A NEW hotel, the Inn on the Square, has opened in the centre of Keswick.

Formerly the Queen’s Hotel, the establishment has been completely renovated in recent months by Lake District Hotels Ltd., and now has Scandinavian-inspired decor, 34 bedrooms and a dedicated steakhouse called Brossen, which uses meat from farms in the area.

Daniella Hope, Inn on the Square marketing director, said: “We wanted the design of Inn on the Square to be completely different to anywhere else in the area. It is important that the hotel evokes a strong sense of place where our guests can unwind and soak up the atmosphere of the lakes with a modern twist.”

The new head chef, Kyle Bowman, has been sous chef at several award-winning restaurants in Cumbria.
