We stayed here for 5 nights in a two bedroom apartment. I've lost count of the number of times I've read a description of accommodation when booking, only to be disappointed on arrival. Not so this time. This lived up to expectations. The apartment was spacious and comfortable and had all the essential facilities required for self catering. The main bedroom is roomy with a large king-sizes bed. The small bedroom has two single beds which were firm but comfortable.
In the area are a number of restaurants and cafes so if you don't want to spend your time cooking you have a wide choice of places to eat right on your doorstep.
The staff were always helpful and we extended our stay by a couple of ours to fit in with our flight times.
A further plus is that the free "Connector" bus stops right outside the apartments and takes you into the city centre in less than 10 minutes. Alternatively you can stroll through the parks and along the river bank. This takes about 20 to 30 minutes.
The only negative point is that on occasion the flight path for the airport brings planes overhead. This happened on two mornings at around 6 o'clock. All in all it's a minor point unless you're a very light sleeper.
We were on the ground floor and looking up the flights of stairs leading to levels 2 and 3 I was glad of that as the stairs looked steep and there are no lifts. So if you are less than fully fit it might be prudent to go for a ground floor apartment. Just a thought.
