Our guest reviews


Our aim is to provide the best possible hospitality experience for our guests and reviews help us measure this. So we’re delighted to be rated “Excellent” by our guests on TripAdvisor, AirBnB, Vrbo/HomeAway, our own website and in our guestbook. 

TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence for Holiday Rentals in the UK were first introduced in 2017 and we are proud to have won every year.  In 2020 this was superseded by the TripAdvisor Travellers Choice Award, which we are also proud to have won. Indeed we have over 50 TripAdvisor reviews alone and they all rate us as excellent. For instance one of the reasons for this is that we listen to our guests and make ongoing improvements – a welcome challenge! In fact we share all of our reviews, so that you can see what to expect when you choose to stay at our apartment. So you can read them by clicking below.
