Lock broken on sliding door, was moved to another room as soon as reception notified. Need more signage in car park to locate lifts.

Great location. Only 10ish minutes from the city. We had a 2 bedroom apartment. Plenty of room and had 2 bathrooms. Nespresso coffee machine and was a nice surprise.

Good location. Lifts broke down with us in. Parking was on property, but others took our spot (eventually found a new spot with very responsive after hours reception)

Overall adequate facilities. I will mention though that you have to pre-book parking despite advertising ‘free parking’. We were left with 1 night out of 5 without parking. Just a bit of a poor setup. The 3 bedroom apartment was equipped with 1 small split system which meant the bedrooms were incredibly hot and stuffy. You can’t open the windows as the sound from the other apartments ‘bounce’ around the internal courtyard. The location is fantastic and walking to distance to everything you need.

I loved the setup. Everything I needed and fantastic customer service. Maybe consider a technology to cast to TV sets in room for kids shows etc?
