  • "Thanks so much for a lovely stay."

    We loved the comfy living room: when the weather was horrid, we could look at the lovely view from the windows. There was only one issue, which we knew about from other reviews, which was the noise from the local tapas bar. It did stop at midnight, so if you are pre-warned, it isn't a problem. Lovely and central, and perfect for a family get together.

  • "Fantastic location can’t fault that however need new mattresses on all beds."

    The springs on the two single beds especially protruding through so turned them over. Bathroom showers are useless and main bathroom needs updating. Mould all round the bath and shower screen. Skirting boards were filthy everywhere. It’s a good size apartment though could do with updating and maybe convert the kitchen and dinning room into one big kitchen to make it more sociable for guests.

    Thank you for your feedback. As we were not made aware of the issues you encountered during your stay, we were unable to rectify these for you. The property is listed as having separate dining and kitchen areas and we do advise guests to enquire whether a property is suitable to their needs prior to booking. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay in the area. Lakelovers Owner Relations Team Property Owner

  • "Great location would stay again."

    Super views. Lots of space. Extremely convenient to all the great things about Keswick... views, walks, pubs, bus, grocery, coffee. The actual views are so much better than the pictures. Appliances, carpet, furniture worn and needs to be replaced. Beds/mattresses are small and only marginally comfortable. Need changing. Fun quirkiness of an historic building... and also floorboards have areas with very loud creaks we felt bad for guests below. Doors oddly placed. 1/2 bath but no shower/tub upstairs. Also, the Tapas bar below rock and rolls until 12:30AM Thurs, Fri, Sat and it is like it is in your living room. The elevator does not go all the way up to this floor. If you can live with all that it is wonderful!

  • "First time I’ve stayed in a holiday apartment and there has not been a welcome pack."

    The location was noisier that expected as there was a Tapas bar right outside the living room window. If you want to be right in the centre of things then this would be an idea place for you. The cleaner or previous people had left a full vacuum cleaner in the cupboard which I would have expected to be emptied if the cleaner had done a proper job. The instructions to the car park need to be updated as there is no Thomason butchers, it if stated that it was behind Greggs then its easy to find.

  • "Large apartment with comfy beds and sofas, quality furnishings, a basic but adequate kitchen."

    Two bathrooms and three toilets made it perfect for four adults, no queues or time schedules. Absolute BEST part ... the fantastic views! We were so mesmerised by the ever-changing light and cloud on the fells, it was hard to tear ourselves away. Being in the centre of picturesque Keswick made shopping and eating out easy and fun, and just a stroll to two fabulous parks and lake Derwentwater. Will book longer next time.

  • "Apartment had everything we needed for adults, infant and dogs."

    Visited Keswick on numerous occasions but mainly for short stay breaks in hotels. This was the first time that we have done self-catering. Loved the central location, one car parking space an additional benefit. Would definitely look to book again. Thanks, we all had a lovely holiday.

    Thank you. Looking forward to welcoming you back soon Property Owner
