Experience:
Quite smooth. I needed an appointment. Cost me £10 in phone costs to make the appointment. There is a waiting time of about 10 days in getting an appointment.

Took me 10 mins to submit the application. The visa was processed in 10 days and it was easy enough to pick my passport up. Note: there were special times for submitting and picking up passports. I could only pick it up between 1.15pm and 3pm on weekdays. This was an inconvenience.

They gave me a 6 month multiple entry Schengen visa.
The staff were very nice and were responsive via email.
