I am starting a course at Marjon on January 12 and would like your advice on self catering apartments for a week or two before I organise a flat for rent. I plan to arrive the weekend before the course starts and need accomodation for a week or so. I plan to look around the noticeboards etc. at Marjon and get a flat for a year that way. I looked on the net for serviced apartments but they are obviously aimed at tourists and they are all very posh and pricey.
