    Flat was adequate for our requirements ..good location ...clean and warm ....



    out of 10

    We have stayed her before. It's just what we need. I would have liked a rug for the floor but we have a dog so I understand why it doesn't. I love the deep bath. Location is spot on for us. I think a blind or net curtain for the bedroom would be good as people can see in.



    out of 10

    Our favourite place for a short break. We must have been here at least 6 times and it suits our needs. Only 2 of us and the dog but would be squashed with 4.



    out of 10

    The apartment was clean and tidy, however the cooker light didn’t come on which I thought was dangerous due to having a small child there as well. We weren’t sure if the cooker worked or not. The lamps shades in the bedroom were broken didn’t look great, and one of the lamps stopped working. Other than that the place is quite a good location, and cosy place to stay.



    out of 10

    Love it here. A bit cramped if 4 but ideal for 2. This makes it a little more expensive but we like it.



    out of 10

    Good value for money. Owner could update the curtains, pillows etc.



    out of 10

    Beautiful location and the flat was in a good location to be able to walk into town for the activities there. Decor was ok . Would book this again if staying in the region.
