The location is just great for these apartments. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment that looked out over the walkway in front of Sainsburys. It got a little noisy at times but had a great view.
The apartment we stayed in could use some updating. First, the beds weren't great. The mattress I had was very basic with a foam pad (not the same size, but smaller) over it. When traveling, if one doesn't get a good night's sleep, not much else matters.
The bathtub is very high and is hard to step in and out of to take a shower or bath. There are no grab bars, so someone with limited mobility would have a very difficult, if not impossible time taking a shower.
The upside is the staff are wonderful. Santo was wonderful to work with and tried very hard to make us comfortable. The apartment was roomy and we loved having a washing machine.
While the apartments could use a few things here and there, I would stay here again.
