    We stayed in a two-bedroom apartment for a week and had a most enjoyable stay. The apartment was clean, well stocked and comfortable. It was handy having a full size fridge, dishwasher, washing machine and dryer especially since we were staying for an extended period....More

    The property is a fair distance from restaurants, reasonable view and good location near park and Esplanade. However the rooms are tired and not truly clean. Very basic accommodation. Internet does not function and little support and no support at night. Better elsewhere.
