"Thoroughly enjoyed this lovely apartment. Quiet and excellent location" GF, Maine, USA 

"Great location. Buses stop directly outside of the apartment complex on Banbury Road, and they are frequent. The shower has its own instant hot water system, so you never have to worry. It's actually a fairly large apartment and the four of us didn't feel too much on top of each other while living here"  L. Foley, Florida, USA

"The flat is comfortable, facilities good, and it made a good base for a working visit to the area for my colleagues. All the people with whom we dealt were professional, friendly and efficient, and the flat was clean, tidy, and welcoming" Anon, Bristol
