It comprises 2 double bedrooms/2 bathrooms to sleep up to 4 people very comfortably. It’s also a stone’s throw from the fashionable Broughton Street with its great cafe culture and bistros, as well as being close to the Playhouse Theatre and the main downtown shopping area. The apartment benefits from free wifi internet access and is non- smoking throughout, although there’s ample outdoor space for those in need!
