We were very comfortable and this apartment had everything we needed, after a long drive from Newcastle we were able to make a hot drink as soon as we got there. There was loads of space and it was very clean and homely our only problem was the toilet didn't flush properly. We had a lovely stay and would definately use this apartment again. I would highly recommend this accommodation . Thank you so much for the hospitality.

No street parking between 2pm and 6 pm - however unrestricted parking available at the top of the road or next street. Train line at rear of house - did disturb early morning lie-in a bit. On the plus side - bus stop about 60 metres away with frequent (every 20 minutes) bus into the city for connections to the incredible public transport system on offer - Keyham railway station about 300 metres away for railway connection - costcutter supermarket in next street - chippie and pub next to Keyham station - house comfortable. clean and well kitted out in a quiet residential area - highly recommended.

Brilliant location with excellent restaurants so no need to cook and with the ferry right outside we hardly used the car. Would recommend.
