The service was fantastic, the apartment was everything it said it would be, clean, spacious and extremely well fitted out, we even had a dishwasher! (Don't have one at home, yet!)
It was well situated, just off the high street, which meant that we could have a wander round and as soon as my husband started to feel tired we just had to saunter through the alleyway and back to the flat, a home away from home and a perfect holiday. We both thoroughly enjoyed our stay which is important as my husband has mobility problems and is visually impaired. Read more

The location is brilliant in the entire and yet not noisy, the apartment is lovely especially yet e suite and tv in bedroom wow, we visit Keswick 3 times a year so love the area and this apartment is ideal. Do stay here if you get the chance
We spent a week in Keswick touring and visiting relatives.Amba Royal Oak House was in the centre of Keswick perfect for eating out in the evenings. Mum needed a wheelchair to help her get about so the lift to the first floor apartment was essential.An en-suite shower( not over the bath) was ideal for mum although it had a small step in and was too small for someone to get in to shower her.Still we managed very well. The accomodation was spotless and very well equipt with quality goods. Crockery, dishwasher ,washer/dryer TV /DVD, books, games, videos, you name it , it was there even down to washing up liquid and rubbish bags. Thankyou.

I recently stayed here with my husband and dog! I have stayed in many places in Keswick over the years, all of which have been fantastic, but as soon as we walked into the apartment we both said at the same time "wow!" - not knowing what to expect we were both absolutely thrilled with the apartment, it had everything you need, was so spacious, clean and comfortable. You wouldnt know pets were able to stay here it was spotless. The location is perfect and we were extremely lucky to have picked a week that provided us with wall to wall sunshine everyday! I wouldnt hesistate in recommending this property - what a find!

Enjoyed a pleasant stay having booked through the website a week before arrival the service was quick and hassle free.
The apartment was comfortable and homly had everything you could ask for (was loving the dishwasher as a novalty) the only down side the central heating was inadiquate when we arrived so we ajusted the settings to suit also there was a very strong draft through the fire escape by the door leading the the apartment, this would not have been noticable in warmer conditions.
Location was ideal for a saunter into town, pub, restaurants and shops on your door step. Quiet location, derwent water walkable in 5minutes. Town centre parking comes with the apartment, so your able to leave car there all holiday or easily get out of town to other parts of the National Park. Overall it was a great stay and I would recommend this accomodation.

It's in a nice building but the apartment itself is tired and in real need of upgrading. Rooms were clean but the black mould round the kitchen sink (of all places) was pretty off-putting!! Sadly condensation made the place smell damp and musty. Read more
Your comments and reviews are very important to us and as such have now been investigated.
We do advise all guests to contact the office immediately if they have any problems or issues with their property. Unfortunately we did not received a call from you regarding any problems with mold or damp smells. Had we been informed, we would have arranged for a cleaner to attend to these issues.
We can also confirm that the kitchen has now been refurbished and all the bedrooms have been restyled with new bedding and curtains. A new boiler has also been fitted. The owners ensure that maintenance is ongoing every year.
May I take this opportunity to apologise for any inconvenience caused during your 14 day stay at Amba and hope to welcome you back to one of our properties in the future.

Great town centre location. Good first impression of apartment..2 bedrooms , 1 ensuite. Large lliving room, adequate kitchen. Parking 4 1 vehicle. Initial impression spoilt by a few silly irratating maintenance issues. Loo seat broken (no I not carry a screwdriver in my bag). Tap in kitchen broken, curtain off runner, bin smelt, cleaning standards not great particularly in ensuite shower. No outside space. Washing machine leaked!
Some great places to eat, drink and chew the fat. Dog friendly.
Central and we'll equipped apartment for families and couples al

Brilliant central location in a vibrant small town

Having had two or three days hill walking and cycling it was wonderful to soak up the comforts of this apartment. There were loads of space to chill out and refresh before a mere wander into one of the local pubs for tea or the local theatre for a play. Although in the heart of a bustling small town, geared towards outdoor activities, once through the front door, there is tranquility and a relaxed atmosphere. The only challenge was loading and unloading kit, as parking is across a main thoroughfare and along an alley. However, the privacy of the apartment and the vast array of amenities, including a national chain coffee shop literally on the door step, made up for this. Recommended for every one from the hardened outdoor nut to family's with very young or elderly. Oh - and there's a park close by for those with dogs.
A great, central family base - felt like home from home.

We had a lovely week staying in the appartment with our 5 year old. Booking via the internet was very straightforward. The description and previous reviews on trip advisor gave a good reflection of the appartment.It was clean, well-equipped and comfortable. The living room and bedrooms were nicely furnished and decorated and the kitchen had everything we needed in the way of cooking equipment and utensils. Fridge and freezer were both good family size for a group of 4.
The location was very central - there was some street noise on Saturday night and the windows were not double-glazed so not very sound-proof but it didn't disturb us greatly and it was much quieter for the rest of the stay.
There was no view at all from the bedrooms as they faced roofs across a narrow alleyway but the curtains and decor made both rooms seem bright.

All arrangement re booking, keys etc. went very smoothly. The apartment was well equipped and as described. It was quite clean but far from perfect on this front. We had a comfortable stay and enjoyed being able to pop down to the local shops and amenities very easily, especially as the weather was varied.
