The apartment is extremely nice and in a good location - parking is the main issue with where it is, but not anything within your control.. Only a few things spoiled the accommodation itself - the cleaning needs to be improved for all high surfaces - tops of cupboards, wardrobes etc as well as dusting the light fittings.
Secondly - there is a distinct lack of cost hooks - especially as there were four of us - this simple low cost addition would help.
Overall - we had a great time and it’s a very nice apartment.
It was great-high end finishes (heated bathroom floor, dish washer coffee machine ) and thoughtful touches such as bathrobes, wine and milk and lots of kinds of tea made for a wonderful stay..

Lovely apartment and perfect location for Tunbridge Wells
Parking is highly restricted so can be quite problematic for visitors with cars or expensive to pay for longer stay parking.. Free parking is possible within about a 10 minute walk but that might not be obvious to visitors who do not know the area.
Everything wa great - my only feedback would be more instructions/guidance on how to use things in the flat, like heating and TV.. As I stayed more than a week it would have been good to have information about cleaning, changing bed linen etc. I didn't mind doing it myself but I didn't know.
