  • "Lovely! Really enjoyed staying there."

    Small but really perfectly formed. Spotless, comfortable, well equipped and great location. Not for publishing: Before the holiday I enquired about whether there was a hairdryer and was told no but there is one so maybe the details need updating?

    Thank you very much for your kind and positive review of Tree Tops View. We are so pleased you had an enjoyable stay and found the apartment to your liking and all your needs catered for. Property Owner

  • "A neat compact apartment near to everything that you would need in Bowness."

    This was the third time I have stayed here, so it's obviously something of a favourite, and I will certainly come back again. Also - a first in all the properties I have stayed in over the years - knives in the kitchen that are actually sharp enough to cut!

    Thank you for your review following your stay at Tree Tops View apartment. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay and found the apartment to your liking. It is great to hear that you will definitely stay here again and we hope to welcome you back very soon. Property Owner

  • "We were very happy with accommodation, very comfortable and clean."

    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.

  • "Had a lovely stay at Tree Tops and it was a great base to explore the surrounding area from."

    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!

  • "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 excellent apart from the cleanliness of the toilet, other than that we had a brilliant holiday.

  • "A wonderful apartment ideal for visiting the Lakes."

    Centrally located in Bowness and very close to all amenities. Parking spot is a bonus. Close to a main road, so slightly noisy, but not enough to spoil any enjoyment of the location.

  • "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. Thank you for your comments about the dining chairs, we will investigate this further. We are pleased you thought the apartment was comfortable for 2 people, and we hope you will visit again soon.

  • "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.

  • "Great apartment."

    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.

    E. pleasant and modern. It was very convenient for the town and overall was very clean and comfortable. People renting this accommodation do however need to be aware that it is a very small apartment, and that there are several sets of stairs to climb (not just 3). The shower room (although generally clean) is starting to show signs of mold on the ceiling and bottom of the shower door. There is also a slight smell of mould in the shower room.
