Not as advertised
First impressions were that it is a very clean flat. The bedrooms are very small and have no hanging space (drawers in one bedroom only) but beds were fairly comfortable, and kitchen very clean. However, I booked this flat because it advertised an open fire, with fuel and started kit included in the price. When we couldn't find anything to do with the fire we asked the manager. We got a reply to say that Sykes have been told to remove this from the website, this is not something they offer and we could buy our own fuel from the shop in the village. By the time we received this reply the shops were shut. There was a letter in the kitchen which said the fire must be cleaned out if it is used, and as there was nothing provided to do this (even the vacuum cleaner we found was over full already) we couldn't use it at all. The cleaning rules also applied to the oven - so we didn't cook here either since on a two night stay I didn't fancy cleaning the oven. The kitchen didn't bother us, but I would never have booked the flat if it hadn't advertised the fire, so we were very disappointed. There was a lot of noise coming from the people in the upstairs flat too. The location, though, was great.

Very smart, clean and tidy flat in a quiet area of town near the sea. Great base for discovering Northumberland.

23 Gordon Street is a great apartment, well equipped and ideally located a short walk from Amble town centre. Highly recommended.
