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. The owners and their staff are kind and approachable people, the history and architecture of the building itself is alluring and the surrounding scenery...

Booked rooms online for a family holiday and phoned to ask a few follow-up questions. I was told that the hotel does not accept children, which is unfortunate for us, but good to know before we showed up on their doorstep. However, when I tried to explain that it is quite possible to book online for a family with small...

This reviewer has not stayed at Lairbeck. She booked rooms via a booking agent where it is quite explicit that we do not take bookings for children. The booking agent process only allows adults to be included in the booking. This is a copy of the booking cancellation with the booking agency: Cancellation Summary Room 1: Gran’s Room - Deluxe...

I stayed here recently with my boyfriend for two nights, I'd never been to a b&b before but was extremely impressed. The hosts were very polite and catered to any of my needs. The location is beautiful in a little village just a 15 minute walk from both Keswick centre and Derwent waters. I stayed in 'the cook's' room, which...

We wanted a comfortable hotel in Keswick away from the town centre. The Lairbeck fit the bill very well. It is about 10 minutes walk from the centre, and is located in a nice quiet road just a few minutes walk from a good pub/restaurant. The hotel has its own gardens where you can sit and enjoy a drink from...

We stayed at the Lairbeck Hotel for four nights and were pleasantly surprised were the hotel was situated. It was only 10 minutes walk from the town centre but was away from the hustle and bustle.
