The Derwentwater Hotel, Keswick
Fine stay for one night
Apartment was spacious, but could really use some updates, especially the bathroom. Great area and ground around hotel were lovely.

Been staying here for over 15 years and will always go here! Good to see money being put into the hotel at last to update it but still the bathrooms are in need of work as it lets the hotel down! We will be returning with my family in the summer to the apartments as they are in first class condition the ones that have been renovated.

I wouldn't recommend during hot days.
Where do I start? Due to the hotel policy I couldn't receive the keys from the ready room before 3 o'clock. The room was hot due to the old building with not air condition, the sun shining straight through the window which was sealed and can't be opened and only small top part was functional. There was a hole in the ceiling and spider webs around the room with occasional spider hiding. The complete lack of the water pressure and the fact that I have to "kneel" to see myself in the mirror didn't make my evening. The mattresses have the best time long gone. The breakfast was good, however the queue and waiting time for whatever I need was caused due to lack of the serving staff. I actually felt sorry for those two guys who tried to do as much as possible for all the guests. The lobby was inviting and sofas are comfortable to sit on and and I actually stayed there until 10 p.m. to wait for the room to cool down. Assuming from the so many people fill up the lobby I wasn't the only one. Garden is very nice and clean with amazing views.
