Was a great price for four adults with babies to get a 2 bedroom apartment because it has the lounge. It was not very clean, dust on surfaces and our room wasn’t serviced the next day. No mattress protectors on beds. The staff were very friendly and would help when asked. Location to skytower was great and it was easy to get to and from the motorway.

Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities
I had to wait 40 minutes to check in (this was after three pm) I should have been worried when I saw and heard a steady stream of people coming to complain about appliances not working and missing necessities. (toilet paper) Great shower... but water wouldn't drain away quickly enough, so cut shower short - worried there may be a flood. No fridge... so no milk for coffee. Bought UHT milk down the road Two power points in the kitchen not working - so used the power point for the absent fridge Limited bedding... no spare blanket....and it was cold that night. For the money that I paid... I believe I was hard done by. Wouldn't stay again

Disliked: Cleanliness
Location was good and the rooms were spacious. However, the bathroom was disgusting. It looked like it hadn't been cleaned all year. The shower was grimy and you can see moulds on the side. The toilet didn't look like it had been cleaned at all. The main outlet in the kitchen didn't work
