Lexden
Reviewed 26 October 2012

I stayed at Lexden for 6 nights & and am very happy that I did. The apartment has a stylish and modern decor and is beautifully secluded from the main house. There is lots of light - which is a great bonus. The bathroom is beautiful. Although it is set off a busy road, there is absolutely no noise from the road. The apartment has covered parking and everything feels very secure.

The WiFi was great to have - although pretty slow by the European speeds that I am used to. Breakfast served in the apartment at a time of my choice is a great touch.

It is easy to get to Hilton, Howick or downtown PMB from Lexden. I used the Virgin Active gym at Cascades which is about 5 minutes drive & there is another one on Victoria which is also about 5 minutes drive. 'Wylie Park' and 'Worlds View' are within easy walking distance if you like walking.

The apartment is perfect for singles or couples.

I would happily stay at Lexden again.

Hi Rob,
Thank you for our very first review of Lexden on Trip Advisor. We hope you are well and still travelling lots. Perhaps it's time you returned to Lexden. Unfortunately our private parking bay for the apartment where you stayed has been converted into an office for our growing staff!! We do however have more rooms now.
Thanks again and regards from The Lexden Team
