“a really poor place, avoid at all costs”
Reviewed 10 April 2012

dreary, bland, unimaginative decor, unclean, a poor location- no parking, very noisy drunken passers by, and to top it all a very poor attitude by the owner Andy (?), do not be fooled by other reviews, there are plenty of nicer hotels and campsites in Keswick, a fine place to stay and visit. This hotel had a feeble attempt at boutique chic and failed, breakfast was cold and slow in service- a very disappointing night

Stayed August 2011, travelled with family

We stayed for four nights before Easter and really enjoyed coming back to the clean comfortable room after each day's activities. The photos on this site give a good indication of what to expect, which was cleanliness, style and comfort. The location was very good, enabling a very easy stroll into the town in the evenings to find a meal, and crazy golf and pitch and putt could be seen from out of our bedroom window! The breakfasts were of a very high quality and my dietary requirements proved no problem to our hosts, and I felt well fed and looked after. Charlotte and Andy were very keen that we should have a good stay. I hope that their plans to develop a sitting room downstairs are realised as this would only add to the quality of the relaxation on offer. Best wishes for the future enterprise.. Mrs S Birmingham

Stayed here for just one night the week before Easter. We would look no further on a return trip to Keswick. We received a warm and friendly welcome from both Andy and Charlotte . The room was exceptional, just like the rest of this hotel. The renovation is first class and to a high standard and very very tasteful.The bathroom was spotless and the shower was amazing. The shower gel and shampoo provided are locally made and excellent quality. Breakfast was absolutely wonderful, fresh fruit, cereals, yoghurt and a freshly cooked full English breakfast with toast. This place sets the standard which all other hotels should aspire to. Really enjoyed our stay and will return. James and Donald

This was the fourth time we have returned to Rooms 36 and it is definately our favourite place in the Lakes. Our room was very stylishly decorated with a fab bathroom complete with lovely locally produced toileteries. Really comfy big bed in an immaculately clean room and a big bonus for us is that it is dog friendly (Skye enjoyed her stay as much as we did)!!

Brilliant breakfast served in the bright dining room, all in all the perfect destination and we can't wait to go back again soon.

Room Tip: Thay are all good!

Great location, beautiful rooms, and wonderful owners. While the outside still needs some work, the interior has been very carefully and tastefully renovated. Our room and bathroom was amazing and the coffee machine very welcome! Possibly one of the best spreads for breakfast of our European trip, Andy and Kate should be congratulated for their service. We will definitely be back !

Hi Alison, we are very pleased you enjoyed your stay with us here in Keswick; Thank you for your review, we look forward to a busy year 2012 as 2011 has been very quiet for us, I think the weather and the financial situation in Europe has not helped, hope you had a good journey home.

My two teenage daughters and I have just had a three day stay at Rooms 36 and had a great experience. We arrived mid afternoon, which was earlier than we had anticipated, but none the less were shown straight to our room by Andy. We had booked a family room which had a double and a set of bunk beds. The decor was to a very high standard as was the quality of the furnishings and fittings. I can now report that the beds were the best I have ever slept on in a guest house! And the room was huge with great views. My daughters particularly liked the fact there was a Tassimo coffee machine in the room and a iPod radio thing. The ensuite shower room was to a similarly high standard.

Breakfasts,as reported elsewhere, were to a very high standard with lots of choice.

One afternoon we returned to the guest house shortly after lunch having got soaking wet at Honister slate mine just with the intention of showering and changing. We met Charlotte in the hallway and she offered to take clothes and dry them for us. This just typifies the level of service we received during our stay were nothing was too much trouble for our hosts.

A fantastic stay and a Guest House I cannot recommend highly enough
