Hotel looks Lovely although we have not stayed there yet! We popped in for a coffee in the afternoon then later for a gin n Tonic. Lovely bar area surrounding the sad bit was that it was very quiet! We will be back to Keswick later in the year and hopefully get to stay here!

Because my husband has mobility problems, we use accessible rooms. The room at Inn on the Square was nice and had a particularly good bathroom. The hotel is in a good location and the hotel parking was easy to find and convenient. It needs to be booked in advance. Staff are pleasant and professional.

Stayed here for 2 nights on a dinner bed and breakfast package. The staff could not do enough for us, especially Dan who parked our car for us on arrival. The restaurant was very special, best steaks we have had! Breakfasts were great. Lovely central location, our room overlooked the market. We did'nt have our dogs with us this time,...

We had a very reasonably priced afternoon tea in the recently refurbished restaurant. Despite our reservation being in the middle of a shift changeover, we were very well looked after. The sticky toffee pudding was delicious! We are not easily offended and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. However, it would be worth noting that you can hear everything the chefs say...

The Hotel is in the centre of Keswick and the renovation from of the old 'Queens Hotel' Is superb. It is a 'Dog' friendly Hotel with lovely rooms, the icing on the cake is the restaurant, it is best to make a reservation as it always appears to be busy, maybe a little more expensive than most, but the food...

I cannot praise this Hotel enough. We have been twice this year in January and again in March. All in all we have probably stayed about 5 times! On saying that, I wouldn't stay anywhere else when visiting Keswick. We absolutely love the Herdwick rooms, we have yet to try a Town room as we can't get enough of those...

Checked in for our two night break to celebrate our wedding anniversary and was mightily impressed with the décor and the layout of the hotel which is done in Scandinavian style. Our room was at the front and very quiet and comfortable. Parking was no problem at the public car park (a voucher from the hotel costs £2 per 24...
