“Great location, welcoming hosts, excellent breakfast”
Reviewed 22 November 2010

We stayed here for 3 nights and were not disappointed. We booked the best room which was very comfortable and even though it was on the road, it was very quiet and we had an excellent nights sleep. The location is perfect bang in the middle of Keswick so short walks to all pubs/restaurants. Jason was able to recommend places to eat/drink and these were good (and we are particular!!) Jason was also able to let us have detailed local knowledge to make the most of our stay - both walking and driving routes were well detailed and an excellent intro into the Lakes. The breakfasts were of a very high quality with plenty of choice - and whilst we didn't make use of the honesty bar, Jason was happy for us to borrow glasses!

We cannot fault this excellent bed and breakfast accommodation. It is very clean and comfortable and in a central location.We booked room 7, which is worth the long haul up the stairs for the fantastic views over the mountains and town. I really enjoyed sipping a glass of cold white wine from the honesty bar as I luxuriated in the spa bath after a day on the fells. The breakfast was excellent and the owners were helpful and pleasant. We were given a parking permit on arrival which allowed us free parking nearby.Next time we are in The Lakes we will certainly book in again.

My Husband and I needed a well earned break and we decided to try Keswick. We found this place on the internet. We are in the pub trade and know how long the working hours are! The service was fantastic. Alison and Jason were only too happy to help. They work extremely hard and should be proud of providing such a warm friendly place to stay. Our threenight break felt like a week....thank you.

Friendly, and efficient service. Plenty of advice form the owners without being in your face. Nothing too much trouble, and as perfect a poached egg as i've ever seen or tasted!
If your in the lakes you couldn't really find better for more money. Would definately visit again.

Just came back with a friend from our first trip to the Lake District. In Keswick we stayed with Jason and Alison for three nights. Having visited their website, and having read other reviews on the web before booking, we were already pretty sure we'd land very well in Keswick. But all turned out to be even better than we could've possibly imagined. A very warm welcome, fantastic beds in a very clean room and what must be the best very full English/ Cumberland breakfast we've ever had, Jason and Alison were also more than helpful in recommending good restaurants, alternative walking routes, supplying us with maps, and last but not least, recommending the best shop to help solve my aching foot problem (go to the fab George Fisher's!). Am sure we'll visit Keswick again, and will then certainly try to reserve a room at the Ravensworth Hotel again. Thanks again Jason and Alison! Best regards from Pieter and Katrin (Amsterdam and Berlin.)

Reviewed 17 February 2010

My wife and I stayed at the Ravensworth Hotel over the valentines weekend and we had a really enjoyable stay. I only booked the room after viewing their website where it looked cosy but not too small and it seemed to give the impression that it might have a decent view.
We phoned prior to arrival and the owner said they were on the school run and wouldnt be long. (unlike another reviewer I think hoteliers are allowed a life!) Alison,one of the owners warmly greeted us upon arrival and was open to any information we needed. Once up to our room (named Lords Seat) we were amazed by the view of the hills and mountains overlooking Keswick,we could even sit back on the bed and just gaze. The room was spanking crisp,clean and comfortable and the bathroom equally clean and modern with a very welcome spa bath. The breakfasts were mouthwatering and plenty of it.
Overall I think you could do a lot worse than give this hotel a try.
