I really am sorry that you were not happy with the flat and its location/value for money.
The Holiday Inn ,nearby, charges £168 a night for one room-which is described as "simply styled"-with free breakfast and wi-fi. You did thank me for supplying breakfast items-plus coffee, biscuits and fruit-that was appreciated, thank you.The apartment is fully equipped,unlike a hotel room- so there is the option of cooking a meal and doing laundry.
You say that the flat is described as a cottage. I can`t figure that out, because it has always been, and still is, advertised as an apartment. So I can , to some extent,understand your disappointment if you were expecting a cottage.
As you probably noticed, we have many excellent reviews-so,on balance, I think that the apartment represents good value for money-especially during the Festival.
All the best,
