Linnett Hill
Ranked #7 of 189 Keswick B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 December 2013 via mobile

Stayed here last weekend for a few days and was very impressed . Ideal location in town , parking is good and the breakfast was very good .

A lot of thought has clearly gone into linnett hill in relation to the decor and rooms. Very tastefully done, modern with a country twist and homely .

To top it off , both Andy and Mandy were very welcoming and are genuinely very nice people . I'm sure they work hard at running linnett hill and it shows . Very informative about things to do other than walk , due to the gale force winds and torrential rain we experienced ! This was a surprise for my girlfriend ( now fiancé ) and she loved the place .

Will definitely return to linnett hill next time we are in Keswick .

We stayed on a Sunday night in October whilst on a mountain biking trip. We found this to be a great B&B, and will definitely stay here again next time we are in Keswick. There's so many great things about this place: Andy & Mandy have clearly put a lot of thought into what people want from a B&B: we got a really warm welcome; there's plenty of car parking space and there was a place to keep our bikes; everywhere is beautifully decorated, including our room; great advice and information about local pubs and restaurant; and a great breakfast!

Can't add to the previous comments. Uniformally excellent across all features that make up a high end. The hosts Mandy and Andy are great company and demonstrate what a couple can genuinely achieve when a more collective life in accountancy careers is ditched to pursue a more inspiring dream. if you are going to stay in Keswick, stay here...even if you are natural hotel wallahs.

Tastefully upgraded B&B in a very convenient location in Keswick with the added advantage of off street parking. Spotlessly clean with nice personal touches throughout the building, Mandy and Andy are attentive, friendly hosts. Breakfast was efficient and delicious with a varied choice available.

The location and car parking could not be better. Car parking really is an issue at B&Bs in Keswick. All the positive comments have already been made on Trip Adviser. If you were forced to come up with a negative I suppose you could say you can hear the traffic during the day from the front bedrooms - but so what !
Andy and Mandy are made to do this line of work and the facilities they provide are first class.
When you recommend a place you are often asked 'would you go back', and you say 'yes', and of course you don't cos the world is a big place and you wonder what you are missing - well we have already made two more bookings - need I say anymore.

Stayed recently at Linnett Hill for a couple of nights. Chose it on the basis of the good reviews and it's excellent location and good off-street parking. It immediately passed our three point test - good shower, comfortable bed & super breakfast. These are what you should expect from the higher end b&b's but what lifted Linnett Hill above the average was the great welcome from Andy & Mandy. Really informative hosts who gave us a lot of info re places to eat and walks to do (One must follow the other !!!). They got the balance right in that the they were friendly & available but we're not in your face like some hosts can be. The acid test is Would you return ? In the case of Linnett Hill the answer is most definitely yes.

We visited this lovely hotel a couple of years ago and liked it then but have to say we saw a 100% improvement when we visited last week. The whole hotel has been redecorated and refurbished to a very high standard, its so bright and airy. The breakfast was excellent, so much choice.
Andy and Mandy were the perfect hosts and have every intention of maintaining the high standards they have achieved.
Finally,have to say the bonus of this hotel is its very generous car park! you arrive in Keswick knowing there is no hassle finding a place to park.
We will definitely visit this hotel again.
