We are quite good travellers, having holidayed with a family around the world. After reading the rave reviews we were slightly disappointed with the Collingham apartments. We had difficulty with our booking and found the price ended up much higher than originally listed.
The full rate was very high for the star rating it has.
We were happy with the cleanliness, kitchen facilities and arrival info (thank you for the chocolate!) but saddened to find our apartment was down in the basement and extremely hot and stuffy. The windows did open, but then the hot water unit outside let gas in. We were advised for security reasons not to leave the windows open whilst we were out. There was only one key to the old fashioned lock, which had to be left at reception when leaving the apartment. It was a surprise for our older children who had to wake us up to let them in late at night.
Take note regarding wifi...they do charge, but if you're in the basement it doesn't work properly.
Overall, Collingham would have been a good pick for a family if the price had reflected the rating a little more accurately. Thank you to the smiley friendly gent at reception your cheer was much appreciated :)
