    I went with my husband and 2 children and mother and father. The rooms were spacious, clean and well facilitated,had plenty of cutlery, plates and cups, had a washing machine and dryer. Staff were friendly enough, let children stay in bar late.

    Could have done with updating, ceiling in downstairs bathroom had obviously had a leak in the upstairs so paint and ceiling were peeling and had a hole in. Had only 4 channels so not much choice in the evening for the children. The music in the bar in the evening was awful, could have done with a bit of livening up.

    Fabulous

    Space, facility, location, self-catering. The fact that when we did have an issue that we got a prompt response via e-mail. Excellent service.

    Fire alarm going off in the middle of the night - no explanation, no information on fire assembly point.

    The good: - the apartment was pretty big, with two big bedrooms sleeping up to 4 people in total. - the location is just on the Quay, and on the road to Westport House - there were a number of nice little restaurants around there - plenty of parking in the public car park (although not in the building). - Breakfast at "The Helm" was nice. - Plenty of towels, and nice and fluffy

    The bad: - the whole apartment felt very tired throughout - the boiler was VERY noisy during and for about one hour after using the hot water - the bathroom fittings were old, a bit rusty and slightly mouldy - the double glazed windows didn't stop any of the street noise, and I suspect they let all the heat out as well, since even after putting the storage heaters on the apartment was still freezing (this is in August!). - the curtains in the bedrooms were the thinnest white curtains I've seen in a while, letting through both the street lights in full at night and the daylight during the day - the whole apartment had a strange smell - no WiFi (although the website claimed there was) If the same rate of 75 Euroe we paid was paid for a family of 4, I would say this is a good value for money accomodation, although it's a very basic one, but for a couple we would have been better off in a hotel. I mentioned some of these issues in the morning when settling the bill, and the person I was talking to was aware of most things, but it didn't sound like there was any plans to address them.

    location, clean, view, friendly staff, lovely breakfast.

    what was disappointing for us was that we had no hot water when we woke spent an hour looking for switch? then had to go to breakfast and when it was fixed we were up and dressed and had breakfast it was too late as we had to get going as we only had 1 night just felt let down as we were relying on having showers first thing not a nice start to the day.
