    “* Lovely layout.”


    *Very much appreciated carspace. *Excellent for shops, Quality and quantity. *No issues with retrieving key after hours. *An extra set of keys would have been appreciated. * Special offer code for theatre was an old one (checked out with theatre) so couldn't use. * Couldn't find any laundry bags for bedding, towels etc at end of stay. * More advice on waste disposal would be helpful - found the general waste bins, but couldn't find any for recycled items. *Damp smell in second bedroom/bathroom. Overall, an enjoyable stay.
