Room recently renovated with fabulous views of the river. Balconies face north with lots of sun. Best feature for me was how peaceful and quiet the apartments are. Still only a short walk to all the shops.

Had a awesome week at the Spectrum Holiday Apartments. Great location and with amazing views all round. This complex is great for families and couples & has great facilities and grounds. The Appartments are well equipped and very clean. Within walking distance to main shopping mall, tram and bus service. Staff are friendly and very helpful. We would highly recommend.
