I had wondered what an apart hotel would offer that a hotel wouldn't.
On arrival at reception staff were welcoming and warm. A big plus for me! However, as a lone woman traveller, it was a bit disturbing that the member of staff said my room number in a fairly loud voice- this might need to be addressed. Who knows who is listening nearby?
Anyway, up to the room, and I was very impressed by the room and the kitchenette. A fridge, a dishwasher, a microwave, a little hob, cutlery and crockery in modern kitchen units. There was also a toaster!
The bathroom was a bit of a mixture. Great modern washbasin and shower, but a toilet that isn't slimline or modern. Paintwork and tiling needs to be updated.
Lovely TV with satellite, and a good table/desk. Ironing board and hair dryer. All good.
Very comfortable bed.
A GREAT plus is free wifi throughout the building.
Breakfast was rather disappointing. Continental with salami and rubbery cheese. Yoghurt, croissants, and toast, and indifferent coffee. On the plus side, the fruit salad was lovely, and so was the fruit juice and the boiled eggs!
The cereals were also good.
The main thing is that the room is excellent overall.
I will ask to stay here again!
