The food in the Cafe Bar was beautiful, we had an evening meal and a breakfast and we were impressed with both.
There was no heating in the room, we had to ask for the heating to be turned on, this was around 9.30pm therefore the room did not warm up before the heating went off for the night. The small electric heater provided in the room did not provide any additional heat. There is lots of noise from the Cafe Bar until around 12am and due to the fact that the windows are not double glazed, the noise from the street (a bin wagon) awoke us early morning.
Smart & unusual bar in the centre of Keswick. Accommodation small but cozy.
Only fault: big cobweb above bed
We have stayed there many times before and always had a lovely time. Staff are very nice.
Lack of information eg times of breakfast Room cold on arrival
The staff we very helpful from the phone calls we made to the individuals we met whilst on our weekend break. The bar was lively very friendly and it seemed to accommodate all age groups whilst we were on our break.
The website is a year out of date requires updating we thought there was to be live music on the Friday when we arrived only to find it was 14 November 2013. Slightly expansive but to be fare we used booking.com only to find we could of saved £40 had we contacted Café bar 26. As with a lot of accommodate in the lakes parking there is none on site.
Location was good, at the end of the main street
car parking charges as there is no car parking available at this property, only nearby public paying car park
The staff very nice and good breakfast. Clean bedding, towels and en suite. Did not get the bedroom requested, paid more for a smaller room and was told we should have booked direct.
Very poor shower and cold en suite. Hard bed. Very small bedroom. Stain on carpet and cobweb in corner of ceiling. Having to pay for parking.
We stayed last last and both times have freindly and warm. The food and wine is lovely rooms are comfortable when hou have been walking out in the fresh air and coming warmth
Room wine staff warmth which I look when we go away for a short break
Friendly staff clean easy going facilities.Brilliant central location Good choice of breakfast
Location and staff.
Additional charge for booking with your company.
The location was perfect. The staff were very friendly.
We arrived at 5pm on a cold autumn evening. When we were shown up to the room the window was open. The radiator in the room wouldn't come on so we had to use a small portable heater we found in the room. The room was small and the en suite tiny. The selection of non cooked food at breakfast was poor. Dirty laundry in baskets outside the rooms. Overall not value for money even for Keswick.
Staff were very friendly. Room was spacious given the cost. Breakfast was very tasty Tapas was very good
A lovely little room, nicely furnished and spotlessly clean. Good options for breakfast and well cooked. Overall good value for money.
The bed was a bit firm and the shower pressure was weak but wouldn't put me off staying again or recommending the place. No parking on site, but was directed to some free parking a short walk away.
Very good Wi-Fi access/coverage. Separate door to come in/out so didn't have to walk through the cafe/bar. Room nicely furnished, clean, with tea/coffee, kettle, hairdryer, fan, heater and decent tv. Nice breakfast. Great location in centre of town. Staff were nice.
Breakfast was too late and a bit restrictive. From 9 to 9.30 am. Being in the lake district we wanted to be out & about earlier so would have preferred breakfast at 8am. Parking nearby is paid, starts from 8am to 7pm. Nuisance to have to get out early to feed the machine. Mattress (double bed) was uncomfortable. Slept because we were tired, but didn't linger.
friendly staff and good breakfast. very good location. Clean Rooms
The staff were great, friendly and helpful. The room was really comfortable with a super shower. The breakfast was spot on. I had eggs florentine and my wife eggs royal. Perfect poached eggs! Paying was so easy. The bar was really nice. Good food and live music.
We were on a gentle walking holiday so it was ok to be going to bed late. But if I were on a big hiking trip I would not be able to stay here, here's why: The music didn't finish until 11pm, this is fine, we knew this was going to be the case. the staff then clear up the bar downstairs, this finished around midnight. totally understandable as that's what needs to happen. However, the room is right on top of it all. so you hear everything, even through ear plugs. then the breakfast isn't served until 9 am. I have been on walking holidays where I need to be away by 7:30am. so if this is you then don't stay here. for us, we knew the score and therefore were totally happy with the situation. there just might be more suitable places if you need to get out early.
Friendly staff, clean and comfortable. Entertainment was a bonus on a Thursday night.
The location was great. The room was comfortable, clean and well looked after. There was music playing downstairs till 11 p.m. on the Wednesday that we stayed, but it shut down right on time and after that it was very quiet. I had a wonderful sleep there.
Of the 5 places we stayed that week, it was excellent value for money. Clean, comfortable, good location & lovely staff.
Nothing not to like.
Upon arrival staff were very helpful and welcoming and gave a full explanation of where everything was and what/where facilities were for us. Breakfast service, menu and food was excellent and the location cannot be beaten.
Although this isn't strictly a dislike, you must realise that there will be some noise in the evenings as you are staying above a popular bar and bistro. Therefore noise late into the evening should be expected (11pm). The staff did explain to us that the bar also had open mic nights during the week for local musicians. So be aware of this before booking, it did not spoil our stay but others might not be as understanding.
The room was very pleasant, clean and comfortable. A good location. Staff were friendly and helpful.
Welcoming, comfortable and friendly. Very helpful in giving information about locality.
