Snooze Apartments
Reviewed September 8, 2013

I purchased the Two's Company package which includes a 2 night stay at the snooze apartments, a full boy massage for 2, and a seaweed bath for two. From the moment we arrived, everything was perfect! Apartment 7C is the room included in this package, was magical. Comfortable bed, massive living room & kitchen, amazing views of both the seafront and the mountains. Lovely powerful shower also. The apartments are a 5 minute walk from Newcastle centre (basically everything is 5 minutes from everywhere in Newcastle). The staff, Dermot & Steve, are the definition of friendliness! Helpful in every way. The massages were obscenely relaxing!!! And the seaweed baths are an experience that must be tried to be believed. You come out of them feeling like a there's not a care in the world. I cannot recommend this place enough, and without a shadow of a doubt, will be back again soon.
Thanks for a wonderful time lads.

We booked apartment 7c for a week in August. We were in the heart of down golfing comp and wanted to stay in Newcastle. This apartment was perfect from start to finish..... modern, clean, great location and views. It had everything we wanted especially after getting soaked through to the skin while golfing when the washer dryer came in very handy. So good we are going back next year.

My self and my husband and 14yr old daughter booked the one bed apt for 3 nights recently The place is fab the views the sound of the sea the location and the accommodation are all 5* . The only gripe is the sofa bed in the living room, maybe a bit of padding over the spring's please :O) a heavier person would feel very uncomfortable I know these beds are not in general a 100% comfortable but they can be improved on .Thanks for the early check in Dermot it was very much appreciated keep up the great standard's.

we stayed two nights in the one bedroom apartment and had a wonderful stay, combined it with a seaweed bath for the ultimate relaxing weekend break. Apartment was really well appointed, lovely big comfortable bed, great kitchen, bathroom etc etc. Super clean. Couldn't have asked for more. Happy to recommend, we will certainly be back!

We booked all three apartments for a hen weekend and enjoyed the "Girls on Tour" package. From check-in to check-out we were all very well looked after by both Steve and Dermot (owner). All the apartments are modern, spacious with excellent views and finished to a very high standard. We had a combination of the treatments available in our package ie mini facial, inidan head and the seaweed baths which were excellent and very relaxing. Absolute fabulous weekend for all of us and we would definitely come back and torture Steve and Dermot again! Would really recommend the apartments and seaweed baths for anyone as suitable for all!

Booked the "Two's Company" package at Soak Seaweed Bath for a girlie break away and stayed here in Snooze Apartments for two nights. It was fab!

We arrived and were greeted by Dermot (owner) who was most friendly and welcoming, checked in with ease and that set the scene for the remainder of the break. A quick tour around of Soak, Soothe, Sip and Snooze left me feeling most impressed!

We stayed in the top floor one bedroom apartment which was overlooking the sea and backed onto the beautiful Mourne Mountains / Donard Park. The view was amazing, the windows at the front were Velux roof windows, in through which the sun shone and heated the apartment during the day, which was lovely to come in home to! And it really did feel homely! :)

I was most impressed with the presentation of the apartment, it was spotlessly clean, a good size, and very well equipped with leather sofa (which also turned into a sofa bed) flat screen TV, dining area, well equipped kitched if you wanted to dine in, fridge-freezer, dishwasher and washer/drier. The bedroom was well furnished and was very comfortable, I had a fantastic couple of nights sleep!

The apartments also had wi-fi and this enabled us to check out what was around locally to eat and drink! However, Dermot was on hand to provide some great advice! Nothing was too much trouble in asking for recommendations for the local area.

With gas central heating, the apartment heated quickly in the evenings and we had hot water as and when required.

We had a seaweed bath and also a full body massage in our package, and all I can say is "wow!" The seaweed bath was amazing, we had a twin room, so we could chat, although while listening to the music we had brought with us, you can't help but drift away into bliss! It was so relaxing, and was a total de-stress after a manic few weeks in work! We had the full body massage the following day, and it was fabulous. Followed by the most delicious hot chocolate and raspberry and white chocolate scones, we really didnt want to leave! I was totally revitalised and relaxed.

We enjoyed Newcastle on our last evening and were already planning a return visit over a cocktail!

All in all, it was a very relaxing short break and I have highly recommended it to friends and family. It most definitely is Newcastle's best kept secret!

Room Tip: Top Floor apartment views are fabulous!

Myself and my girlfriend stayed for 3 nights the week before Christmas. We stayed in the top floor apartment and enjoyed a sea weed bath and a full body massage each. My girlfriend also got a facial from the full list of beauty treatments. The main living space of the apartment had roof windows overlooking the sea on one side and the very impressive landscape of the Mourne Mountains and Donard Forest on the other. Dermot (the owner) was very welcoming and friendly with great knowledge of local places to eat and drink.
The flat screen TV in the apartment enabled me to hook up my laptop and watch movies off it. The free wi-fi was a bit on and off on the top floor though.
The treatments were very relaxing and being able to play a CD of our own during them was a great touch.
The bed was very comfy and the gas central heating meant hot water anytime.
Very relaxing short break and I will have no problem going back again.

Room Tip: For couples, top floor was perfect!
