Overview

The Castle Inn Hotel, Keswick, By BW Signature Collection is a former coaching inn near the small village of Bassenthwaite in Cumbria. It is in the north of the Lake District National Park -- designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2017 -- and has views of Bassenthwaite Lake and Skiddaw mountain.

Keswick, a town "encircled by cloud-capped fells and nestled alongside the idyllic, island-studded lake of Derwentwater" (Lonely Planet), is less than 10 minutes' drive from the hotel. Wordsworth House and Garden, the childhood home of William Wordsworth in the market town of Cockermouth, is also less than 10 minutes' drive away.

"With vast stretches of open water, forests and lush green scenery, the Lake District is one of Britain's favourite tourist spots," says the Daily MailCheck out our list of 101 Things to do in the Lake District for further inspiration.

Leisure facilities include a heated indoor pool, a fitness room, a sauna and a games room with Wii Sports and table tennis. There is also a 9-hole putting green, a croquet lawn and a grass tennis court (weather permitting; supplements apply).

The hotel has two restaurants: the fine-dining Ritsons Restaurant and the cosy Tavern Bar, which serves pub classics and Cumbrian real ales. You can also have drinks in the garden in fine weather.

Let down hugely by the catering. The breakfast was fine but the dinner offering has considerable room for improvement.

The hotel was clean and easy to get to, much larger than expected. The food was wonderful and even though there were a few problems in the restaurant on the first evening the staff went out of their way to ease a difficult situation.

We had a fantastic 3 course meal in the Castle Tavern. Staff were great. Twin room very comfortable. The deal we got through Travel Zoo made our stay very very enjoyable.
Other Comments
The hotel is approx 6-7 miles drive from Keswick town centre. Beautiful scenery for walking. Large car park. We did not have any fridge in the room or air conditioning A fan was provided. This was not a problem for us in this visit. Hotel was very quiet and lovely gardens to chill out in. Thanks to all the staff,reception, bar and housekeeping for your kindness during our visit.

The room comfy/clean and grounds lovely
Other Comments
The room was comfy and clean and the grounds lovely.The food was poor to/very average.There was no organisation in the dining room some diners being left for a good hour before being served ordered food. We kept having to prompt staff so we weren't also left . At breakfast I asked for a vegan breakfast and was served mushrooms, tomatoes ,vegan sausage and a fried egg.No hash brown or beans ?.The dairy free spread was a concoction put together by the staff ,I have a photo of congealed fat of some description with dairy free milk poured into it. Surely due to the high profile deaths from allergic reactions in the press lately , food allergens should be a health & safety issue.

Food was excellent but not fully aware of gluten free foods and cross contamination.

The hotel is in need of repair and decoration. It is very tired in appearance and is in need of redecoration and new upholstery and furniture.

The prices in the bar were average, the reception staff member 3pm on Friday 10th was very professional and friendly. The grounds were perfectly kept and tidy. The views were amazing.
Other Comments
Rooms were dated not as shown on travel zoo, the pictures of the food on travel zoo showed to be fine dining not pub grub. The bed creaked at slightest movement and hotel was further out than expected.
