Nice apartment but very difficult to find...

Pros: Modern and nicely appointed
Cons: Directions..
Nice almost new apartment. It is close to some nice eateries and a bar across the street. It is difficult to find from the instructions as from the parking area you go through an un marked fire door, then must exit the building and enter the apartment from the outside. The apartment was very nicely appointed and the bed super comfortable. The location is nice and central. is great value once you find it..

book elsewhere if you can

Pros: Location
Cons: read about experience
Location: Restaurants
Key need to be picked up from agent who is 10min drive from apartment between 2pm -5.30pm. Very inconvenient and impossible for some to get the key as this information is not disclosed on booking website. There is a wifi modem but the password is not available and as after 5.30pm, there was no one to ask. 100% block-out roller binds (colour black) are broken and can't be opened which is very unpleasant during the day. Apartment has been smoked in hence very smelly. A/C didn't work. No shampoo, soap etc

Perfect unit if your partying on the foreshore

Great unit , very practical , well situated has everything you need and is fantastic position to the foreshore which was brilliant as we had a baby so finding meals was easy . The bed was super comfortable and the bedroom was large enough to fit a portacot in . Only down points would be that's it's very loud traffic noise especially on the fri/sat night and there is a light right outside the room which makes it almost daylight the whole night . Also we found the balcony to be unmaintained as we had to sweep so our daughter could play on her wheelie walker but the dirt buildup meant your feet would just turn black immediately which wasn't ideal as the unit has cream carpet !! Otherwise the unit was fantastic and we would use it again if we were returning !

Disappointing

Pros: Modern apartment and nicely furnished.
Cons: See comments above
Location: Cafes and licensed premises within close proximity.
Apartment was in a different location to where you needed to collect keys (approximately 5 kms). I do not recall this being noted on booking or confirmation. It was difficult to find the car park and car space. The door to the unit could not be opened without significant force. The air conditioner was inadequate to cool the apartment. Only two towels were provided which did not allow for using the pool. The balcony area was disgusting, dirty, bird droppings and cobwebs.....unusable. The was a sheet over the doona rather than an actual cover. Would never stay here again, expected more for the rating.

Don't stay here is you have another choice

Unless you have a car, which I didn't as I was visiting Canberra for work, you have to catch a cab out to the LJ Hooker office in Manuka. They give you your keys and tell you the actual location of your room. In my case it was back in the city so after a $40 cab ride I am at the front door of the building. Incidentally I was told that I would need to return the keys to the LJ Hooker office the next morning so another $40 cab ride. I advised I would not be doing this. Instead I would leave them in the room. The proximity reader did not work on the front door so I could not access the building. A call to the LJ Hooker office results in 'I cant help you I just give out the keys'. It was suggested that perhaps I could try accessing the building via the car park as most guests get in that way. Found the car part entry, which appears to be for another building, and walked around and around and down and down until I found spots similar to the one on my paperwork then located a lift. This did take me to the right floor and then found my room. The room was split over three levels which was fine. I like a TV in the bedroom, there wasn't one. No compendium to assist with local eateries etc. The final straw, one of the sliding doors was not locked and could not be locked so the room was not secure. Big disappointment. Would never recommend this place.

Misleading advertisement

The apartment location is not what was stated on the website.

Dirty souless

Online booking is misleading - says in Griffith but actually Civic. Room was poorly cleaned . Hated it.

Canberra stay

Pros: Location - local cafes and restaurant nearby, comfort and heating
Cons: N/a
Location: Very nice area, sculptures to view surrounding buildings. Cafes and restaurants in area were very good
The one bedroom apartment was very comfortable and clean. The location was close to everything we wanted to visit by car.

Amazing apartment and location in Acton

Pros: The room, the artwork pieces displayed, the location :)
From the moment you enter this complex there are artworks and sculptures to be seen and are beautiful. Then to step into the lift to see another piece of artwork change on the rear wall was very surprising. 'My' 12th floor apartment was beautiful and the view of the lake was more than I expected. Will definitely stay here hopefully again.
