About this listing
Delightful self contained apartment on the ground floor of our family home in the leafy suberb of Woodthorpe. The price is for one person with an additional cost of £15 a night for two people sharing.
Facilities include a single bedroom, a separate bedsitting room with another single bed, with a TV and access to the garden and your own external space. There is a wetroom and kitchen equipped with fridge freezer microwave and mini cooker. Washing machine facilities also available.
Woodthorpe Park is close by and we are a short walk from transport links into Nottingham City Centre which is two miles south of us.
We live in the old part of Woodthorpe which typically has large detached traditional houses on wide tree lined avenues. Ours is a quiet road and we have a large garden in which we keep chickens and bees. Ask about our home produced eggs and honey!
Wir wohnten über Sylvester in Maries schönem alten, typisch englischen Haus. Das Appartement war vom Platz her vollkommen ausreichend, im Kühlschrank standen Milch, Orangensaft und Butter. Selbstgemachter Honig war ein Highlight. Das Haus ist noch von einer Familie mit Kindern bewohnt, dadurch ist immer Leben im Haus. Da ich zum Hüten meiner Enkelkinder in England war, bin ich morgens sehr früh fort und kam abends erst im Dunkeln zurück. Am Neujahrsmorgen konnte ich jedoch ein wunderbares Jugendstilfenster im Badezimmer bewundern!
Very pleasant stay. Very friendly. The homely touches of milk and eggs in the fridge was a nice touch.
Marie is a very friendly and charming lady. The house is in a very pleasant part of Nottingham and it is easy to get to the city centre which is not far away.
I received a warm welcome from Marie upon arriving at her home, which is in a nice, quiet and easily accessible part of the city.
However I'm afraid to say I was disappointed with the state of the flat for several reasons.
Firstly the flat doesn't have a lock on the front door. As a young woman traveling alone I didn't feel safe staying somewhere I couldn't lock. If this had been made clear in the airbnb advert I would have never booked this accommodation.
Secondly the whole property was in need of a good clean. Everything was dusty, there was left over food in the kitchen and hair in the bathroom - suggesting it hadn't been cleaned after the previous guest.
And thirdly I'm not sure if this was due to thin walls or the acoustics of the house, but I was woken up at 7am on Sunday morning by heavy footsteps and people talking loudly.
I'm afraid to say I wouldn't stay here again and would advise lone female travellers against booking this accommodation due to previously mentioned security concerns.
In response to these issues, the key to the garden also locks the apartment door. I am sorry if I did not make this clear.
The flat is cleaned after each use and I am sorry it was not to the standard you expected. Please remember though that this is a home not a hotel and that is reflected in my pricing.
I do leave food for my guests so they have something for breakfast. This can be used or left as you wish. I am surprised that this was considered a problem.
Point taken about the noise. Another guest was leaving and I am sorry if that disturbed you.
I found Marie and her family very thoughtful and friendly. They were very helpful when my flight was delayed.
In general, my convenience was clearly very inportant to them.
Yet, they are not imposing at all and give you the space you wish.
oh, try their curry jem :)
Very nice place with gardens, warm atmosphere, clean, quiet, not far from Nottingham city center, easy access with bus.
Owner Marie, was welcoming and kind
