  • "Rusty metal fence, unfinished painting of the front of the house, when opening the front door for the first time we where hit by the bad musty smell, why did the owner or cleaner not make sure that fresh air was allowed to flow through the house on the morning of our arrival at least."

    frayed carpets in almost every room. microwave wet inside. first bedroom no main light. tv area no main light. looks like the apartment had not been checked to see if all was okay.

  • "I had lots of issues."

    .The guttering was leaking when it rained making a noise on the glass back door..Kept my dog and husband awake..at night..Not every thing was clean to start of with such as house bin.Dish drainer..No slip mat for shower, bath was slippery..It was advertised as a garden apartment for a family.That wasn’t true it’s a basement apartment down metal steps..Not suitable really for anyone with arthritis problems…Not really ideal for a family..Very damp outside..

  • "I was generally happy with the stay, it was in a good location as advertised."

    I have only a few comments and suggestions really. I think the parking situation locally should be made clearer. Perhaps not everyone will arrive in a vehicle, but I suspect most will. It would be a good idea to make people aware of the inevitable additional cost of parking a vehicle on the street before they book. Since there is no free overnight parking anywhere close and guest passes are issued strictly to the operator of the property. I understood before I entered the property that is was not a luxury apartment, however, a few small items felt a little lacking regardless. There were very few standard drinking glasses in the kitchen cupboards. I believe there was a single pint glass and a single other drinking glass for an apartment that sleeps four. The inside of the cupboards could have done with a bit of a wipe down with a fair few brown mug ring stains and general grime on them building up, as could one or two of the other cupboards. I don't think there was a sieve, or I couldn't find one. Perhaps a quick review of basic utensil inventory would be useful right now. Another issue was the bathroom door, which has frosted glass. Unfortunately, if you happen to be in the bathroom with the light on, it is rather easy for anyone to see exactly what is happening inside the bathroom when walking past down the corridor. I had to hang a towel over the door to improve the privacy situation. It could easily be solved by a solid door or even just fitting a blind inside. My final note was the Wifi. The range is extremely poor. You could not get a good signal if you moved more than 3-4 metres away from the living area. It is very poor in the kitchen, the nearest bedroom and non existent in the furthest one. I think the issue is that the router is probably locked inside a cupboard opposite the bathroom. This is to stop anyone messing with it perhaps, but this isn't a usual situation in most properties I have stayed in. Being inside that solid cupboard must heavily restrict the signal's range and impacts the speed as you move away. I was overall fairly satisfied with my stay and felt that these minor issues could be easily sorted and future guests would have an improved stay. Thanks for your hospitality.

  • "The sitting room is far to small and kitchen very basically equipped"

  • "The apartment was quite disappointing: a number of things needed fixing (missing light bulbs, broken blind in the bathroom) and the kitchen wasn’t very well equipped or clean."

    Generally felt very damp and run-down. The location is the main selling point!
