The balcony offered a beaut view along the river - also great to have the fresh air blowing in early morn and late arvo. Free wi-fi (v.good), car parking (good, but off site) and... More

The room is not as per advertisement. It is old, mouldy and the furniture (including) bed is totally worn out. I checked in at 3am (had to scream my credit card details over the intercom)which was very painful and checked out at 7am. They wanted to charge me for the full two weeks - ended up paying for three days... More

This is the third time I've stayed here and it seems quite clear to me that I'm not wanted as a guest. Worse though is the attitude toward my stay, a couple of points worth noting: 1. Air Conditioning appears to be set to not go below 21 degrees, when it's 38 outside & stays warm overnight it is almlost... More

We stayed for two nights in room 1309, the view was absolutely awesome. We could see over the city and the river. The 2 bedroom apartment was large and well furnished. Totally enjoyed the stay and the free ferry downstairs just another bonus.

A little dated, Bed was just on par. Staff friendly. The best feature is the location. Parking is difficult to understand with the parking bay numbers poorly laid out. Free wifi worked. Views to the city OK

The decor is a little tired, and the service is functional, not top league, but then the rates were good and the location is excellent, with nice views over the river and cityscape, so nothing really to complain about. A nice family weekend stay, and would choose Dockside Apartment Hotel again.
