    Very good

    Apartment was clean and close to city centre. Beds/sofa beds were comfortable.

    The facilities were quite basic and didn't really match the star rating in our opinion. The shower facility was useless as the water only came out when the shower head was below the level of the control, which meant kneeling down in the bath to wash our hair!

    Good location

    Smelled badly of smoke and required some minor maintenance to be undertaken

    Very good

    Very friendly, flexible and helpfull staff at hotel. Appartment suited our needs very well.

    Small things: Appartment could be cleaner - but it was ok. We had to buy a whole bag toiletpaper for the last day as there only was one roll to begin with - no extra.

    Very good

    Apartments not where they show on the map. The key collection at the Abbey hotel is a bit of a hassle and you do need a taxi if arriving from station. There were three of us in our late 50's, and found the apartments a bit of a hike to the Princess Street area, so these apartments would suit a slightly younger or fitter age group.

    Its location. The water flow of the shower was good but the rail that the shower head was attached to threatened to detach itself from the wall at any moment. Shower curtain was clean.

    Tired dated furnishings. Poorly equipt kitchen. Oven and grill pan were dirty. Felt springs through the hard matress on bed. Pillows and duvet were old and very flat. No remote control for the dvd. Fan heater in bathroom was loud enough to wake the dead.

    Brenda was very helpful and handled our poor experience very professionally. Living room was comfortable. Bed linens were clean. We chose this place only because it offered parking.

    We did not like the location as we did not feel safe at night. We had many complaints. The building was not welcoming in the entry or stairway. Felt like a hostel. It was dirty and smelled and I would not recommend this apartment. There is no lift so be prepared to walk up stairs. No view at all. Did not like having to go to the Abbey Hotel to check in then find the apartement in another part of the city. If we did not have a car we would not have stayed here. You have to pay to make a call to the hotel if you need something, the phone will not work unless you put money in it. Would be nice to have a direct link to the front desk. We did cancel one of our two nights as we were not happy with the apartment.

    Very clean and comfortable with great facilities - washing machine etc. Very close to all attractions. Well organised booking process. Good info provided on available restaurants, grocery stores and so on. All up a very positive experience and would definitely stay again.

    No lift.

    Fabulous

    It is quiet, and yet close to the city centre and major bus routes.

    There are a few things I don't like about the hotel: 1. There is no facial tissue in the apartment, which is not convenient. 2. This is the first aprtament/hotel I have ever stayed that does not provide hand/facial towels (those smaller ones); there are the regular big towels. 3. guests should be warned that check-in place is different from the apartment they are going to stay.
