“Living in a Churchill Apartment is absolutely marvellous. The whole building is so nice and warm all the time that we’ve hardly had to use the heating inside our apartment.

“I’d say the best thing about living here is the location. My apartment itself is nice and airy and spacious, but it’s all about location, location, location! I chose this particular Lodge as I was downsizing and needed an apartment in the centre of town. This is ideal!”
