Nice enough - Would go back again
Was a good place to stay. Very close to town centre/ cafes etc. Warm and clean enough. Kitchen could perhaps be a bit more stocked and organised (cutlery drawer is a bit mis matched and cluttered). There was a bit of a cooking smell in the kitchen/living area but nothing drastic. Could not find any baking trays to put stuff on in oven. Overall a good place to stay. Pool etc are about a mile away so that should be made clearer when booking.

Generally good but a couples do issues
The owner spend far too long showing us around the apartment and basically complained to us about all the problems previous guests had caused. Although the apartment was warm, clean and well equipped the decoration was dated and tired and quality of fixtures basic. However, the shower was excellent. There was also a very unpleasant smell in the apartment - definitely not 4 star accommodation.

I am sorry you were not happy staying here. You stayed in apartment no 3 for one night last weekend, and paid £110, for a two bedroom apartment, one double and one twin, for 4 people, with a large lounge with open plan dining area and fully equipped kitchen, with cooker, microwave, dishwasher, fridge, etc, you were also supplied with washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets, tea towel and dish cloth, and tea and coffee making facilities, you had free use of leisure center , with swimming pool, etc. bath and hand towels also supplied, TV and DVD player. Free Wi-Fi. This apartment was refurbished last year Our bed linen is Bedeck. The photos on the web site would have showed you exactly what the apartment looked like, can't understand why you booked if you did not like them?. The guests who were in the apartment before you had cooked some very smelly fish and I had an awful job to get rid of the smell, although I had scrubbed the kitchen and left all the windows and doors open all morning, plus spraying the apartment with fabreze, the smell was still slightly there when you checked in as I had allowed you to check in at lunch time instead of 4 pm our normal check in time,I had to close the windows early. I have no control over what kind of food guests cook here. This early check in allowed you to cook lunch and dinner here saving you a lot of money having to eat in restaurants. I did say you had to give the front door an extra push before locking as a previous guest had strained the door by not listening to my instructions of pushing up the handle before turning the key, hardly complaining of other guests? a look in our guest book would show where hundreds of previous guests had left comment's saying how much they had enjoyed staying here. A one night stay on this night at the local Y.H.A for a room with two sets of bunk beds, shared bathroom and no towels supplied, would have cost you £119 and this is a non profit making organisation. I think perhaps your expectations are a little high.

A wonderful place to stay
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this apartment and found it to be spotlessly clean and cosy. The rooms are tastefully furnished and well-equipped. The owner was extremely helpful both before our arrival and during our stay.
We could not have wished for a more prefect location in which to enjoy the pleasures of Windermere.

Host can improve on customer service (Leave guests to be on arrival with quick induction and not so strict on arrival time).

I am sorry you were not happy staying here, but for little more than you would pay, per person for a bed in a mixed sex dormitory in a backpackers hostel, we give our guests an incredible amount of facilities, with two bedrooms and two bathrooms one with bath and shower. a full kitchen including dishwasher, and we even supply dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid dishcloth, tea-towel etc. Lounge with 3 piece leather suite Sky TV and DVD player. We also supply towels and give our guests free use of leisure center, with indoor pool, Parking and much more. I cannot win when it comes to explaining to guests how to use all those facilities, when I do guests like you, will complain, and if I leave guests to figure out how everything works on their own, they will complain. We are very flexible with check in time, and don't mind what time guests arrive as long as it is after 4 PM, (if guests arrive before then, if they come by car they are welcome to park their car and if they come by train they are welcome to leave their luggage, and if the apartment is ready they can book in early) all we ask is for guests to let us know what time they will arrive. For accommodation of the standard we offer for the £220 for two nights that you paid for 4 people, in August. We welcome constructive criticism, but in your case we feel it is neither fair nor warranted
