  • "We read some negative reviews which we don’t agree with."

    Yes some parts could be updated and maybe it’s not a hotel, but rooms and suites with a view, but it was very clean and served it’s purpose most definitely. It was comfortable and the views and location were amazing. We stayed in the thirlmere suit and we would go back and stay in the same suite. To repeat, view from the window was amazing and the location more so, especially for serious walkers.

  • "Location of the property was perfect for our needs."

    Owners, when required, were keen to offer a pleasing service. However we booked as we could share the hotel facilities but only breakfast was on offer, which if we had known wouldn’t have booked. For me the accommodation was caught between self catering and hotel room but offered neither. No toaster, hoover or brush for the dust pan to keep clean, with muddy boots this was required. Just needed a tidy up and some fans in the kitchen and bathroom. Didn’t effect our stay and an enjoyable week but we wouldn’t go back in it’s current state.

  • "The setting of the property is sublime, with a beautifully kept garden sweeping down to the lake."

    We enjoyed the peaceful restful week we had needed. Great to have such a lovely bathroom (with bath) and access to responsive attention when needed. Many thanks .

    General cleaning around windows. And outside the entrance. We did have a wonderful stay. And it was very quiet which we enjoyed.

  • "First class location for a peaceful, relaxing break."

    Set in its own grounds & able to walk down to and around Lake Thirlmere if you want to. The on site restaurant only able to provide a breakfast currently (first week in October 2021), due lack of staff....sure that will be temporary though. Thirlmere Suite has its own kitchen facilities of course. May mean finding eating places, but as we went out every day....regardless of Lake District weather.....that was not a problem. Just 6 miles from centre of Keswick. All good. Selsey Duo

  • "View of the lake."

    Comfortable bed and well equipped kitchen. Great place for serious walkers. Routes to Helvellyn from the door.

  • "The accommodation wasn't quite as listed and this made a big difference to our stay."

    The 'private' terrace wasn't private as there was an adjoining suite which used the same area. This also meant that when you opened the main curtains they could walk past which meant the room wasn't private either. There was also a locked door that led from our room into the hotel, which wasn't used and made us feel a bit uncomfortable. Unfortunately we thought the suite was separate from the hotel but it wasn't and the walls were very thin which meant we heard a lot of noise from above and to the side of us. The cleanliness was also not up to standard, especially as they currently have more time to clean due to covid. There were stains on the towels, dead bug marks on the wall, stains on the carpet and hairs in the bath. The bathroom was also not finished, the ceiling wasn't painted and there was a tile missing on the wall. This room has an incredible view which is brilliant but the overall quality of the room did not meet our expectations or the price we paid.

  • "The WLAN connection was partly poor."

    Nowadays internet access is very important because a lot of bookings can only be done online. Further it was an open access which is based on security measures questionable. Improvement urgent necessary. The suite itself was nice with new fitted (not complete - seal was not painted, no aeration ventilation, no electric shaver point) bathroom. Kitchen equipment was ok but only one coffee mug for two. Improvement possible. Very nice location and very friendly helpful staff.

    It is a lovely apartment in a great location.

  • "It would have been useful to have hooks in the kitchen to hang tea/hand towels."

    The frying pan had lost its non stick and had a build up of charcoal on its surface so not used. Plus one wooden spatular which had a split in it and probably harbouring bacteria. Otherwise the cottage was very clean and comfortable and we would not hesitate to return.
