We were very disappointed in several aspects of this apartment.
- Plumbing very poor, with bathroom sinks that took a long time to drain and generally needed replacing
- Shower room had mould all over the wall
-Second bathroom hand shower could not be used as water sprayed everywhere.
-Second bathroom had damp and mould all over the wall behind the door.
-Bathrooms needed a good clean.
-Paint and walls in desperate need of repair as rising damp had visibly taken over
-Not enough seating in the lounge area
-Every time you used the toaster the safety switch went off needing to be reset
-Apartment was freezing when we arrived it took 48 hours to warm running 24 hours a day at 30 degrees on thermostat. The outside weather was 2 degrees a slightly warm apartment on arrival would have been nice.
-No toilet paper supplied, had to immediately run out to buy some.
-Had trouble with the internet which required a phone call as information in folder incorrect.
-Generally kitchen and bathroom floors needed a good clean as did the dining table.
