We stayed with Gordon for about three days, and his hospitality was lovely! Very well kept apartment with great accessibility to the city centre. Gordon was a very generous host. I would recommend his place to anyone just passing through or staying longer.
Gordon was a stellar host! My friend and I got turned around on our way there and when we called him he came and found us and walked us back to his place. The apartment overlooks the river and is ideally located- a stones throw from lots of attractions, restaurants, and pubs. It is also a short walk from the bus stop. And a great price!
