    Very nice apartment, although the hot water system failed on the last day.More explanation and labels of the various switches would help.

    Many thanks for the welsh cakes and milk. The apartment is a lovely place to stay for a holiday, very tastefully decorated and a really comfortable bed. We have had a lovely time, we keep looking at other parts of the country and still keep coming back here. The food at the Prince of Wales was very nice.
