This apartment has all the makings of a great holiday rental. Its a good size for 6 with the benefit of a pool, small gym and both a dishwasher and washing machine, so perfect for either 3 couples or 2 families. What let it down however were the lack of basics, for example hooks to hang coats (2 large cupboards but not a hook in sight), soap dishes (raised sinks) and bins. The main bedroom is really large but there was no dressing table so I ended up kneeling by my bed to dry my hair. There were lamps by the bedside but only a socket on one side! The open plan living room is very large and would benefit from a cupboard with games and a visitor book with recommendations of places to visit/eat, etc.
However, there were lots of positives, it was exceptionally clean, very warm and a central location for travelling to Weymouth or Portland. The pool was quiet but rather cold which put off one of the children in our party.
Overall it represented good value for money ... mehr
