I am currently staying at the apartments and have been for 2 weeks due to relocating to the region. I have been extremely impressed by the quality of the rooms, very comfortable, fast Wi Fi, great views and best of all an excellent service. They also provided me with a large lockup facility to store my bicycles. There are laundry...
