Spacious 2 bedroom apartment, lovely welcome breakfast pack (bacon, eggs, bread, milk) choice of cereals & tea, hot choc & biscuits too, all complimentary. Apartment is across the road, down small alleyway and up some steep steps to a outdoor area. Would've been awkward if people in other apartment as you have to walk through their outdoor space. The smoke alarm is near cooker so bacon sandwiches at 1am woke everyone!!! Also, large ventilators on the roof at back of apartment woke me just before 7am! There's a pub/cafe below apartment and they're busy with breakfasts etc.

It was all okay but a food and drink festival was in progress. The staff did apologise but it wasn't possible to get anything to eat on arrival. The body wash in the shower didn't work either.
