- If you want to be very close to the town centre you can't get much closer than this! The apartment is compact but fine for 2 people. The lounge/dining area/kitchen has ample space and is light and airy. We also found the area very quiet. As parking is extremely difficult in Keswick, the dedicated parking space was essential for us as my husband is disabled.
The furnishings in the apartment were ok but we found the sofa, the only seating area, most uncomfortable and the oven, a combination oven/microwave was almost unusable!!! It was extremely difficult to understand even after getting the matainance man (who was very helpful) to help me try to understand it. It was written in the visitors book on most of the entries that others had had the same problem. It seems like all the other apartments have the same oven and had the same problem. Maybe for next season new, more simple to use ovens should be installed??!!
The bedroom was very tiny and has no window. Although the weather wasn't too warm while we were staying in Keswick we found the bedroom extremely hot and stuffy at night. The shower room was small but quite adequate. The overhead shower head and the handheld shower both worked well however, the handheld fixture was set very high up, almost as high as the rain shower head, and could not be adjusted down. Totally useless for me as am only 5 foot 5 inches tall!!!!
For the money we paid we think this apartment was very expensive for facilities and comfort offered. It was very clean, in a great location and with a few alterations could be so much better.
