Positive Reviews

Delicious breakfasts and very nice staff

The full English and alternative breakfasts served up here were deemed to be absolutely scrumptious, well-cooked, accompanied with continental options and served with a lovely smile from the staff member running the breakfast service. In addition to this, the owner and other people working at the bed and breakfast were also thought to be nice, welcoming and helpful.

Clean, cosy and peaceful rooms

Guests considered the rooms and beds here to be very cosy, clean and comfortable and also mentioned that the bed and breakfast was located in a peaceful residential spot.

Short walk to Keswick centre and Derwentwater

If you book a stay here, you will apparently find yourself just a short walk away from the centre of Keswick and all the pubs, shopping and dining the town has to offer, while the Derwentwater lake was also mentioned as being reachable on foot.

Negative Reviews

Parking tough, small rooms, decor dated

The only negative points that guests who stayed here noted were that it was a bit hard to find on-street parking in the busiest parts of the year, that the rooms themselves were not particularly large, with the beds taking up most of the space and finally, some thought that the decor in their quarters could do with a bit of a refresh and a new coat of paint.
