Kathrin Bender-Nienh, German (18 August 15)
Very uncomplicated and friendly service at Talybont North Residence regarding keys pick-up and return. Friendly contact beforehand (via email). Only critique: Problematic: Payment by VISA from abroad because security digit had to be sent by email (very unsafe/unusual) instead of safe site. Kitchen not used, very hot room. Room itself practical. Good parking
