    “This was a nice, modern, spotlessly clean flat, in the heart of Bowness, with easy access to the town, the lake and beyond.”

    There were many positives, such as the excellent kitchen facilities, modern bathroom, the good size lounge area, the garden area and the fact that the flat was very warm. I am, therefore, reluctant to mention any negatives. However, it is important to be truthful when giving feedback. The bedroom area was very small and claustrophobic, with no room for a dressing table and without an accessible electrical socket, making it very difficult for hair drying etc. On a personal note, it was a ...

    There were many positives, such as the excellent kitchen facilities, modern bathroom, the good size lounge area, the garden area and the fact that the flat was very warm. I am, therefore, reluctant to mention any negatives. However, it is important to be truthful when giving feedback. The bedroom area was very small and claustrophobic, with no room for a dressing table and without an accessible electrical socket, making it very difficult for hair drying etc. On a personal note, it was a problem for me, as I have a medical condition which means I have to plug in a machine at night while I sleep. I had to run an extension lead from the living room, which could have been a trip hazard in the middle of the night. The bed was hard and uncomfortable for me, although my partner found it ok, and I do realise a soft or hard mattress is very much a personal choice. Because the flat is built in a converted garage, it was dark with not much natural light coming through, and there was a lot of traffic noise because of the proximity to the main road. As mentioned earlier, there were many very good things about the flat, and the owners left us some mince pies and chocolate biscuits, along with tea/coffee etc., which was a nice touch, and made us feel welcome. The flat is very centrally located, and the fact that it is dog friendly is a big positive too.
