Nice and tidy rooms. Wifi was terrible, slow and annoying. Pools were freezing cold and it was very noisy at night. Gym was small and not that good. Close to mall which is very handy but overall it was okay.

Room was good for a family, the sofa had seen better days, otherwise the rooms were well equipped and clean. The outdoor balcony was covered which is a shame because you could not sit out and get the sun, especially later in the day. There are 3 pools so plenty of choice, however not much pool furniture to sit on.... More

We stayed here in July and had a ground floor 1 bedroom apartment which was well catered with washing machine and dryer in the bathroom. The bed was comfortable but would recommend a new lounge as this was very uncomfortable to sit in.The verandah has a table and chairs which is what you use to eat on but would like... More

My wife and I booked this venue through a website (Booking.com) that gave us a chance (via return email) to ask for a deluxe ground floor 2 bedroom unit which conveniently had handy access to a toddlers pool, sun lounges and gym - room 1143. (No lifts make the second or third level luggage climb a bit challenging). Our room... More

Our room was on the ground floor with direct access to the pool which was great! They did charge us an additional $15 to secure a ground floor room which in hindsight was well worth the money. The apartment was large (for 2 people) with a modern gally style kitchen, small lounge room with large tv, undercover "deck" with bbq... More

These apartments are approximately a 10 minute walk from the main centre and a nice walk but only 50 metres to the main shopping centre which was great! Nice unit although small had twin beds for my daughter and I and all amenities we needed. Staff were very friendly and helpful. No free Wi-Fi which we did know about prior... More

I would have given an excellent except we had the third floor and with rain the stairs were extremely slippery and dangerous. Particularly dangerous for us old people. Otherwise a great place to stay. Handy to everything.

Great little apartment, fully fitted kitchen, oven, stove, microwave, fridge freezer, washing machine, dryer, etc. Was great to be able to have breakfast in and spin wet clothes, etc. The only potential problem for some would be the over bath shower - the bath was quite deep so a bit of a hurdle for short legs. Water temperature and force... More

My hubby and I stayed here for two nights, we knew it was more budget priced accommodation because of its location but there was more to it than that. Our room and balcony overlooked the large carpark, we could hear cars coming and going with people talking at all hours of the night. The main gate would clang loudly and... More
