“Fantasic B&B”
Reviewed 10 August 2013

First the bad points to put people off so there will be space when we book to go back!
1. The B&B is on a main road - that should put people off who don't like traffic. We had a road facing room and it was actually surprisingly quiet as Keswick roads have very little traffic at night. The view over the park was lovely with the fells behind.
2. Parking in Keswick can be a nightmare. Linnett Hill has a good sized proper car park at the rear - so actually a very good point!
I have to give up - I really can't think of any negatives!!
Linnett Hill is a lovely newly refurbished B&B close to the centre of Keswick. My husband and I had a room that was spotlessly clean with a very comfortable bed and modern en suite shower room.
Andy and Mandy are the best B&B hosts we've met. They are so friendly and welcoming in a completely natural way. They really seem to enjoy making people feel at home and nothing is too much trouble for them.
The sign of a good B&B is the quality of its breakfasts. Linnett Hill doesn't disappoint here either. There are plenty of options and unlimited hot drinks and toast. Andy cooks a great full English and Mandy always has a smile while serving it. You couldn't wish for a better start to the day.
In terms of quality and value for money Linnett Hill deserves its high rating on Tripadvisor.

We would highly recommend Linnett Hill B & B, Andy and Mandy are the most perfect hosts and should be very proud of what they have achevied as the accommodation is exceptionally clean, it's well located in a very popular area of the Lake District. Mandy greats you with a very warm welcome.The rooms are of a very high standard, with tea, coffee, bottle water, hot chocolate and biscuits etc., their breakfast menu has a very large variety which should suit all variable diets.We would recommend the guset house to any one.
Thank you for a most enjoyable stay, look forward to seeing you again.

What a fabulous find. We could not have asked for a nicer stay. Andy and Mandy were extremely friendly, welcoming and relaxed making us feel at ease from the off. First impressions of Linnett Hill were welcoming and attention to detail was amazing. Our room was beautiful in design and very comfortable. Breakfast was a feast of loveliness with all sorts of choices. As you can tell we will be going back!!

OK, the weather was perfect but it was more than matched by the quality of Linnett Hill's accomodation and service. We've stayed here before when the place was under different management--it was central, with a large and accessible car park--but the transformation wrought by Mandy and Andy has been remarkable. The rooms beautifully furnished, the breakfasts unfeasibly various and large...but with no hike in price. What really impressed us--as Lake District regulars--was the couple's encyclopaedic knowledge of the area...apparently gained in a few short months. Everyone else staying there was equally impressed and--like us--would recommend Linnett Hill without reservations.

Room Tip: Try to get a front facing room with views of the park with Lattrigg and Blencathra behind.

Set me up for a big mountain race to the top of Skiddaw...the only shame was that I had to hold back on the breakfast so as not to weigh myself down too much.
Nice comfortable beds, slept well.
Comfortable living room, lots of space
The only small thing was the lock on the bathroom door which seemed to be at an awkward angle and a bit stiff.

Room Tip: Go for the porridge at breakfast

Great hosts, great location, spotlessly clean accommodation with some lovely touches (toiletries, tea & coffee making facilities, biscuits, spring water & crisps!), fabulous cooked breakfast. Highly recommended!

We only had one night to spend in Keswick and it was our first stay there in a B&B (we've always camped at Derwentwater). With so much choice we decided to look on tripadvisor. Linnett Hill had just been rated #1 B&B in Keswick...too good to be true? So we turned to their facebook page and after viewing the photos of the renovations undertaken we just couldn't resist, you can tell from their postings that there is more than finance invested here - it's been done with love and it shows.
So we booked 1 night, which carried an extra £10 on the usual £75 per room with breakfast, which is fair enough. It was easy to book, we made arrangements by email which was dealt with very efficiently. We paid by cheque for which we received a confirmation email and the cheque was cashed promptly.
I can only repeat what others here have already stated, Mandy & Andy are lovely, genuinely friendly, helpful and hospitable. We only had the one night at Linnett Hill but it was enough to realise that this place is more than just a B&B. Our room (1) was lovely, spotlessly clean and airy, extremely comfortable bed (I'm thinking of enquiring about the mattress!) and we really did feel like we were the 1st people to use the room. The breakfast was wonderful, not just for the amount of choice but also for the quality of EVERYTHING, from table linen, cutlery, croissants, juices etc etc etc...Oh yes, the fruit salad :-)) my husband opted for an omelette, again endless choices here, ham and cheese was the request and Andy prepared a fresh, hot, tasty omelette that quite frankly looked as though it had just come from a French bistro! My husband said it was better than my ham and cheese omelette and I'll gladly take that comment. Mandy was attentive, friendly and efficient (what a gift to have at 8am!)
I have always referred to Keswick as heaven on earth and now Linnett Hill B&B along with superb hosts Andy & Mandy have their place in this paradise.
