Thank you Hannah for writing a review of your stay.
I am sorry that the key to the block caused a problem, I will get a new one cut and replace it. I will also ask the maintenance man to look at the lock.
I am also sorry that you had an unfortunate encounter with Mike. He has a very abrupt manner and does like to monitor activity on the development. It costs nothing to be polite.
It was very sad to read that you had been declined by other holiday rentals because of Adam's autism, it shows a general lack of understanding of the condition.
I am so pleased you enjoyed our penthouse and found everything you needed for your stay. We have made every effort to make it a home from home. We love it there and are so happy that our guests do too.
I would be delighted if you returned some time with Adam or found time to come with your family.

We spent Easter at Gower View Apartment & thoroughly enjoyed it. The apartment has everything you could want, extremely comfortable beds & the showers were excellent. The views are stunning & we were lucky enough to see a beautiful sunset. Cooking was a pleasure as the kitchen was very well equipped & it was lovely to have everyone around. We ate out at Sosban ( the Sosban Fach menu) it was delicious & would return. A fantastic weekend was had by all & we'll be back!
