It didn’t feel like a holiday cottage; it really felt like home. The house has recently been renovated (as eco-friendly as possible), and it’s uncluttered, comfortable and calm – a really easy place to be. The kitchen has everything you need to cook for yourself, which is handy in Quedlinburg where eating out can be expensive and you can find your holiday costs quickly mounting up. There’s a practical walk-in shower, great beds, and quality bedding and towels on tap. Windows flood the upper two floors with light, while also keeping sound out, so that although the cottage stands beside a church, you’re not disturbed by the chiming of bells. The owner is welcoming, friendly, and on hand to help if you need it. We had a wonderful time here and wouldn’t hesitate to go back. Thanks!

The apartment is clean and well fitted out with all that you would require, including towels and sheets. The owners are very helpful and welcoming. Things to note. The apartment is on the first floor with stair access from a common lobby that will provide access to 3 further apartments in the future. With the windows open there is some street noise from the cobbles but all goes very quite after 11pm. Quedlinburg is a very special place with loads to do and see. So many timber buildings with loads of real charm. The public transport is excellent with the train station only 5 minutes away. The Harz tour card is excellent value. The town brewery is a great place for a meal and a beer. We highly recommend this apartment and Quedlinburg and look forward to returning.
