Great location and surprisingly quiet for a busy area. We had an issue with the hot water but were moved quickly which was appreciated.

It was unusual that we had to arrange another person to "meet and greet" this only happens when there is a conflict with a personal arrangement e.g. a wedding but we always ensure the guest obtains access just the same.

Communication could have better when their approx arrival time changed dramatically from the original provided, the property does not have a reception desk and we need approx arrival time so the day can be planned out for the rendezvous to provide access.
