5 star city centre townhouse - recently renovated

Amazing location and tastefully decorated

  • 5 of 5

Check-in was smooth although Matthew wasn't there to greet us. House is ideally situated: right in the city centre but relatively quite and secluded once you shut the door. The house is a three-storey half-frontage terrace, quite spacious, very good bathroom and well-equipped kitchen plus three spacious bedrooms. There's a small outdoor garden which is nice for taking a bit of fresh air and a small dining area next to the kitchen. The house was comfortable for four adults and can be recommended for a family or group of friends who want to stay in the centre of the city.

Not as good as the description

  • 3 of 5

This property was disappointing. The renovation was incomplete, and it was certainly not a 5-star property. There were wet towels hanging on the airer, no stair carpet, and several dirty dishes and glasses around, as well as empty bottles. A rubbish bag had been left on the street outside the door, which, of course, the animals got to overnight.

This is really unfortunate, because the property is perfectly placed for the town, and could very easily be improved so that it really did match the description.

a great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

It was very clean and well maintained, ideally it would have another loo as its a lot of people for one bathroom but it wasn't a major issue. The kitchen needed more cooking equipment with only 2 saucepans for 8 people! We really enjoyed our stay, its very close to the shops
