Clean, modern and well decorated studio apartment. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and also excellent location. Only downside is that there is no gym facilities in the building & my partner wasn't allowed upstairs as he has tattoos on his hands, however it seems that majority of bars & clubs in Queensland have the same dress code.
