Some indications for improvements
Some of the receptionist had been overzealous asking for my ID repeatedly despite the fact I've been accommodated the whole week in the hotel (didn't find many smiles either). The room was not perfectly clean (I found long human hair in the bathroom). The spare room was actually small in comparison to the dimension of the apartments consenting the presence of a single bed only. The position of the hotel is actually excellent, close to any central attractions.

Terrific location but you feel a bit hemmed in.
The location is first rate and the facilities excellent and space abundant. Though the lounge suite could do with being replaced. You also feel a bit hemmed in as the bedroom window faced the corridor and the lounge area looks out onto a large building which is being refurbished. Unfortunately we had one sleepless night due to several drunken "guests" and there is nobody to report this kind of thing to after hours other than an emergency number.

Great place to stay. Only problem is the car park.
Location, very roomy and quiet.
Very good location and roomy apartments. Only problem is the entry to the car park. Very nerve wracking getting in and out.. A very tight squeeze.

A disappointing experience.
Staff were friendly and location was excellent
Unfortunately we had 2 terrible nights sleep as we were on the 5th (top) floor and the air con unit or similar (?) for the building seemed to be above our bedroom in the roof. It was so noisy that it was difficult to sleep (and I'm not a fussy sleeper). The buzz/hum of the unit was constant for our whole stay. We also got stuck in the lift at one point during our stay- and was told by the cleaner that the lift breaks down regularly. I believe the lift is being replaced soon though. Such a disappointing experience as the apartment was nice, location was great and staff were friendly. It ended up being an expensive 2 nights of no sleep. :(
