Good views, bad smells!

Once we had located the apartments we had problems finding out how we could get hold of the keys to the apartment, this piece of information is not included within the details they give you. When we phoned up to find out how to access the apartment, etc we found out the staff didn't really seem to know how to direct you to the cafe they were based in as the directions weren't very helpful. Once we had been given the keys to the apartment I was disappointed to see that the car parking space in front of the apartment had not been completed and the were pieces of rubble and nails, etc, this has resulted in us gaining a nail within one of our tyres. Upon entering the apartment the fact that is was clean and seemed good was unfortunately overshadowed by the very strong smell of cooking from previous occupants, no amount of air freshner or fresh air could get rid of the smell and after a while it became very sickly. On the whole the apartment was good, it was clean and presentable, I wouldn't plan on cooking anything there as unfortunately items such as frying pans had been abused by previous occupants and had not been replaced afterwards. The one thing I didn't like was having to remove your own rubbish, this had to be taken down to the basement, the key to come back up didn't work so we had to exit the basement through the car park entrance, not great when you need to check out by 10.00 am.

Wake up to an Amazing view!

Very easy if you have a car, although there is a bus stop right outside if you want to use public transport. Lots of space - we only used one of the two bedrooms. Kitchen equipment very basic, but adequate for an overnight stay.

great getaway/we got a great price!

Hotel office was not street side and there were no signs marking the way. Had I not seen a photo on this site we would still be driving around. Mapquest was a little help very little. Wonderful views of the city and the Firth of Fourth, spacious living area. Hotel staff was great! We would definately stay there again!

Shopping tip: Short drive from hotel

bus stop was very close, market was short drive or longer walk, quite a ways to night life. Take the bus, parking downtown is a horror show, and if you have tipped a few too many, you still have a ride home!
