  • "The property is in a great location in the centre of Keswick and the parking spot included is a real advantage."

    The apartment is very clean and comfortable and has everything that you would need. The only issues are the hot water, which has very low pressure, so takes ages to fill a sink and the shower isn’t great. The other issue is the main bedroom being right near the co op supermarket, so it’s very noisy at about 6.30ish when they are getting deliveries, but I know there’s nothing that an done about that

    Thank you for your feedback. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Andra Ghyll. We will ask our Property Services Team to take a look at the issue with the hot water. We take all feedback on board. Thank you- The Lakelovers Owner Relations Team Property Owner

  • "It was a lovely apartment and close to everything and I would definitely stay there again,my only complaint is about the WiFi it had kids safe on it and we were unable to get to some sites,ie: bet365 my husband does like a bet at weekend and this was blocked and oddly enough it wouldn't let me look up menus in pubs very odd."

    But that is my only complaint.

    It is so convenient for shops and the town centre and an excellent base for exploring the Lakes. A parking space allocated is a bonus. The Keswick Convention is just up the road too. The apartment was very clean and welcoming with some lovely personal touches from the owner. It was comfortable and had everything we could possibly need to make our stay enjoyable.

  • "The apartment was in a great location, and was comfortable and well equipped."

    The dedicated parking space was a must. The area was quiet, apart from the trolleys being moved about at the supermarket next door, which made sure we never slept in! Only small niggles were the wardrobe in the bedroom (doors awkward to open) and a crack in the bedroom window, but would definitely stay here again.

  • "Andra Ghyll holiday Flat in Keswick is in a great location and as described on the website."

    ...it is literally minutes from pubs and restaurants on the main street. The addition of having a dedicated/private car parking space is a bonus in a very busy town frequented by a lot of holiday makers. All fixtures and fittings in the flat were in good shape and in general a very comfortable place to stay....felt very much like "Home from Home" . I would certainly come back to Keswick and hopefully also stay in Andra Ghyll apartment. Sykes Holiday Cottages, were very professional with good communication throughout right from booking the flat,right through to actual holiday break.

    The property is well situated for supermarkets, pubs, restaurants & the bus station is only 5 minutes away. The accommodation was spotless & every effort has been made to make you feel at home. The only criticism was the lack of basics i.e. bin liners, washing up liquid, toilet rolls & kitchen foil. We will most likely use this property or similar again.

  • "The property was ideal for access to the town and Pubs and good parking, good property if you like being in the town centre , it is very well equipped and clean."

    Minor downside was it is very dated and needs a little updating especially the pink low level toilet that needs flushing 2 or 3 times at least to clear it, also the lighting in the lounge needs another small lamp or a dimmer switch ,at the moment you have a 5 bulb ceiling fitting very bright or a single table lamp in one corner very dim. But don't let this put you off all in all a good property. Also I was impressed with the booking agent, I Email the agent on Sunday to say only 1 of the 4 bulbs in the kitchen ceiling light bar was working and the internet hub kept dropping out, both were fixed Monday morning.
