Property conditions & facilities

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness
Some irritating features in an excellent location
Very clean. Very smart! Good cooking facilities BUT nowhere to sit and eat except a sofa - table and chairs badly needed. (This was the Studio Flat #2) Very comfortable bed BUT no bedside tables/ledges - VERY irritating and inconvenient. Superb, central location, and parking (for smaller cars) a real bonus. Coat hook/stand needed just inside door. LOTS OF STAIRS even for 'ground floor' accommodation. Lift is NOT at entrance door level, but up 7 fairly steep steps. Reaching my 'lower ground floor' flat involved two upward flights and two downward! One blind kept sliding down. Great eating places very nearby
