If you want comfortable, stylish accomodation without the trappings of breakfast or evening meal, ( food allergy problems?) these apartments are ideal.
On arrival a sociable and gregarious receptionist led us into a Victorian time capsule, culminating with a ride in a lift with self opening, concertina, doors. I loved it!
We stayed in number 21 which had everything two people would require for a self catering holiday, plus a wonderful view of the sea from two large windows.
It was obvious that refurbishment was in progress but we were fortunate enough to be given newly refurbished, light and airy, accomodation which housed an en suite hotel like room with the addition of a small table and chairs , plus an adjoining kitchenette with microwave, conventional cooker, fridge, cutlery, crockery, cooking utensils and sink. It was brilliant! All we needed to supply were bathroom towels.
We loved our stay, not only for the accomodation but also for the Villas close proximaty to the Spa complex and the beautiful Italian gardens. The best part of town in my opinion!
I would recommend it to all those people who enjoy the freedom to decide on their own meal itinerary but still have hotel style accomodation.
