    “Although The Penhouse has been refurbished, it needs a thorough deep clean.”

    All skirting boards through the apartment had a layer of dust on them. Plug sockets were dirty and had a layer of dust on them in most rooms, particularly in the hall behind the small table. The doors are all original but don't close unless force is used. The wardrobe doors in the main bedroom do not close easily. ...

    All skirting boards through the apartment had a layer of dust on them. Plug sockets were dirty and had a layer of dust on them in most rooms, particularly in the hall behind the small table. The doors are all original but don't close unless force is used. The wardrobe doors in the main bedroom do not close easily. The entrance lobby and stairs, even though a 'common area' did not make a good first impression as the floors and stairs need a good hoover. Attention to all details is important when staying in an up-market and expensive to rent apartment. Such a shame that the cleanliness lets down this fabulous apartment.

Move up the stairs to the second floor to be met by the light and airy open-plan living space, a wonderful social spot where the whole group can gather for some quality family time; whether it's around the dining table with a tasty homemade meal prepared in the amply-equipped kitchen, or relaxing on the plush sofas before the Smart TV, it makes for the perfect contemporary spot at any time of day.
