I stayed here for a few weeks in March for business. Rooms are reasonably clean, and the bed/pillows are good. All of the amenities required are in the room (if you have a 1 bedroom apartment). Staff were friendly. Coles supermarket is directly across the carpark from the apartments, which is really convenient. There are many restaurants in the area, and Demazzi's (directly below the apartments) deliver room service very quickly, and for a reasonable price - the food is great. Unfortunately I need to mention the main negative about these apartments is the shower - unfortunately, it seems that if you use the shower between 6:20 and 6:40am, the water will be warm, then freezing cold, then warm again, then freezing cold - this alternates about every 60 to 90 seconds. But, overall, a comfortable stay.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. We are so glad to hear you felt comfortable for your few weeks staying with us. Our apartments are great as they provide space, facilities and amenities, perfect for short or long term guests. The location is also convenient, whether you need to head into the city or pop into the supermarket next door. Your feedback regarding the water temperature was noted on your check out, and is being looked into with our maintenance team - no one likes a cold shower in the morning. We hope to welcome you back again soon. Best regards, Mitchell

I did not even get to my room as I did not end up staying. Was allocated a room and went to it but there were already guests staying in that room.
