  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
One of our best accomodations ever

Our stay was excellent. The property exceeded our expectations. Great value for money and the location of the property was great. 2 min from the bus station and close to major landmarks. All staff was very helpful and kind and the place was clean and very well equiped with everything you need. I would totally recomand staying at any of their properties as they have multiple hotels and apartments. Really nothing to complain about.

  • Liked: Cleanliness

The original apartment we had was not very satisfactory or what was expected. But after we made this clear to management, we were able to change for a much better apartment. Very pleased with the service received overall. Although would have helped to know services such as Sauna was chargeable before hand. Otherwise, overall we had a pleasant stay.

Great Stay for the price

The apartments are actually spread around near the main building and you are taken to your building once you have checked in. We were staying in a lovely big apartment wiht balcony which was excellent value for the price we paid. There was no pool or restaurant in our building so I feel the images are a bit misleading. The bathroom and kitchen were fitted to a high standard. There is no washing machine in the apartment but there is a wonderful laundry service on Sir Ponsonby Street where you can drop your stuff off in the morning and they will wash it and dry it for you the same day for €8 a load. There are lots of little mini supermarkets around, some wont take cards so be aware. Wifi reception was excellent and really appreciated. The reception staff were extremely helpful and very hard working. thank you

't expect much, nothing great except the location.

I don't generally write reviews but thought it was worth my time and effort to do so this time. Let me start with the positives first: 1) Great location - but don't expect views or rooms as shown in the pictures on their site. Walking distance to bus stops, cruise harbour, restaurants and shops. 2) Apartment size was good and spacious 3) Some of the staff - especially the house keeping very friendly. Now the negatives: 1) The apartment was not clean and had several issues, like ACs not working in 2 of the 3 bedroom units. Finally Alex, the manager changed our apartment and the fortunately this all all ACs were working. 2) The kitchen lacked basics - for an apartment of 6, we had only 3 plates, no glasses for drinking water. The cooker was faulty and everytime we started the oven, the lights would go off the circuit breaker tripped. 3) All rooms have singled beds and the staff join 2 beds to create a double bed. No proper duvets provided despite the cold weather and what they term is blankets are actually polyester throws we use in UK. Mattresses are very bad and all of the us severe back ache every morning when we woke up. 4) The phone in the apartment was not working and despite several complaints, it was not fixed. 5) We had electricity issues in the complex when there were no lights in the apartments. No emergency lights provided. 6) House Keeping staff not provided with gloves by the hotel management. Hence they don't clean the basin and toilets well.
