Sad face IconDisliked: Amenities
I'm very disappointed in my stay due to be given the wrong room not to mention I booked 12 months ago and was using the room for my photos for my wedding and I was explained I would have a penthouse apartment with 2 King beds and 2 bunk beds. I was unable to access pool facilities even after submitting the paper work and the person who delivered our keys could hardly speak a word of English

The apartment was well designed and in a great location (loud buskers was an issue on 2 nights but that's the city) and we loved the pool land ability to easily explore the city. However, the condition of the apartment was our first issue -not vacuumed, sticky floor tiles, lots of marks and damage to walls, dishwasher would not finish a cycle (5 hours and counting), microwave not working, limited cleaning products and fridge was frosted over. They cleaners came back to vacuum and clean tiles after i called which was good but imposed on our experience. Secondly, communication was very poor. I struggled to get in contact with anyone as main number rang outand any contact was via hidden numbers so couldn't reply. Only when I complained strongly via email did I get a call back. Then I wanted an extension for another night and it took multiple phone calls, emails and 2 days to conform if it was possible. We enjoyed our stay but the experience was tarnished by the really poor customer experience and condition of the apartment.

great weekend overall, little improvements needed
Great location, walking distance to amazing cafes and restaurants, loads of things to keep busy. breath taking views. over all clean and well finished. no locks on any doors. communication needs more work - unable to contact landline number on multiple occasions plus unanswered emails prior to checkin. the two extra beds had broken slats which made it very uncomfortable to sleep, guests had to put the mattress directly onto the floor. Pool/gym/sauna were inaccessible until after you did an induction.. which is only scheduled after 8pm which meant we were only able to use the facilities 1 out of the 2 days.
