I was shocked and dismayed to find the flat full of owners personal effects food and toiletries, including dressing gown and coats hanging behind the bedroom door, all his toiletries in the bathroom and a fridge full of half used groceries. As a woman travelling alone sleeping in what was very obviously a mans bedroom was disconcerting to say the least. After a sleepless night I left, the owner did offer to clear the property but cleanliness is not the issue - it was the fact it is not a holiday rental - it is someone's very full and well used home and they just pop out while it is rented out. This is not at all clear from the advert.
Perfect location for us in Portishead marina as we needed something walking distance to my friend's house. The apartment is on the 3rd floor (no lift) and is the owner's own home so everything you could possibly want for a comfortable stay is provided including dishwasher, washing machine, ironing board/iron, satellite TV, high speed wifi and an allocated parking space. There is also an added advantage of 2 bathrooms. There are 4 terraces, nice views and the apartment is directly opposite a lovely pub which is great for drinking and not driving. There are many local supermarkets, restaurants, shops nearby and the high street is a short walk away.
