Thank you for leaving us a great review.

I liked that the property has plenty of parking and is quiet. I thought a hairdryer in apartment 101A would be good. The bathroom could probably do with a good clean with a tooth brush especially the shower area and tiles and pull down seat in the disabled bathroom

For 6 people the property needs a few more items of cutlery/crockery. View from our room was nothing like the brochure

Thanks for leaving a review, additional cutlery/crockery is something we will look into. As noted on the listing and confirmations, there is ongoing construction work at a nearby development which does effect views.

Spacious apartment overlooking the lake. Great spot close to Airport and retail shops in Frankton. The 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom apartment was excellent for our family holiday

Clean and tidy. Easy to access. Just a short drive to town but accessible to snow fields.

Large and spacious rooms with all facilities

Pros: room are large and waterfront
Cons: hope can have fly-screen door in front.
Location: Location is nearby bus-stop, cross road there are fuel station, very easy to find the resort when we drive the rent car from airport.
The bedrooms were large and comfortable. The living room was spacious with a dining table, TV and sofas. The kitchen was fully equipped with all utensils and machinery present, such as microwave oven, stove, fridge, freezer, kettle and cutlery, and high quantity cookware.

Great accomodation for two couples!

We enjoyed our stay. It was clean, modern and perfect for us! It was a short walk to restaurants and shopping. The facilities were exactly what we needed.

Up the hill from town centre which was good as you were out of the hustle and bustle. Was relaxing to come back to. Loved the fireplace. Apartment was nicely furnished warm and cosy. Two separate bedrooms with bathrooms. We travelled with our teenaged son who could chill in his own space when he wanted to. Few minor maintenance issues which didn't affect stay. Good parking. We definitely would stay here again and would recommend to others.

Thanks for leaving a review. Sorry to hear you found the apartments cleaning not up to standard. This is unusual for us to receive this kind of feed back as we do have a great cleaning company that looks after our apartments. However we will send this report onto them. Thank you
