  • "The only negative was there were 2 lemon diffusers in the property which we had to put outside the door as the scent gives me a headache & sickness."

    We put them back as we left .

  • "Idea place to stay in bowness the stairs weren’t too bad but omg the smell!"

    When we first opened the door we thought maybe it hadn’t been used for a while might need airing but unfortunately the two hand towels, the bath towels, the tea towels and the bedding all smelt disgusting the place it’s self was lovely besides the big black foot prints in the shower that needed to be cleaned off the smell was a really bad smell of dirty towels and bedding we thought maybe if we sprayed air fresheners so bought some but no by the second night I couldn’t stand the smell so as you can imagine was very sleep deprived which ruined are stay you really need to use washing powder when washing that’s if they had been washed lovely little place would of definitely stayed again if it wasn’t for the smell and dirty floor throughout a real shame as it’s in an ideal spot for a lovely stay in bowness

    Thank you for your feedback and we are sorry you were unhappy. Our team checked the property before your arrival and did not notice any bad smells or anything unusual, if you had contacted us during your stay we could of sent somebody out to rectify any concerns you had. - The owners team Property Owner

    Ideal for couples ,as stated in listing this is a third floor apartment so not not suited for those with mobility issues. The apartment was very clean and comfortable. Kitchen has everything (and more than) you could possible require for your holiday

  • "This was exactly as described in the write up!"

    Even the stairs upto the apartment. This didn't put us off as the route to the main road and lakeside was literally a 3 minute walk! All the pubs, some with live music, and eateries you could ever want are just 5 minutes down the road toward the lakeside, where there are boat trips with fantastic views and other entertainment to keep you happy. A Co-op and Tesco extra are also on the main road for those little bits that you may need, although there is a welcome pack that is good when you arrive. Lots of everyday items available to use in the kitchen making breakfast by the window lovely. The rooms were a good size with plenty of storage. Quiet at night even though it's so close to the main areas. Only draw back was the Internet and no visible welcome advice booklet which we did eventually find. Have to say it was amazing for location and would suggest it to family and friends!

    Thank you so much for your kind and positive feedback. We are so pleased you found the apartment to your liking. We will investigate the WiFi further. Property Owner

  • "Treetops is a centrally located apartment at the top of the block."

    Not for the less abled who may struggle with stairs. Whilst we were there, we found the apartment comfortable and clean and everything we needed. The only thing I would say is I would prefer a washing machine to a dishwasher because I hate coming home with loads of washing to do. We didn't use the dishwasher at all as barely used anything. But that is of course a personal thing. I would definitely recommend Tree Tops; it's so close to the town centre and the sofa is so comfy, we relaxed on it during many rainy days in November!

  • "Amazing location, minutes away from the lake!"

    I loved the thoughtful additions in this property, like the fan for hotter days and extension leads! Everything went really smoothly with our time there and everything worked as expected. Definitely keep in mind the 3 flights of stairs though as this would be difficult for someone less able. Just a few minor notes: The floor was a bit dirty so I had to keep my slippers on otherwise my feet would be gross- a bit annoying after showering but not a deal breaker! It could maybe use a blanket on the sofa just to make it more cosy? It would’ve been nice to know some of the things included beforehand so we didn’t pack as much and walk it up them stairs!

    Thank you very much for your kind review. We are so pleased that you found the location and apartment to your liking. The cleaning issue will be addressed and we sincerely apologise for this. Property Owner

    We reported an issue with kitchen window lock not working which was dealt with speedily and professionally. We felt the mattress topper on bed for us was unnecessary and uncomfortable making the bed too high and rolling at edges. A cafetiere would also have been nice as we left ours behind thinking one to be there. We would recommend this accommodation if you want something central to the lake and all facilities.

  • "POSITIVES - Clean flat, plenty of kitchen utensils, bonus having a dishwasher NEGATIVES - The bed mattress was very uncomfortable (cheap poor quality mattress), it was like sleeping on a bouncy castle."

    We are both below 12 stones in weight and literally our bodies sunk into the mattress. A very uncomfortable sleep for the whole week. Also the blinds were pull down blinds which gave you no privacy during the daylight hours from the flats opposite or from the balconies to the right of the bedroom who can see into the bedroom from an angle. Had to keep the blinds down during the day. Other flats had vertical blinds which could be half opened during daylight hours to maintain privacy.

    The apartment was quite compact but was absolutely fine for what we needed and we both found the bed so comfy! Had initial reservations about the bed as a few reviewers had mentioned being uncomfortable due to it being quite soft and I suffer from a bad back but was pleasantly surprised to find I slept so well with minimal aches and pains! The apartment was clean and tidy, although I would have expected a slightly higher level of cleaning as there were quite a few surfaces that were quite dusty. This didn’t distract from our lovely stay though!

  • "When we booked the apartment, there had been no recent reviews, prior to our departure, there were a couple of recent ones."

    On seeing these that may have affected our booking of the apartment, but that was too late. The apartment is located in a very good place for shops, restaurants etc, there are many steps into the apartment. The bed mattress (in our opinion) was too soft, the dining room chairs you sank right down into them as you sat down, we were aware of the sink in the shower room being too small (from a recent review) which we agree with. On the whole the place was just big enough for 2 people.

    Thank you for your feedback, we are glad that you had an enjoyable stay at Tree Tops View. The mattress in the property has recently been replaced and is brand new, we are sorry you felt this was too soft for you.

  • "The only thing that spoilt the accommodation was the shower room."

    The sink is so tiny and inconveniently located that you can do no more than wash your hands without water spilling out and down the front panel and on to the floor. This has created damp, which is the first thing you smell as you open the shower room door. Washing your face, or rinsing your mouth after brushing your teeth, involves twisting your head sideways to avoid banging your head on the wall, and to minimise the water running off your face and onto the floor.

    Exactly what we were looking for. Two issues - the sofa and the bed were uncomfortable. The bed's mattress was too soft and you rolled off the side. The softness of a mattress is a personal preference I know but this was very soft and by the 3rd night, I couldn't sleep properly on it and had to get up and lie on the sofa which was also uncomfortable as the cushions were too thin.
