Great apartment - one bed flat. Very Clean and cosy. Well maintained. Parking and great location for the city and a night out. Helpful staff as key didn't work. Would definitely use again and would think of for a business trip also. Excellent!

Clean and Comfortable basic accommodation with all you need to be home from home. Not so sure of the upgrade to a superior room though, for instance the noise outside from traffic the very noticeable and you here people coming and going from other apartments within at all hours of the night. The TV was small and outdated as it... More

Booked only a week before. A fine location and a lovely suite. Breakfast was continental but beautifully fresh with a good choice. Staff could not have. Been more helpful. Parking good and only a short walk to Union Street .

Our stay started off perfect by letting us check in early after our long flight. The staff is friendly and helpful. Since it was my husbands birthday I asked for recommendations on a steak house for dinner. They suggested the Stage Door and made our reservations. After the day of exploring the city we came back to our room and... More

Stayed at this place for a couple of nights on a family vacation in August (on two separate occasions). Loved having all the space an apartment provides with two bedrooms and a nice living room. Also had a kitchen, which looked well-equipped, although we didn't use it on either stay. Both the apartments were very nice and clean and we... More

This was our first time in this type of accommodation and was so much better than a hotel room! Rooms spotless. All staff we came in contact with were courteous and friendly. Continental breakfast was more than adequate with selection of cereal, fresh fruit, various fruit juice, yoghurt, fresh pastries, toast, cold meats, cheese. We were on the 3rd floor... More
