“Verry nice hotel but noisy at night”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2012

We stayed at the Skiddaw hotel for a Saturday night on a dinner, bed and breakfast deal. The room we were given was one of the original rooms - room 7 (some have been updated) but despite this it was a great big room with views over the main street. The staff were very helpful and gave us some ideas for walks in the area. The location of the hotel is excellent and the car park is also a big benefit.
Dinner was very nice and when although there were no vegetarian meals on the menu I was given a choice of 4 vegetarian options off a different menu. The service in the restaurant is excellent and staff are very attentive. Breakfast was also good quality however there was no vegetarian cooked breakfast and I was given the normal cooked breakfast minus the bacon and sausage which meant it was a smaller portion.
The problem we had on our stay was the noise at night. Due to the great location there was the downside of drunken people shouting and screaming in the main street until 3am which meant we finished our stay more tired than when we arrived!! When we informed staff we were not very happy about the noise they were not shocked, I am assuming this is because its a common complaint. I would love to go back to the Skiddaw hotel but I will make sure I request a room at the back of the hotel to minimise the noise.

Room Tip: request a room away from the main street

Stopped by to grab a late lunch on a quick cross country trip. Service was very good. I asked if they had a prawn cocktail (very 1970's but I love them!). The waiter who was more Eastern Europe than Lake District was very accommodating and said he would speak to the Chef. Not only did he make me a prawn cocktail but the salad with it had orange peel and dressing which gave a great flavor. Main meals we very nice. I would say good value, nice simple food.

We did not stay at the Hotel but it seemed warm, clean and welcoming.

Stayed at The Skiddaw Hotel with my husband and labrador dog. Very dog friendly hotel as is the whole of Keswick. Hotel staff could not have been friendlier. Wonderful breakfast served with a smile. Would definitely stay again.

Just briefly to say that I and my business colleague recently stayed at the Skiddaw Hotel, and I must say that it cannot be faulted - my room was very nice and looked newly updated, the food was great and the location was perfect, and not forgetting the very helpful staff.
I will definitely book this hotel again on my next visit to the Lake District
