Visiting a city for the first time can be quite an anxious experience, especially when we have to participate & perform in a festival. But the minute we arrived in CollegeView, all the worries disappeared because of its location, proximity and convenience to all facilities.
We opted for the 2 bedroom (1Queen & 1 single) and was set up nicely, with the single bed downstairs. We requested for a ground floor unit and was provided one. This was really nice, because we can sit around outside, like our own veranda.
Laundry was a bit expensive compared to a laundro-mat about 300m from the apartment. Being a self-catering apartment, food can still be ordered from the bed&breakfast place next door. We managed to do some grocery shopping in English Market at the town centre, to complete our food supplies.
Getting to the city central is within walking distance and very convenient. If you don't feel like walking, catching a cab or bus is also convenient.
The kitchen appliances were more than we would have expected. The bathroom upstairs was a bit cramped, but otherwise squeaky clean. Towels were changed on daily basis. Bed linen was changed every other day. WiFi was free and of high speed.
Overall, the place is recommended and who knows, we might comeback again - some day...
