We stayed here in Feb 2013 for a couple of nights after having stayed at St Ives Apartments for a week. St Ives Apartments were beautiful.
Thank god the nights of stay weren't the other way around.
This place stunk of mould, the front door was half jammed, staircase was gloomy and hadn't seen a cleaner's brush for many a year, the carpet was putrid in the stairwell and there were spider webs everywhere.
The apartment was only marginally better - stunk of mould, tried to open a window for ventilation and the frame nearly fell out, the curtain felt like it was going to disintegrate on touch.
I am suspicious of the few really good reviews about this place - maybe there is one apartment that is up to scratch, and maybe the good reviews are false. Can't say for sure, but this is one place that's not worth gambling on getting the good rooms.
We will never stay here again - we drove past this place last week and gagged at the memory of it. This time we stayed at Quest Apartments in the city, which were as nice as St Ives.
The apartments are self rated at 3.5 star, but I would rate the one we were in as 1 star,
