I wasn’t prepared to walk 2 flights of stairs. The noise from the planes was unexpected. I had to contact wotif to get a receipt.

Thank you for your feed back We are a walk up with no lift and some apartments are up two flights of stairs, which is clearly outlined in booking information Unfortunately, when we get northerly winds, which is around 10% of the time, the planes land form the South, which means they fly straight over the city. We can get a few days in a row of this but the majority of the time they land from the North If you make a booking with an online travel agent and make payment to them, they are the only ones that can issue a receipt, as we only receive a net payment from them

The apartment was clean and reasonably spacious but a little on the dark side. Most windows overlooked parts of the building, so there was no pleasant view. We didn’t spend any significant time in the apartment, so it didn’t affect us much.

Thanks for your comments. We are not a seaside building and as such don't have these views. Having said that, the building is not that ugly with a very nice pool between the two buildings
