The Kings Arms is a pub with rooms. It is lovely and clean and the staff were all pleasant, friendly and helpful. We had room 8 on the second floor overlooking the square. The room itself was on the small side; the bathroom was equipped with generous sized shower gel/shampoo etc, lovely fluffy towels and ear plugs which came in...

We visited on a rainy evening , hoping for a quick bar meal. But the bar was busy ( and there were several people with dogs, which always puts me off when food is being served..) so we were shown to the dining area, down a few steps and thankfully dog free! Service was good and portions huge- I had...

What a lovely homely hotel in the heart of Keswick. The bedroom was lovely with comfy beds and quality furnishings. The bar area is very pleasant to sit and enjoy a leisurely drink. Don't have a meal in the hotel but the breakfast was excellent. The only thing that I would say could be a problem for people with poor...

I found this pub on late rooms .com and decided to give it a go. This is a smashing B & B. The rooms are lovely. Spotlessly clean and elegant looking. I'd definitely go back. The only down side is that our room (14) was at the back of the pub and over looked the sports pub next door. There...

This was our first try staying in a hotel with our 2 year old Germany Wire Haired Pointer. We asked for a room overlooking the market square. Big mistake. Good points first. A great hotel with excellent food, accommodation & service. And a huge plus was the TV menu being devoid of Sturgeon. Three choices of eating places main restaurant,...

We love this place, it's a little more expensive but it's a hotel so to be expected. The food is really good but we knocked off a star because of the attitude of one member of staff. There is an offer for a double Gin and dash of tonic. So I asked for this with slimline tonic. When I paid...

Always friendly welcome have to go here when visiting Keswick. Very comfortable bar. The food is top notch. Would certainly recommend a visit for anyone wishing good food and service with a smile. Drinks are not too bad but as anywhere in Keswick they are pricey.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Newly refurbished AA 3 star Hotel right in the centre of Keswick, the Lake District. In the 17th century, Keswick was the crossroads for many of the horse and carriage routes which traversed this part of the English Lake District. The Kings Arms Hotel, a true Coaching Inn of that period, offers the traveller of today the same unrivaled hospitality and friendly service in keeping with its heritage. To stay at the Kings Arms Hotel in Keswick is to experience the legacies, in modern day comfort and luxury, of a true Coaching Inn. A warm and friendly smile awaits you from our well trained staff, whose aim is to make your stay one of many. The air-conditioned, newly refurbished restaurant serves appetising home-cooked dishes such as slow-cooked local lamb joints and the almost-famous spare ribs, beef & Jennings ale pie, delicious hand-cut, home-cooked chips plus mouth-watering hot and cold desserts. After a hearty meal, why not relax in front of the open fire with a drink in the newly-refurbished, cosy oak-beamed bar and watch the world go by outside on the streets of Keswick. With over 40 whisky's and some of the best local ales on tap the choice is yours. Or in the summer months take a seat in the charming courtyard, which is the perfect place to enjoy delicious food and a refreshing drink al fresco. There are 13 recently refurbished bedrooms all with their own shower rooms. ... more   less
