Fair 4.0
Hmm not again
It was an expensive stay considering that I'd already paid £91.25 and then to be told that i needed to pay a £60.00 service charge. This was not clear and the time of booking, so was suprised to get hit with a service charge - not quite sure what service i got. The room was very hot, small and lots of noise outside. I will not be staying again.

Family trip.. worth it!
This is the wonderful holiday with my family. Everyone is enjoy and relax in this lovely comfort accommodation. My children love it so much.. much to do in the area. Although just a short trip, but would like to go back again and book the same accommodation!

Watch out for ADDITIONAL costs
Very disappointed. I've used for year and this was the first time I was hit with an additional charge - and for £65 for cleaning! I'd already paid £115 for the apartment. The apartment is in a great location but was small and only one bedroom and the total cost being £180 for one night is ridiculous even for this time of year. There are much larger apartments available in the same complex for less money. To make matters more laughable the apartment was not even that clean, despite the high cleaning charges. When I called the owner/manager of the apartment to complain that this cleaning charge is not clearly explained on the page they had a 'could not careless attitude' which further let down the whole experience. In summary the apartment is nice, location fantastic, but pricing is misleading and the total cost is very uncompetitive. Much better out there for less. Be wary of the Cleaning Costs and be wary of Plum Properties whom manage it

Very good 8.0
Prince Williams yard is a brilliant location with restaurants locally. The nearest supermarket is about 10-15 mins walk away. There are ferries to Plymouth trourist area, but I managed to miss them the 2 times I was planning to use it so walked once and caught the bus the next time. Flat is spacious. The sofas aren't wonderfully comfortable, but are Ok. Bedrooms good. Most of what you need is provided including tea, coffee and milk.

One night stay for business.
Nice pleasant apartment, had everything I needed for a short stay. It was a bit hot and didn't have air conditioning, so I had to open the window. Also the wifi didn't work.
