My boyfriend and I stayed here for a valentines treat. The location is fantastic, right on top of the mailbox complex with lots of restaurants and even a Tesco express to buy ingredients from. Also not a bad location with regards to the train station. Unfortunately we had a view of an office block instead of the pretty canals and all of the working people could see straight into our apartment.
The apartment itself is lovely, very modern, nicely laid out and fully equipped. The TV has room for improvement, we had to move the sofas forward in order to see but the sofas were nice and comfy, can't complain! The kitchen area was really nice with a dining table. We cooked our own meal and found we had everything we needed. Some of the plates were pretty grubby but that could have been a result of te dishwasher.
The bathroom was also very nice but as luck would have it, we had no hot water! By the time we noticed we thought it was too late to ring the phone number we were given and being late risers (10am is check out) we didn't have much time in the morning to get the problem fixed. Therefore a rather painful ice cold shower served.
Apart from a few grubby plates and no hot water we had a lovely stay at a good price. We paid £66.50 for a one bedroom apartment which is actually cheaper than many hotels! We really appreciated being able to cook a romantic meal together and having an apartment to ourselves. I would recommend these apartments for a one night stay or for a group but it is not the height of luxury. We were also told by the receptionist that we would get a partial refund for the broken boiler but we were fobbed off with a 25% discount on our next stay via email- I don't know who is benefitting more from this repeat business??
