Do not book this hotel using the Wotif site. No refund or ability to postpone our booking when Covid prevented us from travelling. They just took our money!

Dear Anonymous, Unfortunately, you booked through a third party website. Booking through Expedia means that at the time of your booking you also paid for this in full via their website. Making any changes to these bookings has to be done by the guest directly through Expedia. We were offering a one time date change for those effected by the Sydney lockdown that had booked advance purchase/non-refundable bookings within the cancellation policy of 24 hours prior to arrival. Sincerely, Zoe

Very comfortable bed, great shower. The other furniture in the apartment such as lounge etc was very uncomfortable and not practical at all. The shower also had nowhere to put your toiletries as it appeared the soap tray had been broken off.
