We stayed here over Christmas 2012. We had a baby with us so I was looking for an apartment type accomodation. We found this at what I think is a reasonable price, you get a standard room at the Hyatt for a little more then what we paid here. The apartment was decent, kitchen was clean and stocked with dishes, glasses, cutlery etc, and there was a microwave as well. Hidden laundry was also in the kitchen area. The sofa is a foldout bed which my husband used as we co sleep with baby, which was not comfortable. The main bed in the bedroom was 2 big single beds pushed together so it was more like a king bed and was comfortable. Flat screen TVA in lounge and bedroom, 1 air con unit in lounge.
Bathroom was nice and clean with liquid soap and body wash provided in their dispensers. No bar soap or bottles, I prefer liquid soap anyway so that was fine. Bathroom wasn't big, and also no bathtub which again we didn't mind. Little annoying was the fact that the bathroom door was behind the bedroom door so u had to close the bedroom door to enter bathroom door.
The carpet didn't look all that clean to me abd the towels should be replaced with softer plush towels as the ones we had were threadbare. Overall I found the apartment fine and livable.
We didn't use any of the facilities but as I understand it the facilities are located inthe sister hotel. The cafe in the lobby was closed. Secure parking is a bonus. The lady at reception when I checked in was not pleasant or friendly. The manager was lovely and very helpful.
Location is more isolated, there is not much around to do. But we had a car and were visiting relatives so that didn't bother us at all.
