Lovely apartment, lacklustre staff & system

Pros: The apartment was great, would definitely recommend it
Cons: Definitely need to improve their communications, with me and with wotif. I felt unwelcome and as though booking through wotif wasn't a positive.
Location: Good spot near the train station
Great apartment, well appointed and comfortable. Unfortunately communications with AH were at a low standard, with no answer ever at the listed phone number (and no response to messages left), and no responses to the online contact form. There was a mobile phone number noted on the automated check-in teller for the manager, who thankfully called back after I left a message. Firstly, it seems the automated check-in details were not sent through wotif (apparently AH send an email), so I was not able to check in using the teller at the door. Fortunately there was a nearby staff member that the manager sent down to sort it out for me about 10 minutes later, and they were very helpful. Secondly, I was told I was lucky to get a park, as there is no facility to request and pay for this with the booking using the wotif system. Thirdly, upon check-out, the automated system would not let me check out as I was leaving in the evening, rather than the next morning. I sent emails using the contact form to the company and called the phone number with no response, and 4 days later called the mobile of the manager looking for check-out confirmation and invoice. The manager responded with a terse email stating that my transaction was through wotif and therefore she could not provide an invoice as there was no exchange of money between me and AH. I have requested an invoice for the $240 parking charge that AH made on my credit card (with my approval), but there has been no response as yet.

Hotel good. Customer service not so much

Pros: Shiny New Well designed Comfortable
Cons: Follow through on customer service
Apartment was good, very new and shiny. Well designed and some thoughtful inclusions. However, we were on the ground floor opposite the lift and any noise made by entering guests echoed. But when I mentioned that to Suzanne the hotel manager, she offered to move us So far, very good But then, due to a change in plans, we moved out after 2 nights with 5 nights remaining on our 7 night booking. I knew it was a non refundable booking and had no problem with forfeiting the money, but Suzanne offered to try to rerent our room. That was unexpected but as it was Thursday, two days before a long weekend and with five nights left on the booking, I had hopes. I checked the website on the Friday and the hotel was showing as fully booked, so I thought we might see some sort of refund. I contacted her a week or so later and had no response. A further follow up had the same result It was pleasing that the offer of a possible refund was made but annoying that it was not followed through
