All modern and spacious fully-serviced 2 & 3 bedroomed apartments have separate living rooms and kitchens. Each offers the usual kitchen appliances, washing machine, fridge freezer, iron etc and free Wi-Fi! Whilst the WiFi is usually fine for social media, emails etc, our location can sometimes make it too slow for zoom calls or video streaming for example! 

Our Apartments are situated over The Helm's bar and restaurant and in the Cinnamon Wharf complex just across the road. They are most suitable for families, couples and small touring group bookings, and note that we do not accept Hen or Stag Parties for this reason.
