"Very comfortable, spacious, very well equipped apartment. Had everything we needed and more."

Arrived to a warm welcome, guided around the apartment and shown where everything was. Despite being in the basement of a tenement (shared access via stairs) the apartment is suprisingly bright and airy. The twin bedded and bunk bed rooms look out to a shared garden on the same level at the rear as does the lounge / diner. There is a bathroom, shower room and kitchen that are to the inside of the apartment without windows but some natural light to kitchen via glass bricks between it and dining area. Double and King sized bedrooms to the front are well lit by windows to large gratings at ground level. There is also a small utility / laundry room with washing machine and condensing tumble dryer. The apartment was nicely decorated and very clean throughout and was very well equipped with everything we needed and lots more. Located about 15 minutes downhill walk from Princes St. there seemed to be plenty of buses from the end of the street but we never needed them. About 5 minutes walk to local restaurants and pubs, and 5 minutes the other way to a supermarket, local shop very handy at the end of the street. We really enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to recommend the apartment,

Thank you for a lovely review, we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and we do hope you will come back again.
