"I was disappointed by this service considering we plaid close to £500 for 2 nights."
I feel ripped off. The directions on how to find that actual flat was a nightmare, parking is awful. The actaul flat entrance is on the main street, there is no mention of this on the booking or ad for the flat. We had no hot water for the first night and we supplied with half a roll of toilet paper for 3 people for 4 nights
Eve's attic lovely cosy and warm (no poblem drying wet shoes coats etc.) Great location for touring lakes.. buses right outside and free with our old peoples bus pass! Would definatley stay again
"Excellent location ,clean and tidy accommodation ,easily within walking distance of Bowness pubs and bars ."
"Jean Paul of Orion services accessed our entry to this flat after 3 hours!"
!!!!We were unable to open the "BOX" to get key!!!! Then we were unable to start the electric cooker hobs because WE do not know that this is induction cooker and requires specific weighted "Pans" to start the cooking facility!!!!Why were we not advised of this.Again Jean Paul of Orion helped us!!!! Again we were unexpecting the flat was on 3rd floor.We are retirees!!!! This holiday flat was overalll,because of above instances, a complete disaster!!! We will never use Sykes again because we were not advised of any of above.In fairness Sykes staff ,who worked bank holiday weekend were terrific but we spent 15 pounds worth of phone calls!!!!

Found the shower a little difficult to operate but other than that we were very comfortable and would love to stay there again
"Lovely two bedroom apartment, great location."
"Eves attic is a lovely comfortable place to stay whilst in the Lake District."
Every thing we needed was provided to make our stay a real home from home.lots to do in the surrounding area. Will definitely be returning.
"Please see your reference number as sent to me COR-207601-CF"
"The flat is very small - OK for the two of us but I think describing it as suitable for four id being optimistic."
It can sleep four but you have to move the sofa to get two people at the table and it would be virally impossible to seat 4 at it. The fan oven didn't work (just blew cold air) but the management company were responsive. I don't know if they managed to fix it quickly as we left after one night. Not impressed by Sykes Cottages generally - when the Covid lockdown scuppered the stay we had booked in April we were only given the option to rebook for a future date rather than cancel and receive either our money back or credit for a future booking. Having to rebook for an arbitrary date (and pay extra!) meant that we were stuck with going this October which was not ideal and the reason we just stayed one night. Hence we wasted a lot of money and won't be using Sykes again.
"Eve's Attic is in a great location in the centre of Bowness."
. Very clean and cosy apartment with car parking at the rear. Even if you have no car or want to leave it at home it's 5 minute bus ride from Windermere train station. We used the local buses every day(free for us older folk). We had a great few days.
"Poor cleaning ..."
Poor cleaning Stained pillows bedding cushions matte protectors Mouldy curtains unclean cutlery Uncomfortable double bed Perfect location
"Poor shower Tv didn’t work Very uncomfortable bed Location very good"
"What I enjoyed most about this holiday, was being in this location and staying at this accommodation."
I loved the views and found my stay, comfortable and relaxing. I would definitely come back again, I had an amazing time.
"Home was nice, clean and warm, located at heart of the city with easy access to everything."
They had good collection of books/CDs and games as well. The only drawback was the absence of wifi. Customer care were easy to get through and available when we needed them.
"The property was reasonably priced and suited our family needs almost perfectly."
However, the electric shower is a hazard. It went from scorching hot to cold so unusable. Instead, we had to share the water in the bath, which for a family of four, was not ideal.
"Enjoyable short stay in this cosy apartment in what is our favourite part of the country."
Everything that you need is close at hand, with plenty of choices to eat out and many visitors attractions just a short trip away. Having been used to a memory foam bed, we found the bed slightly uncomfortable ( maybe just our preference ) - but that was probably the only slight negative side of things ..... don't let that put you off though if you are thinking of choosing this on your visit to Windermere.

Very good location view of lake worth the climb of the stairs to apartment every time Good facilities and clean rooms and comfortable beds Easy access to shopping and for us busses to and from locations made the holiday most enjoyable Only gripe was no WIFI available in apartment a necessary in today’s times
"The directions to the flat were the worse I have ever come across."
We spent at least 30 minutes driving around and walking around trying to find the flat entrance. Nowhere does it say that the building is 25 Quarry Rigg. Renters are told that access to the flat is by the side of a tattoo shop. There is no tattoo shop. On arrival, it was apparent that the apartment had been very superficially cleaned. I have photo evidence of the bombay mix and empty drugs packet lying on the floor of the second bedroom. There was a thin film of dust over the dining table. Compared with other self-catering accommodation that we have stayed in, it was very unwelcoming.
"The location of the apartment was ideal being near plenty of eating and drinking options plus the car parking was really useful."
The apartment itself was well equipped and comfortable but the directions for the stair access needs updating, probably next to the cash machine would be more accurate. However we were more than satisfied with the facilities.
"We were overall disappointed with Eve’s attic."
When we arrived it hadn’t been cleaned properly so we had to call the maintenance number to get them to come back. Also all dishes had to be re washed before eating and drinking ...not a good start to our holiday. We did expect it to be small and basic which was fine but it just wasn’t comfortable. The sofas were tiny, poor quality and uncomfortable ...they were so light when you sat on them you slid across the room. We have a child so we can’t stay out all evening so we wanted to relax in the living room which sadly we couldn’t really do. Finally I attempted to have a bath on 2 occasions but there wasn’t enough hot water and I ended up in a Luke warm bath.
"Small but adequate apartment right in the heart of town."
Ideal base for exploring Bowness and the lake district. Would book again.
"Location of the flat is excellent, right in the middle of Bowness."
The accomodation is clean and tidy with a great view of Windermere from the living area, our 12 year old daughter and her best friend loved their bedroom, which overlooked the shops. Highly recommended place to visit and a great base to get around the area, we would definitely go back, perfect for small families amd groups, everything is on your doorstep but also nice and quiet.
"The apartment was clean and the location was convenient."
Good kitchen facilities with all the necessary cooking materials and cutleries. There were not enough toiletries in the bathroom though, the hand wash was empty even on arrival. Overall, the apartment was good.
"The apartment was immaculate, and ideally positioned for exploring the area and the numerous local amenities."
Whilst not an issue to ourselves, I feel the lack of wi if may deter future customers in this technological age we find ourselves living in, I must re- iterate the facilities are a credit to the apartments owners!
