Reviewed 9 April 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Apartment is in a fantastic location and was very clean. Was a bit noisy at night however that is to be expected in a central location. It was very convenient to get to and from Waverly and/or airport bus. Apartment was well stocked with supplies upon arrival. Would not hesitate to recommend to friends/family. Excellent value for money.

Management response:

It is unusual for guests to comment on noise as the secondary glazing in the apartment usually removes any noise pollution, perhaps the secondary glazing was inadvertently open because has it been warm recently? Regards, Glenn Ford esc Ltd
