About Ms M Dingley

I'm a well travelled woman who always appreciated quality, cleanliness, value for money and a good customer service. These are my fundamental expectations when I rent a place and I have made it my priority to provide such assurances to those who stay at Parkside Place.

Ms M Dingley purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Ms M Dingley chose Cambridge

I have decorated and fitted this brand new apartment with the intention of making anyone who stays feel at home whilst they are away. Also including all the vital modern necessities that we take for granted at no extra costs.

What makes this apartment unique

This property in my view is the best location in Cambridge, walking distance to every place of interest, from the university colleges, shopping centres, museums, restaurants, bars and one of the landmark parks in Cambridge (Parker's Piece), whilst also only around the corner from the train and bus stations that go to and from any city or airport.

Mercedes was cordial and helpful. The apartment is centrally located with a great view. Everything in the apartment was just fine and appreciated. Returning the damage deposit it cash in pounds wasn't the best for someone leaving the country immediately...that's the only thing. We'll have lots of cash ready to go for the next visit, however!
