  • "Was very impressed by the property, the photos on the Web site do not do it justice."

    Property much better than we expected. Located in the centre of town was perfect for us, one group member not able to walk too far at the moment. Fridge door could do with a rethink but that's the only negative I could come up with. Hope to be able to visit there again in the future.

  • "The property was exactly as described and therefore we were not disappointed upon arrival."

    The key collection and car parking permit collection was quick and very easy. The use of a parking permit for the whole week was a welcome bonus, especially as it covered all of the main car parks in Keswick. We used the Central Car Park all week as it wears the closest to the apartment. The apartment was clean and comfortable. The location in the heart of the town enabled easy access to the amenities in Keswick, and a great base for exploring the local fells on foot. We had a wonderful week and would certainly recommend this property to anyone seeking to explore Keswick and the Lake District.

  • "-The bin instructions seemed clear but finding the right bin proved impossible - not sure if it was marked or not."

    -Could not find recycling facilities in Central car park as advertised, did find in Otley Rd. -The car park season ticket was well worth having for the £20 deposit from the office.

  • "My friend and I have stayed at this property 4 times - that tells you something!"

    We have stayed in Summer and Winter and love this property. Great location (especially with the dogs, few minutes walk to the lakeside or Fitz Park), car parking space invaluable, comfy beds, airy well equipped apartment. Yes, there is some noise in the morning due to deliveries to the shops, but it's not unexpected considering the location. Cannot fault anything about our holiday (2 July) had glorious weather in fabulous Keswick. Will be returning.

  • "We really enjoyed our first holiday with Sykes in this flat."

    The communication before we went was excellent as were the general directions, instructions etc. The flat was spacious and comfortable with every facility needed for the stay. The wifi, dishwasher and washing machine were a bonus and everything worked as it should except for the Playstation controller but that's minor (to me, tragic to our 9-year old!) anyway. We did dish wash the lovely wine glasses which unfortunately took the red colour off the stems, apologies for that but there was no warning that they weren't dishwasher safe. I would say the only small negatives are that parts of the flat (skirting boards, window frames) could be cleaner and the bathroom could do with updating and some TLC to the door. That didn't detract from how good it was, and what a convenient location it was is. Yes it's above a shop on a busy street but the noise was in no way intrusive, as stated by a previous reviewer who is clearly a pint half empty chap. So all in all a great flat, perfect for our needs and thanks very much!

  • "We had a great time in the Lakes."

    Our first week we stayed in Siskin and then moved to St Johns view. We would pick Siskin over St Johns View every time. Whilst it was perfectly adequate, roomy and mostly had what we needed, St. John’s View seems somewhat neglected. It needs redecorating and some of the fittings need replacing.

  • "The apartment was not very well described on the web site , it certainly is very accessible , it is certainly not pet friendly, it equipment and facilities are poor , the entrance to the flat is disgusting, the lock is fitted incorrectly, its very difficult to open the shop door, the shop alarm wakes you up every morning , I will not be recommending this or your company , I visit the lakes five or six times a year if I don't hear from you regarding this I will not be booking with you again sjtetther@aol."
