“Perfect place to spend our 10th Wedding Anniversary”
Reviewed 5 October 2011

Had a Fab 2 night stay on the last weekend of September 2011. This was our second visit and Rod and Denise were as accommodating and friendly as they were on our first. Immaculate rooms with great attention to detail, excellent location and most importantly a top class hearty breakfast (don't think we would have made it up Skiddaw without it!). Looking forward to our next visit already.

Enjoyed a 2-night stay here in Sept. Rod and Denise were warm and friendly as well as helpful. The room was spotless and lovely, the breakfast excellent. My linen request was granted cheerfully. The location is perfect, close to town yet quiet. Overall just great!

Portland House is located close to the town centre (less than 5 minutes walk). The room was spotlessly clean, We were welcomed with tea and shortbread.The breakfast was excellent and if you are planning a trip to Keswick you wouldn't be disappointed.

This was a fantastic B&B that is made all the better by Rod and Denise who are a great couple and make you feel welcome the moment you walk in the door. The Breakfast was out of this world and the perfect start for a days walking.Its ideal location being a 5 minute walk to all the pubs and centre and of course a perfect location for beautiful walks recommended to us by Rod and Denise they even lent us maps, The B&B itself is on a residential street with plenty of parking nearby so an added bonus, we managed to parked directly outside the B&B. If you stay in Keswick then your stay will be all the better for staying at Portland House we had a fantastic break and will definitely return.

Stayed twice in August, service excellent. A good place to stay, close to the town. The breakfast is freshly cooked and is very good. our room was clean and bright, well equiped with tea making facilities, hairdryer and other little extras that make this B&B stand out from others we have stayed in.

Just back from a rather wet cycling few days in Keswick and Whinlatter Forest with my husband. Stayed at the Portland Hotel, right in the centre of keswick town, for the first time and WILL definately be returning again. Denise and Rod were the perfect host, very freindly, nothing too much trouble and their help and advice on the local area was invaluable. The Hotel is spotless and the rooms have everything you could ever want. We had a pack lunch which was delicious and enough to feed 4 people not just 2. The breakfast, cooked by Denise and served by Rod was excellent. if you're thinking of visiting Keswick then this is the hotel for you
