A lovely flat in a really convenient location and with parking. It has been lovingly designed and furnished. It is light, airy and spacious. The bed is brilliant. I love it. I feel it is quite expensive and small details sometimes let it it down.

Nice apartment, excellent location & parking facilities. The communal entrance vestibule and tired bathroom let it down slightly.

This apartment is in a great location with parking! Very well equipped, comfy bed and some nice decorative touches. However, there are areas that would benefit from a deep clean and a freshen up.

Great central location just behind the High Street and within easy walking distance of everything. A real bonus to have the parking space next to the property.

The Hideaway is absolutely perfect for two people to enjoy a few days in Southwold. The location is perfect - right in the centre of town, but set back from the High Street so really quiet. The allocated parking space is a huge bonus in such a busy town - and the barrier makes it nice and secure. The apartment has everything that you could possiblyRead more need for a short break - we will be back!!!! Hide

The apartment is in a great central location and benefits from a car park space. Its light and airy in decor and has a nice feel to it. All kitchen equipment need is supplied so very easy to self-cater if choose. Nice welcome pack provided.

This caused exasperation of asthma due to allergic reaction - brought to lettings / owners attention but no recompense offered for costs incurred. The apartment also has the most uncomfortable set of sofas - lots of references to that in the in-property guest book. So not the most comfortable of apartments to stay in. Hide

The Hideaway was centrally located in Southwold and having a designated parking space so close to the centre of things was a real bonus. As we like to self-cater we found the kitchen well equipped and there was a useful welcome pack on arrival. A couple of nice pubs to have a drink in close by and some lovely coastal walks meant we had a good week Read moreeven though the weather was chilly. Hide

Excellent central location. Off street parking was great. Bed was comfortable. Sofas in the lounge were terrible (not comfortable at all). Style over substance. Shower was poor, flow was a dribble and not powerful at all. Many comments in the guest book about shower and sofa but the owners appear to have done nothing about it. Some simple changes Read moreand I suspect they would receive repeat bookings. Hide

The Hideaway is a delightful property tucked away just off the High Street. We love it and return each year. It is spacious and airy and very peaceful (except for the annual rearing of young herring gulls on the Conservative Club roof which is quite fascinating to observe. Parents noisily protective.) It is most important for us to have private paRead morerking and this property has its own parking place in the courtyard. The property is furnished in a modern style with well appointed kitchen. I would recommend this lovely flat to any couple who are happy to climb stairs and share the hallway with another flat and The Bakery on the High Street. It is a perfect location and a perfect place to relax. Hide
