Guest access is by prior agreement. We have a lockbox and self checkin is the usual method of entry. We can be at the flat to let you in at an agreed time if you prefer this. Usual checkin time is any time after 6pm and checkout is by 11 am. Earlier check-in can sometimes be arranged especially at weekends. There is limited free parking on Saunders Street in one of the 25 residents spaces. These are unreserved so it is first come first served. If you want a free space and these spaces are full you will have to wait for someone to leave. Street parking in Saunders Street and India Place is free after 5.30pm or all day Saturday and Sunday. Otherwise parking is pay and display and charges apply Monday to Friday 8 30am to 530 pm. We cannot be held responsible for any fines you incur as a result of parking illegally and advise you to always read the parking rules on the street signs and meters. Every street has its own parking rules and these are posted on lamp posts.
Interaction with guests
We have a self checkin service but can be at the apartment to meet you and show you the flat if you would like this. We can explain the area and answer any questions. We live 10 minutes away by car and guests will have our mobile numbers so we can often be on hand very quickly if needed.
Other things to note
There are no stairs or steps inside the flat and there is lift access from the Saunders Street side of the building at street level to the flat, which is on the third floor. It is also possible to access the building with stair access from an entrance on India Place. There is a flat below and a flat above. It is possible to hear people walking around upstairs so this space is not recommended if you think this could annoy you or disturb your sleep. For bookings of 8 days and up to 14 days, the flat will be refreshed and linen and towels will be changed mid-stay. This will happen weekly for longer bookings.
We do not charge a cleaning fee so please leave the flat as you would wish to find it. If you do not want to leave the flat clean and tidy then please do not book it.
We want you to have a wonderful stay so try to keep rules to a minimum but as this is a residential area please respect our neighbours by not playing music or making any loud noise after 10pm.
We have decorated and would be grateful if you could take your shoes off in the house.
There is absolutely no smoking allowed in the flat, including leaning out of the window, or in the common stair. Please go right outside the building if you want to smoke.
Please let us know at the time of booking how many people there are in your party.
The maximum is 4 guests. - Guests who break this maximum occupancy rule will be required to leave immediately.
Sorry no pets.
Children are welcome. For infants we have a high chair but no cot so you would need to bring your own.
From Oct 26 - 28, 2017 the minimum stay is 2 nights.
