Lock broken on sliding door, was moved to another room as soon as reception notified. Need more signage in car park to locate lifts.

Conveniently located and well maintained. Apartment was well equipped and highly functional for week long stay. Availability of gym and lap pool and in close proximity to Yarra Jogging Trail along the river.

Nice clean and new apartment. There is nowhere to park out the front to drop off bags. Parking is a real nightmare in the area. Make sure you book the hotel parking.

Great location. Only 10ish minutes from the city. We had a 2 bedroom apartment. Plenty of room and had 2 bathrooms. Nespresso coffee machine and was a nice surprise.

Very Good 8.0
The place is quite new but lots of marks on the carpet and walls, it has minor defects like toilet Rolls holders, were loose. We wanted to have mire coffee capsules But we had to pay $1 each. The parking had to be pre booked with hotel, otherwise there is not parking . Kitchen needs a chopping board

clean and good property facilities. Have it’s own parking slot.
Oliver, au8 night family trip
Good 6.0
Overall adequate facilities. I will mention though that you have to pre-book parking despite advertising ‘free parking’. We were left with 1 night out of 5 without parking. Just a bit of a poor setup. The 3 bedroom apartment was equipped with 1 small split system which meant the bedrooms were incredibly hot and stuffy. You can’t open the windows as the sound from the other apartments ‘bounce’ around the internal courtyard. The location is fantastic and walking to distance to everything you need.

Good location. Lifts broke down with us in. Parking was on property, but others took our spot (eventually found a new spot with very responsive after hours reception)
