Reviewed 2 weeks ago for a stay in August 2017

Well equipped, nicely furnished and decorated, clean and comfortable. Quiet as away from main car/pedestrian routes but only 90 steps from sandy beach as "measured" by our eldest son and very near to range of shops and eateries. Car parking space was a real plus point - we used our car as a "shed" to store boogie boards, etc. Straightforward...

Management response:

I think you have hit the nail on the head. Content children means a happy holiday for all.

Just spent a week at The Old Museum apartment and had a lovely last minute stay, the apartment is lovely, has everything that you would need. It is comfortable and like home from home, the instructions to get keys and parking are all very straight forward and we would fully recommend booking this apartment.
