Lairbeck Hotel is ideally situated in a quiet, secluded location only 10-minutes walk into Keswick. Set in an acre of attractive, well-maintained gardens, with spacious on site parking, Lairbeck has magnificent views of Skiddaw, Causey Pike and many other mountains overlooking Derwentwater and the Borrowdale Valley.
The atmosphere here is both welcoming and informal and we assure you of the high standards of quality and hospitality that you will experience throughout your stay.
As soon as you enter the main hall you can sense the relaxed, family atmosphere of one of Keswick's finest Victorian country houses. In recent years, many features of the original house have been lovingly restored, such as the magnificent barley-twist pine staircase and galleried landing, which give the hall its prestigious feel and warmth. On the landing is a collection of photographs donated by the Anderson family (original owners of Lairbeck from 1875) evoking memories of Lairbeck as it was in years gone by.
In the comfort of the lounge bar, you can reflect upon the events of the day, make plans for tomorrow or simply relax and absorb the quiet atmosphere of the house. An unusual feature of the lounge is the window over a marble fireplace. On cooler evenings, the glowing log fire adds comforting warmth.
Hospitality, comfort and relaxation are all vital ingredients of the Lairbeck experience. Many of our guests return time-and-time again, knowing that the genuinely warm welcome they receive continues throughout their stay.
Lairbeck has 14 bedrooms including very large deluxe rooms, standard and larger double rooms, a 4-poster room and single rooms. There is a larger double/twin room and a single room on the ground floor.
Most rooms have superb mountain views and or overlook the hotel grounds. All are non-smoking, with either a bathroom or shower room en suite, and have been individually decorated to enhance their charm and character.
In keeping with Lairbeck's origins, each room has kept the name given to it by the Anderson family.

    “ok would find better for less money”

    Bathroom very basic although does the job. Breakfast a little stingy. Very limited views for the size of the bedroom.
