Had a newly redecorated room, it was lovely with a beachy feel. Excellent location, close to transport, local cafes and shopping. Ladies at front counter were lovely and helpful. Would definitely stay again.

Location EXCELLENT, which was the saving grace. Has everything you need. Apartment a bit drab and dated, but you get what you pay for. Reception availability poor.

HOUSEKEEPING NEEDS TO PULL THEIR SOCKS UP

Pros: The location was wonderful. Close to cafes was also a great benefit to us. But BEST OF ALL was the ease to check, in out of hours. Perfect & easy!
Sheets & pillow cases on bed were clean, but due to a cold winter night, the extra blanket smelled. We stayed in Unit 23, a 1 bedroom small apartment which was perfect for a 2-day stay with my daughter as we attended a cheer competition right over the road - the location was perfect. I'm not a fuss pot, but when i see the LOCK UP reminder stickers on the sliding glass patio door, i felt the need to be a little vigilant with security given we weren't the high off the ground and any burglar could easily reach us. Imagine my horror when our bedroom large sliding window didn't even lock ! This is truly a basic requirement and one that i feel housekeeping and/or the Management should check often. This was reported to the friendly Manager and he took it on board and was thankful. BUT, housekeeping, please do your job. Wipe down cupboards, benches, doors, and down beside the washing machine - YUCK ! It was so bad i took a couple of photos - first time for me to feel the need to do that. This particular unit needs a good going over pretty much everywhere. There are greasy, slimy fingerprint marks on so many of the doors and surfaces, again housekeeping should get their sponge and spray out, and use it ! There is only 1 small air-conditioning unit in the lounge room - not that we used it - BUT it is incredibly rusty and i truly doubt it works given the amount of rust that has eaten through it - located outside on the patio. Tenants are warned to not leave ANY rubbish behind !

A great place to stay, close to Conference Centre

Pros: location, look and feel, price point, friendliness and competancy of staff, very comfortable, modern and well appointed room. A good amount of space.
Upon arrival, I was greeted with friendly smiling faces, which made a difference after a day of traveling. I am English speaking, but I noted that they ensured there were staff there to speak other languages (particularly Asian) to cater for all sorts of travelers, and I was impressed. The room was lovely, clean, light and bright, comfortable and modern. Everything worked on good order and I had no issues with my stay. I felt like they thought of everything. Location was extremely good for my purposes, a short walk to the beach, great selection of food at my doorstep, and I was closer to the conference centre than I expected. Very happy with this stay, and would be delighted to stay there again.
