Friends of ours stayed in a hotel room which overlooked the car park and ferry terminal and had tired furniture even though the property is only 4 years old. The is pool large and welcoming but is not heated so too cold to swim in winter. The 2 bedroom we were in had stained furniture, cups and saucers but no mugs ( and only two of them despite other crockery having settings for 4. No items that one might need in an apartment on holiday like jug for water, sald bowl etc. Huge kitchen but not well equipped.
Cleaners just pull up the bed sheets and change towels, dirty glasses were left where they were. The 2 bedroom backed onto a road and the sliding door was not double glazed so early morning traffic was noisy, this was coupled with being able to hear the ins and outs of the family in the apartment below and adjacent even when we were in the living area ( with the doors open). The property has a lovely feel when you go in but lets you down when you get into the rooms/apartments. Certainly not 4.5 - 5 star.
The secure Car park was so secure that it almost never worked for us and had no button to press to speak to staff, so had to trek back around to reception to get keys re-cut. Once inside the car park there was rat droppings all throughout which didn't set a good impression!
The apartments are a long way from reception and have no lift so more elderley folk may want to ask to stay closer to reception. The rest of Maggie however was beautiful and the full moon party ( which draws 1000's to the Xbase backpackers), nowhere near as noisy as you may expect! Sorry Peppers but this time you didn't live up to your reputation!
Having stayed at Bright Point across the way previously I would certainly recommend it over Peppers.
