“First of all I would like to say the views from the flat were brilliant, I could sit there all day and watch the boats coming and going and from a base point of view couldn’t be better, Walk into town in two minutes , also suprisingly quiet at night being next to a pub
The front door to the flat has been fitted and not finished off on both sides, leaving yellow foam and packers clearly visible, not a very good first sight and getting through the door with luggage is also difficult because your met by a chair lift
The entrance to the top flat is very dark due mainly to the dark wood, this theme continues into the kitchen with dark and old fashioned units, old appliances with paint pealing off the washing machine, this gives an impression of it being Grubby and dirty, which I’m sure it wasn’t but never the less it still gives that impression, the same goes for the shower room, old paintwork with a big chunk out of the woodwork behind the door, sealant around the shower base that has gone a dirt brown colour , a shower that annoyingly drips unless you put the arm in the 8 o clock position and really push hard, took us several days to figure this out, An extractor fan that seems to have a mind of its own and comes on and stays on for ages for no apparent reason, a toilet seat that keeps twisting around everytime you sit on it and a mirror that for some I unknown reason has been fitted on the opposite wall to the sink!”
The recliner chairs have seen better days and should come with a warning, if you lean forward to then pushback with your heels to reverse the recline to a normal chair the whole thing falls forward, this happened more than once to us, it was funny the first time, (good job we didn’t have a cup of tea in our hand) , but soon got annoying
Don’t even think about using the Internet other than downloading e mails and even then if two people are at the same time it’s a waste of time!
Facebook won’t even load pics, the fastest download I got while I was there was 4.4, if you have a couple of kids it would be next to useless, I had to resort to using the data on my phone on more than one occasion
quit alarmingly the fire escape is chained up with a padlock that is corroded where you put the key in
This is a very old and tired flat that needs updating and a lick of “White” paint and some modern lamp shades would go a miss, the one you are met with when opening the door must be Victorian!
I would have thought with the time we were in the lockdown someone could have at least given the flat a new coat of paint
