Allerdale House Keswick

Reviewed 13 July 2012

This b&b is within the centre of Keswick, literally minutes away from the town's everything. The host Paul and Barbara are exceptionally nice, warm, friendly *im running out of words to describe*. We were on our vacation with my parents so we had 2 rooms, all on the top floor, it was just a few flights of steps but it didnt really matter. They gave us lots of tips information around the neighbourhood. We stayed for 2 nights and it just felt like home. Everything was clean and tidy and comfortable and its just simply no way you could complain for a place like it. The breakfast was with choices and not to say it tasted really good, thanks to Barbara and Paul for everything that they have done to make our stay a welcomed one and it would definitely be on our recommend list should we or our friends visit Keswick again.

Room Tip: Rooms have thin wall but top floor rooms would definitely be a better choice.

Having arrived just in time to watch the football European Championship Final I can safely say that Allerdale House is the equivalent of the Spanish football team - as near to perfection as you're ever likely to get! My thanks to Paul and Barbara. It is obvious that they take great pride and joy in providing an excellent standard of service, theirs is a natual friendliness that you don't always find. The pot of tea and biscuits on arrival was much appreciated. I was here for 5 days fell walking and the breakfast kept me going throughout the day - a great choice of starter followed by a well cooked full english and as much toast as I could eat. I had room 5 (the single) - spotlessly clean and benifiting from the luxury of a bath - great for relieving the aches and pains of a days fell walking! Location couldn't be better as it's in a quiet street but 5 minutes walk from the town centre. I have been a regular visitor to the beatiful town of Keswick and hope to visit again soon - will try to book as far in advance as possible to ensure that I get to return to Allerdale House.

This b&b is in an excellent position, literally a few minutes walk to the centre of Keswick. The owners, Paul and Barbara have that rare skill of being warm and welcoming hosts, willing to help with places to go, etc yet are in no way intrusive. We booked at the last minute and managed to get the last room for three nights. This was on the small side for us but had all the facilities you need. The room and shower room were spotless as was the rest of the house. Breakfast was great with cereals, fruit and juices, choice of various cooked breakfast combinations and endless toast and tea. The poached eggs were the nicest I have had anywhere! If we book in future then we would go for a larger bedroom although the one we had met all our needs. From other comments we will try for room 1!

Room Tip: Room 2 is smallish but perfectly formed! Room 2 is on the small side but perfectly formed. I...

We stayed for two nights at this lovely guest house. I was looking for some where to stay prior to taking part in a 4 Peak challenge. This involved walking Skiddaw, Scafell Pike, Scafell and Helvellyn. I was looking for a bit of luxury before heading off for 3 days of serious walking and basic camping! We chose Room 6 because it had a beautiful, spacious bathroom (with bath!) and a large comfortable bed.
Barbara and Paul were friendly and extremely helpful but also respected your privacy and made us feel very relaxed in their lovely home.
Although the weather was 'damp!!!', we enjoyed the seating area at the front of the guest house for a evening drink before walking to the local Italian restaurant for an excellent meal. Excellent location to walk into Keswick centre. Private, off road parking Lots of great places to eat and loved the little cinema. We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Room 6 has a large bathroom with bath, very spacious bedroom is with 2 chairs and coffee table and...

My husband and I stayed in a superior king room (number 1) which was HUGE, with a sofa and dual aspect with views towards Walla Crag.

What we liked;
Great personal service from Paul and Barbara, especially the welcome coffee and biscuits in the lounge on arrival. This is obviously a labour of love for them and it shows; they are the perfect hosts and hence this is our top comment.
Private parking on site.
Great location, approx. 5 minutes’ walk into the centre of Keswick.
Scrumptious breakfasts!
Easy to use website including a floor plan for each room with photos to help you decide which one to book.

Know before you go;
We can’t think of anything else you’d need to know!
