Was very clean upon arrival (ensure that you note how clean everything is as the landlord expects it to be this clean), furnished comfortably, if dated. Kitchen is very basic, small bar fridge, gas oven and gas stove tops (4). Kitchen bench available as well, but obviously not enough space to cook up a storm. All in all, the house is comfortable, and great as somewhere to stay for a short period of time to purchase your own furniture for a future house.
The landlord is where things get tricky - it was quite obvious upon the first meeting that the Mrs is quite deluded - very abrupt and quite rude. Passed this off as a scare tactic to ensure we were behaved tenants, as well as being eccentric. Over time though, became very nosy. Could not use the (shared) washing machine facilities towards night time, as it may disturb themselves or other tenants/temp guests in BnB. Washing that was done was inspected to 'see if zippers were done up, as it may damage the machine'. Post clearly labeled to our own Flat number was opened as it 'was mistaken to be theirs'. Notes were left all over the place, slipped under the front door, left in washing baskets etc.
Finally, after the lease was (almost) ended, the other tenant in the lease I took decided to stay, and so cleaning was left to myself (not a problem). Unfortunately, nothing will be good enough for the Mrs standards - you "will not get much of the bond back" if you arent careful. I have had to bring in professional cleaners, who even then she doubts will do a good enough job. BE CAREFUL! She will do anything she can to keep your bond. Money grubbing and rude. Wouldn't recommend staying here for more then 3 months, as I got sick of the place about that time...
To reiterate - clean and copmfortable (old furniture) small kitchen, perfect for people who don't like to cook, rude, noisy and deluded landlord (Mrs, Mr is quite nice
