The Kings Arms Hotel Outside

In the heart of the Lake District, Keswick is a popular choice for visitors to base themselves when visiting this much loved national park. The town centre is a lively place, packed with shops, restaurants, and a busy market. Right in the centre of Keswick’s bustling high street you will find the Kings Arms Hotel. This popular inn is known for providing guests with a warm welcome, comfortable accommodation, and great food.

The hotel is ideal for guests wanting to explore the Lake District, but still be close to the shops and public transport links. Derwent Water is around a 10 to 15 minutes’ walk from the Kings Arms Inn, and from here, you can hop on board a steamer that will take you around the lake to some popular walking areas, including Borrowdale and Cat Bells, as well as the delightful Lingholm Kitchen and Walled Garden.

The Kings Arms Hotel is over 300 years old and packed with period features. As a result, you won’t find bland rooms that all look the same here. Instead, each one of the 13 rooms has been individually designed in a modern but elegant style that enhances some of the period features found in some of the rooms, such as fireplaces, exposed beams, and sash windows. All rooms contain a double or twin bed with one room containing a four-poster double bed.

Rooms have en-suite bathrooms with showers and complimentary luxury Gilchrest & Soames toiletries. In addition, rooms include flat screen televisions and a hospitality tray that includes biscuits. It is worth noting that the noise from the pub and surrounding establishments can be disruptive, and in recognition of this, the hotel also provides guests with complimentary ear plugs.
