“Standards Retained”
Reviewed 10 March 2011

Was at the Highfield last week for what is becoming an annual trip for our Wedding Anniversary. It is nice to know that in these uncertain financial times standards are being retained at this hotel. The hotel staff as usual were helpful and cheerful at all time and the Manager was really attentative when on duty. The cuisine was it's gourmet standard and varied. We stayed for 4 nights and after taking some long walks each day the room was a welcome rest and a ggod soak in a good bath. The room was always cleaned to a high standard. We will be going again next year without doubt.

Our second stay here in 18 months and I reckon the quality of the evening dinners is even better than before. Couldn't fault the food or the service at dinner. Good value house wines too.
As before, location and car park are a big bonus in Keswick. Spring discount offer makes this pretty good value. Try it.
Only one small niggle. Breakfast hot food was delivered while we were still on our fruit and cereal, which I saw as a bit of a gaffe, and in direct contrast to the excellent, unhurried service at dinner.

On previous trips to Keswick we have enjoyed pub lunches and dinners in nice restaurants but nothing that really aspired to the gourmet market (despite a couple of high profile attempts which have fallen short in our experience). Highfield has really filled this gap. Not in the least pretentious but using fabulous locally sourced ingredients Highfield exceeded our expections. Service was polite and unobtrusive. The wine list has a respectable range which we felt was good value for money. The South African Shiraz we ordered punched way above its price tag. The restaurant itself is going for understated elegence and is decorated with black and white photographic prints of local vistas by Mike Shepherd.
We throughly enjoyed our meal and will certainly return.

Our recent stay at the Highfield was the fourth in eighteen months.
The Highfield Hotel must have some of the finest views in Keswick.
Our room had views of Derwent Water with mountains on either side and snow covering the tops.
The food, service, and cleanliness provided by the hotel was excellent.
The bus station, theatre and shops are only only a few minutes walk from the hotel.

We arrived, checked in with a lovely welcome from the manager. Our room was like a suite with a raised seating area, fabulously spacious bathroom and beautiful carved and comfortable bed, shame about the headboard which creaked very loudly every time you coughed or yawned but we cured that with a towel shoved behind it! Everything in the room was lovely although the shower was a bit pathetic but the bath was so comfy it compensated. The food was beautifully presented and promoted local produce which we are very keen on. My only criticism was the meat being overcooked on both nights for my taste but that is a rather personal thing. Otherwise we were very happy with the location, just near the lake, the hotel itself, the staff and the food. Many thanks for a lovely break.

this hotel is just perfect, I visited with a friend we had a twin room that was lovely and warm, very nice after a hard day walking. breakfast was great too, although no baked beans which is very picky. ALL the staff were brilliant very helpful. Anyone thinking of booking do not hesitate - fab !!!!
