  • “We stayed in 'The Lookout' 5 years ago and I'm afraid to say that the property hasn't been updated or maintained to a high standard within this time.”

    We've also stayed at 3 other properties within the Apartment block and they seem to have better maintenance. In general the apartment is looking tired, the sofa has been replaced but isn't very comfortable. There were numerous down lighters lights which weren't working. There was a block of wood holding up the floating toilet in the upstairs bathroom. Dirt along the upstairs shower cubicle which was also broken. Dirt/rust on the radiator in the hallway. No games/books etc which I assume ...

    We've also stayed at 3 other properties within the Apartment block and they seem to have better maintenance. In general the apartment is looking tired, the sofa has been replaced but isn't very comfortable. There were numerous down lighters lights which weren't working. There was a block of wood holding up the floating toilet in the upstairs bathroom. Dirt along the upstairs shower cubicle which was also broken. Dirt/rust on the radiator in the hallway. No games/books etc which I assume have been taken away due to covid but we stopped in 'The Penthouse' in 2020 and they still have games/books/puzzles etc. Basic Sky package with no films etc. The skyline window in the master bedroom has been screwed closed so you cannot open fully. Although there were hair dryers, no hair straighteners which have been in other properties. To say we have stayed in these apartment blocks for the past 5 years running, this year was quite disappointing as the whole apartment needs some general maintenance.
