Great hotel with good service and wonderful views, the gardens are fantastic but the place is in need of a bit of a face lift. The food is good and the staff are attentive and helpful. It is worth a visit but is a little overpriced (it is the lake district).

I booked this hotel for a single night in June as I was competing in the Keswick triathlon the following morning. Unfortunately the triathlon started too soon for me to enjoy the breakfast (My wife came back for it and enjoyed it). I had planned to have a "Room Service" breakfast early in the morning but this failed to materialise (I received an apology).
The staff had been very helpful and had rung me beforehand to check what I wanted when I requested "an early breakfast" on my booking.
The hotel is old and has character. It can appear a little dated but that adds to its charm. Our room was fine. We had a large room with complementary chocolates and the tea and coffee making facilities were fine. The complementary bottled water was appreciated. The bar was directly below our room so we were able to hear the disappointed England fans losing to Italy in the World Cup (Not a problem. Not especially loud and I'm sure we'd have heard that in any establishment in England that night). We used the bar before going to bed and I was pleased to see there was at least one hand-drawn beer available.
Parking was no problem and it was a short walk in to the centre of Keswick. The grounds looked lovely and worth a walk around.
The hotel was convenient, had an old world appeal to it and I would use it again but make sure that I get my breakfast next time...

Room Tip: If you're a light sleeper, you might want to avoid a room above the bar.

Had a family station room with two king size beds in a huge bedroom. Immaculately clean, complimentary mineral water and chocs in room. Nice bar and lounge area, with seats outside and putting green. We had evening meal in the restaurant and the food was delicious and staff very polite. Five minutes stroll into Keswick.

Room Tip: station rooms lovely but have no internet access so stay in main hotel if you need this

My wife and I loved it so much we just can't wait to return. The staff, a mixture of East Europeans and British were polite and very helpful. The breakfast buffet was superb with a great choice of cold and hot dishes. The evening meals were of a very high standard too, with the waiters translating some of the less obvious dishes for us! Great to watch the rabbits on the lawn. I have been here a few times now and it is superb for Fell Walking, walking into Keswick and walking down to Derwent Water with great views of Skiddaw and surrounding fells.

My husband and I have been going to the Choice Hotel in Patterdale for years and love it. However, a couple of weeks' ago, we decided on a change of scene and opted for four nights at the Keswick Country House Hotel. We made a good decision, even though we didn't strike a brilliant week, weather-wise. The hotel is well decorated and has all the facilities one expects of a 3 star. The food was very good: rather more "cordon bleu" than the Patterdale perhaps. The staff are friendly and helpful. There is wi-fi everywhere, including in the rooms, which is a big advantage from my point of view.

But the major plus point for us was Keswick: what a delightful town it is; and how accessible everything is from the hotel! Apart from that, there's Skiddaw to the north and several wonderful bus rides to be had (free for us senior citizens!); and the Leisure Centre swimming pool is literally a stone's throw from the hotel...

We shall certainly be returning to to Keswick and the the Choice Hotel there in future!

Room Tip: It's a hike to some rooms on the top floor; but there is a lift!

We hadn't been to Keswick for many years and chose this hotel based on its location and excellent reviews. The hotel is situated beside the old railway station house (now hotel annexe), and next to the public walkway on the old track towards Penrith. Also a short walk to the town centre either through the park or via Station Road.
We stayed for 3 nights in one of their top graded rooms, a Junior Suite, which consisted of a large room with a semi open plan entrance hall leading to bathroom and bedroom. The room had a seating area, beside a large Bay Window, consisting of two leather couches and a table. The rest of the room was furnished in 'period style' furniture and a four poster bed. The room was light and appeared to have been recently decorated. Complementary dressing gowns, chocolates, bottled water and daily newspaper were provided.
However the standard of the food served in a well appointed large dining room is a highlight of the stay. Breakfasts provided a good choice of fruit, cereals, juices, bakery etc and a large selection of cooked items, all from a self service buffet.
Dinners were really excellent with a good choice of traditional and more unusual dishes from a daily changing menu. The staff at all times were really pleasant and helpful whether in the dining room, bar or reception.
The bar lounge provides information on the hotels history,both by pictures on wall and via an interesting large book.

The accommodation (based on our suite), food and service are all superior to many four star hotels we have stayed in over the years. We assume that it is lack of certain facilities like all night reception, pool etc that are required by the AA and ETB, that restrict hotel to a three star rating. We would certainly say that if you normally stay in four star hotels don't let the three star rating put you off. Should we return to Keswick we would certainly stay in this hotel again.

Room Tip: Although the suites have a substantial supplementary cost they are certainly worth the extra if you...
