“OK but needs a few tweaks”
Reviewed 8 November 2009

Steve was very friendly and gave good instructions regarding finding the keys so we had high hopes that we had made a good choice for our overnight stop between Edinburgh and the Midlands. Unfortunately, although first impressions were OK, on closer inspection this was not the case.
There were items of washing-up on the draining board, presumably left by the last guests because there was no tea towel provided so we had to do the same. The fridge contained an opened carton of milk, some scotch eggs and a bottle of brown sauce. There was a frozen lasagne in the freezer and a part-used packet of breakfast cereal.
There was an odd assortment of mugs -mostly old, chipped, tea-stained and in need of a good wash. Out of the 6 plates in the apartment, no two were the same and there was a rather dirty pair of oven gloves hanging next to an oven that looked like it hadn't had a clean for many months.
Looking around, the bed linen appeared to have been laundered, but there were some black marks here and there. The carpet had some odd stains too.The place had a feel that someone was living there and had been asked to move out for the night and we were worred that they might turn up at any time!
We were very disapponted as this was the last night of our holiday and we had spent the previous week staying in apartments in Scotland, which had been immaculate and we had paid a similar price so had expected a similar standard.
To be fair, the general decor was fine and it wouldn't take too much effort to raise the standard here - just the purchase of a new set of crockery and bed linen followed by an in-depth clean between guests would work wonders. Unfortunately we couldn't recommend it to a friend as it stands.

Reviewed 28 December 2008

A very well equiped apartment which provides value for money.

Parking was plentiful. Check in was difficult but was sorted after a few phone calls.

However we did have two problems.

The main bedroom only had light vertical blinds that did not keep out the light from the car park, making the room very bright and difficult to sleep. The apartment above us was occupied by a very heavy footed person who made the ceiling shake every time they walked about. This was so loud that it kept everyone awake. This would suggest that the sound retardent qualities of the building leaves a lot to be desired.
