We have stayed at Keswick Country House many times and will keep coming back. Do not hesitate to book, you will not find better value for your money. Yes its old and a little faded but the rooms are clean and tidy and the saff are excellent The food served in the restaurant is first class and there is always a good choice. The hotel stands in a good position and has easy access into Keswick and the lake. We have always enjoyed our stays in the hotel and cannot rate it highly enough.

Room Tip: Station rooms are a little more expensive but worth the extra.

Just had another great stay at the Keswick Country House Hotel. We love it and, as the hotel was full, so do loads of other people. It can't be beaten for food, service and price. There's plenty of parking and it's so handy for strolling into Keswick after a day out walking. All the rooms we've been in are spacious. Give the Keswick Country House a try - you won't be disappointed.

Stayed here for three nights in April. Absolutely superb .Yes, it's a bit dated and faded, in parts (though we had a beautiful room in old Station), but it's a huge building and upkeep must be a nightmare. Excellent location (on cycle/walk path that goes from coast to coast); easy walk into town. Food, as others have said, is excellent - looked forward to it each day. Staff very helpful, welcoming and attentive. Would recommend without reservation if you want a comfortable base from which to explore this fantastic part of the world.

Room Tip: Try to get a suite in old Station

Having tried to book one night at a nearby hotel slightly higher up the Tripadvisor League Table, who wanted £140 per night DB&B for 2 people, but insisted on a 50% surcharge if you did not stay for two nights, even though they had 10 empty rooms that night (Easter Monday) and no prospect of filling them, I turned to the Keswick Country House Hotel, who wanted £128 for one night's DB&B in a "Superior Room".

Initial impressions were of a very grand and imposing Victorian Hotel in a prime location, just 5 mins walk from the centre of Keswick, and with ample parking space. We expected the interior to be somewhat tired and neglected, as these hotels often are, but nothing could be further from the truth. The public rooms were extremely nice and our bedroom and en-suite could not be faulted - it was indeed superior. The decorations were absolutely immaculate, the facilities were of a high quality, the heating worked well and was controllable, and the view was excellent. The only slight negative was that if you required any privacy you had to draw the curtains because room 105 looks directly out onto the front car park (with a fantastic view also of the gardens and nearby hills).

The bar area was very pleasant and comfortable, and dinner was excellent, with a nice choice of quality dishes with no hidden surcharges. Breakfast was a hot buffet of a very high quality.

Wi-fi coverage could have been better but was apparently hindered by the thick walls. In order to get a connection in the bar you had to walk to the reception area, connect, and then walk back to the bar, and if you were lucky you stayed connected.

Service from walking in to leaving was superb - the staff could not have been more pleasant or more helpful. Overall we had a very pleasant stay for a very attractive price - couldn't fault it.

Room Tip: Our "superior" room at the front of the main hotel was very nice. I overheard the barman telling another guest that the rooms in the adjoining Station building were the best as they were the most recently furnished.

If I review this hotel one more time people will think I own it! We have just had another great stay here at the end of March. The weather was fine but chilly and it was lovely to get back to our warm,cosy and spotlessly clean room (standard twin) each day, have a chat with the friendly staff and look forward to an excellent meal each evening. The Keswick Hotel has to be the best value for money anywhere in the Lakes - the average for a run of the mill B&B in Keswick is about £35 pppn and find your own parking space, and we were paying very little more that for DB&B with free parking at the Keswick Hotel. I felt I must review again to address a couple of points from other reviewers, one of whom couldn't even get the name of the hotel right - it is not the "Keswick Country Grange" Hotel Farfrom, did you review the wrong hotel? As for the hotel being in need of a makeover, that is currently ongoing which cannot be easy to carry out in such a busy place as this hotel is pretty much full occupancy all year round. This is a lovely old building steeped in history and, as with all old buildings, it has it's sloping floors and wonky window frames, but if you want all mod cons then go to a Travelodge and leave the Keswick to those of us who love it. Another reviewer remarked on the quantity of the packed lunches which I found quite astonishing as we have had them on several occasions and have yet to eat everything at one go as there is so much included! The only thing I would change about this hotel is that I prefer sheets and blankets to duvets - but then maybe if I asked these would be provided, have to try on my next visit which will be very soon.
