I stayed at Mark's apartment this weekend just gone with a friend and we had a lovely time.
The flat is just as described and looks exactly like the photos. It is set in a lovely, quiet street but there are lots of shops/pubs about a two min walk away
-aswell as a beautiful canal. I didn't explore this much as I spent a lot of my time in central which is only about a 10 min taxi journey or 10-12 minutes on the bus so the location is great.
We booked quite last minute, but Mark was very accommodating and he kept in contact with me which made check in very smooth.
Would definitely stay there again... Thank you
