The apartment is beautiful and literally in the centre of town. It was spotlessly clean and had everything you need and much more. All mod cons are included (washing machine, dish washer, freezer and smart uHD TV) and beautiful fully opening doors and a small balcony to enjoy the weather. The flat is a sun trap and it streams through all day. Martin really looks after you my trip was delayed due a strike but this wasn't an issue, he met me as promised and showed me around as well some great tips for eating out. There are lots of bars (the celt just opposite is friendly) and restaurants around and shops to fill the fridge with. The internet is speedy and easily accessiable. I have no hesitation recommending this place I'll be back. The only downside is the steps which I found ok but if you had mobility issues could be an issue. I'll be back thanks Andrea a joy to stay in your beautiful home, this was my first stay with Homeaway and if this is the standard I'll be using it again and again.

Very close to the rear entrance to the castle and to the airport bus stop. Lovely river and country walks close by and easy to get into the new city over the bridge. Some shops and restaurants close by although only open Fri and Sat out of season. Property was clean and spacious with lots of extra bedding and towels if needed. The small courtyard at the rear with table and chairs was lovely for reading and coffee when the sun shone. Everything that we needed was there. Excellent property.
