Third floor apartment in residential block, good site for central Darlington. When arranging access was advised that this was the only flat now owned by this organisation. Flat itself clean, sadly a pile of rubbish sacks in the hallway outside the flat beginning to smell badly. This was reported and no action was taken during our weekend stay. Oven didn't work, washing machine did, but integral tumbledryer did not. Various lightbulbs were missing through the flat. Bathroom looked very smart, but shower door wouldn't slide so bathroom floor was soaked with every shower. As no external windows this left a general dampness throughout the flat. Bath/shower plughole wouldn't open properly so very slow emptying. After initial report (of the rubbish) made on arrival, office was then closed for the weekend so problems encountered could not be reported. Carpets some kind of very hard sisal or similar - not comfortable. The cleanliness did not make up for the very cheap feel of the apartment - more budget showhouse than luxury apartment. The privacy of having an apartment did not make up for having problems that could not be reported or resolved.
