    Property was extremely hard to find because address given is not where you enter from?? So dated & had an odd smell. Bathroom/Shower setup, well that is just something we’ve never seen before. Wouldn’t recommend

    We loved the property cause it was central to everything,There was no wifi,no Foxtel,and it’s advertised as none smoking and there is ashtrays on balconies and other guests were smoking and the smoke was coming into our room,other than that we would be happy to stay there again

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Friendly service with an apartment that was really central to everything. Room was big with a great balcony. Bed comfortable and room had everything we needed. Couch in our room did need to be replaced as it was getting old and uncomfortable but that’s my only negative. Would definitely stay here again.

  • 8.0.Very good

    The property was central and convenient. It was clean and quirky and the view was beautiful. The only things we expected that wasn’t in the self contained apartment was a dishwasher and a dryer (as it was raining the dryer would have been especially handy)

    Great View

    Enjoyed our stay. Great location, central to everything we needed. Staff were all friendly and helpful. We had an ocean view room with spa and balcony. Only let down was that the building is somewhat dated and in need of some refurbishment and maintenance, eg better exhaust fans in the bathroom.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Valter at Reception was very helpful. We ended up getting checked in a little earlier which was great. The rooms have been upgraded and were clean and comfortable (including bed) and having a lounge/kitchen area in unit was perfect. Situated with direct access to Esplanade, restaurants, night markets. Great place to stay. Would definitely stay again.

  • 6.0.Good

    Great location. Extremely limited Foxtel. Confusing hot and cold water taps in shower, badly fitted toilet seat, no linen service in a week (we ran out of toilet paper), noisy sleeping conditions as the bed is at the front door which leads on to the lift foyer. Most disappointing is we were not advised of the construction works being undertaken on the pool and our room had a courtyard that was next to the pool - we had workers practically in our backyard so we were subjected to power tools being used throughout the day with workers being very noisy and swearing profusely.
