    The booking process was easy and fast and the owner was amazing when I mixed up a booking (my fault entirely) in that he extended our stay by two days at no charge. Reserve staff were really nice to deal with when I had a couple of problems early on.


    Apartment needs a deep clean throughout. Mattress most uncomfortable of our 10 week stay. Kitchen gear is mismatched and chipped, cracked and frying pan is buckled. Kitchen cupboard door is broken. Washing machine doesn't work past the message "service needed". Price and location (once you're past the stairwell) is good, but more explanation on how things (washing machine, TV, wifi, parking etc.) is needed. I would not stay again and would not recommend as it looks nothing like the pictures used to sell it..

    The service was inadequate. The flat manager was unavailable and the office staff knocksed off at 5 pm leaving me and my family in trouble


    Dirty and rundown. Two proper beds were missing as blown-up beds cannot be considered comfortable. The shower was not working. Difficult to find any plus in the apartment as a whole

    Our response

    Thank you for your feedback. I'm sorry to hear that you were disappointed during your stay, however your concerns were dealt with immediately by the property manager, and you were compensated one free night's accommodation, a solution that you were very happy with at the time.

    If you wish to discuss this further, please do not hesitate to contact me.

    Fast and informative responses, useful reminders and acknowledgements, would use again.


    Bad decorative order; very shabby entrance hall and stairs; tiny, poorly equipped kitchen; uncomfortable beds; grubby bathroom; would never use again; very disappointed.
