Stayed here for one night and we were both really impressed with the apartment. The communal areas were spotless and it was lovely to be right in the centre of town. Despite being by a main road and above a restaurant we didn't find it noisy, nor did we hear a peep out of our neighbours.
We were in a studio apartment which was, of course, bijou, but perfectly suited our needs. Unlike other reviewers we were happy with the amount of cooking utensils, wine glasses etc. It was great to have a full sized hob and oven too. For anyone staying longer than a few days there is also a washing machine.
I was staggered by the value of this place - it was cheaper than the Premier Inn, yet in a far better position and with better amenities. The only reason this review is a 4* and not 5* is that there were a few bits of the apartment which were a little rough around the edges - chipped paint, split door frame etc. The pillows were also quite thin for us, though I accept that it is personal preference. We also had problems with the tv pixelating and freezing but that could have just been atmospherics. None of this would deter me from returning for one moment, I loved staying there and wish we'd stayed longer.
