The hospitality started a day before we even arrived with a concerned and helpful phone call as snow was forecast for our travelling to the lakes, Private secure parking off road, a warm welcome room with a view of the mountain, great breakfast, lovely room, walks straight from the house, we barely used our car in the 4 nights we...

We visited Laurel Bank on the 6th of January, i can safely say this place ticks all the boxes. Lovely and clean rooms. Really good value for Money. One mile to the town centre. Breakfast was delicious. Sue and Gary pulled out all the stops for our stay, made us feel very welcome. We will definitely be returning soon.

Sue & Gary made us very welcome and were perfect hosts. The guest house was lovely & warm despite the freezing temperatures outside. The parking spaces are a great bonus as parking in the town centre can be difficult. There was a lovely selection of food for breakfast which was very tasty. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Sue and Garry were great hosts, made us feel very welcome and Garry even carried our bags up 4 flights of stairs...good Man. We took our two big Golden Retrievers and they were made most welcome and Garry even pointed out places for us to take them for toilet brakes and easy access to walk them. The breakfast was lovely,...

We really enjoyed our stay here and will definately return. As a B&B it has everything you want..friendly and knowledgeable hosts, spotlessly clean rooms (including the en suites.. ours was brand new and sparkling) and a host of little touches like good quality shower gel, fresh milk in your room etc. Also private parking and dog friendly too!

Really enjoyed our 2-night stay between Christmas and New Year - with our teenagers sleeping separately in the 3-bedded room - in this comfortable, warm but above all friendly B & B. On-site parking, en-suite rooms, nice breakfast, lots of little extras, but the hosts were the best bit: so friendly, welcoming, good local knowledge, nothing too much trouble. Would...

We would highly recommend Laurel Bank; it is situated conveniently as a base to explore Keswick and for walking. Castlerigg stone circle is close by. The room had a great view of the fells. The owners are very friendly and have a lot of local knowledge. A nice surprise was a complementary box of beautifully wrapped chocolates. The room had...

Stayed here for 3 nights over new year. Room was great, very clean and place is well kept. Owners are very friendly and attentive. Proximity to Keswick town centre is good with only a short walk to the centre. Would recommend.
