40 Marinus revisited

5 of 5
We are once again staying in this lovely apartment where we have stayed many times previously. We are delighted to find that the apartment’s furnishings have been recently upgraded. Brand-new mattresses and bedding have been provided in both bedrooms - the main bedroom now has zip-and-link beds that can be arranged as a large king-size bed or two single beds – offering additional comfort. The apartment is quiet, bright and cheerful, spotlessly clean and very easy to maintain. The view over the Solent and the marina from the very comfortable lounge area offers an ever-changing and enjoyable vista. The immaculate open-plan kitchen is very well equipped with all you could need. As always, knowing that Graham is immediately available to resolve any issues that may arise is an added bonus! We shall certainly be staying here again and would not hesitate to recommend this apartment to others.
