I recently stayed in these apartments as one member of a Hen party. The apartments are clean, well maintained and stylish. They are beautifully decorated, come with a high specification kitchen (including glass champagne flute glasses and a dishwasher) and contain the most comfortable beds I have ever, ever slept in.
The location is also ideal - a short drive away from the 'Diamond Strip' of bars and clubs, but just far enough out of the madness for comfort.
If I could provide a small downside, I would say that at times the receptionists could be quite grumpy. For example, at one point we were in the reception ordering a taxi to take us out to an activity. Our Hen was dressed up in the normal 'Hen' toot and we were told by the receptionist that 'the manager had better not see you like that, if you look like that, what is the room like'. It wasn't said in a jokey manner either! We were also told that our security deposit had to be paid in cash (we wasn't made aware of this before we stayed) and we were also not permitted to stick any decorative items on the walls of the apartments.
I would 100% recommend these apartments though, they are amazing!! We couldn't want for anything more from our dwellings in Newcastle!!!!
