Once again Dickins made my stay wonderful. I didn’t have to worry about a thing. The flat was of a very high standard and quality as always. The efficiency, cheerfulness and care with which everything is done makes such a difference. We loved it.

I chose to rent an apartment instead of using a hotel. This was a great decision, not least because of Dickins. You stand head and shoulders above your competitors, not simply because of our experience but also based upon the bad experiences my colleagues have had elsewhere! The apartment was a home from home, what more can you ask
