the location is more convenience and the building outlook is new. Unfortunately, the facilities and equipment in the hotel room is horrible. Most of them are broken. it is poor management in this hotel. Even I have reported my findings on my 1st day but no one to help to fix the problem on broken light bulbs, flushing water button,...

Apart from the location, this apartment is just as functional as you could want if you are planning to stay out all day and just return to a bed to sleep in. The bathroom is slightly rusty, with some chipped fixtures and fittings. The bedroom has no window, and the lounge is overlooking a huge building site (at least from... More

I selected this apartment as a change from the usual hotels that I spend time in. The apartment was very well appointed, spacious and clean. I was very pleased with my choice as I was there for a few days and it gave me a base that felt more like home than yet another hotel. I checked in late (11:00pm)... More

Recently spent a long weekend in a 9th floor apartment and it was a complete let down. Having stayed in these apartments not long after they opened I can safely say that the high standard of a new business has not been maintained. The whole effect is dated and tired - from the rusty utensils in the kitchen to no... More

We checked in and left 10mins after seeing the apartment. Arrived for a two day stay and first issue was the car park is £15 a night so that's not a good start. Opened apartment door and shreds of broken glass welcomed us. The laminate flooring was flithy laced in grease and dirt and fragments of glass and was coming... More

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

We booked this for an overnight stay for our daughters graduation. At the time of booking we were unsure how many family members would be with us so we booked the two room appartment for £59 through booking.com.It is basic but the toilets & bedding were clean & it was near to the graduation venue,it certainly isn't anything fancy but...

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
