Rated as 5 out of 5


Situated in a quiet one way street, this accommodation is literally no more than a five minute stroll from the heart of tourist Keswick. Well presented throughout, the on suite bedroom was obviously well prepared, spotlessly clean and well furnished with comfortable beds. The room also had TV, free Wi-Fi and tea and coffee making facilities. The room was serviced daily, within the restrictions imposed as necessitated by the current Covid situation. A variety of breakfasts were on offer and the full English, freshly prepared and well presented was the best I have eaten in any BB or comparably priced hotel anywhere in the UK. The hosts were exceedingly nice people. Four stars from the AA and five stars from me.
