“Short break 28th - 30th October 2012”
Reviewed 31 October 2012

We have just got back from a 2 night stay at The Keswick Country House Hotel. We arrived on a very wet Sunday afternoon and must admit I was a little disappointed to not be allowed in our room until 3.00 pm. I understand this is the 'official' check in time, but I have never stayed in a hotel either in this country or overseas and not been allowed in the room, if it was ready. This is a very strict policy as there were other guests also waiting. Surly not every room is ready at 3.00 pm.
The hotel in general is very tired looking, although there was some decorating going on during our stay. All the furnishings in lounge etc. could really do with an overhaul.
Final point, when we checked out, the receptionist didn't even ask if we had enjoyed our stay. No goodbye, see you again soon or anything. The Keswick will certainly not be seeing me again soon!

We are a group of 4, 50 yr olds who enjoy walking in the lakes and have visited the other Choice Hotel in Patterdale many times and have always enjoyed our stays there. As this was our first stay at the Keswick we were unsure what to expect but we needn't have worried. The rooms were great (one was a junior suite with great views and a very comfortable bed). The food was excellent and the service too. The location is good with us being able to start our walk to Skiddaw from the car park. The only critisim would be that the public areas looked a little jaded. All in all a lovely place to stay and unwind.

Just returned with six friends from our second stay at the Keswick Country House. Food was excellent at both breakfast and dinner. All the staff are professional and friendly. There is extensive refurbished taking place at the moment so looking forward to seeing the results on our next visit.

Stayed here for 3 nights.On arrival allocated refurbished room which we had pre booked.The lift was out of order although we did know this due to a phone call on booking.The room allocated we felt was poorly finished off eg: bathroom window stuck fast, warm water from cold tap, and other minor things which if had been thought through would have made a huge difference to our room and to our stay here. P.S. no bathrobes, need I say more !.Breakfast was buffet style which we do not like, the evening meal was at best average on the Saturday night, not good value for money in our opinion.Location of the hotel was excellent being only 5 mins from Keswick town centre and all the facilities on offer, bars, restaurants, shops etc. We had a fire alarm incident through the night which resulted in the hotel being evacuated ,and in our opinion was badly handled by the non exsistent night staff "on duty". We were not kept informed of what was going on and are still wondering who gave the ok to return to our beds.........very worrying for a hotel this size !

Room Tip: Ask for refurbished room when booking as lots of work going on , heard one customer complaining at t...

We stayed recently for dinner, bed and breakfast. The reception staff were very friendly and the room was as clean, spacious and well stocked with tea and coffee etc.

Dinner was very nice on all 3 nights with a wide choice and friendly staff. We had a small baby with us and the staff were very taken with her and helped entertain her throughout the day!

Breakfast again had a wide choice and was of a perfectly acceptable standard for a buffet style meal. The staff were a little less attentive at breakfast but it was generally busy and they were keen to keep the food refreshed.

Overall a lovely stay in a lovely hotel.
