Booked apartment 7 months ago only to arrive and be told they had non available. While waiting for alternative accommodation (which never materialised) many guests complaining. Would not waste your money on this hole

Agree with many of the reviews unfortunately recently. Quite shabby apartments and rushed understaffed reception. Our main complaint was that when we checked in, our room had no sheets or towels. We never received any on check in day after multiple trips to reception with no help. We ended up staying at the Jury's inn nearby and when we came... More

Okay, so me and partner arrived at 6pm, we were told that there were no rooms even though we'd booked 2 weeks in advance. The receptionist was having a meltdown right in front of us, then was on the phone to his boss who could be heard saying 'please don't leave, we need you' and we'd both had long days... More

Basic accommodation, in need of refurbishment. Building site next door had spot lights shining all night, and curtains didn't fit properly. Be prepared to walk up and down the stairs, as 1 lift is not sufficient at busy times. If you are after basic accommodation local to the city centre, these apartments are great, especially with the secure parking.

We booked a 4 person room for myself and 2 kids. We arrived and opened the door to a maid attempting to change light bulbs. With no luck. The whole apartment stuck of smoke and strong smell of cannabis . This never went away the whole time we where there. The lights barely worked and no heating was working. I'm... More

Booked a premium suite 9th floor apartment with friends for a weekend of concerts and shopping. First impressions were a very overworked receptionist struggling to cope with a bombardment of complaints. After finally booking in we used the 1 lift to apartment. First bedroom on suite had blinds with gaps so when getting changed people walking past could clearly see... More

We arrived on Friday afternoon - the guy on reception spent 5 minutes bashing a plastic key on the desk to break it apart so he could put in a new hand-written piece of paper in with the room number on. When we got to the room, the key didn’t work…so we went back down and he came back up…he... More

Major Health and Safety concerns with our appartment, no luck with trying to get a refund or even a response to some awful health and safety risks. Extremely upset by how we've been treated. Not by frontline staff but the Management (or lack of it should I say. I cannot understand how this company is allowed to trade!
