Spacious 2 bed apartment, but a bit sparsely furnished and in need of an update, as it’s a bit dated.

8/10 Very good

Spacious apartments with kitchen & balcony. Good bathrooms. Great position on the water front and short walk to town centre. Good cafe on site. Apartments a little worn with paint work and carpet getting old. They did seem a little bare & sparse. Would certainly book there again though.

Too noisy
The motel room balcony was useless. A tall bar table and two stools. You would never sit out there. The rooms are kind of attached to next door and the doors cannot be closed quietly. Also a laundry right next to our door. Our neighbours did washing late at night, then came and went about 6 times very early in the morning, doors banging all the way. So noisy.
