Just spent one night here, had a great welcome from Steve who showed us around and gave us good advice on where to eat in the village (Royal Oak - huge portions, good value!) Our room was comfortable and clean, shower was on the small side but worked perfectly fine, to be picky we would have preferred bigger towels. Breakfast was very good with a nice choice, hot and perfectly cooked. Would stay again if in the area to do more mountain biking!

What a great place to stay, for once we did not feel like we were being shoved out of the way being walkers and being put into the smallest rooms available. Steve was very friendly and welcoming, the rooms were more than comfortable and clean and we had the use of our very own terrace.....brilliant. The breakfast was amazing...would reccomend this place...xxxx

Comfortable stay, excellent breakfast, lovely welcome and very clean, modern rooms. We particularly enjoyed the guest lounge with a wood burning stove to toast our feet after a fine winter walk. There were just a couple of minor problems: first, downstairs rooms facing the back don't get much view as the garden slopes steeply uphill, and second, the duvets on the single beds were a bit small, so our feet stuck out!

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms at the back will have a garden view. Rooms facing the front have the wonderful view...

We stayed here in October and had a fantastic time. We couldn't fault the Hermiston in any way. Steve and Tracy are so friendly and welcoming! The rooms were great, very modern and clean with beautiful views. The breakfasts were amazing!!!! We would 100% go back and without a doubt recommend. Thanks Steve and Tracy for a brilliant stay, look forward to coming back soon! Cameron and Sophie.

Stayed for 4 nights at the end of September with our 29 year old son. Room was very clean, modern and comfortable with a glorious view of the back garden where we saw rabbits and Red squirrels running about, as my wife loves animals she was delighted. Gavin had a room at the front and had a magnificent view of the fells.
The full english breakfast was fantastic, my wife had the scrambled egg with smoked salmon including Bucks Fizz and that was equally as nice.
The Hermiston is placed just a 5 minute drive from Keswick.
Will definately be going back as we enjoyed it so much.
Steve and Tracey run the perfect B+B +++++++++++++++++++

Another return visit, in glorious spring weather with not a cloud in sight for four whole days! And Hermiston - as usual - didn't disappoint, as other reviews will demonstrate.
So much so that we'd like to instigate the Best Breakfast In Britain Award, and award it immediately to Tracy & Steve at Hermiston! Cue lights, music and applause!
Many thanks again - a truly memorable break.

Room Tip: The rooms are all good - the ones at the front have magnificent views across to Skiddaw, although...

We've been to the hermiston 4 times now and would always choose it for a break in the lakes, if only for the amazing breakfasts! The only thing is though its a little bit out of the way and would be impossible to get there on public transport.
