    “Small Sofa was broken, quite uncomfortable, back yard was ok for letting the dogs out, sadly some dog poo left by previous occupants or maybe a cat.”

    Beds were comfortable super king was welcome, surprised bed size is never on the filters. We’d never book a place that says double bed, it’s essential for us as we have a super king at home, the twins on the top floor probably only good for kids we didn’t use them. Shower was poor, not much better than a watering can. Smart tv so plenty of viewing options. Refurbishment definitely diy. mish mash of mugs, cutlery etc. No welcome pack which I thought was mentioned, but I may be mistaken ...

Parking wasn’t easy although only one time we couldn’t find anything. However the location is perfect, seconds from the centre, decent eating options on your doorstep, booking for san pietro essential, we failed sadly. The shy pig was the best place we ate at. Tapios and cafe Italia both ok. Enjoyed our stay despite some of the flaws, a little pricey for the standard of property. Huge potential though.
