Booked an apartment for two but were offered Flat 35 which slept 4. It was on the ground floor next to the Mexican restaurant and we were a little worried the room would smell of burritos and be noisy but we didn't experience any problems at all.
The flat was a good size and had a really comfy bed (but not if you are tall), fridge, freezer and enough pots etc to self cater if you are so inclined and although the shower wasn't very powerful there was no shortage of hot water. The place is self catering so remember towels and toiletries but you can buy supplies at reception if you don't fancy the walk into town.
Helpful, friendly staff and wi-fi available in reception area, a good value choice.
People have mentioned that the outside was peeling - well good news - it was in the process of being re-painted.
