Average looking property with awesome staff and features provided. Few things I noticed, the hot water equipment installed in shower was too complicated to setup even after following the instructions. Swimming pool wasn't cleaned regularly during the day, had lots of dirt and hairs floating around. The single bed provided in twin room 11 was very soft and not comfortable at all. Good clean linen and towels provided.

Clean and friendly staff. Did not like slippery tiles in bathroom and kitchen area. Small sign hidden in cubby hole to say there were slip mats available at reception i know you cant please everyone, but it is a health & safety issue. My granddaughter slipped on tiles in bathroom when having a shower. Other than that, shower was great and had a restful night we loved the spa and pool area also Thank you

Overall good value for money - the apartment was clean with all the facilities you’d need when passing through or for a short stay. Great location and will definitely use it again.

Beds were comfortable, very clean, free parking, and great blackout curtains (we got a shock when we opened them and saw how bright and sunny it was!) Pool area could do with a clean.
