The room was spacious and comfortable. Clean and tidy however the flick mixer in Kitchen only had hot water as cold would not work. Room was pleasant however we were on bottom floor. When the room above arrived every little noise could be heard from them through the lounge room door. When they were walking around upstairs every little noise of them walking or running around could be heard. Was ok because most of the tenants above us were quite but would have been very unpleasant if noisy tenants were in the room. We did not try the spa in the bathroom so cannot comment except to say the bathroom was clean and modern. Overall pleasant stay but could have been a lot worse.

There were a few things missing and broken. There was also only minimal things supplied and we had to make one of the beds up ourselves because it wasn’t made. But otherwise it was just ok

It was pleasing to walk into a fresh, open plan ground floor apartment. We had our dog with us & found the apartment ideal instead of the usual "dog box" because we choose to take our dog away with us. John was very obliging. Only one criticism - lack of glassware - only one wine glass.

The room was dirty. Had crumb in cupboard, ant on benches and in the bathroom the flip master was broken so I will not go back there again

Great location

The apartments look very nice from the outside but internally there is a fair bit of wear and tear on the walls, the bathroom is missing towel rails that have fallen off. The rooms are all upstairs so in the heat of the afternoon the place is quite warm. There is an airconditioner in the lounge but it points towards the outdoor balcony so the bedrooms get hot. The host is nice and helps with any issues but stands around the carports smoking between cleaning/setting up apartments. There is free wifi but the television is so old you can't watch netflix or even a usb with movies which was disappointing. Overall, the bed was very comfortable, the cooking equipment and facilities adequate but the place just needs some love to spruce it up. The location is excellent for those needing access to the hospital or a short walk into the cbd.

Hi Todd, We really appreciate your feedback. We are currently in the process of repainting all of our rooms at the moment and we are hoping to have this completed by Easter 2018. We also have rooms on the ground floor, however not the room type that you booked unfortunately. The afternoon sun is enjoyed by a lot of our guests who utilise the outdoor balcony. All of our apartments have Flat Screen Tv's with a DVD player that a USB can be plugged into, we are currently looking into adding a streaming service to our offering. Again, thank you for the feedback.
