“It was a truly comfortable stay at the Hewetson Court, Keswick”
Reviewed 30 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Excellent accommodation. Great location - just next to the Town Hall. Rooms were comfortable, well furnished. The best part was the kitchen - which we used, to warm up food and prepare breakfast. The beds were nice and soft!! The skylight in the master bedroom kept the room delightfully lit up even on a dull day. And there was good heating all through. The instructions to find the apartment key even at midnight was very helpful. Thanks for a very well-spent few days in Keswick - this is our fourth visit to Keswick but the first one to Hewetson Court. We will definitely stay here again, if we come back for another visit to Keswick. But Wifi would be useful - there is none!!!! In this day and age - that is a must!!! Apartments on the high floors do not have lift! Very uncomfortable to walk up and down every time you go out!

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?
How easy was key pickup/access to the property? Overall condition of the property

Liked best: The location and the overall arrangement of the apartment
Liked least: No internet, the price was a tad too high - could be slightly lower! The walk up the stairs to the fourth floor was very uncomfortable!!!!

“The perfect base for a walking trip in the Lakes”

My wife, 15 week old baby boy and I stayed here for 4 nights. We selected the apartment based on its location and facilities and we weren’t disappointed and had a great 4-5 days walking in some icy cold snowy conditions!
Typically people write more about the bad than good so I’ll list the good points first and go into a bit more detail on the bad points since it would be useful feedback for the owners.
GOOD:
1. Location is spot on, next door to a supermarket and a host of shops, takeaways, pubs and restaurants within in 1 minutes walk.
2. Car parking space was very handy
3. Apartment was clean and had all the mod cons we required (WiFi would have been nice but then you pay for what you get)
4. A book shelf was well stocked with local walking guides which was a great touch
5. Bed was very comfortable as was the other furniture.
NEGATIVES:
The one gripe with the apartment was also linked to the time of year and weather outside - The rooms were all cold when we arrived and due to the storage radiators only charging up at night, we had no way of heating the bedrooms up on the first night. 11 degrees centigrade is too cold for a small baby to sleep so we needed to use extra blankets.
Nights 2-4 were fine after we cranked up all the storage heaters and used the electric fan heaters in the kitchen, bathroom and the electric fire in the living room. We didn’t need to use the second bedroom which was a good job because there was no radiator in the room so always remained cold.
The huge skylight in the main bedroom provided some welcome natural light however there are no blinds or curtains so you could feel the heat get sucked out of the room and I imagine the sunlight may be an issue in the summer when it gets light at 4am
IN SUMMARY:
We would definitely stay here again for the right price. LATRIGG, Hewetson Court, Keswick provided us with good quality, secure, basic accommodation at a good price in a great location.

Thank you for your review on this property.

We are sorry to hear of the issues you had during your stay.

This property does have night storage heaters and an electric heater in the lounge area. We do ensure that the storage heaters are on and functioning before the guests arrival, however the heat setting may need to be adjusted according to guests own preferences.

The owner has taken on board your comments and has confirmed that a blind has now been fitted to the sky light in the bedroom.

We do advise all guests to contact the office immediately on arrival or during their stay if they have any issues or problems with their property. Had we been made aware of these issues during your stay steps would have been taken to make sure your stay at this property was made as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.

We hope that the issue have raised did not detract from your enjoyment of the Lake District and we hope to welcome you back to one of our properties in the future.
