Excellent position but disappointing apartment
On arrival all was good we found we had been left a lovely starter of bread, milk, eggs, butter, juice and a bottle of Prosecco. Initially this apartment looked lovely, kitchen area, bedding and towels clean.Unfortunately on closer inspection the pillows were absolutely disgusting and the shower filthy, the grout and shower hose were covered in disgusting black mould, which my wife had to clean before use. Also very dusty and nothing had been moved to clean, several spiders webs showing under couches and furniture and several wires were lying about attached to extensions. Although this is advertised for 4 there is no way 4 people could stay here comfortably and only 2 bath towels provided, as there is no w/machine we had to use a local laundrette. Only 2 of us and I had to leave my suitcase in the living room as there was no room in the bedroom. The wardrobe was very damp and musty and had black mould on the wall, it was full with spare quilt, pillows, ironing board, iron and vacuum. The windows in the living area were painted shut so if we wanted fresh air we had to leave the door open, not great as road was very busy. Also one reason we booked here was the advertised garden but it was unusable as it was unkempt and the furniture very old and filthy. This property could be great but requires a deep clean and re-painted and the garden lanscaped.

Fab place to stay in an excellent location. Very comfy and homely with everything we needed and more. We would definitely stay again.
