The receptionist barely spoke English. The apartment was old and tatty. Everything felt grubby! Only plus - the sheets and towels were at least clean.

This place is not anything like the photographs, so not be deceived. We ended up getting a full refund due to the state of the room, mixed with other issues. Another tenant had let us know in passing that it is under new owner/management and since then have received nothing but complaints. Do not book here, it's horrible; save yourself the stress and money of having to find another place last minute.

Does not match the pictures.

Management were great and as helpful as they could be but the apartments are individually owned and the owner of our apartment does not spend money on it. You couldn’t sit on the couches because of the lumps and broken springs. The queen bed was hard as a rock with no give in it whatsoever. The only positive about this apartment was the location.

Although a cheap accommodation option it's doesn't mean that the room should be infested with cockroaches and no TV remote or shower curtain. Can't talk to staff because the interactions I had were all with staff that possessed little to no English language. Car park is tight but is safe and well lite. Might be tough for elderly or the disabled as it's stairs into reception from street (didn't see any ramp) stairs from room to car park, stairs around common areas, there maybe ramps but I didn't see them.

Hotel was infested with cockroaches.

The appartment i stayed in was infested with cockroaches and its droppings, all over furniture, walls, kitchen, flooring ....... The bathroom vest was not working, always foggy after a shower or after using the washing machine. I notified the staff but the problems continued.
