“Disappointed ”
Reviewed 28 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

No hot water in morning. Tv sound not working. VERY simple breakfast included. Detergent powder still on washed plates. Looks very good value, but cleaning charge added which negates this.

Thanks again for letting us know promptly about these issues - TV sound now appears OK; plumber has reset the safety trip on the water heater. We agree 100% about the way the Booking.com website does not make the cleaning charge clear from the outset. Breakfast normally includes orange juice, milk, croissants, butter, preserves and a bottle of wine - apologies if there was something missing. Plates appeared to have been returned to cupboards by previous guests with dishwasher powder on them: sorry about that, but to be honest we do not always take everything out of the cupboards before every stay - perhaps we should!

“Very comfortable apartment in great location”

This apartment has everything you might need (including a whirlpool bath) and is very comfortable. As someone who likes to self-cater I found the kitchen particularly well equipped - there are 3 ways to make coffee! The starter supplies of milk, orange juice plus a bottle of wine and chocolates is a very nice touch.
Fantastic location too - just a short stroll up to the Cathedral and Castle.
Great stay - hope to come back.

“Would highly recommend this place.”

This is a 5 star apartment with all the amenities you will require. We were met by the owner who showed us around to ensure we knew where everything was and how to use them. There is a whirlpool bath with radio and special lighting. There is also a quality shower off the main bedroom. The main double bed is very comfortable we would nevertheless change the mattress on the single bed as it’s not the quality of the double. You are close to the town, attractions and restaurants. The underground parking is a bonus. Overall we would highly recommend this place.

Thanks for your great review and for the advice on the mattress - I've never slept in that bed, will organise a replacement!

“Excellent accommodation in city centre”
Reviewed 5 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

The appt was as shown - excellent facilities to make it an enjoyable and comfortable stay. Very near to the centre to see local attractions and also easy for several walks around the area. The owner was very helpful on arrival and also welcome goodies had also been left which was a nice touch. Despite being near to a main street and some bars we were not troubled by traffic or any other noise during our stay. Overall good value for money. I have already recommended the property to friends.

A fantastic apartment with an excellent location. It is all the small finishing touches that really make the difference for this apartment that turns it from simply a place to stay to one that really feels special.
