“Very nice apartment and easy access to town”
Reviewed 11 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Brilliant location with a minutes walk into town and just a few minutes further to the sea front and the Old Course. Lovely scenic footpath to the front which leads either to town or down a nice woodland path with a children's play area and football pitch. The garden is very nice and ideal for sitting on the patio area on a nice evening.
The accommodation is nice inside and warms up nicely if needed. Having a dishwasher and washer/dryer is very useful! I would say though that the kitchen really could do with a sweeping brush or brush and dust pan.
The single room is nice but a little tight and the lack of a wardrobe means you need to use the drying room joined on to the bedroom to hang your clothes. Fine in the summer but if it was during colder weather, it wouldn't be much use. All the other rooms are fine and have everything you need although the front bedroom can be a bit noisy when the boiler is running in there.
One word of caution which could be addressed by the manager of the property for future reference, is the student parties next door. It was freshers week and during 2 nights of the week, the next door apartment hosted a very loud party with lots of students present. Fortunately, it ended not long after midnight so can't complain too much but it was certainly enough to keep us awake for a while.
We had to park in the nearby pay and display car park (we have a disabled badge so park for free) as all the spaces on the road to the rear of the property were constantly taken. This was a pain for loading and unloading the car. Perhaps some signage/road markings and enforcement could improve things on this front.
Overall, very happy with the property and would certainly recommend it.

We are delighted to hear that you had a lovely holiday and that you enjoyed the apartment. We have noted your comments regarding the lack of wardrobe in the single bedroom and we are looking into how we can find an alternative for future guests use. There is a brush and dust pan in the hall cupboard for guests use and I will move this to the kitchen as perhaps it will be more noticeable there. I apologise for the noise you encountered and we have reported this to the relevant letting agent. As you mentioned it was freshers week during your stay and hopefully this was a one off as we have not had this problem before but we will be monitoring the situation. Regarding parking there is free on street parking on Argyle Street and although it tends to be busy during working hours it is not normally a problem out with these times. We thank you again for your feedback as we are strongly committed to providing the best services and amenities for our guests, therefore we do welcome all comments that will help us accomplish this."

“Brilliant apartment - great location etc”
Reviewed 8 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Rented through Fife Cottages for a week, who were extremely helpful when we managed to lock ourselves out twice! This is a spacious well-furbished clean apartment, with dishwasher and washing machine. The enclosed garden was fantastic for our two small dogs. The apartment is within walking distance of the town, the beach, the golf course. Couldn't fault it. Will be back!
