Stayed in a lovely one bedroom apartment, where each room was tastefully decorated and incredibly spacious. The bedroom had a walk-in dressing room, which was a pleasant surprise! A nice comfortable bed too.
The kitchen is well equipped, with a washer/dryer that proved extremely useful after a week’s travelling. Although I did not take photos I can confirm that those on the hotel’s website (March 2014) are very much a true likeness.
A special little extra was some complimentary port, which I personally didn’t try but certainly appreciated the offer.
There is a window between the bathroom and bedroom that allows for TV viewing (if so inclined) from the comfort of the double spa bath. But there is an electric blind for privacy as well. I was impressed with the large thick towels (they hadn't lost their fluffiness).
The only downside to this apartment was that it looked over the car park (I was on the ground floor). Noise was not an issue that I noted, but when the curtains were open it did mean you were on display to anyone and everyone using the car park. Something to increase the privacy, without plunging the room into darkness, is the only suggestion I would have to improve this apartment.
