The Skiddaw is ideally located on the Main Street in the centre of Keswick with parking by means of a voucher system in the public car park at the rear of the hotel with direct access from...

Room was fine, bathroom was nice and clean....we had a front facing room on the top floor and the noise wasn't a problem for us? hardly heard a thing. Had breakfast...

I booked this Hotel back in February thinking getting a good deal but at £396 for 2 nights for 2 people for b&b evidently not. The room was ok (RM 26) but noisy early sat morning with market stalls being erected and sun morning with drunks wandering home. I checked on the Hotels website and I could have got dinner,bed...

Prior to retirement I used to stay in various hotels up and down the country, probably 3/4 nights per month, since retirement my wife and I like to get away at weekend, every couple of months. So I have a basis for comparison, and this hotel just didn't do it for me. Firstly £104.00 per night per person, is extremely...

We have stayed in Keswick on several occasions as we have a lot of family who live here, and this has always been the ideal place for us. However on this occasion we found that things were in need of bringing up to date. We had a lovely room which I don't have any complaints about, however although the meal...

We stayed for one night only on a Saturday with friends. The only room available was a standard ( we usually have deluxe rooms or suites) and we thought £208 for 1 nights bed and breakfast in a 3 star a bit steep. Saying that, the location was second to none and the room very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The...

While on holiday in the area we called in for a meal, We found the staff very friendly and helpful and excellent service and the food was very good.

The Skiddaw plods along, the food is equally plodding, sadly, nothing on the bar menu can be recommended same tedious 'toastie' sandwiches badly need revamping. I bet the slicing machine in the kitchen doesn't get much of a rest, just like the one in the Borrowdale Hotel, one of the classiest buildings in 'Borrwdale'. It's awful to see standards slump...

“Best view is the front facing rooms...but they also overlook the main street and apparently can be noisy. Top floor was fine though.”
