Did I enjoy my stay = Mixed Review
Hi, In fairness to any future guests at this property, I feel it best to point out the down sides as well as the good points.
The landlord himself was very pleasant and helpful, as was his wife, however, the contents of the property really need replacing and certain areas to be refurbished for health & safety reasons.
· General overview [The apartment is adjacent to their home]
o The furnishings were all very weathered and worn
o The door in the room next to the lounge going through to the kitchen would not stay open without pushing one of the sofas against it
o There were only curtains on the windows at the front of the property which overlooked the front garden and their home. The rear windows had no curtains and if he/they were in the garden their was no privacy at all.
o At the rear, was a garden which spread along the length of both properties. On the Saturday, the landlord was gardening and putting items on a fire he had lit. This meant he was in clear view from the kitchen and the lounge, and of course he could see me. I felt quite uncomfortable with this arrangement as there was no privacy if I was sat watching the TV or doing cooking, etc in the kitchen.
o The rear garden had a number of vehicles parked there as well as a van. There was sufficient room for my car but it looked a bit of a mess.
o As the apartment was linked to the house, a lock had been put on the adjacent door through to their side. On my side, this adjacent door was between the kitchen and a study next to the lounge. If they were cooking, the aromas drifted into my area. Also, on the Saturday evening they were having an argument and this was clearly heard, as were other general conversations and noises from the children. In fact, when I arrived back on the Friday late afternoon, when I entered the property I could hear a man’s voice and immediately thought someone was in my property. It was the landlord in his area.
o No bathroom curtain. Although the glass was glazed, I still felt quite vulnerable. With this type of glass you cann’t see everything but you can see an outline of a person’s body.
o No toilet rolls
o Shower head very low water pressure and a small head
· Kitchen - No water glasses, no salt or pepper,
o the floor had a cable running underneath a part of the lino.
Bedroom had no wardrobe just a wooden unit and a maiden
It is not 'Beautiful' - independent but hear noises/etc
