Luckily we never stayed at the hotel, but on sending an email asking a few questions, we were told that "we are not able to accept bookings including children in the party" so i replied saying "so your not family friendly?" i had no reply. I've looked on their website and i can't find anything that says "no children" only...

My wife and I spent the first part of our honeymoon at the Lairbeck Hotel. Upon arrival, we were greeted by one of the friendly managers. Unlike a typical modern hotel, Lairbeck does not have a 'front desk'. Instead, all business transactions happen at the bar which is kind of cute. Our room (also known as the Servant's Quarters) was...

We stayed here two nights. Its a nice old house, and whilst modernisation might address some niggles (eg no shower), it would also ruin the places period charm. Some other factors - the key system, the bar with no till - are a bit old fashioned. But there's nothing wrong with a bit of quirkiness. I would however suggest more...

Had a long weekend break in Keswick and read the reviews about the Lairbeck and they were spot on with the hotel being in a great location. Short walk to town and ideal place for exploring the lake district. The staff are friendly and the room very comfortable room and a lovely breakfast. Will definitely stay here again.

Hotel was located very near town, just a short walk! Very comfortable, warm, lovely breakfast. Could do with a little updating. The owners were very helpful. We would go back to stay again. Maybe next year it will have been updated. But I must say it was very clean!

The hotel is clean and comfortable in a gorgeous old historic Cumbrian building. We had a very comfortable bed and the breakfast was excellent. The welcome was warm and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The location is fantastic, being a short walk from Keswick but in a quiet and peaceful spot. Walks and hills are easily accessible and...

It's in an excellent location, only 10/15 min walk into town. Lovely old victorian building with great views of Skiddaw. Room was quiet, clean, and comfortable. Hosts were friendly and very helpful. Breakfast's included in the price, there was a good selection, and the full English breakfast wasn't greasy. Basically, I'll gladly stay there again!

Great location about 10 minutes walk from town centre. Cooks Room at very top of hotel comfortable and surprising spacious. Bathroom quite nice and very clean but bath only. Beautiful peaceful garden outlook. Host very welcoming and breakfast was excellent. Very quiet. Would definitely recommend.

I have recently returned from a weekend trip to the Lairbeck hotel and I can not recommend it enough! The location is ideal for any lake goer in that it's in such a tranquil location but is also only a 10 minute walk from the town centre. The rooms, owners, and breakfast were all fantastic and made myself and my...
