Unit was spotless, didn't seem to have any of the problems others have had. 2 bed rooms plenty of room only a short walk to heart of surfers, easy comfortable room. Only negative was the blinds on the windows let in way to much light so no sleep in possible.

Was so disappointed by the state of the apartment we stayed in. Started with outdated uncomfortable furniture, stained table and coffee table, tiny television, stained old blankets on the beds (which where the only covers), stained and mouldy curtains in the bathroom around spa. Brocken dishwasher and was left one dirty used sponge to clean dishes. Hot water heater in... More

Arrived late, and got my key from the after hours reception safe, opened the envelope to get my key out, and headed to the room. Got to the room to find an oily smell, and it was very hot and humid. Checked out the wonderful spa which was the main reason to book it and found literally missing tiles, steps,... More

I arrived here yesterday after my wife and three young kids. She warned me that the room was bad but I never expected this. Broken blinds, broken window locks, stained carpet, stinking mould in the shower, filthy walls, uncomfortable beds, a single rusty air conditioner struggling to cool the place, broken cupboards, need I continue? The manager was full of... More

I booked the emerald hotel and then read the reviews, I was then worried that I'd made a big mistake. This hotel is fantastic, great for families with two bedrooms and two bathrooms in each apartment. Nice, clean rooms with good appliances. Three balconies made watching the NYE fireworks perfect in all directions. Short walk to Cavill ave and the... More

I am very sorry to hear that our cleaning standard was lacking on this occasion. We will be more careful with our pre-checkin inspections in future. Thank you for taking the time to point this out. More

Dirty room. Sticky floors. Unless you stay for 9 days or more your room doesn't get serviced and you don't get clean towels every day. The kettle was so dirty that we bought one at Woolworths so we could have a cuppa in our travel mugs. Wouldn't touch the cutlery or crockery as it was dirty and disgusting. The beds... More

We booked a 2 bedroom apartment with a spa and when we arrived the man on reception tried to charge me $50 more than I had been quoted - lucky I had my booking paperwork with me.
