“EXCELLENT LOCATION”
Reviewed May 22, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Stayed here with my friend and her dog the week commencing 9th May 2016. The apartment is lovely. It is spacious, well equipped, light and airy. The floors are wooden which was ideal for the dog due to the hot weather (had a glorious week of sunshine). The bedrooms were good sizes with extremely comfy beds and plenty of storage. The kitchen is modern and well equipped. The living room was spacious with large sash windows and large settees. The wi-fi was reliable and we always had a connection. The location is great (can be a bit noisy in the morning due to delivery vehicles) in the centre of Keswick. The car park space is a minute's walk away, situated behind the George pub. I have been visiting Keswick for many years and this is the best location I have stayed in. Everything is on the door step and of course Keswick is so dog friendly. Really enjoyed our week here and would definitely recommend to friends and family. Could not fault our stay.

“Great Location”
Reviewed October 12, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

I stayed here with my husband and another couple for a short break. Upon arrival we were dissapointed, the entrance to the apartment was next to a shop, which made it difficult for us to enter with our bags as there was mountains of cardboard boxes and two bicycles blocking the doorway. The stair case leading to the apartment was filthy, dust and spider webs everywhere, with unsightly damp patches on the walls. At this point we were all complaining and then we went into the apartment itself. What a change! The apartment is lovely, spacious enough for two couples, had everything we needed if we choose to cater for ourselves, the beds were clean and comfy and the lounge roomy and airy. Each bedroom was bright and clean and had plenty of storage space for our clothes There was plenty of hot water for everyone to have showers and the bath was spotless. We tried to put a bulb in the lounge lamp and realised that it is in fact the lamp that is broken, this didn't really make a difference to our stay but the room would be better with a cosy lamp. As in a previous review, I was not impressed with being asked to strip the beds, I do that at home often enough and certainaly do not want to do it on my holidays. The best thing about the apartment is the location, yes there is a little noise sometimes from the shop below, but that is to be expected, however you are only a few steps away from the local pubs, cafes, market and shops. This review would have been better if only the entry way was cleaned and tidied. It gives the worst first impression possible.

“More cons than pros”
Reviewed August 10, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Location may be handy but it's also very very noisey, not just because it's centrally situated but becuase it's above an "open all hours" shop. Lorries pulled up as early as 5am with deliveries, you would have to be deaf to be able to sleep through this.
There are no working lamps in the flat so it was relax with glaring ceiling lights or sit in darkness. This situation had not been sorted even though previous visitors had highlighted it as a problem in the visitors book. The bathroom is dated and desparately needs painting. One of the bedrooms had the worst matress we had ever encountered in a holiday rent, the other one was fine. A shared hallway makes a terible 1st impression, it's filthy. There's rubbish and dog hair everywhere, the paint is peeling off the wall and so is the plaster in some areas, it really smells too. Good points? The flat has plenty of space and was generally clean. However, we were not impressed by being left instructions to strip the beds of linen ourselves. Firstly, I am on holiday to get away from these domestic chores and secondly isn't that what we are paying for?

“Great location, fine for our needs”
Reviewed May 25, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We spent 4 days in this lovely town and beautiful area, and this apartment fit our needs well. The location couldn't have been better- a half block from the rental office where we picked up keys and towels (they must be rented separately and were quite nice), a half block from the square and close to stores, restaurants, parks and trails, and amenities. Although the entrance to the apartment looks a little shaky as it shares the entryway with a convenience store, and there is one flight of steps (wide and well-lit), the place was spacious and had everything we needed. The place was clean and had lots of plugs, extra bedding, cleaning and laundry supplies and a hair dryer. The beds were very comfortable, there were large closets in the bedroom, and the large bathroom was great with a wonderful shower and plenty of hot water. The gathering room was also quite large, but quite dim. The overhead light was inadequate and the one standing lamp did not work. There were two small tables to move around for holding drinks, etc., but they were not entirely sufficient and were heavy to move. The kitchen, though adequately equipped, had an awkward layout, making it difficult to work in. The eating arrangement was especially awkward, with a fixed table and chairs that had to be adjusted for height. That being said, we did just fine. The heating was difficult to manage- we controlled it with open windows and blankets. That meant some street noise, especially at night, but it was not a big problem. The free wi-fi was fast and consistent. Although there were some features that we felt could be improved, the apartment was overall a good find at a reasonable price. I would recommend it for a moderate level accommodation.

“Lovely Easter Stay at St. Johns View, Keswick”
Reviewed April 8, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Stayed over the Easter period 2015 with spouse and 2 teenage kids. What a pleasant surprise to have a fully furnished 2 bedroom flat with all mod-cons including superfast broadband. Place was decorated tastefully and located on the main street in Keswick overlooking bars and restaurants. Great being behind the 'Open All Hours' convenience store, perfect for quick shopping trips. Visited Lake Buttermere and Derwentwater during our stay, perfect base to travel from, car parking permit enable us to park in the Central Car Park.
Highly recommend this apartment for your stay here in Keswick.

“superb accommodation”
Reviewed October 27, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Excellent location very central. The apartment is just lovely very spacious and would appear to have undergone a recent refurbished to a very good high standard with modern fixtures and fittings excellent living space. We were concerned about late night noise as the accommodation is on a busy thoroughfare however we didn't hear anything and weren't disturbed during the night. Very homely with everything you need. The only suggestion I have is that the owner considers a cleaner once a week for the shared entrance staircase which when we arrived looked a little unsightly and could give a poor first impression to passers by who may be considering booking this lovely apartment, we were a little concerned on arrival as to what we might find but once in the apartment it was immaculate and we were pleasantly surprised, we would definitely recommend the apartment and stay here again. Superb.
