Over the top with Covid measures and correspondence made the experience less enjoyable. Other well known hotel chains taking precations but nowhere near this level. Maybe its because its an older peoples venue they are taking safety levels like a care home would.

Comfy bed. Lovey views from the room which was large with plenty of space. Hotel was peaceful and quiet. Well organised with COVID 19. On the other hand Shower is outdated, and for the price I would of expected breakfast included.

Quiet corner of bustling town
The hotel has a great location provided you don'y mind a 10 minute stroll into town - it has free parking which is rare in Keswick and a nice garden area to chill out in - no fell views but very attractive. Our room - 5 - was huge and bright with a large bay window. Staff were friendly and keen to help. The Pheasant Inn is round the corner - good pub food - and the hotel has an honesty bar. The hotel is also on the 'right' side of the town i.e. you do not have to go through the slow traffic in the centre in busy periods to access the A66 and the rest of the Lakes. Skiddaw is walkable from the hotel - give yourself the whole day! Recommended.
