Recently and beautifully renovated lovely old building in the centre of the town. The staff were just brilliant - consistently pleasant and professional. I stayed here for 6 nights in November with a mixture of weather- wet and windy and cold and snowy. The hotel was warm and comfortable and my single room just about big enough.This could be improved... More

First visit since many years ago when it used to be The Queens Hotel. The building has undergone an amazing transformation and is now a beautiful modern establishment. When you come in, it feels warm and inviting and the Christmas decorations are most tasteful. We were staying for 1 night DBB. The room was smallish but had all we needed... More

Great place. Central, comfortable and warm. Nearing Christmas beautifully decorated. Modern inside with spacious seating. Good range of wines and beers. Pleasant helpful staff. Easy access but there are a few steps to the lobby. Both bar food and restaurant menu. Free wifi.

Very well located hotel. We stayed here with our two labradors and nothing was too much trouble. The dogs were welcomed (even though they were a little excited). We were able to eat dinner and breakfast at the restaurant, or just outside it along with three other couples that had brought their pooches too. As others have said the rooms... More

We booked here for a one night getaway to the lakes with our puppy and it's honestly the best hotel I've stayed in in the UK! Meant to book thursday to Friday but for some reason I booked Friday to Saturday which would mean me leaving at 5.30am but they changed dates via email no problem so it was already... More

We got a good deal and stayed there in April and got a lovely G&T on arrival(part of the deal) the hotel is right in the centre of Keswick which for us was great for sampling the nightlife. The food was great and I particularly liked the breakfast. We are returning soon for another well anticipated stay.
