An excellent, very well located apartment with outstanding views of the marina and bay. Close, if hilly access to seafront and town. Modern, quiet, very clean, well equipped and comfortable apartment. Would have liked a DVD player and possibly Sky. Only real issue was the second "double" bedroom which felt cramped for a couple. Parking may be an issue at certain times. An enjoyable stay.Brian, Bristol - 1st March 2017
