Perfect location and well equipped for self catering. Looks recently refurbed, so extremely well presented with comfortable beds. Hosts were kind and helpful. Only negative was, stated daily service, we had a partial service on our second morning.

Two thumbs up!
We only stayed one night but it was very spacious, comfortable and clean. We arrived after office hours but reception everything was ready for us. Portacot was already set up upon arrival which was good. My only gripe was it would have been nice to have individual heaters in the bedrooms instead of relying on just the main one in the lounge (although it eventually did heat up the whole apartment, it just took a little while). Good value for money. Will stay again.
