“Would love to stay here again”
Reviewed 11 February 2011

Spent just one night, but was made to feel very welcome. Definately a home from home. Room was lovely - modern, clean and comfy with en suit, and was certainly as good as more expensive guest houses Ive stayed in before. Situated close to the town but in a quiet side street, not overlooked and ideally situated for for everything in keswick. Breakfast was fantastic and I really would stay here again. Thanks Guys. Richard from Kent.

I stayed here for a winter break in Keswick with my husband and two young children. We stayed in a family room which was very spacious and comfortable. The owners were very welcoming and suggested some great places to visit, eg Puzzling Place and keswick climbing wall. Would definitely recommend to others and have booked another week stay in the summer.

My partner and I visited Keswick for a weekend break in November and looked at several bed & breakfast establishments on the internet before selecting the Lakemere. There were lots to choose from and we selected the Lake Mere as we liked the look of the rooms, however on arrival, we were disappointed that the photos on the website were quite deceptive. The photos gave the impression of modern, nicely decorated accommodation however in actual fact the place could do with being modernised and the decor being updated.

The propriotor however was very pleasant and gave us a map and some pointers about the town. The guest house is situated in a quiet part of town and the centre is easily accessible by foot. Keswick itself has plenty of restaurants and pubs and makes a great base for walking.

Whilst we felt a little disappointed with the standard of the rooms, the breakfasts were acceptable and on the whole we enjoyed our stay.

My husband and I had decided to go for a short break over Easter and I searched the internet and discovered this lovely little retreat just a few minutes walk from Keswick town centre and Fitz Park. It is only a short drive to Grasmere, Aira Force and Watendlath for those who want to see some wonderful sights without the fell walking. Once we got to our room - a king size which was light, airy, well co-ordinated in a contemporary style and spotlessly clean, I knew we had been fortunate indeed. Dawn, our host was very warm and friendly - the breakfast was delicious and the service excellent. Dawn went to great lengths to offer advice on local services - she checked the bus routes on her lap top for us. I think that we got very good value for money and I hope to contact Dawn for our next break - hopefully she will not be fully booked! Thank you, Dawn, for a relaxing stay.

Reviewed 10 December 2008

This b&b is only 3-4 minutes flat walk from Keswick town centre, and we booked for this reason, and the fact that they do not allow dogs (I am allergic). Unfortunately, the reason they don't allow dogs is because they have their own dogs on the premises, and therefore I had a very uncomfortable weekend. However, you live and learn, so when I book a b&b in future I'll be sure to ask that question as well!
Our room was nicely decorated, although quite small, and had an en-suite bathroom with no heating (fine in the summer, very cold in December). The breakfast was fine, with the usual cereals, fruit juice, cooked breakfast and tea/coffee and toast. The owner is very friendly and helpful, and she is the reason I have marked this b&b as above average.

This guest house is very cosy and run by a lovely friendly couple. We booked the family room which was very spacious for 2 adults and 2 children to move about in. The house is 2 mins walk away from keswick town and is very close to Fitz park which is great for kids. We enjoyed our 2 nights in this delightful B&B and would definitely recommend it. The breakfast in the morning was perfect and just what you need for a days walking.

Stayed September 2007
