We stayed in the Atrium apartment and while the main space with the bed in is a lovely space, we couldn't help but feel ripped off for the price paid for the room. We were shown around the apartment (which is actually more of a bedsit) when we arrived to be told nonchalantly by the owner to "watch out for the woodlice as they fall through the ceiling" in the conservatory. sorry, what? I'm paying for a luxury apartment and you have a woodlice infestation you haven't bothered to fix. Every day we were there there were, sure enough, plenty of woodlice in the conservatory area every morning. Lovely.
The bathroom was tiny. You couldn't use the loo without pretty much having your knees in the sink, and the water pressure in the shower was very poor. We told the owner this who offered to replace the shower head as it was caked in limescale (which they seemed to somehow have not noticed before) but this never happened. The plates and oven tray in the kitchen had not been cleaned at all and were full of crumbs. You only get given one plate and bowl in the room per person, so expect to do a lot of washing up. The microwave was also broken and had not been checked - many small issues which should have been noticed but sadly were not.
Such a shame as the apartment is in a lovely building and is very well located and the owners were very pleasant, but it really is not worth the money being charged for it. Needs some attention.
