Two friends and I stayed here for a 3 day trip and we were pleased with our apartment! The two big bedrooms, one with an ensuite, were clean, nicely furnished and had plenty of room. Everything in the kitchen was clean and worked fine. Loads of space in the living room too, and a balcony that could have done with... More

I'm not at all impressed with the Blue Rainbow Apartments. I'd say only stay here if you absolutely have to. My apartment was tired with dirty handprints on the walls, broken laminate flooring, broken facias under the kitchen cupboards. The carpets were dirty and when I looked behind the bed I wished I hadn't as it was laden with dust... More

these apartments are not true to there description. Be very careful when staying here. We booked an executive apartment for our daughters graduation and we were so upset. They are not as described. It is false representation. They are not clean, the kitchen does not have suitable crockery/pots etc in. We could not see due to the light bulbs that... More

Whoever made the webpage for this place really sold this place to us. When we arrived by car, we couldn't see the location of the apartments very clearly. Their logo is pink with small text. Not blue or in any rainbow form. The images on the website must be the sole reason why these people are still running. The room... More

We spent three nights in the aparthotel, two adults and three children in two separate apartements. The apartement was spacious, and okey equipped. And the staff was friendly and helpful. I guess this was a fancy hotel when it was built, but it seems that they do not invest enough to keep the standard. Only half of the downlights are... More

We booked this apartment and were told that is was an executive apartment which was supposed to be the best category. I dread to think what a standard one would look like. It was shockingly badly maintained. Half the lights did not work, either in the ceilings or by the bed. This was an apartment that was supposed to sleep... More

Looks good on the pictures yet the appt. was grubby to the point we would not cook in the kitchen or stand in the filthy lounge rug in bare feet. The tap in the bathroom sink was broken and there was an odd smell which we could not get rid of despite opening all the available Windows. We were given... More

The reception area is a bad layout, really small & only 1 member of staff on the desk so there was a large queue on the stairs from the entrance for check in. Room was dated, marks all over the bathroom mirror, blinds didn't work, few lights not working so this made it really dark! Worst nights sleep I've ever... More

Just remembered to write a review of my stay last December. It's easy to list what went right. Nothing. Check in was prolonged with the guy at the desk dealing with me whilst on the phone to someone else. He gave me basic info about where to park the car as in its round the corner, just press the button... More

We booked this hotel for a night and I stayed with my boyfriend, sister and her husband. It was a 2-bedroom apartment and we drove up in separate cars. We had the sat nav on and although it was telling us we had arrived, we couldn't for the life of us find the hotel. We stopped a few pedestrians to... More
