  • "Shower curtain soiled."

    Please replace or wash. Rugs in bedrooms not nice or clean given pets use the property. We moved these. Dishwasher tablets and washing up liquid was helpful. Handsoap for the bathroom would have been a nice addition. A welcome pack of teabags and coffee would have been kind for guests Flat location was great for visiting Keswick. Curtains did not block out light and little sound insulation from street noise so disturbed sleep from local businesses. Can imagine in summer this would be more of an issue. Quite expensive considering all above

    Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to read of the issues you found. Unfortunately, as we weren't aware of this during your stay we were unable to attend and resolve them for you. It is possible you may have missed this but there are blackout blinds on the curtains. As the property is in the town centre, while the location is great, this does mean that sometimes noise levels are sometimes increased. As this is a self catering accommodation we do not provide a welcome pack or cleaning products as standard, though guests do sometimes leave them behind. We are glad that you found the location great for visiting Keswick. Lakelovers Owner Team Property Owner

    Thank you for you review following your stay at Keswick Loft, we have taken this opportunity to check both the sink and bath plugs and also the electric shaver point we have NOT found any fault and all are in full working order we have therefore concluded that there is actually no fault and this is down to user error.

  • "When we arrived we were unable to get our car(Vauxhall Corsa) over the bollard."

    It was caught on the underside. Therefore we were told to find street parking. We are 89 and 84 and found this very difficult having to search for a parking place. Not at all what we wanted. We couldn’t understand why we weren’t offered another space with different bollard. On our departure it was particularly difficult having to walk a long distance to get car then nowhere to put car when we were going up and down fire escape stairs. Then having to carry all our things right across car park.we had planned to pop things in the car the day before each time we went out.

    Thank you very much for your comments and for taking the time to let us know your thoughts. Customer feedback is very important to help us continually improve our standards. I can confirm that the management company did look into the bollard as it should not catch on cars and it measured at 11cm when in the downward position.The management company have now made adjustments to the bollard.We are sorry that this caused you inconvenience but are glad that our team was able to assist you on arrival.

  • "Brilliant location right in the centre of Keswick."

    Property had plenty of daytime living space. Although it had a limited number of windows and being in the middle of town you were still awarded with views towards Skiddaw to the north. Beds were comfortable although bedrooms were a little on the small side. Kitchen had everything you needed. The bathroom does need some attention as other reviewers have reported. Getting in and out of the bath for a shower could prove to be a bit risky due to the height of the bath. I think some fixed steps up to the bath and a handrail is needed. Toilet roll holder was loose. The electric kitchen bin was broken and didn't have any batteries in it. Fridge door hindge needs some attention due to grinding noise unless you lifted it as you closed it. A long handled sweeping brush would have been handy. The corridor leading out from the front door was filthy and had not been cleaned or swept. One of the PS4 controller docking stations was broken and the response from the remote control for the apps was a bit frustrating. The allocated car parking space wasn't obvious when we arrived. Needs a photo or better description on the property information. Extractor fans from the restaurant downstairs and the hotel next door were a bit noisy from in the bedrooms until about 11pm. Some banging noises were heard in the loft when it was windy for a couple of nights. Not sure of the two upside down electric sockets in one of the alcoves. Just having two three pin holes in the plaster whether this is okay or not. We would however, rent the place again purely on its location despite some little niggles as generally the property was ideal and served our needs for the week.

    Dear Paul Thank you for taking the time to leave a review for us. We are very glad that you liked the property and its location in the centre of town! Since your review, and others, we are putting a grab rail and some bath steps into the bathroom to make it easier for guests to get in and out of the bath. The toilet roll holder has been secured again, and the broken bin has now been replaced with an under-sink one. We have also checked the PS4 controllers and they do seem to be working OK. The property also recently passed its electrical check so there are definitely no safety issues. We do intend to put up a sign for the parking space in the near future- thanks for pointing this issue out. Regarding the corridor, it is currently being redecorated and we apologise for any dirt or dust as a consequence of this. Since your visit we have been to the property ourselves and cleaned the corridor and stairs, and the building management company will ensure that regular corridor cleans take place going forward. With regard to any local noise- apologies for any disturbance, however you'll appreciate of course that the property is in the town centre and the local businesses do stay open until around 11pm. Thanks again for your comprehensive feedback and we look forward to welcoming you back again in the future. Carol & Andy (owners of Keswick Loft) Property Owner

    Dear Garry Thank you for taking the time to send us your feedback. We do take this seriously. The bed linen and towels are of course freshly laundered for every new guest, and the property checked by Lakes Cottages prior to each changeover.

  • "I should write a poor review to discourage others from staying here :-) But I won't."

    The property is excellent. It is right in the centre of Keswick, 50 metres from the Moot Hall, and made the perfect base for a perfect week of cold, clear, still, winter weather. Long days on the hill. Great to return to such luxurious accomodation - the shower is amazing and it's worth taking the time to run a bath at least one evening. And then out to the surprisingly lively (for December) pubs and restaurants of the town on your doorstep. Thank you Andy & Caroline.

    Dear Tracey, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review for us, and we are glad that you appreciated the information and games, as well as the convenient location of Keswick Loft close to the town centre. We have discussed your comments with the agency who arrange the cleaning, and also booked a deep clean to ensure that the standard of cleanliness is as expected for our future guests. In addition, we will be scheduling a deep clean more frequently throughout the summer in future. Keswick Loft is a very popular property with a lot of bookings during the summer period, which means that sometimes a some extra cleaning is needed.

    Much bigger than the photos looked. Clean and well equipped. Marked down comfort due to beds being of average comfort and cheap duvets. Marked down facilities due to very high climb into fantastic bath/shower (could do with sturdier steps) and metal stairway to car park. Apartment totally pet friendly, but description needs to warn visitors of metal stairway that isn’t too great for dogs. Play station doubles as DVD player and is showing signs of age (controllers unresponsive and erratic)

    Hi Sharon, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review of Keswick Loft. We are sorry that you were not comfortable in the beds - we have tried to make them as comfortable as possible, with Egyptian cotton high-thread-count linen and memory foam mattress toppers, but understand these may not be to everyones liking. As you suggested, we have now provided high sturdy steps for easier access to the bath. Regarding the Playstation controllers, these do occasionally need to be charged, so this may be why you found them unresponsive. We have charged and checked them recently and they are working fine.

  • "Keswick Loft is in general a lovely spacious apartment in the very centre of town which makes it easily accessible to everything Keswick has to offer."

    The beds were the most comfortable I have slept in, and I have made a note of the make of them so that I can get one when my own needs replacing! However, the standard of cleanliness left a lot to be desired, the kitchen was quite grubby and the cupboard doors, though high gloss, we’re dull with grease. The grout in the tiles in the bathroom were so dirty with grime that I ended up buying a bottle of bleach and cleaning them myself. The communal area in the building was also dark and dirty, with threadbare carpet, which did not give a great first impression. Overall, we had a pleasant stay, but it could have been better.

  • "Keswick Loft was absolutely perfect."

    When we arrived the ladies in the Holiday Cottage shop where we collected the key couldn't have been more helpful. One even walked across the road and showed us where to park! Having an allocated parking space just at the foot of the stairs to the flat is worth a lot - so convenient - although parking in Keswick wouldn't be a problem anyway, judging by the car parks we saw! The flat is literally about 100 meters from the pedestrian area in the centre of Keswick, and one of the best features is the excellent Thai Restaurant only about 100 meters in the opposite direction. Living as we do in rural Norfolk it was a real treat to be so close to shops, coffee houses and restaurants - we had a lovely holiday and we'll definitely be back next year. John Fearnley.

Recommend adjusting the light sensor at the rear entrance as it only ever triggered when we were already trying to struggle opening the door and I could only trigger it by waving arms at it, as Im tall enough... Only other issue we had was that the power tripped off twice and needed resetting by clambering up on top of the fridge...and despite all the arguments you can smell curry.............. but I'd certainly recommend Keswick Loft to anybody wanting to stay in Keswick.
