My wife, myself and our dog had a one-night stay for the Keswick Mountain Festival. The hotel is situated on the main street so was close to all of the local amenities. We were able to park in one of the four spaces at the hotel but there is a large public car park 50 metres away. The hotel will give you a permit to park for a whole day for £2. The staff at the hotel were very efficient and friendly and actually seemed to enjoy their jobs which is not always the case. The room was spacious and ... Read more

Great location , right on the Main Street near shops and pubs, impressive conservatory at the front where you can watch the world go by, however the bedroom we were sold was very claustrophobic, and noisy. It is clear that having stayed in a number of hotels in the lakes including their sisters, Armathwaite Hall, and Lodore Falls, that this company spend a small fortune on soft furnishings and furniture for the rooms. We stayed for two nights in room 41, a wedding reception was taking place an... Read more

Stayed in the skiddaw and must say it was a comfortable and relaxing stay. The service was top class and the food lovely. Got a bargain, glass of proscco on arrival, dinner, bed and breakfast and to top it off in a 2 bedroom suite for very good price. Just topped off a week stay in the lakes in style, until I sadly went to the Brackenrigg the following night at Watermillock but the less said about that the better! As for the skiddaw in Keswick, thank you, will return and definitely recommend!!!

Me and my partner popped into their Bar & Conservatory for lunch today and at first it took the staff about 15 minutes to serve us, to the point where I thought I had to order at the bar. I asked the waitress what soft drinks they had and she said she wasn't sure and would have to check so we just ordered a coke. I ordered a burger (which was nice!) and my partner a club sandwich which arrived without chicken. When we asked for the chicken, it was brought out and looked like packet standard at ... Read more

Sadly we felt the hotel was overpriced and that we paid for the location which is excellent as it is right in the square, centre of Keswick town. The paint on the bathroom door was peeling and grout in the tiling cracked and missing in places. The carpets and wallpaper were very dated and in need of replacing. The breakfast was good and the staff were lovely

Great hotel if your dog is with you. They even provide towels to wipe muddy paws. Room was comfy although a little warm even with the window open. Be aware - we stayed on a Friday night and there was a lot of noise from the pizzeria next door keeping us awake until 3am. The hotel staff were apologetic the following morning and said that had we phoned the night porter they would have gone round to complain. Fabulous location right in the centre of town.

Spent the afternoon in Keswick and popped into the hotel for a cup of tea before leaving. The tea itself was fine, but the miniature cake I ordered with it was abismal. It was supposed to be a Victoria sponge cake, but the cream was not real (tasted like chemicals) and the sponge was freezer burnt. I wouldn't have served that to anyone. Maybe the rest of the menu is fine, but if you can't get a mini cake right, I wouldn't keep my expectations too high.

The Skiddaw Hotel is ideally situated right in the centre of Keswick town, in fact market day is just outside the hotel front door,everything at the hotel is just lovely, rooms and restuarant are faultless,the only downside are the parking facilities, just 4 spaces but you can park in the car park behind the hotel free with a pass from the hotel.

Keswick is a great place to stay in the Lake District and the whole area is designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty. The Skiddaw Hotel is right in the centre of the Keswick main street on the right side running up to the Moot Hall and in a way this is also one of its disadvantages as its right next door to a night club which means noise for those who are staying in rooms at the front of the hotel.

I visited with friends and family on Thursday last week and was extremely disappointed in the quality of the food and the time we had to wait (just under an hour). The chips were cold, my aunt sent her haggis back and my mums baked potato came with cheese she hadn't asked for. Very disappointed as we had recommended this place as last year we had a lovely meal. Maybe the chef was having an off day but service like this is totally unacceptable. Won't be back

Visited here for a pint and a scone. The scones were lovely and arrived warm with a plentiful amount of jam and cream.

Had to go for a team building event (YAWN). Hotel seemed dated and toilets weren't unpleasant but I was expecting them to be cleaner. No parking on site. However, staff went out of their way to provide an amazing vegan lunch for me!

We left it late before looking for a dog-friendly place in Keswick, but we landed on our feet here. The hotel is ideally located for enjoying the lakes and the interesting character of Keswick town. The food was good, service was friendly, and our room was just what we needed after a day out hiking. Dog owners can bring their mutt and dine in the conservatory, which looks out onto Keswick Main Street. We had a nice stay and we'll definitely look to book here again.

This lovely hotel is very conveniently situated in the centre of Keswick on a pedestrianised thoroughfare. Perfectly positioned for exploring the area. As part of a large coach party our arrival could have been a bit disorganised. but the lovely Maria had it all sorted, from greeting us warmly and explaining rooms, meal times etc, to handing out door cards, all with a lovely welcoming smile and a word for everyone.there is a lovely warm feeling about the hotel and I cannot praise the staff highl...

Stayed here many times.Great for families. Situate in the Square opposite one of its sister hotels and the location could not be better. Staff friendly and food is very good but unpretentious. There is aguest lounge with enough games to occupy the kids. Well worth a visit.

Some of the staff were very nice and friendly but some ... Read more

Staff were friendly but Doug bar tender was extremely helpful with difficulties I experienced with ordering meals. Although pre informed that I required gluten free meals non of the menus indicat...

I stayed there at the end of October. My room was directly across from the ladies toilet for the public bar. Constant noise from door slamming and hand drier. Through the night there was a constant fan from the neighbouring building, which is part of the same hotel chain. I had booked two nights but only stayed one. My arrival was unwelcoming as I was given the wrong room card to fill in, which I did then was told I should have read the card properly . I emailed my complaints but two weeks later... Read more

We booked a night here on Saturday 12th November and were very disappointed. The rooms were way too hot and when we complained were offered a small fan as the heating couldn't be changed! In addition we upgraded out booking to include dinner....why o why did we bother??!!! The duck starter was 3 slivers of see-through dry duck and when I complained was met with shrugged shoulders. My friend ordered scallops (plural) to start and got ONE, when we complained again we were simply told that "It ... Read more

We've stayed at The Skiddaw a few times for short breaks and always enjoy going back. On arrival we were pleased to find the hotel decorated for Christmas, The car park entrance to reception area was lovely with lots of lights and trees. Our rooms were recently refurbished, and had everything we needed. The food was very good although on the 2nd night none of us fancied any of the 3 main course choices, we were offered an alternative or a voucher to eat in the bar. (we took the alternative...

... As I'd been wandering around Keswick and needed to sit down with the dog! We were welcomed into the conservatory area and it was very comfortable seating, being able to people watch from the windows. Had a tea and scone with cream and jam (I know, greedy). Was alright, no complaints at all. Perhaps overpriced, but then Keswick is a very popular tourist location and that's to be expected! :)

Stayed on a one night winter warmth break last Sunday. Reception staff friendly but needed to have a better knowledge of what the break included. Had to asked them to check and then when we returned to the hotel having parked the car, I spoke to a manager who agreed my understanding of what the break included was correct. Room comfortable but very warm and my friend and myself found the pillows very uncomfortable. In the night our phone rang 3 times ( 1am, 3am and 6am) which disturbed our sleep.... Read more

This is one of those places I stay in on work trips I inwardly groan when I see where I'm booked. But sometimes I'm pleasantly surprised, and this was one of those. Situated in a central location in Keswick, this hotel benefits from having a public car park very close with guest passes. I was fortunate to be given a room which had clearly been very recently refurbished. Whilst the bathroom was a little over bright with its new lighting, the room was warm, comfortable, clean and well equipped. Br... Read more

The Skiddaw Hotel ticked all the boxes for us: Located at the heart of Keswick with permit parking adjacent, a short walk to Derwentwater and a longer walk up Skiddaw starting right from the hotel. Comfortable, well decorated, well equipped clean room with King size bed and smart en-suite. All food was cooked and presented perfectly (best breakfast poached eggs and bacon ever). Christmas decorations throughout are stunning and create great atmosphere. All staff and service entirely brilliant. Co... Read more
