Eleanor, gb2 night trip
Very good 8.0
We stayed in an apartment which was good, but bathroom was very small and the shower and screen were in need of replacement. It was surprising that there were no tea coffee or milk so we had to buy these for our two night stay. The apartment did not seem to be the same standard as the hotel(where we have stayed previously and which was very good) but it was a superb position and quite good value.
