Some positives, some negatives
Paid ?793 for 7 days and Eve's Attic had some positives but sadly more negatives. Positives; excellent location, right in the middle of Bowness, loads on your door step. Free parking, which is great for a weeks holiday. And easy to find, the post code takes you to the apartment car park and the apartment itself is easy to find when you arrive. Negatives; dirty apartment, mould on curtains and a half eaten pizza in the oven greeted us upon arrival! Shower is so poor it's unbelievable. You have a choice of two showers. The electric shower is either boiling or ice cold, there is no inbetween. And the feed off the bath taps is good for temperature but awkward for use - being short and happy to get water everywhere is the perfect combo. Finally the apartment space is average. Two couple visited; the beds aren?t that comfortable, the small double is against a wall, there was only one small bath towel per person and to use the dining table you need to cut off the living room. Disappointed overall but not a total nightmare, we managed and didn?t have massive reason to complain but our week away was made by the location, ours plans and the weather - the apartment was the drawback. No WiFi in 2021 is also a minus. Needs a little TLC and it could be fantastic.
