We stayed here two nights. Its a nice old house, and whilst modernisation might address some niggles (eg no shower), it would also ruin the places period charm. Some other factors - the key system, the bar with no till - are a bit old fashioned. But there's nothing wrong with a bit of quirkiness. I would however suggest more...

Had a long weekend break in Keswick and read the reviews about the Lairbeck and they were spot on with the hotel being in a great location. Short walk to town and ideal place for exploring the lake district. The staff are friendly and the room very comfortable room and a lovely breakfast. Will definitely stay here again.

Hotel was located very near town, just a short walk! Very comfortable, warm, lovely breakfast. Could do with a little updating. The owners were very helpful. We would go back to stay again. Maybe next year it will have been updated. But I must say it was very clean!

The hotel is clean and comfortable in a gorgeous old historic Cumbrian building. We had a very comfortable bed and the breakfast was excellent. The welcome was warm and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The location is fantastic, being a short walk from Keswick but in a quiet and peaceful spot. Walks and hills are easily accessible and...

It's in an excellent location, only 10/15 min walk into town. Lovely old victorian building with great views of Skiddaw. Room was quiet, clean, and comfortable. Hosts were friendly and very helpful. Breakfast's included in the price, there was a good selection, and the full English breakfast wasn't greasy. Basically, I'll gladly stay there again!

I have recently returned from a weekend trip to the Lairbeck hotel and I can not recommend it enough! The location is ideal for any lake goer in that it's in such a tranquil location but is also only a 10 minute walk from the town centre. The rooms, owners, and breakfast were all fantastic and made myself and my...

I have just returned from a two night stay at the Lairbeck, which was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. From our very arrival we were greeted with a warm welcome and felt at ease throughout our stay.
