Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I really appreciated the location and the space in the rooms. The staff was lovely: friendly, helpful and responsive. The kitchen was very well equipped, with enough dishes, pots etc to make simple meals. The furniture was very comfortable, and I liked having a dedicated work space. It was great to have a computer, printer and all the TVs. If it was a different season, I would have also enjoyed the balcony, which was the length of the apartment. The towels were luxurious and there was plenty soap, shampoo etc. My one suggestion: The main table was rather small for a meal, and there was no light overtop to play a game or do work. Great price, great people, great value. I will definitely return.
