I found The Derwentwater Hotel to be a great disappointment as a Hotel in a lovely area like Keswick in The Lake District.
The whole Hotel resembled a very run down old peoples home with stained settees and chairs in the conservatory and very tired looking rooms. The staff where very conscientious and courtious but I did not expect to find a damp patch as big as a table top on the wall facing the bed and to be sleeping under an alcove with peeling wallpaper hanging off. I should have known better when the Hotel advertised "dogs welcome" . I was offered accomodation at The Derwentwater Hotel after enquiring about Keswick hotels with disabled facilities as I was taking my 98 year old mother who is wheelchair bound for an overnight stay to meet up with a relative who was staying in the area. There was a ramp in to and out of the conservatory and a lift but that is where the disabled facilities ended as I had to move two beds , two bedside lockers , two chairs and a sideboard in order to get the wheelchair lined up to the en-suite door which was too narrow to get the chair through and had a step. At this point my mum was in tears.
The hotel was 'tired' to put it politely.
The décor was scuffed in many places throughout the hotel, many of the chairs in the conservatory were stained, a good number of the double-glazed units had failed and the bathroom tiles had mould stained grout, a badly fitted shower screen and a leaking shower. At breakfast the sausages, bacon and hash browns were undercooked. We overheard people sending their undercooked food back on more than one occasion. The wifi connection was intermittent and on our last day, non-existent. The staff we dealt with were all extremely friendly, helpful and polite.
