Firstly let me just say that this place is very nice indeed. We booked a Superior Apartment at a very reasonable price (on an offer at the time). The living area, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom are all very well fitted and maintained to a high standard. And there are no complaints at all about the standard of the venue whatsoever. The location couldn't get any better either being just off George St in the middle of town.
On the downside, as has already been mentioned in other reviews is the noise to the rear of the property. At the rear of the property is a back street which is used by the neighbouring hotel and restaurants. The noise is not from these venues directly but from the rubbish collection in the early mornings and deliveries throughout the day. The apartment obviously has very good thermal insulation as it got uncomfortably hot at times even though the heating was off during the entirety of our stay. This led us to open the windows which in turns doesn't help keep the noise out!
If you decide to book here ask for an apartment in the front of the building. BEAR IN MIND that the Superior Apartments are only at the rear of the building, something we found out once we had checked out. It would have been nice if the venue had informed us of this before we had arrived, as we did specifically ask for accommodation in the front of the building.
Pros: Clean, high quality, luxurious.
Cons: Noisy and rooms can get uncomfortably hot.
