Lovely character full old Inn with beautiful scenery
This was a return visit for us and we ended up in the same room as the first time.
Our room was small but clean with the added bonus of a new mattress on the bed, something we mentioned on our original visit. The only issue we had was the tiny bathroom because the toilet was almost under the sink and you had to sit on it sideways. But this little gripe is outweighed by the Inn itself with roaring stove and lovely atmosphere. The staff are great and the food is very nice- with a fantastic choice at breakfast. The location is wonderful so remember to take your camera. Just 10 minutes up the road to Keswick which is worth a visit!
A pleasant surprise
A last minute booking so I thought I would have to settle for something less than I might have wanted.
On the contrary, I had a pleasant overnight stay. Good food added to the experience. We had a power cut meaning no heating or hot food in the morning. The staff produced a lovely cold buffet so I didn't feel I missed out.
Lovely friendly inn
We stayed over night and had a lovely meal in the bar
The King's Head Inn
As previously stated.
The bar area and lounge photos are what sold this place to us and is a good representation. The rooms featured however were clearly different from what the average customer gets. Ours was dated with damaged objects and a bathroom so small I almost had to stand in the shower for a wee. Chatting to other guests it seems this was the norm. We booked a double and received a twin and although pointed out to reception nothing was done about it. The poor chap running the reception was also in the bar and waiting on and seemed to flit forwards and backwards meaning we were waiting a while before check in. Not a big issue for us but I could see this being annoying for some. The breakfast was standard, I had eggs benedict and my partner eggs royal. It was good, I'm not sure a pot of hollandaise sauce out of the microwave is the way to go but still very edible. All in all a positive experience that could so easily have been an amazing one. But a relaxed evening by the fire, with the dog and some local ale made up for all the niggles.
Couple of days in the Lakes
Good position just outside Keswick and in fantastic landscape.
Great friendly service and excellent food.
We booked our one night stay last minute after a few nights camping and the weather drastically changing for the worse.
We checked in and the reception from the manager was wonderful. Full explanation of the accommodation and facilities and directions to the room were provided willingly. On arrival at the room it seemed very nice and had everything we required for one nights stay, despite being slightly on the small side. On closer inspection the room was clean and generally things were as expected, however there are finishng touches missing, I do however think this is reflected in the reasonable price. We had an issue with out shower tray not draining correctly, my husband repeated this to reception and it was quickly and efficiently dealt with by the manager which was much appreciated. I must add however that I did not sleep particularly well due to the left hand side of the double bed being slightly collapsed and sloping towards the floor. I reported this to the manager when we checked out and he did say he would look into it so hopefully this will be addressed for the future. Breakfast was delicious and plenty of choice. All in all, due to the low price we would return.
Room pleasant but looking a bit tired bathroom needs a bit of a make over lovely views a bit expensive for standard and it isn't disable friendly for guests as advertised.
Good location just outside keswick
Good location for walking.
Bus stop in front of hotel
The King's Head Inn
Very enjoyable stay.
The King's Head Inn
As long as you understand that this hotel is outside the town of Keswick and the hotel building is on its own , you are made to feel more than welcomed on arrival by the lovely receptionist .
A bus stop is situated right outside the hotel , which gives you the opportunity to visit Kendall and I suppose other areas , I saw two walkers get on the bus . The hotel has lovely features , breakfast was served by the lovely waitress and the scenery is beautiful . A good one night stay with my family member and dog !
