We were meant to stay at Nautilus but were transferred to Star apartments. We had selected the Nautilus due to positive family friendly reviews, travelling with a 4 yr old and myself working Friday and Saturday. Friday night saw a party in the building across from us until 5.30am, not much rest. Saturday and Sunday were ok. Smokers on our floor were not ideal with a strong herby ‘cigarette’ smoke smell in the hallways. No balcony is an issue for us and we should have confirmed that prior. We did get a 2nd parking, which was really great but the codes we were initially sent to open the apartment were incorrect and it was a delay in getting into the property, after driving over 5 hours with a small child, not ideal. I get it was an extenuating circumstance for the agents but at the end of the day, not a wonderful experience and we paid top dollar at nearly $300 a night.

Location was great for us, central and walking distance to foreshore. We had 4 guests stay but only provided with one entry fob which made it very difficult to coordinate as we were not always all together. Wanted to open sliding doors but mosquitoes were so bad we had to sleep with doors closed.

The cleanliness left a lot to be desired - very worn sheets, no mattress protector on the beds, cigarette butts in the pot plant outside on the balcony, dishes left in the dishwasher and glass on the lounge floor (a few small shards). Apartment was great but cleanliness was very poor.

We arrived to find no key fob in the letter box as per our arrangements. After being made to wait in our hot car on the street with three kids for over an hour we were finally told that the cleaner had not turned up for work and the apartment was therefore not available. We were offered an alternative apartment in Hamilton, which was nowhere near the precinct we needed and wanted to stay in and to date we have not been offered compensation for the difference in price between the two units or the inconvenience and anguish caused. To date, there has been no apology or contact (while making arrangements for an alternative a staff member blamed the cleaners but never once apologised). I cannot recommend this host or accomodation.

The room wasn’t ready at 2pm. We did not get access until 4pm. Waited two hours in the freezing cold outside with 3 small children. When we finally got access, only one fork, not enough bowls, cups glasses. No dishwashing liquid. Small cockroaches in living area. Communication was dreadful prior to gaining access to the property, with me ringing multiple times talking to many different people trying to get an update. At one point offering to move us to another apartment which was absolutely not acceptable. To add further insult after paying for a late check out, a cleaner knocks and enters the room at 10am the next day asking why we haven’t left. Very disappointing stay.

Was promised Two King beds, only got a king and two singles. Location was perfect, only meters from the wharf. Pool was spectacular, however we were constantly abused by other tenants for making a noice.
