    5/5 Excellent

      Very nice location

      Does what it says on the tin, could do with a better and lick of paint but apart from that was perfect for us as a family, great location very wide small steps upto the flat

      4/5 Good

        Well located, good space

        Excellent location in the middle of Corsham village- close to excellent pub/restaurants. The high street is pedestrianised, so doorstep parking is not possible, but street parking is close by. The apartment is in an period building, and full of character. Sure its not a brand new hotel room, but this is to be expected.

        5/5 Excellent

          Excellent flat. We slept soundly. Easy access to all amenities.

          The flat stands in the centre of town, yet it is incredibly quiet. It was an excellent base for our venturing to Bath and Bristol. We thoroughly enjoyed the stay. We would recommend it.

          1/5

            Terrible

            The photos of this flat make it look fairly attractive. It isn't. It is sparsely and badly furnished with a very cheap uncomfortable bed. It feels like a student flat from the 80s rather than a holiday let. As soon as you open the door you are hit by a strong smell of drains and damp. I wondered when I rented it why it had no reviews. I guess people were just too polite to tell the truth, but I wouldn't wish this place on anyone and left after one night. Definitely one to avoid.

            3/5

              Wonderful location, but would I return? No.

              This unit could not be more centrally located in this small, attractive, and ancient village, home to all the Poldark TV series town scenes. The space itself was good, but not near as large as the pictures would make it seem. North Americans who are used to building floors being labeled "Ground"or "First Floor" are cautioned to remember that in England and Europe the "first floor' is the one above the "ground floor". I had forgotten this detail and was disappointed to find I had to walk up or down a flight of stairs every time I came or went. For someone with better knees than I, it would not be a big issue. Lighting maintenance was an issue in the apartment and the building. When we first arrived and were getting our bearings in the village we found we had to use our mobile phone lights to find our way into the dark side alley and darker vestibule where one then had to fumble in the dark to find the keyhole. Fortunately this was fixed on the second night. Inside the apartment the main room was too dark after sundown. Only 4 of the 6 weak bulbs in the overhead light worked and in the bedroom the overhead did not work at all. Fortunately the bedroom had two table lamps. The main room could have also used another table light and a floor lamp to make it a more congenial an atmosphere. Another issue was the radiator in the bedroom. The thermostatic control was completely erratic. Some times it was not on at all and several nights it went full blast during the night turning the bedroom into a sauna. All the other radiators worked normally. The ultra tight bathroom, while it had a stone lined modern shower and tub, was awkward and made more so by the use of a ten pound stone which was needed if one wanted the door open to let out the steam. A simple, inexpensive, flip down door stop would have been far better than "minding the stone". The kitchen was completely adequate and welcome. However, the available clothes washer in the kitchen did not seem as big a benefit when you realized there is no dryer. Hanging clothes on the patio works fine if you are living there, but it does not serve well for time constrained travelers who thought they might catch up their laundry. The biggest complaint I had with the "services" of this rental was that there was less than a 1/4 roll of toilet paper when we arrived and no spares. We had to supply our own tissue after that. This seems like a major oversight or else indifference by the owner.
