Dolly Wagon was very clean and very comfortable. The owners were really friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. Will definitely go back sometime. It is only a short walk into Keswick and lots of lovely pubs for a great night out.
Friendly helpful fab breakfast spotlessly clean Nice option of packed lunch if required Looking forward to our return
Parking difficulties but managed
The room was a brilliant size with an en suite bathroom, kettle, tea, coffee and fresh cakes every day. The room was always clean and the food at breakfast was amazing with a large variety that you could change to your needs as well as a new special every day. Amanda was the perfect host and no request was too much for her. She was very knowledgable with regards to the local area and always seemed to be around to help. A definite 10 out of 10
Warm welcome,so different than a large hotel. Local knowledge able to recommend walks pubs were to eat etc
CANT think of anything
Comfortable clean room and facilities ,, superb breakfast and extremely friendly hospitality.
Room was large and breakfast choice was brill...asked about walks and she had a vast knowledge of the area
Very friendly and relaxed. . Lovely rooms, gorgeous organic soaps and shower gels. Fab breakfast
all the above mention
A very warm welcoming guest house and hosts! Amanda and Ross are lovely people who make you feel at ease and comfortable in their guest house. Superb tasty home made cake left in the room each day, went down great with the tea and coffee left for us!
The location was excellent as was the breakfast, cleanliness, comfort and friendliness and helpfulness of the owner, Amanda.
We liked everything about the Dolly Wagon Guest House.
I stayed with my boyfriend for an entire week. Breakfast was always delicious, room turned down every day. Hosts Amanda, Ross and family always greet with a smile and happy to help. Whenever we left the house, we were given a million and one things to do wherever we went. Room had lovely view of peaks.
Amanda and her husband were fantastic hosts, the little extras like home made cakes in the room were lovely. The room was spotless, breakfast, especially the special which Amanda created especially for us was gorgeous. I noticed that local produce was used, all the ingredients were fresh and of a high quality. We would definitely stop there again and would recommend it to anyone - thank you for making our stay special
Very friendly welcome, lovely home made cakes, stunning view from window, excellent breakfast. Accommodated our bikes.
Everything was fine, even found parking space readily, despite the lack of a reserved space.
Very friendly owners
Lovely breakfast. Quite location even though close to centre of Keswick
Amanda and her husband were very welcoming and friendly! The breakfast choices were great and room was lovely! The added extra of the cakes with a welcome cup of tea was a lovely touch!
Nothing our stay was great!
Very helpful friendly hosts, big comfy rooms, delicious breakfasts & cake.
Bathroom could be better - shower luke warm & not particularly strong stream.
We stayed over the Easter bank holiday 2014 Saturday and Sunday nights . Amanda is great host and I was welcomed wholeheartedly, great customer services, greeted with a welcome cup of tea with biscuits in the room...then discussed what to see and do in keswick, although she posted some leaflets and contacted me through email for my arrival times and any preference for breakfast but we still discussed it. I was allowed to use microwave for warming some food for dinner. Great and delicious breakfast in the morning, clean and tidy room, toiletries provided as well with excellent basic tea making, heating, tv facilities. Overall a very good experience, definitely will go back again, even asked Amanda to pay us a visit when she is coming to Cheshire.
I think it is very easy to be critical for anything but I can score 10/10 for overall experience.
Extremely friendly staff. Contacted us before arrival to make sure everything was ok. Would definitely stay again and would also recommend others to stay.
The friendly, helpful and kind service and attention to detail are the main characteristic. We loved the home made cakes to have with a cup of tea in our room and breakfast was superb. Lots of helpful advice about our stay was provided.
We are not frequent users of Guest Houses, preferring hotels. But as the advert goes, If 'Carlsberg made XXXXX.' Well in this case, if they made Guest Houses they would base them on the Dolly Waggon Guest House in Keswick Cumbria. The owners Amanda and Ross McDonald could not have been more helpful or caring. A pleasant room with en-suite and a breakfast that could match anything a top hotel could provide, I will attach a few photos regarding this aspect of the service. A strange name Dolly Waggon but it is the name of one of the hills in the area. Parking could at times be difficult but we had no trouble finding at least four suitable gaps in the parked cars in the road.
Not a lot of parking space.
Friendly and helpful hosts, lovely view of Skiddaw from our room. Freshly baked buns in the room on arrival. Comfortable bed, would recommend.
