Sandon Guest House
Ranked #103 of 196 Keswick B&B and Inns
Reviewed 10 August 2013

Stayed at Sandon (for the fifth year) for the Convention! As always we had a wonderful stay - the rooms are delightful, with excellent refreshments' tray & quality toiletries: the breakfasts are what dreams are made of; and Steve & Margaret are friendly and welcoming hosts. Nothing is too much trouble for them and we are delighted to re-book each year. You won't find better in Keswick!

Been to the Keswick Convention and stayed at Sandon for a week. Margaret and Steve very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble for them. The room was lovely and all the little extras such as toiletries, sewing kit etc were great. The breakfasts were amazing - same sort of range of choice as a cruise ship and tasted really delicious.We've already booked for next year!

We have been staying at Sandon for a week every year for the last 8 years. The en-suite accommodation is excellent, tastefully decorated, and has recently been refurbished and upgraded. There is a great variety of food available for breakfast, which is always expertly cooked by Stephen and served by Margaret, who always offer us a warm welcome and help with the luggage. You will have to go a long way to find a B&B as good as this one.

Room Tip: Rooms 1,2 and 3 are on the first floor, 4,5 and 6 on the 2nd floor.

We stayed here for 3 nights last weekend to attend the Convention and found it excellent. The twin room was lovely, with everything you needed and very clean. The breakfast was lovely with a nice choice of fruit for starters. Steve and Margaret made us very welcome and we will certainly be back to stay with them again.

Very friendly owners and clean rooms. A short walk from the town centre so close enough for easy access, but not too close to be plagued by noise. Would definitely stay again on my next trip to the lakes.

Sandon is in the city center but very quiet and about 15 mins to walk to the Derwent Water. Overall the location is good.
The breakfast is excellent and room is modern and clean.
This b&b is good value and worth to stay.

Have stayed here for 5 nights over the last few years. It's in a great location with free on street parking. Steve and Margaret always make us very welcome and the breakfasts are delicious.
The rooms are very well eqipped, comfortable and everywhere is spotlessly clean and well decorated. There are lots of extras in the shower; shower gel and cap, body lotion, shampoo and conditioner, sewing kit, shoe cleaning set etc. There are always biscuits with the hot drink making facilities with chocolates on arrival.
2minutes walk and you're in the town square and it's an ideal place to stop for walkers or just to admire the views.

Room Tip: All rooms are very comfortable
