I originally was hoping for a more old style inn but quickly settled into the comforts. The staff was wonderful, room well appointed with a super comfy bed, and great breakfasts. The bar area was modern yet comfortable too, and all the barmen really nice and friendly, and all made the best Pimms cocktails I've ever had...and I've had a...

I stayed here on a weekend away with my husband. I know Keswick well and although I had seen the hotel I had never stayed there. It is expensive but it is obvious that there has been a lot of money spent on the decor and furnishings. The standard is high and the fittings are good quality. The location cannot...

Lovely hotel in the centre of Keswick. Expensive but because of the location and the décor I would expect to pay their rates. The room we had was a Town room and was unbearably hot and we couldn't turn down the heat. There was a large fan in the room to cool you down but to me it ruined the...

Stopped here for a drink and some nibbles about 2pm, we ordered a sharing nibbles platter and some chips of which we waited 50 minutes for the nibbles platter (which consisted of mainly putting some food on a plate) and we had finished that before the chips even arrived. The establishment wasn't very busy and the waiter didn't even apologise...

Having stayed here for the first time this year I was very pleased that I did. The hotel is amazing, decorated to a very high standard and maintained to perfection. Great deal for parking in one of the car park (just make sure you're in the correct car park and the permit is clearly displayed). The food is absolutely incredible...

3 nights at this hotel for a short break in the Lake District. First impressions very good indeed. The refurbishment programme has delivered a very smart looking and clean hotel right in the town centre. Perhaps a bit more expensive than other hotels in the vicinity but not "over the top".The reception staff are particularly helpful. We were initially allocated...

We stayed at the Inn on the Square for one night. The hotel is presented well and the rooms are clean well kitted out. We had dinner at the Brossen steakhouse in the hotel. The food was excellent and the wine choice was good and reasonably priced. The highlight for us was the staff. They were very attentive and friendly...

After a poor experience I returned. I'm so glad I did. Laura was 5star. Recommended food and wine and it was perfect. Went into the bar afterwards where I relaxed and enjoyed friendly banter with the bar staff who were superb.
