Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A gem of a place. Fantastic guest house, excellent decor & spotlessly clean with a very comfortable large bed. A delicious breakfast served with local produce. Ben & Fi are great hosts, lovely & welcoming. They are both extremely knowledgable of the area & local walks. The guest house is quiet & peaceful with lovely views & only a short walk into Keswick. Can’t wait to return, thanks so much for our stay.

Welcome & Hospitality - I had a really welcoming and friendly stay at the Glencoe Guest House in Keswick. The hosts were really flexible with me because of being in meetings until late in the evening, I was able to arrive early, pick up a key, and return later to the property. They also upgraded my room because of space available at the time (I visited midweek in the offseason). Room - clean, comfortable, warm, plenty of clothe storage, and it had a really good ensuite facility. Very comfortable bed too. Breakfast - was delicious and generous, and I was given a really good choice of options. Location - right in Keswick town, just a couple of minutes walk from shops, the park, and not far from the Lake either. I really appreciate my stay, and would certainly consider staying again next time. Thank you

We are so pleased to hear that you found our Guest House to be clean and tidy. We do try very hard to maintain very high standards and are always thrilled when this is recognised.

Returned here having stayed last year for our annual lads walking holiday. Great, welcoming hosts and fantastic situation, 2 minutes walk to the square in Keswick. Hot showers appreciated after a day walking and tasty ‘hikers’ breakfast made with quality produce goes down a treat. Host is very knowledgeable of the area and readily offers advice about the best walks. Highly recommended.

The perfect base to explore Keswick and the surrounding area. Less than a 5 minute walk to Keswick high street with lots of pubs and restaurants nearby. Ben and Fiona were great hosts and had lots of really good recommendations for walks and attractions nearby. Parking on the street was very easy - we went out in our car during the day and had no trouble finding spaces when we returned. Would recommend Glencoe to anyone wanting to explore Keswick or the north Lake District!

My wife and I spent a weekend here in December, as always Ben and Fiona were the perfect hosts, the room was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The breakfast was the perfect way to set us up for the day, with great choice of hot & cold food. The guest house is only a 5 minute walk to the centre of Keswick and a great place to visit at this time of the year. Wouldn't hesitate in recommending Glencoe guest house.
