  • "Great property in a great location with car parking…perfect!"

    A few minor improvements: - welcome basket would have been nice..often the norm. - very strong bleach smell on arrival. Had to open all windows for a few hour…I guess that it proved that it was well cleaned! - bath is very high, even with the small step. My parent would have really struggle to get in. Bigger step with a handle would be needed for older people

    Hi David, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review of Keswick Loft. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. As you suggested, we have now provided a higher step to enable easier access to the bath and also to the higher kitchen shelves. Many thanks Andy & Carol Gilroy (Owners) Property Owner

  • "This was the second time we had rented Keswick Loft, and as far as we are concerned there is nothing that could be improved."

    The only downside was the huge number of people in this area of Cumbria, presumably because of the curtailment of foreign travel.

  • "A really well positioned apartment, with everything we 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. Many thanks Andy and Carol Gilroy (Owners) Property Owner

  • "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.

    Would recommend without hesitation.

  • "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.

    Complete with a car space (which are at a premium) Large apartment, comfy beds nice and warm. Super clean you would never know animals were allowed. On a windy night the bathroom windows did rattle a bit, but soon fixed with a couple of wedges

    There wasn't anything we could fault in the whole experience. From picking the keys up to dropping them back off (within about 100m from the property) we enjoyed every second. Thank you for providing absolutely everything we could have needed. We will see you again soon

  • "The location is absolutely on point."

    Parking was also good. Being able to step outside straight in the bustle of Keswick was excellent. We had an excellent holiday. The loft was exactly what was advertised. The bed was clean and very comfortable, kitchen was also very well equipped. We would definitely recommend and use Keswick loft again

  • "Great location and excellent facilities, it has everything you need and the big bath was nice for a relaxing soak after a long day."

    .. and the ladies in the office were very helpfulm too. Work needs to be done on the entrances both front and back , but you/they already know about that. 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.

  • "The instructions to find the place to pick up the keys could be more explicit as I first went to another place called lake something - half way down a road you don’t know is not enough!"

    In addition the first night we parked in someone’s parking space because the parking space we should have parked in was hidden by bins - could the spaces be numbered to help prevent this in future ?

  • "We had a super time, and the apartment was a great space for us to live in."

    We stayed in this apartment last year and my daughters couldn’t wait to use the ‘BIG bath’ again! The only room for improvement, a better vegetable peeler, scales that work, and skirting board outside bathroom to be fixed but that’s just me be really picky!

    The flat is in a great location and is so handy for the local amenities. Although the flat does not have a garden it is between two fantastic parks that are only a 5 minute walk away. We really enjoyed our stay.

    It was clean, modern, stylish, and well appointed. It had a number of special touches that really made it stand out. We are hoping to return and rent the same apartment.

  • "The property is located adjacent to / upstairs from a busy hotel and an Indian restaurant."

    There were extractor fans running from 7am until midnight. We found the noise very intrusive, and were not able to open windows because of both the noise and the kitchen smells. We appreciate that others may not consider this to be a problem, but, for us, it did take away some of the enjoyment of a lovely and comfortable property. We certainly would not return to this particular property.

  • "We had a great break in the loft."

    It was really windy on the Saturday night and there seems to be something in the loft or roof that bangs that did keep us awake...... apart from that we loved it. The reviews said it was cold and that the heating didn't work, we did not find this to be true. We had no problem at all. The entrance in to the loft wasn't as bad as the reviews said, it's an old building and is what it is!!!! No problem there either! It's location is fabulous and with parking too what more could you want. We will return if the price is right. Natalie

  • "This apartment was fantastically located, lovely and spacious, and offered great facilities."

    The only niggle was that it could have done with a little more attention spent to the overall clean...for example, the skirting boards were very dusty, a few stains on the bedroom carpets, the silicone in the bathroom! The entrances are not very pleasant either and really need some attention giving to them especially as they are then topped off with a strange smell. We did see a note though saying the entrances were being renovated some hopefully this is true. However, the apartment suited us perfectly in terms of what we were looking for, the beds were super comfy and the overall comfort of this apartment was great. We would certainly book it again. It could be ‘almost’ perfect if the owners addressed the above.
