The place was lovely decorated and very clean. Beds were comfortable and we enjoyed our 3 night stay. Close to the lake and cafes. We will stay again.

Good sized apartment with 2 separate bedrooms. Ours had regular electric heater, not the gas fireplace we expected. Also had navy velvet carpet that showed every crumb or hair, but no vacuum to clean it. Great location, just up from Lake Wendouree. Heated towel rail and heat lamps in bathroom were nice bonuses.

Great if you want to pay for a night, and not be given access then spend hours on the phone outside in the cold trying to resolve only to fail.

House would be great in summer but really hard to keep wam in winter. Coolness coming up through floor. House seemed clean apart from bathroom- places that hadn't been swept or mopped and the washing machine was gross.

Very comfortable and spacious. Ground floor apartment ideal for 2 of our family with Walking Frames. Bathroom very good. Being a coffee drinker I would like a plunger coffee maker available. Would recommend the complex to others.

Good evening Thank you for your review and I am so sorry that the neighbours were inconsiderate. In future, please don't hesitate to give us a call and we can contact the other apartment to ask them to pipe down. One should never suffer in silence. Kind regards Gavin

This accommodation seems to be budget renovated 1950s or 1960s flats. The old sash windows are broken or stuck and some have been painted shut. We could not open any windows for fresh air. The routine cleaning (bathrooms, new sheets and towels) was good. However, it appears that major cleaning is never done. The air conditioner was filthy and I cleaned the mesh filters myself - they looked like thick pile carpet. There were lots of spiders' webs on the window frames and cornices and thick dust/lint on the ceiling fan.

Very homely and extremely cosy.

Pros: Cosy feel.
Cons: A tea towel to dry the dishes.
Location: Very close to Lake Wendouree. Great for walking, riding and dining at nearby restaurants.
Absolutely love this place. Great location and so close to Lake Wendouree.
