The position is great, it is good value for money. The apartment was light, bright and quiet. Security could be easily improved. There is no in-room safe. Pedestrians can access the parking which is hidden behind the building. Swipe key access to car park would improve this.

Conveniently located. Spacious 2 bedroom apartment. Very basic and dated, but clean and comfortable. Staff on arrival were friendly and efficient. Only complaint would be new pillows are needed for the rooms.

It was very close to the hospital where we visited a patient. Free parming was good.

Liked good walking distance from the city. Checking in at 179 Powlett St is quite inconvenient. Staff very welcoming and happy to assist. Spacious apartment.Some upgrades are good, but is in desperate need of a new paint job. Very chipped and shabby walls. Carpets needed a good vacuum. Shower hot water very very hard to regulate. A lot of water being wasted there. Freezer needed defrosting as door would not shut. I requested it be done by email, but had no action taken.
