Wendy was very helpful & contacted us a few days into our stay to make sure we were enjoying ourselves. The apartment is a very conveniently located; only taking a few minutes to walk into town & there is a lovely riverside restaurant/bar downstairs which is open all day and is a wonderful place to watch the sunset. We would certainly consider staying here again.

Make sure you visit the Gallery cafe. The only issue we experienced was the included wi-if. It didn't really work. However, that is not a huge issue when you have so much to see and do. Thank you To,our hosts.
