Beautiful location and very friendly staff. I have read some of the less than complimentary reviews and dont understand them, our stay was very pleasing.

Thank you so much for your honesty, we really do try very hard to ensure all guests are warmly welcomed and apartments are presented well - staff do work around the property and not always in the reception area but a press of the door bell will bring them running!!! It was a pleasure having you stay with us. All the best

Seriously, you were in a bedsit with shared bathroom, every guest house/small hotel always asks for guests to be considerate by washing up your own plates and placing your garbage in the bins - this is standard practice - staff are not employed to wash up after you, if you want this type of accomodation best to stay at the 5 star hotels.

We had a fairly small apartment which was clean but a little dark as it was inside other buildings. the price was reasonable taking this into consideration. Bear in mind that all the rooms are different and vary from small rooms to fairly large apartments and you get what you pay for.

Exactly right, you do get what you pay for, we have options for all budgets, beautiful studio and 1 bedroom apartments with views or the budget bedsits which are suitable for 1-2 persons watching their dollars - the choice is entirely up to the guest, thanks for the review.
