5 of us stayed for one night at a three bedroom apartment. We were impressed by the cleanliness and the many many amenities offered in the apartment, which included everything we would have needed on a longer stay. Front of house staff were friendly and helpful. We did not hear trains, but given the fact that we stayed only for... More

We stayed in a three bedroom apartment for 1 night and found it to be very enjoyable, clean and well appointed with everything you could need. Apart for the trains arriving at the station during the night - I think there were two - I didn't hear them but the lady in the other bedroom did - but this is... More

We just needed somewhere to stay for 1 night and this apartment more than met our needs! The staff were the friendliest and most helpful I have ever encountered! Will definitely be back for a longer stay!

Stayed here one night, but certainly wouldnt have minded staying a few more! Clean, comfortable, and spacious. Cool 3-storey design with a living/dining area, bedrooms and garage. Staff were friendly and helpful

We stayed here for 1 night. We were in a 3 bed apt. The apartment was big, clean and very useable. The staff were extremely friendly and allowed early check in for our daughter to sleep. As with most accommodation along the jetty - you do hear the trains...but you can't escape it and I slept though it too! It... More

We stayed in a different unit two weeks apart to break a trip from Newcastle to the Gold Coast and found both to be clean, comfortable and well appointed, with nice ocean views. The service from staff was courteous and helpful.

I had a fantastic night's stay at the Observatory on Saturday night as I had a function at one of the restaurants around the corner. As far as locations go, this is pole position, you don't get much closer to the action. The rooms are large and well appointed and the views are incredible with the service second to none!... More

The place is within walking distance of the jetty restaurants and the very pretty waterfront & a short drive to town & the larger shops. It was... More

The treatment and service was first class, down to Earth people who would bend over backwards for the tenants. Any questions and requests were responded with great enthusiasm. I was truly impress and would stay there again in a heart beat!
