“Loved it!”
Reviewed 15 July 2012

We stayed at The Cartwheel in March and had a wonderful stay. You couldn't ask for friendlier hosts and the complimentary cake? Mmmmm! Definitely the best place we've stayed in The Lakes. Our room was fairly compact and the bathroom tiny, but everywhere was immaculate and the bed was nice and comfy. Breakfast was delicious- the sausages on the full English make my mouth water even now. Lovely stay and we were so disappointed it was booked up when we wanted to come in April- had to stay in a far less joyful place!

Thank you for taking the time and trouble to write this pleasant and honest review of your stay at The Cartwheel. We regularly remark to our guests that we are a "What you see, is what you get" Bed and Breakfast ... it's good to know that this is appreciated in what we have to offer during a stay with us in our home and this comes across very well in your .."tell it like it is" review.
Thanks again and hopefully we'll be able to accommodate you again in the not too distant future.

Very comfortable and welcoming. Breakfast was exceptional with a wide range of choice not usually on offer. We returned at the end of each day to find free goodies to include delicious rock cakes and jam muffins. The owners went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable.

We (a group of us on our annual activity long-weekend) have just returned from a wonderful stay at this bed and breakfast in Keswick. The owners were friendly and informative, the food (including the vegetarian option) for breakfast was delicious, the rooms were clean and cleaned and tidied every day, the location central to town, and the price reasonable.
Also, because there were birthday cards in one of our rooms the owners rightly guessed that it was the birthday of the guest in that room. So, the next morning he got a lighted candle stuck in his sausage presented to him at breakfast. Now that's what I call customer service!

Room Tip: Discuss your needs with the owners.

Arrived to a lovely warm greeting from Tina and Bernie, we were shown our room and were impressed! Lovely decor and very clean! Especially liked the towel arrangement - shaped into an elephant and dog! Once I lay on the bed I could have very easily stayed there all day - very comfy. Wish we could have stayed longer - lovely place to rest your head (and fill up with a delicious full english breakfast, and free cake if in the afternoon you're peckish!) would love to return soon!

Attention to detail makes all the difference when staying at Bed and Breakfasts round the country. It makes the difference between somewhere to sleep, and a really enjoyable experience. The Cartwheel is an exceptionally enjoyable experience. The bed was very comfortable, and plenty warm enough, with extra blankets in the wardrobe if needed (and this is the Lake district!). The towels were beautifully presented on the bed. Bathrooms were clean, and the showere superb, as good as any top class hotel. It's these little things that let down other B&Bs so often. Breakfasts were excellent - the fruit and yoghurt carefully chosen to compliment each other, eg pineapple and other exotic fruit with coconut yoghurt, and different each day. The bread was home made, so the toast was a real treat. The welcome was friendly and helpful, but not invasive, exactly what you want. And there was free wifi, easy to access.

In critical need of an escape to my beloved Lakes, I booked this on the Monday morning and stayed until Friday. Tina and Bernie were fantastic hosts throughout and I couldnt have asked for a more warm and genuine welcome. A well presented guest house within a couple of minutes walk of the town centre. Plenty of street parking right outside with no restrictions. My single room was clean, well equiped and comfy. The bathroom was accross the hall but that was a matter of yards away and it was a cracking bathroom for which I had sole use and much better than any en suite you would get anywhere else. The non greasy and superb cooked breakfast was also accompanied with a great slection of fresh fruits, yoghurts and cereals. Other great breakfast choices and packed lunches also available too. Tina is a dab hand with baking and the cakes provided in your packed lunch are spot on! If you are lucky, there is often a big slice of cake waiting for you upon your return from the hills. Great Keswick accomodation and a belting couple to look after you from start to finish. Will be back soon.
