Standard room. Very comfortable, Ensuite excellent. Meals fabulous and service excellent. Wifi downstairs but not in room. No mobile reception. A great drying room which was great as we were doing the C2C walk and very wet...everything dry by morning. Had a single room, soap but no shampoo/conditioner. Cozy bar area.

Recently dined in the restaurant with friends whilst staying nearby. Lovely meal, very friendly staff, nothing too much trouble .One of our party had suffered an injury during our trip and the owner very kindly ensured we returned to our nearby accommodation safely by driving us himself ! Would definitely return . Many thanks

Warm welcome at the lodge, and excellent large drying room! Food was quite good and service very friendly. Wifi didn't work in the rooms, but was fine in the lounge. Breakfast was a combination of self serve and hot meal. All was good and the service was friendly.

The lounge and dining area were nice as was the food, staff also very friendly and helpful. But the bedroom was awful, dirty and very scruffy. You could barely read at night with the light on, it was so dim. Decoration was old and grim. Bed so uncomfortable, we could feel the springs though the mattress, so didn't get much... More

Very small rooms, but clean and quiet. There was a extremely hot drying room for our boots which was needed. The food was fabulous. Best sea bass and fish pie ever!! The people who worked at the Keld Lodge were exceptional. Extremely helpful and professional.

Having stayed at several hotels from our walk on the C2C walk the Keld Lodge was certainly one of the best en route. From a warm welcome to a comfy room, I cannot fault the place.

Stayed here on the coast to coast. Great location on the path. Basic rooms that do the job. Plus of this accommodation are the great drying room, good bar and evening meal. Really good chance to sit and chat with fellow walkers in the small comfortable lounge.

We did the C2C walk in two stages - and were very glad we did, since it meant that we could return to Keld Lodge to pick up where we left off last year! This isn't a luxury place by any stretch of the imagination, but it is clean, comfortable and extremely friendly. Food in the restaurant is great, and... More
