The location is good close to Brighton waterfront and close to a shopping mall. However the apartment was poor quality and, in my opinion, a rip-off that should not be offered as a holiday rental in it's present condition. On the first morning we were there, we found the shower drain was blocked and I had to use a plunger (that I found at the premises) to clear it. The back-pressure from the plunger action caused the blockage (mainly hair) to finally reguritate into the shower tray with some evidence of raw sewage. This was not a pleasant experience to have to clean this up on our first morning. Then we found that we could not get out of the apartment. The locks on the only exit door were jammed and we couldn't open the door. The problem was caused by the door coming off the hinges and jamming in the door frame. It took us 15 minutes to get the door open. I had to use both hands to push the door up into the frame while my wife used the keys to get it unlocked. It would not have been possible to exit the property in a hurry in an emergency situation. The next problem we found was water dripping through the ceiling from the flat upstairs. By the look of the ceiling, it had been suffering water damage for quite some time and the carpet underneath was damp and smelled damp. The crockery in the cupboard wasn't clean either. My wife found lipstick marks on a couple of cups, so she felt she needed to wash everything before we used it. City Pad handle the rental side of the business (I don't know if they actually own it) and they contract a property management company, Prestige, to do the cleaning and maintenance. Prestige must have know about the problems with the apartment before we arrived. The apartment could do with a refurbishment - fix the ceiling, fix the cracks in the walls, replace the carpets and give the walls and windows a fresh coat of paint. We left a day early because we couldn't stand it anymore.
