"The flat is a delight. It is close to shops takeaways and pubs yet we found it quiet and relaxing. We loved the place. The only minor issue we had was getting blocked in by an inconsiderate neighbour. Choose your parking spot to ensure that can't happen and you'll be fine."

Good location.
"The property was clean, spacious and comfortable. The location is very convenient with lovely views. However there isn't a freezer, not even a section in the fridge, so we couldn't freeze the ice packs for the cool box. But apart from that the house is well equiped."
