As we pulled up near the apartments we passed 3 men swigging cider from 2 litre bottles on the kerb! Having eventually found the key and parking we were faced with 8 flights of stairs to the apartment! No lifts! Whilst this did wonders for my fitness levels it was seriously hard work with 2 young children and a pram!
Once inside the apartment I was pleasantly surprised with the size and cleanliness ! However the facilities were basic!
There was no welcome pack or numbers or leaflets about local amenities which was disappointing ! The apartment itself was secure and felt safe however, the same cannot be said for the park across the road , which attracted many unsavory characters which we saw hanging around the coded doorway ! Very frightening and really unsettled our family! On day one we noticed a poster stuck to the wall on the communal stairwell which stated that residents must be extra vigilant about 'local unsavoury characters' who had gained access and a 'serious incident' had occurred! Again extremely unnerving for the whole family!
This apartment would be ideal for hen and stag parties as it is a 10 min walk up hill into the city however as a young family we were put off by the lack of communication/ information left in the apartment and by the before mentioned characters!
