Exceptionally easy to book our accommodation on line. They wanted lots of information about all members of our party. I understand this as they are in the city centre and protecting their property. Emails were responded to promptly and the meet & greet service worked well. Accurate description of the apartment.

Product Feefo rating: single plus

The apartment was slightly tired and had obviously had crockery broken by previous occupants as there were only, for example, 4 mugs. However the position was excellent and, if you can manage 3 big flights of stairs, it’s well worth the climb. Great value for money.

A very comfortable flat and, of course, extremely well located. I am a returning customer which tells you all you need to know really. The stairs are a bit of a trial but there's nothing the letting agents can do about that. A few more towels would have been appreciated. I'll be back, hopefully on a lower floor.

My companion moaned about lack of big bathroom towels otherwise I would have given 5 stars.
