This property is old and tired. We went expecting a nice 4 star, we got an old 3 star. Cracked tiles and shower screens that didn't move. Fixtures that are old and out of date. The location is good but that's where it stops. Wouldn't recommend this place to anyone. Sorry, we wanted something that was up to todays standards, not the eighties...

Excellent location and helpful/cheerful staff. Internet was a little unreliable - was out for 2 out of our 4 nights, and TV/satellite/foxtel hard to operate as no instructions available (kids not happy!). Some fittings in the apartment were a bit tatty (the dining chairs in particular). Overall however the apartment was spacious and had everything needed for a comfortable stay.
