“Another fantastic weekend”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

My wife and I were in Keswick 3 days walking and my birthday . We stayed at Portland House, my 3rd visit , and I have to say it was a good as ever. Rod and Denise very friendly, the room , number 4 I think was very clean , and a good size.
I know there are 100's of bed and breakfast in Keswick but I wouldn't stay anywhere else for choice , very close to centre of Keswick, but in a quite street.

This was booked for my parents (we have previously visited). They loved it as much as we did and couldn't stop talking about what great people Denise and Rod are and what a lovely place to stay it is.

Rod and Denise are wonderful hosts who do everything possible to make your stay enjoyable. It was a pleasure to meet them. The room (room 4, with a double bed and a single bed) was large with two bay windows, immaculately clean, light and quiet. The view from the windows was of gabled houses in the local stone and when the sun shone in the evening in particular it was lovely. The only downside of the room was the very small bathroom. Breakfast was very enjoyable, excellent porridge and a chat with other guests and with our hosts. All in all, a thoroughly enjoyable stay.

Thank you Paul for this review, it was a pleasure to meet you and your family. We are pleased you enjoyed staying in our room 4 which is our largest room that can sleep up to 3 people and guests comment that they enjoy the space and views from the windows. Our guesthouse was originally a large Victorian town house and has seen many changes over the years. Sadly, the en-suite for the room is not the largest in the house but at least does have a large shower. We plan to re-furbish the room later in the year and aim to make better use of the space.
Best wishes

Put simply, Portland House is an awesome B&B that ticks all the boxes required. Location is excellent...a couple of minutes stroll into the centre of Keswick. Beds are brilliant and extremely comfortable. Rooms have all the amenities you need from free wi-fi to home made short bread. Our bathroom was recently refurbished and was excellent. The level of cleanliness and attention to detail is second to none.

The breakfast here is fantastic; produce is locally sourced and is delicious.

By far the best feature of this B&B is Denise and Rod's hospitality. We have stayed before and they make you feel incredibly welcome. Their efforts to make Portland House a top choice for visitors are clear, as is their genuine desire to assist once you arrive. Help such as loaning walking equipment and maps gives a highly personal approach. I very much look forward to visiting again.
