The first time we stayed in this apartment (4) we were on our own and this time we had our two grandchildren with us (aged 7 & 10). We let the boys have the double bed and we had the two singles. The lounge suite and lounge carpet had been renewed since our last visit in July 2014 as well as the curtains. However, I did feel that the new curtains although very nice still stuck on the rails and the hooks kept on falling out - not a big problem, but blackout blinds would have been the better option. The washing machine still used very hot water even on a 30 deg wash and this could be a problem if you were washing merino wool walking tops or other technical gear. However, not to be negative, this apartment is still in a prime position in Keswick with the all important parking space which is invaluable. Lots of child friendly walks from Keswick and the leisure centre, crazy golf and lake not far away. There is a lack of mirror space and good lighting in the bathroom - would suggest down lighters on the next upgrade. Because we had the twin bedded room, I had to keep on going into the main bedroom to dry my hair as there were no electrical sockets close to the dressing table, and the mirror was too high for me to see in as I am 5ft tall. The double bedroom had a long moveable mirror with a socket extension (not perfect but OK). All in all a good stay, but care is needed to be on keep on the ball with regard to facilities to keep the luxury tag. We paid £600 for the week in Peak Season. Morrel's continues to be the best restaurant in the area, and although we did not visit this time (no dedicated children's menu), we struggled to find anywhere as good. In fact the choice of pub food was over priced and basically the same in all the Keswick pubs. The only one we though good was Wainwrights - at the end of the street. Be aware of the huge number of stairs to reach the attic apartment No. 4) mentioned in the brochure - this is no exaggeration and would definitely not be suited to anyone with a walking a difficulty. Free wifi a bonus but a little bit hit and miss at times and you kept having to log in. Despite the negatives, we would stay again if in the area.
