About this listing
I have been hosting for over 3 years now and enjoy having guests come and stay. My flat is ideal for short or long stays, tourists or business people. The flexible nature of the bedroom also means I can host singles, couples, families or friends.
This is a very clean single/twin/double room in 3 bedroom maisonette (duplex) in a very vibrant and arty neighbourhood. The ground floor is made up of the kitchen/diner and open plan living room. Bedrooms and bathroom are upstairs. The apartment is very warm and light and airy with a great view towards the city and west end. The entire apartment was re-modelled five years ago so everything is new and in good working order!
Well equipped with comfortable bed (with pull-out for second guest), clean bedding and warm duvet. The room can be configured for a single guest, two sharing or a couple. Lots of drawers and hanging space in the wardrobe for your things. Bedside table with reading light and DAB radio/alarm. Small TV with a limited range of FreeView channels.
Three piece suite shared with owner. Power shower and bath, and a never-ending supply of hot water for a long soak after a hard day's sightseeing.
Guests can use the kitchen to prepare meals. Facilities include: large fridge-freezer, gas stove and electric oven, microwave, toaster, kettle etc. Washing machine available (no charge) for guests staying 5 days or longer (or £3 per wash otherwise).

Other Things to Note
This room would especially suit out-of-town Mon-Fri commuter looking for an alternative to Travel Lodge etc.
Guests are asked to take special care not to mark walls (flat newly redecorated) particularly when carrying luggage up and down the stairs.
No smoking in the flat but you may on the balcony.
You may have visitors over (not overnight), but please ask me first.
Please secure the front door by double-locking it with the key to fully engage all locking bolts. This should be done on entering and exiting the flat.
Please do not eat or drink in the lounge, there is a large dining table in the open plan kitchen and you can see the TV from there anyway!
Lower kitchen window blinds when going out (security).
Please leave shoes by the front door, the flat is very warm and stocking or bare feet are ok.
That's it - enjoy!
