I HAVE HAD MANY ENJOYABLE YEARS IN THE PAST LOOKING AFTER HOLIDAY MAKERS AND AM SORRY THIS IS UNABLE TO CONTINUE IN THE SAME WAY. I CONTINUE TO GET MANY ENQUIRIES SO AM TRYING TO MAKE IT CLEAR HERE SO THAT YOU ARE NOT DISAPPOINTED. Situated in a peaceful, portered block with lifts on the North bank of the Thames near to the Millenium Bridge I provide everything you need for self-catering comfort with more space than normal for a London one bedroomed apartment and if there is something missing, I am happy to try and provide it. I travel a lot myself, mainly for work, so I know what I need when I am away from home. I have taken this as my benchmark for the apartment. I chose this apartment for its location and my aim is to give you a secure comfortable home from home view of some of the best of tourist spots in London. If you don't feel like walking, just take the lift to the communal roof garden, rest your feet and look at the view! If you need a place to retreat to after a stressful business day, you can slump in front of all the sport you need. The flat is furnished in a comfortable, modern style with power shower and bath in the bathroom. The spacious sitting room and dining area is large with modular seating, dining table and chairs, satellite tv, music player, fax and there is a desk with laptop and FULL INCLUSIVE business broadband facilities including ethernet and wireless. The kitchen is fully equipped with dishwasher and microwave as well as washing machine, oven and hob. The bedroom has a modern four poster bed, very comfortable, and there are large and small hanging wardrobes, dressing table and chest of drawers. There is a sofa bed in the sitting room for additional guests. Please see below re quotes. The bathroom is simple and streamlined with white suite and has a power shower over the bath and mixer taps with hand shower. It is furnished with simple, modern classic, great looking good quality furniture and has recently been redecorated and given a new washing machine, oven and hot plates. More

Additional amenities & feature info
As I say the flat is completely equipped, including air cooling, but if there is something you might need or like to have, let me know and I will try to provide it. It is also suitable for corporate long lets and has had several in the many years I have been doing this. Therefore the flat is really equipped for a home from home. I personally travel a lot and know what I need when I go away! The kitchen is fully equipped. There is a washing machine in the flat and there is also a laundry in the basement providing larger pay machines and hot air dryers (pay. 50p) The spacious sitting room has a large modular corner sofa in neutral colours, a double sofa bed, a dining area with glass table and four chairs. There is also a desk for any writing you may wish to do and a laptop and printer provided for your use. There is a fax facility via the laptop and printer and wireless and ethernet internet is free unless the internet provider deems your use unreasonable! The flat has electric oil heaters and is supplemented with an air cool/heat system from the block. There is a double sofa bed which just pulls out. There is a porter downstairs who lives on the premises and is very helpful. He speaks a number of languages including French Italian and English. There is an NCP car park 5 mins walk away in Vintry and a few parking meters just 1 minute from the flat. Otherwise, ask me about parking. There is a Nuffield Health (formerly Cannons) gym with pool 5 mins walk away. The Retreat there provides massage and comprehensive beauty treatments etc together with osteopathy, and physiotherapist. Membership is NOT required for The Retreat area there and its services. There are a number of good hairdressers in the area, about a 7 mins walk away including Vidal Sassoon, Rush and Oasis There are small supermarkets around the area keeping long hours. If you like a walk to build your appetite the historic Borough Market, the breadbasket of London, can be found by London Bridge and Southwark Cathedral. Across the Millenium Bridge, next to Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, there are many restaurants of varying price ranges and styles. On the North Bank there are also many to choose from including three 'around the corner', including a very nice wine bar with organic produce. There is also a 'secret' cafe very close by, known mainly to the locals, nice food relaxed and modern, inexpensive. You have to ask me! There is a public facility for hire bicycles, nicknamed 'Boris Bikes', right around the corner.
