Stayed at Vizion complex in central Milton keynes in 3 bedroom apartment for several weeks. Staff at Cotels were very pleasant and helpful with our numerous minor issues, but the apartment itself had some really annoying features.
First was the vertical blinds which do a terrible job of blocking windows or providing privacy. In summer time sun comes up at 4:30 am and this east facing apartments bedrooms would be in full sun by about 4:45. Lack of block out blinds means rooms heat up very quickly and become unbearable by mid afternoon. Cotels were unable to rectify as the 'owner' did not want to spend the money to replace blinds.We suffered with terrible sleep for our entire stay.
Second was the combination washer dryer which did not come with a manual ( found one on internet eventually ) that would take at least 3 hours to do one single load. For family of 5 this meant we felt like we were continually doing washing !
Mattress on main bed was way beyond its use date and contributed to our terrible sleep.Did not bother reporting as seemed like a waste after response to problems with blinds.
Rooms were good size with generous amount of storage, showers were reasonable, pressure and temperature a bit variable but overall not bad. En-suite shower was fairly small and awkward to use.
Security in complex was very good as was proximity to local shops and restaurants. TV in main living area was very good although a lack of any additional channels on SKY was disappointing. Included WIFI was nice & quick and never gave us any issues. Kitchen is well equipped and all appliances (apart from washer/dryer) worked well for our entire stay.
TV in the bedroom was not the wall mounted LCD shown in pictures but a 1990's vintage CRT with an external freeview box. Used it once, found picture and sound were lousy and we never turned it on again.
