  • "I would give location of Aaron’s Place 11/10 as it is right in the centre of the village and comes with a parking space."

    However, the cleanliness left a lot to be desired. The wooden floor from the hall through the open plan lounge kitchen and then on into the bedroom was really dirty. The rugs were horrific with dirt and visible stains, some of the furnishings were damaged and stained too. The light in the bedroom had a dimmer but would not be suitable for anyone with photo sensitive epilepsy as it was like a disco light flashing on and off. The bathroom was very nice and the shower was great, but I think maybe providing more than one loo roll wouldn’t go amiss. Also the kitchen was nice with all your basic requirements to hand. We didn’t let the issues spoil our holiday and focused on the apartments excellent location.

  • "This property is really well located to the town and to the stunning lake windermere."

    The property itself is very cosy and warm and has all the home from home comforts. The main concern is the damp problem the property has. The bathroom in particular does need attention as you can't expect the window to be opened everytime you shower. It's nice to have parking at a property in a town but if the 3 bedroom apartment upstairs is also booked you would really struggle to find a space as there is only 2 spaces available. On the whole a lovely little base to explore from.

  • "Price and location excellent."

    Obvious problem with damp which obviously can’t be helped given location. Comfortable stay, great heating and lovely hot and powerful shower. Could have done with a few more kitchen bits ie glasses, chopping board and oven trays. Overall enjoyed our stay, cosy and brilliant location to explore from.

    Reported there was no WiFi on two occasions was told you would contact the owners about it and let me know the result no reply reported the bathroom door wouldn't close and the rug stunk of ammonia so put it in the cupboard no other problems apart from that it was a lovely place

  • "I would have rated top in everything but the dishwasher did not work after day 3 of the holiday this was a key selling point for us in the facilities of the cottage which meant we would have more time to do other things instead of washing up and drying the pots."

    It was a struggle to connect to the after 5pm number provided I then had to ring on numerous occasions which took a lot of time to get through meaning less time exploring the lakes as we had to hold the dishwasher was never fixed.

  • "This is a great little flat, superbly kitted out for such a small space."

    We loved it, great location, a short walk to the field next to the lake is a nice space to safely walk the dog. I would suggest that the information includes reference to the low ceilings. Not a problem for my daughter or I but we’re only 5’4” and could touch the ceiling without stretching up. Would definitely stay here again.

  • "Nice apartment,enjoyed the stay, central location everything you need close, shops,restaurants, pubs no need to use the car, parking a bit tight other people use the access to the rear & the accommodation above, which could be noisy, the other occupants left a couple of days early so it was lovely and quiet."

    No garden but walks only 5 mins away to take the dog for the first walk. Washer & dryer came in handy due to the inclement weather! Dishwasher if you need it. Take some loo rolls only left 2 for the week not enough. We will make a return visit.

  • "We are very disappointed, we had to come home a night early due to being woken up every night at half12 from the noise from the people upstairs for a solid 1."

    5 hours. Also we was given 1 toilet roll for the whole of the stay so had to go buy our own. The place was freezing no where to dry our walking clothes as these can’t be tumble dried and we couldn’t get the heating to work. Dish washer in the place also doesn’t work.

  • "The apartment was excellent, modern and the bed was so comfortable we had no problem sleeping."

    It was a perfect location the private parking was really useful as it was extremely busy when we arrived, we will definitely be staying again and would recommend it to anyone. If I had to say anything bad about our stay the only think I can think of is that we had one toilet roll for a 4 day stay but other than that it was excellent

    Just what we have been wanting. Just needed a hairdryer. Everything clean. Loved the refurb. Was so impressed when I realised it had been refurbed as I wasn't looking forward to it before I saw that. Can't wait to book again

  • "My partner and I stayed in Aaron’s place at the beginning of July just as lockdown had finished, when we arrived we were pleasantly surprised to see the apartment had been completely redecorated and looked nothing like the pictures shown, everything was new."

    It’s small cozy and is a delight to stay in, the bed is comfy as is the settee. The location is just perfect slap bang in the centre of Bowness tucked away, there is a supermarket literally just round the corner and the awesome Hole In T Wall pub on the doorstep, within five minutes walk your right beside Lake Windermere. The parking is directly outside the apartment we have a CR-V and there was no problem parking. My only criticism about the apartment is we could hear footsteps from the upstairs apartment but It wasn’t an issue for us. We loved it so much we are returning next month. My only, other, criticism is that of Sykes themselves, prior to our arrival we tried to contact the owner via Sykes and got no response, We tried to contact Sykes and still no response, at the time the pictures had not been updated on the website and I have already tried to submit a review before but it never got published. But if you are looking for a cozy apartment where it’s location location then you can’t go wrong.

  • "Photos of flat very misleading making it look a lot bigger than it actually was."

    Car parking area very untidy and tight to park your car safely. We actually never slept there due to the prime minister closing bars, cafes and restaurants the night we arrived So we went straight home. I spoke to Sykes who weren’t sympathetic and ruled out a refund. This is an unprecedented situation but we weren’t offered an alternative.

  • "The boiler issue just got worse and worse it become that bad it was a joke!"

    To ignite the hob the dishwasher had to be switched on? You open the kitchen draw and knocked off the oven button? The Toilet System was SO LOUD when you flushed it sounded like upstairs was joining us! The toilet door is badly fitted so have to come in and shut it to get to the toilet itself! Sykes have been amazing and I will book again but the apartment was a joke. That's without knowing exactly what upstairs are doing and the gate banging against the bedroom wall! It's such a shame as the apartment had so much great potential.

    Thank you for your feedback. We apologise that the boiler issue was not rectified during your stay as we had hoped to. We will have all of this attended to and we are very pleased you had a good experience with Sykes. Property Owner

  • "Hi Arrons place was almost perfect, right location off street parking close to everything however the following things did have some effect on the week, We were on a tight budget and could not afford to eat out everyday."

    There was no tin opener and the oven did not work, There were instructions for the hob in the flat but none for the oven. We found the bed very hard to the point where my wife had to sleep on the settee. None of this spoilt our holiday but may do for others. Thanks

  • "Great location near the shops and restaurants so we didn't need to use the car for going out to eat in the evenings."

    Kitchen needs a chopping board and scissors. Oven was flashing on automatic when we arrived so had to fiddle with buttons, which had worn out and unreadable symbols but eventually got it on manual. (We understand the owner has only just started holiday letting so these little things are easily fixed) Otherwise brilliant place.

  • "The property is in the centre of Bowness on Windermere."

    Pubs and shops less than a minute away. Walk to ferry 20 minutes. Entrance to parking area difficult to spot. Parking tricky (slow reverse in is best). A semi-basement flat, and windows give only limited view of outside. Compact but adequate size. Stools need serious attention to stop squeaks and wobbles. Useful GSH. Shower good, with a big bath. Toilet was noisy, but was fixed during visit. Did not feel secure, as intermediate door was opened twice by trades men. No means of locking this door. Appeared clean and fresh.
