5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

We had a room with a sitting area and kitchen. Idea for self catering in this expensive city. This is a two minute walk from the Main Street of the city with bars, restaurants and shops. Also the same distance from the pick up for all of the excursions.

These are lovely little apartments, very modern and equipped for self-catering. Comfortable beds, large bathroom, kitchen with fridge and glass-topped burners with good quality pans, cutlery, and crockery. French press and also a jar of coffee and individual creamers in the fridge, best coffee I had during my 12 day stay. Another property had a French press but no coffee, and it as not worth buying coffee for a short stay. We only stayed one night, our last before flying out. Was more expensive than any of our other stays, but was the lowest price I could find on a Friday night for a one-night stay. Reception staff very helpful, hotel is right in middle of main shopping district including a Bonus supermarket in easy walking distance.

We had a great stay at Swan House! Our room was large and very quiet. It was great to have the kitchenette so we could make coffee and breakfast in the morning. The bed was incredibly comfortable. The hotel is a short walk from the main street. Highly recommend!
