Secure off-street parking was very convenient. We enjoyed a nice view of Castle Hill. Our 'standard room' was a bit small, but just enough for a couple.

Disappointed, not an apartment in spite of the name. Bed and bathroom only, no kitchenette, not even a teaspoon to stir the coffee with. Advised reception and told there were no other rooms available .
