9 of us stayed here over the Easter hols. Lovely apartment with plenty of space, equipment & towels. The kids loved the use of the pool which they had to themselves most of the time. Dominoes and Co-op at the end of the road was handy and only 5mins walk from Haymarket Station. Would definitely recommend

This was the perfect stay for our group!

Travelling for a long weekend with 9 adults and 3 children (aged 4, aged 2, aged 7months).

The location was ideal whether we were walking or taking a cab after a long day. Walking to the main shopping street took about 35minutes and taking a cab about 5/8 minutes.

The apartment was EXTREMELY clean and we even got the basics ready for our arrival such as bread, juice, tea. Attention to detail was brilliant. Even down to providing washing up liquid and washing machine fabric softner and powder! I normally pack all these essentials but it was nice that it was already there!

The rooms were extremely spacious - we had myself, my husband and two travel cots in one room and still had plenty of space to move around.

The apartment was very secure - even getting in the pool required keys! Perfect when you have kids. The pool itself was lovely and warm and both times we went in, we had it to ourselves which was brilliant. There was showering and changing facilities by the pool which was handy too.

Beverley was so good with contacting and answering any questions before hand which made me feel more at ease.

The ONLY thing we found as a negative was the washing machine and dryer were both loud and the dryer didnt work properly. However there was a long clothes rack so we put them on there instead. On the grand scale of things it was minor but for future travellers, I would recommend either putting them on when you are out for the day or avoid washing a full load of clothes!

We had a brilliant time and would recommend this place to anyone!!!

My friends and I stayed at this apartment this weekend. The apartment was fantastic, large and very clean and comfortable. It was well equipped and only a short walk to the city. I cannot recommend this highly enough.

Arrived here to stay for 3 nights Aug 2015. Basically could not believe how amazing the place was. It was like Fort Knox with keys and coded doors which is brilliant it was so safe and secure.. the lobby, stairs, corridors and rooftop terrace were all in excellent condition, so clean!
the apartment itself was so good.. CLEAN, FRESH, WARM. EVERYTHING YOU NEED!
Milk, bread, butter, teabags, orange juice... So welcoming!

Very close to city centre! Great quiet area. Dominos was on the corner! We ate pizza for dinner every evening even though we had everything in the kitchen we would have needed for a banquet. ALL CUTLERY ETC WAS PRISTINE!

FRIDGE/FREEZER/WASHING MACHINE/DISHWASHER/DRYER .... all really good quality and in perfect working order!
UNLIKE MOST self catering accommodation there WAS cleaning equipment/washing powder/dish washer tablets etc...

WIFI ACTUALLY WORKED!!!! We had 8 phones running off the wifi which was brilliant !!
All beds were super comfy, so fresh and clean..

ALL in all the place was absolutely fab I would LOVE to go back again....

BEVERLEY: Was amazing during the whole booking process ...
AUDREY: Is so so nice....!! So welcoming and kind... SHE KEEPS EVERWHERE SPOTLESS .. fair play to her she does her job exceptionally well...

Oh and there was IPOD DOCKING STATIONS in all the bedrooms! Like seriously THAT is what you call luxury.. I didn't want to go home!

The pool etc was fabulous!!!

I could write about it all day long!

Bottom line: TOP QUALITY!

“Not as expected”
Reviewed 31 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Not the cleanest of places, looking very tired, needs a good clean/ freshening up. Certainly not what we were expecting. Be prepared for a long wait for your bond back.
