The flat itself is a very good size, comfortable and with a lovely balcony. Its a great location within easy walking distance to Poole town centre and close enough to major attractions.
The biggest problem is the continual worry over getting the white carpet/furniture dirty. You get a lot of warnings about taking your shoes off every time you go in and are asked to take separate footware just to go out on the balcony.
