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,...

Really surprised how lovely our apartment was. It looked to good to be true. I booked two rooms but on arrival we had been allocated a family room (double bed and two singles) which was sufficient for our family and our labradoodle!. Great facilities, easy check in/out. Only draw backs, on street parking (but there was plenty), the floors in...

Recently renovated these apartments have lovely marble floors and well equipped kitchens. The service at reception was also good. Whilst they are well done it was a bit weird having the bed in what feels like the middle of the kitchen. Unfortunately the smoke alarm fitting flashes all night over head. The double bed is on the small side and...

I couldn't recommend this place more . Friendly staff, spacious suite, great facilities , milk in the fridge, coffee tea and sugar , fully equipped kitchen . Comfy bed, great night sleep. Parking opposite as long as not on double yellow lines . Sky tv, HD channels and movie channels. I'd stay here again for sure!

We've just spent a night at the Congress Apartments. These are situated very close to the Winter Gardens & a short walk to the beach. The cost of the room was very reasonable so we didn't have high expectations. But what a surprise - for a 'no-frills' hotel, this place was great! The building has just undergone renovation to a...

My girlfriend and I wanted to get away to the coast and had a look on Expedia and these apartments looked nice from the photos and cheap and cheerful so we booked up straight away for two nights. We was made aware of the check in times which was from 3 til 9. Before our arrival we received an email...

Nice rooms, friendly staff but that is where it ends, firealarm goes off every 2-3 days in the middle of the night, hotel still under renovation in morning ...ie don't expect to get much sleep here, when comes to cleaning the rooms, we'll they don't, accept change towels, Internet works about 20% of the time, much room for improvement.

Stayed for New Years very pleased with the accommodation. Very surprised that they offer free sky TV, which is handy when the English weather strikes. Another bonus was the free wifi which very reliable and fast. Our room was very bright, from the large bay window. Kitchen was well equipped with new utensils, crockery and pans. The only negative I...

Really didn't enjoy this stay, the rooms were nothing like the photos. Recommend only for a cheap overnight but nothing more. We booked an executive studio which was tiny, could barely find room for our bags, but the photos showed large rooms with space for a dining table. Wouldn't book again.

Stayed here for 2 weeks. The room was great and well designed, very modern with a fully integrated kitchen. The wifi in the room was really good. Everywhere was clean and lots of little extras were provided. Daily housekeeping was provided. The staff were very helpful and friendly! Would stay again :)
