Stayed as part of a large stag group for a weekend. We've endured some grim places before, but this was definitely not one of them. The rooms were a decent size, although needed some more wardrobe facilities. The beds were extremely comfy not just by hostel standards - but by hotel ones. A solid mattress and pillow meant I managed to get a good night's sleep.
The staff were welcoming, and particularly supportive when we went on the ghyll scrambling they organised for us. The bathrooms were clean, although the shower was a trifle underpowered. Breakfast was adequate without being anything more.
It was well situated for the centre of Keswick, being no more than a ten minute amble away, and there was plenty of space of parking.
My only major concern was the lack of acceptable security - ie, not being able to lock our room and having to pay £1 per time to use a locker.
Overall though we were very satisfied, and it offers fine value for money.
