Stayed April 2022

Great "walk to town" location. Good parking and security. Noisy traffic on week mornings from bedrooms on road side but over all good value and comfortable, modern accommodation.

Stayed July 2021

We stayed together with family members, the apartment was clean and well equipped and very nice. It worked well for two couples and a child, the living area is well set up with a big sectional couch so plenty of room for all of us. The bathrooms were good, with good showers. We enjoyed our stay and would happily stay there again.

Great facilities and location. A lot of stairs so not good for young and elderly but that is stated in comments so we were aware.

Stayed December 2019

Lovely property, well maintained and well equipped. Nice outlook over the boat harbour and excellent location. Some road noise, only really noticeable at night if you are a light sleeper. Stairs are long and quite steep - would be a challenge for people with limited mobility.
