Fantastic location with the free city hopper ferry right on the doorstep. Friendly staff and the rooms are clean enough although we feel more quality control checks could be done on the cleanliness of each room prior to allowing visitors in. The kitchen floor wasn't that clean. We opted for a luxury one bed self catering apartment which was located... More

I have never used social media for this kind of thing but I feel it necessary to relay the horrible treatment that my family and I received at the Central Dockside Apartments. My husband is disabled and confined to a wheelchair, we were, as a family going to stay at the apartments and attend a function in the area. I... More

Hi Michelle0810, Thank you for taking the time to also comment via Trip Advisor. I absolutely agree with you in that we should have actioned your request for a wheelchair friendly room prior to your arrival, however it seems to have been an oversight on our behalf. And for that, I sincerely apologise. It was unfortunate that your request was... More

After booking a room at the Dockside Apartments 3 months in advance, specifying that they would need a room with wheelchair access, my mother and father arrived after a 7 hour drive only to find that their room was not wheelchair accessible and that the wheelchair would not fit through the bathroom door. I find it absolutely appalling that after... More

Hi Kelly M Thank you also for taking the time to review the stay at Central Dockside Apartments. We have been liaising with your mother regarding this unfortunate event. Verbally stating our rooms are wheelchair accessible is incorrect and I will address this with the staff members to ensure we are providing our guests with accurate information. We are truly... More

We stayed for one night over a weekend. Very happy with the location on the river with the ferry terminal a few metres away. We booked the Deluxe room for under $200AUS which is good value for the city. The room was an appartment, with 2 bedrooms and sleeps 4 comfortably. Self contained kitchen and a big balcony overlooking the... More

I stayed here for one night and was extremely disappointed with the room. There are no sweeping views of the river or the city skyline. I brought this up with the worker downstairs and he said there was nothing he could do about it. Do not book here if you envision more than looking at a canal and other units... More

Like the title says it was a good location. However we were going to the city a lot and each cab cost us around $20 so if you want more of the city I'd suggest staying closer to the CBD. The room was clean however the carpet was ripped and worn out in a lot of places, the bathrooms were... More
