The location and size of unit was excellent. Southbank just a very short stroll away. Out of the crazy busy part, yet close enough to everything

Had trouble finding parking, signage wasnt very good. I presume the works out front will be cleaned up as it is not pretty! Service counter was lovely all workers were very pleasant and accommodating. Our room was very neat and clean. All amenities in good working order. Our view was a very ugly grey wall. I would highly recommend a painted mural as it was awful (yes we had the cheapest apartment but for $200 i still found it disappointing) there were dishes left next to the elevator that remained there for our whole stay. Considering staff used the same elevator i would expect these to have been removed sooner. The breakfast tables were not being cleaned - customers were clearing tables themselves to be seated. I can only put this down to perhaps being understaffed over the long weekend?? Overall we were very happy with location and service however there were certainly areas that need to be improved

Thanks so much for the constructive feedback, you can be assured we will work on dressing the wall when the project has finished next door. Hanging garden is the leading option at thi stage. Thanks again

I enjoyed sitting in the warm spa at the end of the day after walking for hours. I liked the two bedrooms as I was staying with a teenage nephew. It was an easy walk to the nightlife along the Yarra. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony eating breakfast despite the busy traffic.

Thanks Anon, sorry to hear the hustle and bustle of the CBD had a detrimental effect on your time with us. If you're a light sleeper let us know as we have some very quiet internal allocations whihc we can utilise to ensure you get the R&R you need.

Great location, lovely large apartment. A bit noisy though..outside road traffic was very audible at night. Might need to invest in double glazing.
