Rooms were great, food excellent and our hosts superb. Dorchester House is well located in Keswick and perfect for walking with Latrigg and Skiddaw on the doorstep and the launch and buses for travel around the North Lakes. We've stayed here many times and I'm sure we will be back again another time.

5 star services. Clean rooms. Great breakfast. What more can you say. Location is prefect for the town centre. Only down side is you may have problem parking your car on the side streets as it is very busy. But that's to be expected.

We stayed here for 2 nights and were all truly gutted to leave! Anne and Dennis welcomed us into their B&B with a real personal touch. Our request for a large bed for my 6"6 partner was fulfilled without any problems and we were delighted with our room. It was very clean, had delicious biscuits on the tea tray and...

Our party of 4 chose this accommodation randomly from a selection on line, staying for 2 days. It is just a 2 minute walk into the beautiful town of Keswick. Our hosts, Dennis and Anne, were very warm and welcoming, finding the time to talk to their guests and making a point of using our names. Our rooms were clean...

The room was beautiful. It was so close to town, within walking distance. The hosts were helpful friendly and accommodating. The host even cooked my egg the way I liked (over well done). An excellent stay.

Our hosts Ann and Dennis were absolutely wonderful, kind and helpful. The breakfast was one of the best we've ever had. The room we stayed in was the family room at the front which was large, bright and airy. The sheets smelt of lovely washing powder and softner. The shower was powerful with lovely scented, locally sourced shower gels and...

Dennis & Anne are hosts par excellence. Everything about our 4 day vacation was perfect. The house is beautiful. There are tastefully chosen photographs & paintings in the bedroom, locally produced soaps in the bathroom, very comfortable beds with knitted blankets. The breakfast in the morning is sumptuous & delicious. Dennis does the cooking while Anne sees to it that...
