but I thought the hosts were pleasant without being intrusive).
Possibly the hotel is more expensive than most other accommodation in Keswick but you get what you pay for. It was worth it. You could of course try eating out instead of having dinner in, and there is a good choice of eateries in Keswick with a variety of cuisines but we doubt we would have saved much money or that it would have been as good if we had eaten out.
Hope to go again soon and noted from the visitors book that there is a lot of repeat business.
