Great spacious apartment. Would recomme d they check that all the light bulbs work and that maybe they leave few basics available in the kitchen - eg a filter for the coffee machine, cooking oil, salt etc.

Thanks you for the review! :) Yvonne


It took us 45 minutes just to get the doors unlocked. First, the staff failed to give us the key to the street door, then the keys were faulty. Initially the staff showed no urgency in helping us. Then they were very accommodating only when we were visibly annoyed. The keys they ended up giving us for our stay were not clearly labeled which lead to testing out keys on each entry. The shower was horrible. It turns from cold to scalding continuously and has really bad water pressure.

Hi there, we have cleaners rostered 24 hours to ensure optimum cleanliness at all times and if there is a problem we encourage customers to speak to us at reception. There is on street parking beside us and a lot of car parks in the vicinity. We also have our own limited car parking spaces available. Apologies about the water we had an issue with the pumping in the attack but it is now fixed. Many thanks, Yvonne


Very nice and useful staff!. We had a problem with one of our apartments (wasn´t ready and they hadn´t notice). Was so late and cleaning was quick and not so good but staff was always ready to help with a smile (almost all staff, no all staff). Our experience was really good at Abbey Court Apartments. Simple but enough breakfast at hostel building. I recommend and would repeat without doubt.

Hi there- Many thanks for your review! Hope to see you back again soon. Apologies you found some staff unhelpful. Kind Regards, Yvonne


- the staff was very friendly, helpful and competent (even at busy times) - the price is fair - you are not in middle of the crowds but still right in the city centre - the apartments were clean

Thank you so much for the kind review! Hope you come back again soon :)


We really liked this hostel, and the guys at the reception were very nice and friendly! We got one of the private apartments that is like 2 blocks away, and even though it's the very centre of the city, the street this apartment is facing is a noisy one, it's like there is a pub crawl group passing every 10 minutes the whole night. Probably still would be my first choice again.

Apologies about the noise but there is nothing we can do about it unfortunately. We also have other apartments so request a quieter one perhaps next time :)


Friendly staff!! Surely we'll repeat again when we come!

Great! Hope to see you back again shortly :) Yvonne


Both the appartements and the hostel are located right in the city centre, walking distance from pretty much anything yet in a quiet area. The staff was very friendly. I had the feeling that their knowledge about what was going on on New Years Eve differed strongly from person to person. The appartments were fine, besides a few slight flaws like poor TV reception and hard-to-close doors. The hostel looked fun, but was surprisingly very quiet on New Years Eve. Good value for money.
