“Just wonderful !”
Reviewed 26 August 2011

From the initial telephone enquiry to book a room, right to the moment we left, we were made to feel so welcome. The room was spacious and spotlessly clean. Rod and Denise greeted us warmly when we arrived and offered us a choice of a pot of tea or coffee as we unpacked, which after a long journey was great. The breakfasts were fabulous and freshly cooked to order as we ate the fresh fruit salad or cereal. Rod gave great advice on where to visit and was a first class waiter! Denise cooked breakfast beautifully too !! They are a genuinely friendly couple and the guest house was excellent value for money. It's a pity we couldn't stay for longer. We will definately be back.

Lovely spacious and bright building, good location for the town. Denise and Rob are very friendly and helpful with ideas and advice. The room was spacious and we loved the clean ,bright decor,large window and the good size en suite. The breakfast was freshly prepared and cooked to order with lots of choice. Especially liked the fruit salad and yogurts along with cereals to help yourself to. Rob remembered personal food and drink preferences brilliantly, it is a pleasure to chat to him in the dining room .This creates an amiable atmosphere among the guests.

Room Tip: We had the blue room at the top of the house , but they all look lovely.

We booked last minute on a motorbiking holiday on the basis that they offered parking for motorbikes. . What a find! Rod answered the door and his eyes lit up, 'oh, I wish I'd known you were coming on a bike'... Superb room, fantastic people, good value for money . We will be back down!

I have always been very unsure about staying in B&B's, this was our first time and what a great experience. The couple who own it a very nice people, nothing is a trouble, make you feel very welcome and do anything to help make your trip memorable. The rooms are very clean with good facilities, and most importantly a brilliant breakfast! All in all 10/10 no negatives at all.

Denise and Rod are very welcoming and friendly we had a very pleasant stay for 3 nights, spacious, clean, well furnished rooms and a fantastic breakfast which was an ideal start for a days walking.

Plenty of good eating places and pubs in keswick, if you are hungry try the cow pie at the George Hotel!

Stayed 2 nights over a weekend to go walking locally - looked after magnificently by our hosts Denise and Rod.
Breakfast was freshly prepared to order, delicious and as enormous as you wanted it to be - a huge array of options on the traditional full English!
Our room was clean and perfectly suitable, with lovely homemade shortbread accompanying the tea/coffee making facilities ...
There's even the option for packed lunches to be provided if you're planning an excursion...
All-in-all a near perfect traditional British Bed & Breakfast I'd recommend to anyone ...!!!

We recently stayed Friday-Monday. Our room was clean, comfortable and decorated to a high standard. A ground floor twin-room of the same standard is available for disabled guests. This room was used by my elderly Mum who requires a wheelchair. She found the bathroom met her needs with suitable shower & toilet facilities. Denise & Rod are a very friendly, helpful couple who made our stay perfect, apart from the weather!! Breakfast was well prepared, presented and delicious!
