The fellow who met us at the apartment was pleasant and helpful. We found the apartment itself dingy and a little dirty. Though what I most disliked was your booking system. I felt that key information, like a 200.00 deposit, was not presented up front - but was sprung on me after I had paid for the booking.

Our response

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We are disappointed to hear that the cleanliness of the apartment did not meet your expectations. I cannot find any communication from yourself regarding the cleanliness of the apartment and we would have happily remedied any issues brought up.
In terms of the booking system, we cannot allow key information to be displayed upfront because of security reasons. This would pose not only a safety issue for you, but for future guests, as it would mean that anyone could access the key and therefore access the apartment. Key information is only made available when full payment is received for the safety of our guests and other tenants in the apartment building.
The £200.00 damage deposit is stated prior to booking and can also be found in the terns and conditions. It is not uncommon to be asked for this when renting an apartment, due to the potential damage that could occur. I note that your damage deposit was refunded in full after departure.
Despite this, we hope

I didn't read the small print to discover the apartment was on the third floor, 69 steps in total, which I found difficult with painful knees. The front door and hall could badly do with a lick of paint. The stair case was filthy, it could really do with a good sweep and wash. There were buckets and mops on the staircase that could be used. However, the apartment when reached was spotlessly clean. the sitting room could do with a new carpet and a comfortable couch.


The location was very good and we actually saw the queen on 2 occasions as we went through the local park. Every thing was in good condition, an excellent full cooker, which is rare in short term lettings, lovely ware & mugs bright and clean. It could do with a comfortable couch and a new carpet in the sitting room. Excellent supply of hot water, we were entertained with the bagpipes every morning from the palace recitals...bedrooms and bathroom spotless. Representative was a nice chirpy lady. Only fault was the 61 steps to the apartments and the dirty stairs. A very nice quite area
