I stayed in the one bedroom apartment for 3 consecutive nights for business. The apartment has a garage with an inside door to access the unit - very welcome in very wet weather. I ate in the Restaurant and had room service. Fantastic pub food and great service. Security is excellent.
Lovely to have a jug of chilled water in 'fridge on arrival. Very good laundry in unit of which I certainly made use. I bumbled my way through wash and dry cycles - a bit hit and miss without instructions. Room service was excellent with all pantry and bathroom items topped up. Lots of towels and pillows provided which I rate highly. Bed was reasonably comfortable.
The apartment was right on the main road, so was noisy. I would request a less noisy one down the back next time - although I'm not sure if they are1 bedroom.
The bathroom was a difficulty for me. It had a deep spa - bath, but with a shower over it. I found it difficult and frankly unsafe, to enter and exit. I repeatedly banged my knee and once, lost my footing. I appreciated the spa, however as I shower much more often - I would have passed on a spa and opted for a walk-in shower. The bathroom too, had appalling lighting - a light over the mirror is an absolute must when there is no or little natural light.
The only other negative I would mention is the lack of a desk/table with power point access for laptops. Most people use them these days - I certainly needed the (Free!) internet access and use of my computer. The table is in the middle of the room so I had my power cord stretched across to the kitchen. While there is a table across a wall - there is no power point access. A point under this bench would have been handy for the iron, too.
The power point is an easy fix, but I'm not sure about the shower!
Over all a comfortable stay, however I may look elsewhere for my next stay coming up soon.
