8/10 Very good

The location is good for keswick, i get why people say its faulty towers ,its being left to ruin or been patch up roughly in places.could be a really nice hotel. Dont expect free parking again i understand why with being near to keswick but if paid for a room it should be over ruled and could put people off staying .

Worth a visit
Happy with stay overall. Could do with a bit of maintenence but it is an old building and for price couldnt complain. Reception staff very pleasant however certain bar staff could do with a smile on their face, it makes all the difference. We would definately use this hotel again as its in an excellent location for keswick.
