Fantastic location, good house, but lacked customer care and qua

We were really pleased with the location of this property and the cleanliness was great. However, when we arrived there was no complimentary tea/coffee which we'd expect at the price of this property. We also hadn't realised the twin room was a double bed, which made it a little tricky when we arrived late in the day with our three kids needing to go to bed. The house was also incredibly warm and we couldn't open the sitting room/dining room windows, which meant that the only way we could cool the house was by having the front/back doors open, which isn't ideal. We were relieved we hadn't stayed the previous week when there was a heatwave! Finally, the hedge next to the property was very overgrown meaning that each time we walked through the gate we were soaked from all the rain water it had accumulated! Of course, not the end of the world, but something you don't expect when paying money for this level of property.
We were very happy with the location, Keswick is full of fantastic museums, there's beautiful countryside nearby and we had a really good week.
We liked being so close to the Keswick Convention and being in Keswick best of all. We liked least paying high prices and not really receiving the kind of special care and quality of property that you'd expect for that money.

... except it might get too busy to re-book it again! Having stayed in a different cottage for a number of happy visits to Keswick, my first stay in archers was a reluctant change - but i was more than satisfied, and look forward to returning if i ever have the opportunity to work in the Lakes again. Comfortable, cosy, well-equipped. Great location for being central to shops, but easy access for walks, cycling etc...
Central location, very clean, comfortable and well equipped.

We had a very pleasant stay in this appartment in Keswick. We were holidaying with in-laws and specifically selected this property because of the brochure advertisement stated there were two double en-suite rooms. Imagine our disappointment when it proved that only one room is actually en-suite. The other room has a separate private shower room. Very good shower and clean, but off the kitchen and utility area so not at all private. When we collected the key on Saturday morning it was just handed over without a word or any advice as to where to find the propery etc. or enjoy your stay. There was no welcome pack such as tea/coffee/milk, which we have found at other holiday cottage. However, that said the property is very clean, comfortable and centrally located, parking a bit of a issue as it was the very busy Jubilee weekend.

We had originally booked for another holiday cottage but the heating and hot water were broken so we had a bit of trouble moving all of our luggage out again and on to archers. Our original cottage had a better location in Station Road so we were initially quite disappointed, especially as we realised that the property was not as clean as it should have been - there was a tacky feel to the lino in the kitchen, and some crumbs on the kitchen work surface. However, the agency probably had not had time to inspect the property before giving us the keys.
Archers is not actually that far from the centre of town and is really a very comfortable cottage. It has a large living room with TV, two bedrooms (1 en suite), and a good size fully equipped kitchen. The en suite and the main bathrooms both had very good, powerful showers. There was easy internet access, and a good number of books and games none of which we needed as we were able to get out walking every day.
I'd like to say we'd have no problem staying there again but I don't think we would be allowed to bring our dog. They waived the 'no dog' stipulation as otherwise we'd have been left with no accommodation. However, I'd be happy to recommend this property to anyone.
