Professional hospitality has been consistently offered since it was established, and a friendly smile awaits you from our welcoming staff, whose aim is to make your stay an enjoyable one.

Located in the town centre of Keswick it is the perfect base for exploring the Lake District with walking, cycling and a multitude of activities right on our doorstep. After a day out on the fells, you can relax in one of the 13 bedrooms all refurbished to a high standard with modern amenities – and you can rest assured our beds are superbly comfortable too. You will be surprised at just how cosy a stay at the Kings Arms can be. Guests of the Kings Arms have free use of the leisure club at our sister hotel just 3 miles down the beautiful Borrowdale Valley, which includes an outdoor swimming pool, tennis court and hot tub and an indoor swimming pool, sauna, gym and beauty salon (treatments must be paid for and booked direct with the salon). …Dining is a pleasure at the Kings Arms… Start the day of with a Full Cumbrian breakfast or perhaps something a bit lighter ahead of your day in the Lakes. Lunches and evening meals are just as important and our head chef has perfected favourite British dishes with a fantastic menu featuring delicious homemade bistro pub food which are served in the Courtyard Restaurant. For something a little different, LB’s Pizza House sits next door and specialises in homemade stone baked pizzas, hearty pasta and delicious desserts. Outdoor dining is possible in the summer months too in the Kings Arms Courtyard. An open fire features in the Lounge Bar, which serves light meals, snacks and real local ales throughout the day. Take your pick from over 40 whisky’s in the bar and an array of local ales on tap and sit back, relax and chat with friends or locals about your next day in the Lakes. …Location, Location, Location… Located on Keswick’s main street, the Kings Arms Hotel is less than 10 minutes’ walk from the shores of Derwentwater, and offers easy access to the rest of the Lake District. Step out of the doors and the famous Moot Hall is on your right along with many of the lovely boutiques offering a variety of shopping opportunities. A short drive takes you to Whinlatter where you will find endless walking and the popular Go Ape adventure. A 20-minute drive will get you to Grasmere, Cockermouth, Thirlmere or Ullswater.

Lovely pub, friendly staff but beware nightclub entrance/exit inside courtyard!

Husband and I were having a romantic stay just the two of us for two nights.

On arrival we were informed there was a pizzeria in the courtyard that our room overlooked, should we like to visit. Tthe room itself was small but pleasant and clean, nice toiletries and earplugs?. in the bathroom. We went out for dinner and drinks and on getting back could hear and see lights flashing and people enjoying themselves in the courtyard-nothing bad there we thought, as we knew the pizzeria was there. We were in the town centre too therefore I expected pub noise, people, taxi noise etc...until the noise and lights went on until 3.30am. We were wide awake and looked to see on the internet what nightclubs were in the area-lo and behold,listed separately on a different website (NOT on the Kings Arms Hotel site or I certainly would NOT have booked!) was The Loft nightclub which came under the Kings Arms courtyard address and which we were looking at it's doorway from our bedroom window. We also found a review stating a similar complaint about the noise, earplugs which should have been a dead giveaway (they weren't aware of a club either)and our room n.o. 7 in particular. (wish I had seen it earlier)After an hour's sleep through the night, the next morning I complained to a very apologetic receptionist, who contacted the manager and requested a refund for my second night's stay as the thought of another night of racket was unbearable. I am pleased to say that the refund has been processed. If you want to sleep through the night DO NOT stay here. The Loft club needs to be added to the HOTEL website so people can make a more informed decision about their stay here. This is NOT regular main street Saturday night noise (as the receptionist said) I am not naive and unreasonable. This is a nightclub NOT listed on their website and RIGHT OUTSIDE your window and they need to make this clear at the outset.
