“Excellent holiday apartment”
Reviewed October 6, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This apartment is everything I need and being disabled my needs are complex. It is unusual to find such an apartment that suits my needs, is in a great location and has all the services I need. It is spacious enough for me to get around with my extra wide walker so should prove no problem to a wheelchair user. The one lift that was working is big and clean. The private secure car park was clean and well lit. The spaces are narrow. (not suitable for a SOLO wheelchair user). The apartment is well equipped, clean and modern. The showers are excellent. The only downside was that all the furniture and beds are lower than usual. We are looking to book again twice next year and will take our own blocks to raise the bed and sofa. Apartment already recommended to friends and family.

“Great Sunsets”

We have been travelling to this part of the world for over 30 years as my wife has family in the area and have seen many changes.
The regeneration of the harbour side has transformed this part of the town.
We have stayed in all kinds of accommodation over the years but the apartment in Pears House is by far the best location in the area.
If the weather is kind to you sitting on the balcony looking out across the harbour is a joy, the sunsets are amazing you could easily imagine you were in a Mediterranean resort.
The apartment is spacious, clean and well appointed, it is located within walking distance of everything in the town.
The railway station is a 5 minute walk away giving you access to St Bees a small village to the South with the best beach in the area.
Further South is Ravenglass where you can catch a train on the narrow gauge railway to the Eskdale Valley.
In the other direction you can catch a train to Workington where you will find many more shops than in Whitehaven.
Picking up the key to the apartment was very straight forward and everything was as advertised, there was a good WiFi signal which was a priority for my children.
We will be sure to stay here again when visiting the area.

“Wonderful apartment with wonderful views”
Reviewed July 15, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Getting the keys was not a problem just as described, easy. Parking in the underground car park is a little tight but you get used to it. Everywhere is clean, car park/entrance to apartments/outside car parking area/bin storage. The lifts were spotless & efficient. The car park main gates open from the car by pressing the remote, they open slowly so you don't have to keep pressing it. The fob you press onto the pad at the pedestrian gate no issues. The apartment was well maintained, clean & very welcoming. The views are amazing & gave us hours of enjoyment. Bedrooms adequate, not big but had everything in them (except a mirror near the plugs for hair-drier etc). Tip, shut the bedroom windows at night or the seagulls will wake you up at stupid o'clock. The showers will blow your heads off, wonderful. Everything you will need is catered for in the kitchen & there is a cupboard with washer & dryer in. Enjoy, we did!

Very comfortable apartment, well appointed in a great location. Easy walking distance of supermarket and local businesses. Thoughtful additions - pantry items, books, CDs etc. Loved our stay - thanks!

“Absolutely brilliant”
Reviewed April 22, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

An excellent apartment with stunning harbour side views, this 2 bed, 2 bathroom apartment was spotlessly clean, very well appointed, washing machine, tumble dryer and dishwasher making self catering so easy.
I couldn't fault it, picking up the keys was straight forward and having secure underground parking an added bonus.
The Marina area was traffic free and there was always something to watch with the boats coming and going.
Had a great meal at The Waterfront restaurant.
Easy access to the Western Lakes, we had a lovely ride through the Honister Pass, a boat trip around Lake Derwent and it probably helped that the weather was stunning for April.

“The Perfect Seascape Right On Your Balcony...”
Reviewed April 12, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

person found this review helpful

Truly stunning panoramic view of the harbour and sea, complete with sliding balcony doors to let the melodic chimes of the boats outside soothe away any stresses of the past week, while you sip a much deserved glass of wine and contemplate what resilience the local fishermen must have to brave the choppy waters to find their catch.
The apartment is incredibly spacious, light and warm. Just what we needed for a short weekend break!
