We rented a 2 bedroomed apartment and we were not disappointed. It had 2 bathrooms and a roomy lounge, dining area and kitchen. There was a small balcony which looked over the water. While there were a few minor repairs and maintenance issues which we reported, we were very happy with the apartment and it's location.

2nd time we have stayed in 1807 a 1b/r apt in the Boyd building. As it has been some years there are now some issues. The lounge suite which once was lovely is now badly marked & on a light beige colour the marks don't miss you along with the sad flat scatter cushions Some of the dining room chairs... More

I did not open email from them confirming booking that said in fine print: PLEASE CALL when you arrive at the Airport or 1 HOUR prior to arriving at Docklands so we can arrange to meet you at your apartment." because I had already spoken to Tony and said I would be coming in at midnight. So I sat in... More

We had a very rocky start - all my fault - and the staff of Harbour Escape were absolutely charming about a very awkward situation. We found them reasonable and helpful, which made a huge difference to our holiday. The apartment in the Palladio building primarily overlooked the stadium and city, a view our kids loved. The location wouldn't be... More

Check in after 2pm which is fine, but when I requested a 3pm check in this was declined. So we had to hang around and wait at the Harbour Escape's convenience instead of being able to go off for lunch as planned. The website shows images of apartments with absolute waterfront views and great views of the city. We were... More

Have stayed at Docklands a few times and it is a great location. The apartment we had in the Arkley building has an IGA downstairs and a bottle shop and lots of restaurants nearby. The apartment was fine but the little things let it down especially when you are paying top dollar because it is in school holidays and it... More

The apartments were well appointed with water views. Docklands has many restaurants a minute away. The tram stop into the city is across the road. We thought this was a great location. We were very disappointed that it was not disclosed that a construction site is next door. The trucks and Jack hammers start at 7am and continue to 6pm.... More

Have just returned from a week in Melbourne, stayed at the Harbour Escape Docklands Apartments. These Apartments overlook the Marina & Bay at Docklands, from our apartment we could even see Port Phillip Bay in the distance. Upon arrival at the airport we rang the agent & they organised to meet us there with the key, the only negative was... More

The location at NewQuay Docklands is fantastic. The apartment I stayed in overlooked the harbour and there was plenty of a nice cool breeze coming through the apartment (which I liked!). There is a tram stop just in front of the apartment which will get you into the city. (There is also a free city circle tram that makes a... More

My parents had come down to Australia for the first time so we decided to take a family holiday to Melbourne over the easter break "to show them a good time". So we booked a 2 bed 2 bath apartment with "water views" for AUD290 a night. Water views alright! the balcony was south west facing and the floor to... More
