Everything was perfect, from the moment we walked in to the unfortunate moment when we had to check-out. Karen and Richard are full of helpful information and made our stay in Keswick very comfortable. Would recommend Clarence Guesthouse to stay whilst in Keswick to people of all ages! Thanks again to Karen, Richard and Alfie. Can't wait to be back!

Great totally immaculate guest house close to Keswick town centre. Richard and Karen couldn't be more helpful and Richard was very knowledgable with everything in The Lakes.

Freshly cooked breakfasts were lovely too.

Would highly recommend this guest house.

We stayed here in July and it was the best b and b we have ever stayed in. Nothing was too much trouble. Richard and Karen were the perfect hosts. There was no need to visit the information bureau as Richard gave us all the information we needed for walking including maps. We knew of some things we wanted to do and Richard gave us many more ideas. The bedroom was comfortable and spotlessly clean. The location was ideal as it is in a very quiet street but not far from the centre of Keswick. Karen's breakfasts were lovely with plenty of choice.We also met Alfie the dog who is very friendly. If we go back to Keswick we would definitely stay at Clarence House again.

Dear Sandra

We are extremely grateful to you for choosing to stay at Clarence House and for taking the trouble to post this very kind review. It's really nice for us to know that your holiday in Keswick was a success for you (despite some mixed weather) and we hope that our hospitality and service was a key ingredient in that. Many of our guests comment on our location being ideal, as you say nice and quiet but a short easy walk to everything.

Thank you again and best wishes for the future

We have just returned from a four night stay at Clarence House B&B in Keswick. It has been some time since I posted a review on Tripadvisor but felt compelled to after such wonderful hospitality.

Richard and Karen are nothing short of exceptional hosts! From the moment we stepped inside Clarence House, Richard was very friendly and helpful. If you are a keen on sampling the multitude of outdoor activities which this area has to offer, Richard is extremely knowledgeable, especially when it comes to climbing the regions many hills. He even lent us a local walking guide, which was very kind.

Karen's breakfasts were, in short, the best breakfast's I've had in a B&B! (And I've sampled a fair few over the years trust me!) Always fresh, perfectly cooked and piping hot!

The location of Clarence House could hardly be better, just a few minutes stroll to the lake and town centre, yet on a very quiet residential road.

It's testimony to Richard and Karen that their B&B is already regarded as one of the very best places to stay in Keswick. Spotlessly clean rooms, a perfect location, lovely food and warm and friendly hospitality.

I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Clarence House to anybody planning a stay in Keswick...you won't be disappointed!

Having stayed at Clarence House a few times now I looked forward to a warm welcome. From the moment I arrived from Penrith station on the bus, which is a very easy journey I felt very relaxed. It is true the weather was not great for walking the hills but as the property is such a short walk from Keswick town centre I was able to find plenty of things to occupy my time. As usual both Karen and Richard showed great concern that my stay was comfortable and by the time I returned home I felt very chilled.

Room Tip: Have stayed in several rooms and all are of the same high standard.

This was our third stay in as many years and it has been as good as the first. We have been visiting Clarence House since it first opened and enjoy it so much that we have gone back every year since. Richard and Karen provide a warm and friendly welcome and the accommodation is excellent. Karen's breakfasts offer a comprehensive choice and last nearly all day. Richard not only provides extensive advice and if necessary books for walks and places to visit, but also has first hand experience of the best places to eat and drink in the evening. In summary we would recommend Clarence House to anyone planning a visit to Keswick. We will certainly be visiting again next year.

Thank you so much for posting this wonderful review. As one of our very first guests, when we opened in July 2012, it is really gratifying to have you return to stay with us each summer. We really do appreciate having such loyal, friendly and cheerful guests like yourselves and we hope you will continue to make the long journey up north to come and see us each year.

Thanks again and our very best wishes

What a wonderful time we had visiting Keswick in August. We stayed for 2 nights at Clarence House. Everything from the time we arrived to when we left was perfect. We were greeted by Richard who kindly helped us with our bags and showed us our room. Our room was spotlessly clean. We had a full English breakfast both mornings which was a wonderful start to the day. Richard and Karen were both great at letting us know places to eat or where best to cycle. I have recommended Clarence House to my family and friends and we will be back for sure.
