    “Perfect location and fantastic apartment”

    This was my fourth visit to Keswick and whilst I've previously stayed in a Bed and Breakfast or rented a cottage I will not be doing that again, I was very much impressed by this apartment. The rooms were bigger than they appear in the pictures and are tastefully decorated. If you are taking children they provide a Playstation 2 with plenty of games as well as a DVD player with a good choice of films. ...

    This was my fourth visit to Keswick and whilst I've previously stayed in a Bed and Breakfast or rented a cottage I will not be doing that again, I was very much impressed by this apartment. The rooms were bigger than they appear in the pictures and are tastefully decorated. If you are taking children they provide a Playstation 2 with plenty of games as well as a DVD player with a good choice of films. There's plenty of cooking utensils and a large fridge freezer for those staying for several days. The beds are comfortable and there's plenty of wardrobe space. Some other reviews have mentioned the awkwardness of eating in the kitchen which I would agree with as the eating space is quite small, there was only three of us and we managed. I'm not sure how four people could comfortably eat there though. Something to consider if you do not plan to eat out as we did most nights. The only other negative is the entry and stairwell which, again, is mentioned in other reviews. I must confess I entered through the doorway which is located at the back of a vestibule sandwiched between a shop and tattoo parlour and thought I'd accidentally entered a private part of the store and hesitated to go up. It is rough looking and makes you wonder what shape the apartment is going to be in but after going up one flight of stairs there is only this apartment and another one at the top of the stairs and once you get inside it's very different so please don't be put be off. One quick tip, the doorway is locked by the shop at 22:00 and the lock can be quite stiff and difficult to lock back up but persevere and it's fine. When the shop downstairs opens up of a morning the alarm system for the shop sounds quite loudly which on the first morning made me think our fire alarm was going off so gives you a bit of a scare but it's literally for seconds. We were there for an event in Keswick so didn't do any walking but for exploring Keswick itself and the restaurants and bars it's location is it's biggest plus. Thirty seconds walk from the front door and you're on the high street in Keswick, could not be better placed. In addition booking the apartment means you have an assigned car parking space in a car park behind the building, again, this is another big plus as places to park are like gold dust in Keswick. We were there from a Thursday to a Monday and didn't have any problems with noise off the street during the night or early mornings. For those that choose to stay I'd recommend Woodstone Pizza and Flamegrill which is directly opposite as well as The George pub both which is just a few doors down from the apartment. I will definitely stay here again.
