Clean, convenient (close to shops, cafes), comfortable, warm (weather cold when we stayed). Great for bringing our dog. Our unit had a back door with a lawn outside so easy and perfect for his needs. We had accidentally double-booked and they were very helpful sorting this out.

This property is good value for money. We received a warm welcome and great service. The unit (2 bedroom) was clean and the bed comfy. There was a heat pump in the room which made it a nice temperature inside on a cold windy day outside. The bathroom is basic, but with plenty of room.
