“Not all we hoped for.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013

We had booked three apartments for three nights well in advance of our visit, so it was a bit strange on arrival to be given the keys by someone at a front desk who had nothing to do with the management, and could have been a bit friendlier. Even more surprising was the fact that two apartments were quite close together on level 4, and the third was on level 6. Regardless of the height, none of the apartments had the sort of roof top view advertised so nicely on the web.
Well OK. Apart from those issues, the apartments were quite nice. The furniture and fittings weren't too bad. despite one bed being about 6 inches off the floor. Easier to fall into than to get into.
The other negative was car parking. We booked and paid extra for this for our two vehicles. They both spent the first night in an open lot around the corner with zero security, then we managed to get one vehicle moved into the undercover car park.
In summary the place was OK, but it certainly did not meet the expectations generated by the advertising.

Room Tip: Ask which floor you will be located on if you expect a view.

Took awhile to find it as name on building is different to booking. We we given an apartment that looked over the back of some grotty buildings. Certainly not the city view we had expected. He room is tired,rundown and needs updating. It is not a 4 or 5 star place, the location is great, near shops,but the car park is not really secure. It's in the open to he side of building on next street! Bed very uncomfortable. Would not stay again

These appartments are located in a fantastic location and have amazing views of the city. We were given an appartment on floor 13 which was great!

The appartment was also a very good size and was nicely decorated.

Unfortunately the wow factor diminished a bit of us when we found a mouldy Dominos pizza and Mcdonalds leftovers in the wardrobe in our bedroom. This was reported to the reception but they did not seem to care much at all.

Overall the appartments are great if you are looking for something close to the city centre and they were fine for our 1 night stayover however the cleanliness and service was a big let down.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a high floor

We selected this based on previous reviews and the fact it had won awards. The awards were years ago and they definitely have not spent a cent on this place since. Rooms were not clean to a standard you will expect, apartment which we had needed considerable maintenance. There are much better places to stay. However the cafe on the second floor where we had breakfast was excellent. Nothing to do with the hotel. The car parking is around corner from the apartments. the apartments are also not easy to find.

On arriving, the parking was done immediately by the lovely man on reception, we thought it was a great idea having underneath parking. The apartments themselves need a little paint job here and there and are NOT very well equipped for dishes and cutlery etc if staying longer, but we found it a very pleasant and welcoming stay. Plenty of space, the floor to ceiling windows are fab and the spa bath was lovely.. very relaxing, quiet stay and would CERTAINLY return to stay again. We ordered breakfast but actually didn't make it downstairs in time due to my partner being slightly fragile, from our night out at a family party. Would recommend these apartments to friends and family. We shall be returning for sure x

Room Tip: we faced onto the back of the building, would have loved a top floor, for the views-but were on floo...

These apartments are definitely lovely and well located!! (Only thing i would warn if your walking home at night the lighting on streets is really bad - but this is not fault of the aparments). I enjoyed our stay, I did find it over priced a little - £179.00, this is due to the check out at 10am. I think its too early - they charge £10 per hour there after - but they can't guarantee a late check out until AFTER 10am, meaning you have to be ready anyway just in case. The first member of staff we met was quite sharp towards one of my friends when she told him she stayed there a while back and check out was 11 - he more or less called her a liar. The night porter was lovely though - very friendly and accommodating!
