Our family of 5 spent 4 nights in a two-bedroom apartment. It was splendid with the amount of space we had: sprawling living room, eat-in kitchen, two huge bedrooms and a very large bathroom (even has a lounge chair and coffee table).
Kitchen was very well equipped with even a blender, dishwasher, etc. Although the hotel restaurant serves pretty decent food at reasonable rates, we treasure the opportunity to cook ourselves.
Location is excellent, just a short drive from Keswick town with great shops, bakery, restaurants and supermarkets. Hotel has a nice garden, beyond which within a 5 minute stroll is the lake itself. Very picturesque.
Best part is the service. Receptionist is very helpful. When I inquired the time it takes to drive to Heathrow, next time I saw him he gave me printed directions from Google Map. Called him re. minor issues with the apartment (light bulbs broken) and they were solved the following day.
I don't understand why this ranks last among the hotels in Keswick, but I think this offers excellent value for money!
