Clean, quiet. Kitchen / cooking facilities along with washer/dryer was well received. Close to public transport & local restaurants within walking distance. Value for money. Highly recommended.

Really enjoyed our stay here. Trinity is a favourite of ours and the location was perfect, walkable to all cafes and restaurants and beach. It’s obviously been quiet due to Covid but the cleaning of the property could have been better in bathrooms and the balcony was filthy. A quick sweep meant we could sit outside but it was very grubby and needs a good wash down (entrance balcony does too). Great pool and the kids loved it.

Amenities were great, amazing pool. Units had a few issues which got fixed. The worst part is the reception is not open (COVID reasons) they run an offsite answering service. We rang multiple times to try and confirm check in, report a broken dryer and washing machine and all they could tell us is that an email had been sent reporting the problem. We waited days with no information, rang multiple times, eventually it got fixed without any communication to us. Disappointing considering we were staying for 2 weeks and needed these services

Hi James In regards to your review the office hours during COVID are 8.30am to 12pm Monday to Friday, to limit contact between people as per what the government have repeatedly advised. After reporting the dryer not working this was rectified within 24 hours of the first query, we were never advised about an issue with the washing machine and the washing machine seems to be working fine. Apologies that we did not leave a note in regards to the fix to the dryer. Regards
