Linnett Hill
Ranked #7 of 189 Keswick B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 May 2014

We stayed for 2 nights and wished we could of stopped longer. Our hosts Andy and Mandy were the ideal hosts with a great knack of remembering everyones names, we stayed in a room at the back which was very clean and decorated to a bright and modern finish, the breakfasts were excellent and Mandy was very informative and provided us with a map for a walk around the lake which was great and luckily topped with great weather. Parking at the back was very useful. Lots of little extra touches throughout make the Linnett Hill a must and we will definitely be returning when stopping in Keswick or the lakes.
Many Thanks Lee and Lyn

What can I say? Without exaggeration this is the best B&B we have stayed in. All of the rooms are decorated to a modern, high standard and are well kept. Off street parking at the rear is an added bonus. The breakfast was lovely and there were plenty of variations on the full English for those with a smaller appetite. The owners Andy and Mandy were very friendly and accommodating, and made us feel very welcome. The little extra touches like the bottled water in the bedrooms and the snacks in the guest lounge set Linnett HIll apart from the rest. We would not hesitate to recommend this guest house.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 3 which is the room pictured on the website with the window seat. The room was lov...

We stayed at Linnett Hill last week, what a joy! An immaculate guest house, we simply couldn't find fault with anything. Decor is beautiful and tasteful, breakfasts delicious, hosts just lovely. We were in a room at the rear of the house which was very quiet and peaceful. We are regulars in the Lake District and have our favorite accommodation in various locations around there. We can safely say that Linnett Hill is our new favorite in Keswick and hope to return very soon.

My wife and I stayed here over Easter. We were both delighted by the location, but also by the quality of the B&B. The owners were both lovely and very knowledgeable about the surrounding area, they were always able to help us with our Hiking plans. The room we had was at the back and very peaceful. The breakfasts were great!

The next time we are in the lake district I know where we will be staying!

My wife and I have just stayed at this cracking guesthouse with its superb and tasteful modern decor. Our bedroom and en suite shower room was provided with a super king sized bed. It had a great view of Skiddaw and overlooked a pleasant public garden. Although we could hear the slight traffic noise mentioned by a previous reviewer, we didn't find it intrusive.

The dining room was large, bright and airy. It had an extensive breakfast menu displayed on a large, wall-mounted chalkboard. A very comfortable guest sitting room was to the front with its own toilet and washbasin. A well equipped entrance lobby at the rear had a boot/shoe rack and rail for drying damp clothes, and was accessed from the large rear car park.

The whole accommodation was exceptionally clean and freshly decorated. Housekeeping and attention to detail was to an extremely high standard. The place is a gem. Mandy and Andy are fantastic hosts whose welcome, service, flexible approach and breakfasts are first rate.

I almost forgot to mention the bed, it was one of the most comfortable we have slept in.

The next time we plan to stay in Keswick, Linnett Hill will be our first choice.

We booked with Linnett Hill based on Trip Advisor and it certainly lived up to the hundreds of positive comments. Mandy and Andy were the perfect hosts; very enthusiastic and nothing was too much trouble. The hard work undertaken to refurbish this beautiful, centrally located property has certainly paid off. Everywhere is clean, fresh and tastefully decorated. We loved the extra touches such as fresh milk, sweets and crisps along with the log burning stove in the communal room. We would strongly recommend a stay at Linnett Hill, you won't be disappointed.

We were their 6 o'clock on Monday, April 14, 2014. The house was excellent in design, cleanliness and all arrangements. The location was also perfect as we just needed a few minutes walk to the Keswick town centre. And most of all, breakfast and the way Mandy and her partner Andy took care of us was really special.

Eventhough we didn't have much chance to talk as there were so many guests and you two were doing your best to serve all of us, we would like to say "thank you so much". Certainly, we would recommend those who are looking for place to stay in Keswick. Get Mandy !!!
