An extremely clean and comfy apartment that is in a very pleasant part of the island. However, what the description doesn't say is that the property is next to a very busy main road. If your aim for your holiday is to sit and relax on the balcony, be aware that this overlooks the car park and the very noisy road so not relaxing.

The living area was spacious and comfortable. In the kitchen the cooker/grill combination was potentially dangerous. A sensibly sized teapot would have been nice instead of the canteen version supplied. Desert sized plates would have helped. In the bedroom storage was good, another chair (or even a stool) would have helped. Pillows very uncomfortabRead morele (Were they straw filled?) and the duvet was too thick. Bathroom :see above.

This fantastic town is a hit with culturists, historians and holidaymakers alike. Dubbed ‘The English Spa’ in 1596, the town boasts spa water high in iron, sulphur and salt. The Royal Pump Room is still open today as a museum, showcasing the original equipment that was used in its heyday. Two other major draws to the town are the Harrogate Convention Centre and the Great Yorkshire Showground. The former is a multi-purpose venue large enough to house huge conventions and business conferences. Many of the events are fan-based like the Lego-themed attractions and comic-cons. The latter is an outdoor venue that hosts even large events and shows, namely the agricultural Great Yorkshire Show.

Fancy a day of walking? Head to the Valley Gardens, home to a multitude of landscaped gardens that embrace different styles and influence. For further horticultural foray, head to the RHS Garden, Harlow Carr. The stunning gardens provide a leafy retreat where you can wander through woodland and alongside waterways.

The town centre is home to an array of boutique fashion shops, as well as high street favourites in and around the Victoria Shopping Centre. The Montpellier Quarter also offers exclusive shops and a huge range of antique dealers, ideal for hunting out a unique bargain.
