  • "A very nice property, well maintained and well presented."

    We enjoyed its central location, comfortable beds, designer kitchenware, and a quiet washing machine. There was some noise from the George hotel kitchen extractor pipes located just outside the property windows. There was also some minor disturbance caused by ongoing maintenance/building work next door, but obviously this is not the owner's fault.

  • "A very nice and comfortable flat in the middle of town with the added bonus of a private parking space."

    The only problem we encountered was the hot water. The boiler seems to be set to provide hot water in the morning only. Post-hike showers and baths in the evening were rather cold. This might not be a problem in summer. Otherwise a very pleasant stay.

  • "The flat was really clean, spacious and in a good location with excellent security and a free car parking space."

    However it was really noisy and there was a huge 'hole' in the wooden frame above the window in the master bedroom which made it more noise and 'drafty' - especially in January. There was also a huge vent pipe outside the double bedroom from the restaurant that was noisy too! A little disappointed especially the cost of the property - maybe should inform customers of the noise levels.

    Location super, furniture and fittings of very good quality, very good lighting throughout, ( unusually in most lets and we stay in 4/5 a year)for anyone on a walking hol in this area ideal. Would recommend this let. Secure parking, ( tho next to commercial bins) this was not a problem.and entrance to property secure, ( 3 locked doors! ) Although on the second floor there are only two small flights of stairs, all in all an excellent property!

  • "The apartment is ideally situated, well equipped, clean & tidy."

    On departure we reported concerns with the plumbing as the toilet was very noisy, the bath taps tight and the shower rail a bit wobbly! We only got one set of keys (although when I asked on checking out, there was another set) which was a safety issue due to locks/access to the building. Not the prettiest entrance to a property (I wouldn't like to have been on my own on dark nights) and as long as you don't want a lie in (refuse trucks empty bins daily) it was a great apartment right in the centre of Keswick.

  • "The accommodation was in a fantastic place for restaurants, shops and the surrounding attractions."

    There is a cafe/pub opposite that was open til late and most nights people were very noisy and disturbed our sleep or relax time. The windows even closed did not keep the noise out. Maybe the windows need to be changed to eliminate any outside noises. The beds mattress and pillows were not what we are used to, my opinion is to have a firm mattress and pillows or a choice of soft or firm pillows.
