We spent two weeks here this month (October) in one one bedroom apartment and one two bedroom apartment. Hosts were great and very attentive. Apartments were both clean and tidy and well equipped. Excellent security on site and underground car park is also secure (and free!).

Stayed here recently. You get what you pay for, stairs to the apartment, good secure parking, compact unit. The bathroom tiles need cleaning, especially behind the door, i wonder how long the jogger print has been sitting there and grout needs some attention in the cleaning

Hi Happy Snapper, Fancy this we must be honoured that you would take the time to make two reviews for the one stay here, one through Hotels.com and now Trip Advisor again we don't know who you are and some of your account above is misleading. Our housekeeping team would be a little upset about your claims and I will pass this onto them, if only we knew where you stayed. I would remind you that we are a self-contained apartment building which means - we supply a starter pack for all guests on arrival - meaning toilet roll, soap shampoo tea coffee milk and all linen. Once these supplies are exhausted you top them up as required. This is another way we can give the benefits of a competitive tariff. Credit card details are needed by every guests for security reasons on the unit and as you say if the unit was left in a disgraceful mess we would charge those guests because the housekeepers would pass the extra work and charge us accordingly. In your case you weren't charged as you did remove your rubbish prior to your departure. I hope by describing this you now understand what you booked as it clearly states this on our own website, however you may have not read this on the other sites you visited. Regards Gerard & Shirley Mgmt.

Hi Ben H, thank you for a balanced and mostly positive report on our accommodation. Let me point out though why we charge for an extra person. The tariff for a one bedroom is for two people only, so $30 for a third person seems fair to me and is not for the extra linen although that covers a part of this. I would have been happy to supply you more WiFi if you had asked, most guests are happy to use this to check their email. We can certainly provide unlimited WiFi but at a cost. We advertise that we are a three storey walk up building so if you had booked direct you may have had a choice of other availability.

"All Quiet any room really"
"Thanks to the management who suggested a 'quiet' room at the rear of the building."
"Rooms off the highway would be a smart choice, but not essential"
"don't bother with this place due to rather unpleasant lady ( eye roller) at reception"
"There is no lift but stairs are minimal."
