    With a few large vehicles (4 x4 cars etc) parking was very hard

  • "This flat can be rather noisy especially when people are moving around in the other flats and also when there are deliveries to, and bottle collections from, The George Hotel."

    The radiator in the main bedroom didn't seem to turn off which made it too hot early in a morning. But we've just booked to return again in March which will be our 3rd visit, so the positives outweigh the negatives!

  • "My husband and I visited Siskin in 2019 and had a lovely stay."

    We were delighted to return December 2021 and had a wonderful week. The flat is cosy, well appointed and perfectly positioned in central Keswick, with parking as a bonus. The sitting room, beds and bedding were very comfy and just what we needed after days out. We hope to return next year.

    However, I am not going to use your company again because since booking it, I have had 39 yes 39 unsolicited emails. You really need to reconsider your customer comms

  • "The flat was even nicer than the photos!"

    It was very warm and cosy. spacious, well equipped and the décor was lovely as well as comfortable. We felt very at home. For us the parking space is a real bonus as is being right in the heart of Keswick. We would definitely return and recommend Siskin. The staff in the Lakes office were very helpful.

  • "The only negative was that the sound from the outside to the Main Bedroom was quite loud ."

    I didn't check if the room had double glazing but it didnt sound as if it had. Maybe an investment to consider .

  • "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.

  • "Please refer to the email I sent you regarding fire regulations."

    I do feel a sense of obligation to refer these concerns to a higher authority. Perhaps you can provide some reassurances and explanations that would make that unnecessary.

  • "Excellent location, very comfortable base, with loads of walks straight from the doorstep in beautiful scenery."

    It can be a little noisy at night from passing nighttime revellers but overall this did not detract too much from the holiday at all. We would return to this flat.

  • "One of the best rentals we have stayed in!"

    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.
