I stayed there last week with my daughter and her family. We stayed in one of the new modern apartments attached to the Old Bishop's quarters.
There were 5 of us, including one child and a toddler and we fitted very well into the space. The views of the bay from the deck were lovely. Our hosts went over and above. Not only did they leave Christmas presents under the tree for the children but they also very kindly sent their teenage son over to help us figure out the tv. They were very pleasant and helpful and made our dstay an enjoyable one. I slept on the trundler bed and it was soft enough for me to have a good night's sleep. The pillows were good quality, something else I appreciated. The sun streamed in the bedrooms and warmed up the polished concrete floors which made bed time in the cooler evenings more enjoyable. There were only two things that were slightly odd. We didn't get fresh towels for our 6 day stay. We managed by taking turns on the heated towel rail but I had to wash the bath mat and the face cloths half way through our stay. It would have been lovely t6o have fresh towels every day or even every second day. The other thing I found a bit disconcerting was the bathroom, and this would not have mattered if it was only a couple staying here. However there were three generations of us. The exterior wall of the bathroom was all window and if you were on the toilet or standing in the bathroom you could be clearly seen from the master bedroom. Two thirds of this exterior window had blinds but the other third- the shower cubicle did not.. While you were under the shower head you could not be seen but as soon as you moved away from the shower or into the rest of the bathroom to dry off you were 'exposed", not only through the window but in the reflection of the large mirror as I found that out much to my embarrassment. I took to showering without having the light on to try and preserve a little dignity. As I said this wouldn't matter if it was only a couple staying here. I enjoyed my stay here and would certainly recommend it.
