We really enjoyed our stay at the flat, it was the perfect base for our stay in Stratford. We have a baby so wanted a comfortable base to be out during the day and be in during the evenings and the flat was perfect for this. Appreciated the travel cot and high chair as makes travelling with a baby easier.
