The location was great having good access to the CBD. The staff that checked me out had attitude. Tried to talk over me all the time, preemptive of the conversation I was trying to have with her. I wanted to report a blown light bulb but she wouldn’t let me talk, at times treating me a like a fool. Also when I asked about the held funds, it was like she was ticked off with me for asking. We were in room 207 right near the lift: DO NOT EVER LET TAKE THIS ROOM. The lift for the floor, is right outside your bedroom window, so when anyone at night is waiting for the lift, they talk and it wakes you up. Why do you need a window there? Seriously??? I mentioned this and she blew me off. Not the best experience, and would not stay there again.

The good stuff: Great location. Large, well appointed clean rooms, happy helpful housekeeping staff. The things that make you go hmm stuff: Overly complicated check in - like seriously, took 15 minutes. Parking deal with nearby commercial carpark was expensive and only allowed to have 1 exit out (that is leave the space) every 24 hours?? The bad stuff: Only 1 lift that is extremely small and slow. Resulting on very long waits Communication with some reception staff was difficult. While some were what you would expect in hospitality, smiley, friendly helpful. Others, could give Basil Faulty himself a lesson in sarcasm and how to make a guest feel like they are an intrusion and inconvenience. (Rhymes with smiley but she definitely wasn't).

Close to main drag. Clean. But there’s no air flow in the apartment and it’s stuffy. Our room stunk of fish when we arrived. The bedrooms were like sleeping in a closed coffin

Friendly staff. Early check in and late check out so we didn't have to wait for the room and had time to pack.
