We stayed in the apartment a couple of weekends for 2 nights. With a 18 month old, having more than just a room was important and the apartment was just what we needed.
Just off the main road it was really easy to find and a bus stop directly opposite made getting round easier. Worth noting though that if you get on here the bus terminates at the bottom of the hill and you have to reswipe your Oyster card (and talking of Oyster, it's not worth trying to travel without one - the newsagents round the corner sells them though)
There was mixture of crockery and cutlery, and not necessarily 4 of everything; not many utensils either if you're self catering and no microwave. A nice touch was to have tea provided but there was no coffee. The oven also had an annoying tick that only stopped when turned off at the mains.
Worth noting that there's only one sofa in the living area but plenty of room for another. We had friends pop in at one point and this meant there wasn't enough soft seating. There were also only 2 chairs around the small dining table (though there were 2 folding chairs tucked away).
It's easy to gripe over things that need improvement but Lydia was really welcoming and made sure we were comfortable, we were made welcome to use the garden attached to the property which was a godsend with a toddler.
