The property is great, the managing agents are terrible to deal with and I'd avoid dealing with them.

Hi Parking is free. You just need to use your room swipe key to access the car park. We let every guest know, and it is also in the check in instructions about accessing the car park. Not sure what happened there I am sorry.

Stay in your room and enjoy the view! Lifts are awful, queues of 15mins to get a lift, altercations with people not waiting in the queue. There's 4 lifts to service 30 floors - our floor had 5 apartments on it. To recycle items you have to go to B1 - only 2 lifts go there. Service staff also lock lifts off. There was vomit in one of the pools on Australia Day, amenities always busy, the risk we took staying in a large resort over a peak period. Wouldn't stay here again.

Thank you for the feedback. Sounds like you had a rough time with the lifts etc,.,. I have sent your message onto the body corp, as they will be able to make sure lifts are not closed off during service times. We certainly never close off lifts. Thank you for the feedback.
