"Very enjoyable stay, lovely apt, great location"
Great location, all amenities close and Royal Botanic Gardens are 5 mins walk away. Also convenient bus stops at the front door which make access to city centre or further south even easier. Apartment is well-maintained, well-equiped and very quiet with bedrooms overlooking the building backyards.
