“Excellent value b&b with lovely hosts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2013 via mobile

I stayed for x1 night as I was walking in the Keswick mountains. I had a single room not en suite. The bathroom was very well laid out and a good size. The bedroom whilst small was very clean with lovely crisp fresh towels. The breakfast was excellent and even though I have a huge appetite I struggled to finish the beautiful full English . The owners are eager to make the stay enjoyable.
I will definitely stay again and recommend this establishment . Very competitively priced.

Good plain, honest, value for money accommodation. The single room I had was small, but perfectly adequate and not cramped, and there was no scrimping on anything - indeed, complementary Kendal Mint Cake as well as biscuits, good quality TV, and the use of a dressing gown and superb shared bathroom for single guests. The owners were pleasant and very accommodating, they filled my coffee flask for a donation put in the Mountain Rescue collection box. Good breakfast, good location, a brisk 5 mins walk to the town centre from the top of Eskin Street down St John's Street, past the cinema. What's not to like?! Guess the parking in the street may be problematic in high season - the whole street is full of B&Bs, but I had no difficulty.

Nice traditional B&B, clean rooms with comfy beds and excellent en suite (well room 2 is anyway)

Breakfast is as big as you want, cereal etc help yourself and order hot food, from traditional English (with vege option) down.

Easy walk to the town centre

Run by a local couple

One of the biggest positives is that they take single night bookings, not many others do, C2C followers etc TAKE NOTE!

Room Tip: Room 2 is a big room.

We stayed here on the penultimate night of an 80-mile 6 day walk around the Lake District last month. I agree with most of the previous reviews - the room was fine and the breakfast was pretty good (my walking chum even said it was the best porridge of the week), but all of this was rather spoiled by the slightly 'surly' manner of the landlord. On arrival he was not very welcoming, and at breakfast everything seemed to much of an effort. This contrasted poorly with the great experiences we had at all of our previous stays, which was a real shame.

Great location, parking on street outside and just five minutes walk into the centre of Keswick.

Excellent hosts - very accommodating and friendly.

We have holidayed in Keswick for over 20 years, in many different B&B's, and this is the best value B&B we have found. You can book one night here, which many B&B's do not accept.
Little things make a big difference - for example - you can check in at mid-day which means you get a place to park and can make the most of your first day; the bedroom was quiet and the bed was comfortable so we got a good nights sleep; the en-suite room had been recently refitted with a quality invigorating shower; the english breakfast was very generous and high quality sausage and bacon - not too salty. The owners are lovely and really care about their B&B and their quests.
We enjoyed our stay here a lot and would love to come again next year when we can stay for more than one night.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 1 which had newly fitted shower, partial view towards Walla Crag and was quiet des...

We stayed here for 2 nights over the weekend 19 - 21 Oct and from stepping into the hallway we were made to feel at home by the nicest couple you could meet. The rooms were lovely and cosy and the full English breakfast was great. We will be certainly be staying here again.
