Often, apartments don't live up to the descriptions but this one exceeded our expectations. Peter couldn't have been nicer or more welcoming, assisting us with travel arrangements and suggestions for good restaurants (which were indeed great). The terrace was a bonus for sitting outside with a morning coffee. We would not hesitate to recommend Peter and the apartment for anyone planning to stay in Liverpool.
