I would highly recommend to stay in this hotel. I loved the location of the hotel which was on the sea front. The staff was very friendly and cooperative. Very clean and spacious rooms. The bed was very comfortable. Every basic necessities were available in the hotel.

Congress apartments is a block of recently converted buildings very close to the town centre and packed full of facilities. The apartments are opposite the congress theatre in an area of hotels and apartment buildings. On street parking is available but it could take a few minutes to find a parking spot. Reception is easy to find and manned on...

Do not stay here. We broke one wine glass (very obviously a Sainsbury's own economy wine glass) and they automatically charged the bank £36. The process of getting the money back has been shocking. They are awful, also if you appreciate your sleep bring some extra towels to shove under the door (there's a huge gap) and it's very echoey...

This apartment was quite nice and good for the price company to alternatives. The bed was very comfortable, we had AC, sky TV and the shower was incredible. On the downside, the apartment was very small compared to pictures we saw when booking on Expedia. The customer service wasn't great at all, as hardly anyone that runs these apartments can...

Friendly staff, lovely room/apartment, clean & smart. However the apartment we had was a LOT smaller than the ones shown on the website which was a shame. Also the room we had you frustratingly had to really slam the door otherwise it wouldn't close & so we were worried about waking up other guests.

We are here now. Got here Sunday, checked in to an executive apartment. Knew it was a double bed affair, but expected more space and a table and sofa bed. On querying this, the staff were really helpful; they moved a table in (the previous tenant wanted it taken out) and informed me that the agents I booked through were...

The manager seems to get a bit defensive in review sites so to be clear... WE DID NOT STAY....I cannot review the actual hotel. (And therefore be threatened with legal action for 'incorrect reviewing') However. I booked a room through Expedia. I wanted somewhere we could be self catering and just chill to celebrate my birthday and our wedding anniversary....

I would highly recommend these apartments. We booked a studio which was very well equipped. The bed was a bit on the small side, but was fairly comfy with enough pillows. There was a small table and two chairs for eating, a large flat screen tv with sky channels and free Wi-Fi. The kitchen area had plenty of cutlery, plates,...
