Awarded plum guide certificate of excellence and 5 star gold from Visit England Tourism An elegant gated-entrance with carved granite and mosaic tiling leads into this unique residence at the heart of the city centre. A wide presidential-style staircase transports you to a spacious 2nd floor apartment, with flexible ambient room temperature provided by a heat exchange system, allowing you to heat the property on colder days and cool the property on warmer days. Each bedroom and the lounge are fitted with wall-mounted Samsung “Frame” TVs, complete with Netflix as well as many other features. When the TV is off, it is designed to turn your TV into a piece of elegantly framed art, enhancing your space and expressing your style. There are original sash windows and decorative fireplaces throughout and each bedroom is at opposite ends of the property giving privacy during your stay. The light west-facing living area has 2 large original sash windows with views of a courtyard and chimney pots. At night, when everything is lit, it feels like you have been transported into a Mary Poppins movie! There is a large 3 seater sofa, a 2 seater love sofa and a Charles Eames lounge chair, so comfortable it will be fought after following a day of sightseeing. The lounge has many side tables and chests in dark wood, numerous table lamps, an antique mirror, a large wall-mounted TV with Netflix, and captivating framed photographs. The contemporary dark grey and white corian kitchen has an induction hob, an electric oven, a microwave, a dishwasher, a generous fridge and a separate freezer. The cupboards are filled with lovely glasses, Denby crockery and there is a separate larder which stores the bin and numerous gadgets so that you shouldn't want for anything. A large butcher's block with storage underneath is located behind the kitchen door. It stores a state of the art Nespresso coffee machine (with some pods to get you started), a 4 slice Dualit toaster and a “Wine Art” 2 bottle wine cooler, allowing you to store red and white wine at the correct serving temperature. Moreover, thanks to an innovative vacuum system, “Wine Art” preserves 2 open bottles from oxidation, for up to 10 days after opening. There is a table with padded bench style seating for 4 guests which is easily moveable allowing you to make the most of the space in the kitchen. The master bedroom with 2 large original sash windows and secondary glazing is located at the south end of the hallway. The bed can be made up as either a 6' superking or 2 singles. Complete with 2 bedside tables, each with a large table lamp and 3 drawers. A vanity unit with hair dryer and illuminated make-up mirror above are also provided.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.
Learn more about our review moderation.
