Stayed here on Sept 3rd & 4th - room 5. Room supposed to be "superior room" but was very narrow and decor tatty & certainly not refurbished recently as hotel literature suggests. Having said that, the room was spotlessly clean as was the on suite. This room is located at the front of the building and on Monday night it was impossible to have a good sleep due to the constant noise (until well into the early hours) from drunks shouting etc.in the street, also was woken very early by refuse collection lorry and dray delivery which seemed to go on for ages. The hotel though is in a good central location, the reception/bar/restaurant areas kept very clean and tidy. Staff, all seem to be Eastern European and they are all very friendly and exceptionally competent. Food served at this hotel is excellent and better most other places I have eaten in whilst in Keswick, the menu also provides excellent value as do the bar prices. All in all, this hotel is adequate and IMO provides good value.
