I stayed in this flat for about 10 days in May 2013 and I felt at home very shortly after arriving. The flat has absolutely every thing you can wish for and even a month later, I still cannot fault it. From the location, to the kind gestures from Lynne, the amazing bed, the decoration, the storage space, the appliances... everything was just perfect! Couldn't recommend it more!

I rented the apartment for two weeks in late April to provide a quiet setting for semester end studies for my uni student daughter. I tagged along and was able to successfully telecommute back to my... more

I was so looking forward to staying at this apartment and it certainly lived up to, and exceeded, my expectations.
The booking process was simple and the owner, Lynne, was very thorough with the information provided at all stages of the process.
Despite the apartment's location in a street full of restaurants, pubs etc I was never bothered by any noise from these establishments.
The kitchen is equipped with all manner of useful items, ranging from cling film, aluminium foil, air-tight containers, tea, coffee, sugar, some basic herbs, spices and condiments etc, ample cooking utensils, crockery and cutlery. Instructions are provided for everything from the heaters to the washing machine, as is a range of tourist information.
As well as lots of pubs/restaurants in the area, there are also a number of supermarkets close by if you want to cook your own meals.
Travelling with heavy, bulky, luggage I was initially concerned about the width/steepness of the staircases to access this second floor apartment however I need not have worried- the staircases are surprisingly wide and provide better access than others I have encountered.
Would I stay here again? Most definitely!!
