Individual guest reviews

  • Location is actually very good, the apartments are well situated for easy walks into town and the staff made you feel very welcome. Service is great, the bathrooms have nice towels and soaps, shampoos, ect, free communal computers and even a full sky sports package inclusing ESPN.

    Bad news situation, modern design and the ensuite shower was slightly cramped and the shower nozzle didn't function correctly. Sofa was a bit uncomfortable and concierge was extremely helpful, without being intrusive.
