Unbeatable location when going to Royal Childrens Hospital (under 5 min walk). There had been some obvious attempts to update the property - new kitchens/washers/dryers etc but installation and cleanliness were lacking. Notices to say don't turn aircon under 22 or they leak or freeze / don't cook on high or smoke alarms go off / mismatahced laminex / marked walls / shower grout was just gross. Our room (13) had a terrible stale smoke odour that was through everything - not sure if previous guests smoked in the room or the laundry person is a chain smoker but even the pillows reeked. That aside the staff were the standout highlight of this place. Extremely helpful and informative and made you feel welcome straight away. If you needed somewhere for a week or so near the Royal Childrens the self contained aspect is a huge plus but perhaps for an overnight there are more comfortable options.

The aircon didn't cook the bedroom, the amenities were good/adequate, the mattress wasn't very good quality.

Don't scratch the surface

Pros: Location
Cons: Staff training
The building is old and worn. Basic maintenance has not been performed and cleaning is not to a commercial standard.The building has been given a quick coat of paint, but there are doors that do not close, sticky floors and many tripping hazards. Smoke detectors go off routinely.

3day stay in studio ap't

Ideal for me as I wanted to be close to the RCH. Location is perfect as a 5 minute walk gets you to the Hospital front entrance. Staff very considerate and helpful. Only downside is the proximity to the through-way right by the window and the tiny bathroom sink. The kitchen was convenient and had everything I needed.

Very convenient for the RCH

Pros: Convenient to the RCH Friendly reception. Clean, attractively furnished and sunny aspect.
Cons: He bathroom basin is tiny and difficult to use because of the overhead cupboard.
Location: I only visited the RCH but could see lots of parkland around. The area has lots of heritage housing with gardens and greenery. The zoo is nearby.
The studio apartment was fine for my 3-night stay. The room was spotless, quiet, has plenty of storage room, WIFI access, faces into the sun and is comfortably furnished. The bathroom basin was virtually inaccessible though as it was tucked underneath a cupboard but the kitchen had a large sink. Unfortunately the room looked directly onto a building site and was on a level with passing foot- traffic so I had to keep the blind lowered most of the time. I would happily stay there again though as I was not in the room much in the daytime. The proprietor was really helpful in showing me the short- cut through to the RCH and I would definitely recommend staying there if you are making a Hospital visit.
