We check in our guests and are on hand for any questions, help or issues throughout your stay.

We do not have a dedicated parking space with the flat. However, it may be possible to arrange for a parking space for the duration of your stay. Please let us know prior to your booking if you need a parking space.
There is a strict no smoking policy at the EcoFlat. We have used high quality natural paints and other finishes and wish to keep these fresh and in good condition for the benefit of all our guests. If there is any evidence of smoking in the property we will make an extra cleaning charge of £500. If you wish to smoke please do so outside the building and use the butt-bins.
