thankyou so much for your review
We really enjoyed our stay in this lovely Georgian apartment. The homely feel of the place made us feel at home from the moment we stepped through the door. The décor and the many paintings and art books made it feel very special. The bedding and towels were just lovely and the large, bright and airy rooms were a pleasure to stay in. Our little boy loved his big comfy, bed and bedroom – he enjoyed playing with all of his toys in there happily and safely.
As a small family with a five year old we rely on home cooking a lot and the kitchen wasn’t ideal for this due to lack of workspace. That said, it is the perfect breakfast kitchen and for people who prefer to eat out, so don’t let that discourage you!
We live in a flat with no garden and we were excited about having a garden of our own for the week. The private garden was not actually part of the house, but across the road from the building and unavailable at the time of our visit – I know this was being dealt with though and the owners were so helpful when we spoke to them. It was a shame though as having a garden was one of the selling points when we chose this holiday home.
However, these are minor issues. The fact is we had a lovely stay. The apartment was a great environment in which to kick back after a day exploring the area. It really felt like home. Our little boy loved it – especially that big bath! He usually hates baths!
The apartment was a short walk from the seaside and it only took 25 minutes to walk to Hastings which was a great place for our son to explore its many exciting activities. We had a great time looking for all the places from the movie Byzantium as well as checking out some of the more traditional coastal scenery!
The welcome pack was also very useful and gave us ideas of things to do in the area. We would absolutely recommend the holiday home, and Hastings. Thank you!
glad you enjoyed
The flat was lovely and filled with so many beautiful things, the welcome pack was filled with usual info both about the flat and surrounding area, and it was nice to have some tea, etc so we didn't have to rush to the shop so we could have a cuppa. The children enjoyed looking at the items in your lovely home and learning a bit about the world. The bath was amazing and I feel every home should have one lol. All in all it was a lovely place to stay and we really enjoyed our holiday
ThAnkyou so much ! I hope they liked the Richard scarry book ! Hehe some of those books are my daughters who is now
I have stayed in many holiday rentals both here and abroad but this experience was quite unique. I think the owners should decide if this is their home or a holiday let unfortunately it can't be both. Its nice to have some food left for emergencies but not a fridge full of comestibles belonging to someone else. Most people expect a wardrobe of some kind to hang their clothes its a little strange when its jammed packed with another persons garments. But this whole apartment was strange. Beautiful bath that takes forever and copious gallons of water to fill, a shower that only fits people of a small stature and nowhere to put anything because the bathroom shelf like every other surface in the flat is crammed full of the owners belongings. The bed in the front bedroom was quite comfy but the one in the back room left a lot to be desired as did the pillows. Well three pillows of sorts and a cushion pad stuffed into a pillow case all of which should have been thrown out many years ago! Please owners treat us to some new pillows, even the very cheapest pillows would be a huge improvement. The same goes for the towels which were small and old. I do think the owners are genuinely nice, caring, sharing people just very impractical and perhaps do not quite understand what most people expect from a holiday let. I do appreciate this is a reasonably priced let and my deposit was returned immediately also the owners couldn't have been more helpful to deal with but as a holiday let I don't think it works very well.
We are really sorry that the flat was not to your liking
this is the first feedback we have had of this nature
most people are happy with the fact that the place is homely
We have had a word with the cleaner who forgot to clean out the fridge on this occasion . The wardrobe in the big room is supposed to be locked the other one is empty for peoples clothes which is why you saw the clothes there ! We have replaced the pillows with the ones which were in the cupboard in the big room , i think we had some visitors who had a feather allergy so did that. But thanks for your feedback all the same. It is still an amazing bargain at 12.50 per night for each person so a little quirks can I suppose be acceptable ! Cheers
Absolutely beautiful. My mouth dropped when I walked in, a massive apartment ! So many beautiful trinkets and things to explore, wonderful collection of books and DVDs! The perfect atmosphere to read Tennyson!
The beds are comfortable, the apartment is warm and I would love to stay here again, perfect place! Thank you so much for making this beautiful apartment available for such a reasonable price! Especially as it is so close to the sea, the railway station and shops!
thankyou thankyou for the fab review
We loved staying here and although we could pick a few tiny holes, we can't wait to go back. I have given 5 stars to places in the past to places that have plenty of uncracked wine glasses and no missing light bulbs but give me the big squashy sofa, huge television, enormous bath, floor to ceiling windows, etc etc any day. Not to mention the very reasonable cost. I had my doubts about the location beforehand but its fine. Easy walking distance to the railway station, the sea, an interesting park, independent shops, a co-op, etc. Hastings old town is also in walking distance. Yet the street was very quiet, as was the flat, and street parking wasn't a problem (and free). Finally, the wifi worked fine.
thanks so much for the review . its our family holiday home to so we keep it like that so everyone can enjoy the luxury!
