We tried to book the coach house for 2 nights but it was fully booked but was offered one of the 3 bedroom apartments instead at a heavily discounted rate. First impressions were good with the size and grandeur of the place and the nice decor and a complimentary bottle of wine bread and milk in the fridge. Once you get over the wow factor and scratch beneath the surface you will find that the furniture fixtures and fittings are all past their sell by date and are showing the signs of wear and tear. The coffee machine in the kitchen was broken, all the furniture is quite shabby and tatty the living room sofas are dirty ans stained the table in the living room was an accident waiting to happen with the legs on one end being broken and just balanced underneath the table top. The shower in the bathroom didn't drain properly and after a minute or so you were in danger of flooding the floor due to it overflowing. The handles on the taps were slack and came off in your hand.
I feel guilty complaining given how little we paid for the apartment but I thought it worth mentioning these facts as many people will be paying top dollar for their stay there and they will deserve better.
With a little bit of TLC and some new furniture these apartments would be worthy of 5 out of 5 but in their current condition I would only rate them 3 out of 5
