Picked Portland House pretty much from the reviews on TripAdvisor, and after a further look on the website found that they were fellow bikers so the deal was done! Visited for a few days solo walking so took the single room. The room was spotless, a good size with a great shower room and a view of Blencathra, what more...

We really appreciate the great comments you have made in this review - thank you. We are pleased you enjoyed your walking break and after chatting about motorbikes, maybe you will come back one day and Rod can ride out with you?!

Fabulous accommodations with friendly, helpful owners, Denise & Rod. They have excellent information on the area, yummy snacks, delicious cooked-to-order breakfasts and comfortable bedrooms. Plus the Portland House is in a very central location, close to everything in Keswick. Definitely the place to stay if visiting Keswick and the Lake District

My partner and I stayed for a 4 night break12th - 16th September . What can I say, everything about our stay at Portland House was excellent. The room was very comfortable, clean and with all the little extras that you don't always get but are always a bonus! The bed was one of the most comfortable we have both...

Having been before a few years ago I knew this was a good B&B, but I'd forgotten how good. Denise & Rod manage to walk that difficult line between being friendly and interested while still giving you your privacy, making it a pleasure to stay here. The highlight has to be the food - the breakfast, the shortbread left in...

Thank you Andy for the great comments in this review. We were pleased to welcome you back to Portland House and that you found it even better than you remembered! Denise has made the shortbread ever since we took over the guesthouse, preferring it to the packets of bought biscuits (we always seem to get ones we don't like when...

We always look forward to seeing you both and thank you for posting another great review for us. You were fortunate to have good weather for your stay and were certainly able to get out and do plenty of walking. Next time we will know which flask to put the sugar in!

A truly brilliant B & B. Very clean, welcoming and friendly. On arrival Denise was really helpful with information about the local area. Homemade biscuits were delicious. Good choice of food at breakfast, all served freshly cooked. Will definitely be booking Portland House again for our next trip to Keswick. Couldn't ask for a better location. Perfect.

Denise and Rod made us feel at home from the minute we walked through the door! There was nothing we could fault. Little touches like Denise's homemade shortbread, the beautiful toiletries and suggestions of day trips, complete with map, added to our stay. Our room was spacious and luxurious with a spotlessly clean luxury ensuite. After a wonderful night's sleep,...

Portland House is the perfect place to stay in Keswick – a short walk from the centre, but tucked away from the busier parts of town. Rooms are clean, smart, and modern. The ensuite bathroom in the single room I stayed in was newly fitted with a great shower. Denise and Rod's hospitality was wonderful, and the food excellent. Very...

Ideal location close to the town centre, but far enough away to ensure peace and quiet at night. Denise and Rod make you feel at home from the minute you arrive.
