We stayed in 2 different apartments and had 2 entirely different experiences, my advice is to view the apartment before committing if at all possible. First night was in #11 on the second floor which was really amazing, the other occasion was in #5 on the first floor which was less so. It was winter and during a cold snap, in the second apartment the under floor heating in the lounge didn't work, neither did the heater, the TV was faulty with a crackling sound and somebody in the apartment above seem to be either jumping up and down or bouncing a ball, very intrusive, the noise form the parking lot was also pretty loud. The first apartment (#11) was a great experience, warm, comfortable and well equipped with coffee, milk and a bottle of port and it is far enough removed from the parking area and restaurants to be peaceful.
I think that in winter the north facing apartments get more sun (we were in South Quays, north facing), the ones across the canal in North Quays which face south were in the shade. Probably in the summer the opposite could be true though. But it does seem to be well worthwhile choosing your apartment carefully. Overall we had a good stay and the value is very good.
