An absolute nightmare from the moment we arrived. The room was not ready, we were told to go for a walk. We had just spent 3hrs walking around waiting till 2pm for check in. No more walking was needed. 2.45 pm we finally got our key. When we got to our apartment the fridge and the floor was dirty. Then... More

Stayed at these apartments in late January with 2 other adult friends for 10 days. Apartments serviced once only during that time and we were given 1 hand towel and 1 bath towel each for the entire week. (I only gained extras because I happened to be there when they "cleaned" (not very well), and asked for extras). Shower was... More

staff were capable (just). though they didn't/couldn't replace the broken tv remote. The room was dismal. it would appear that an ability called MAINTENANCE is something they know nothing about. from the 3rd floor we could hear the front door sliding open/closed. the beds are great for those never having slept in a hammock. would I stay/recommend the establishment? not...

carspaces inadequate and not guaranteed - even when paying $10 a night extra. Staff on check in (I think they were training) not familiar with system and gave no details of area. This is not "easy" walking distance from the city. One staff member very rude. Have never felt so unwelcome at any other hotel around the world. She rolled... More

Some things I am passing on to City Edge. I wasn't advised there is no lift, so was upset to lug my suitcase up stairs as I have osteoarthritis. The door to the stairwell slams as people aren't considerate enough to close it quietly & at 3am or 5am, it wakes you with a fright & makes your windows shudder.... More

Our family was very disappointed with the poor cleaning and maintenance of our 2 bedroom apartment. We had booked and prepaid for 6 nights but only stayed for 1 due to our concerns. The issues with our room included: Mould surrounding the vent in the bathroom. Dirty toilet, floors and refrigerator Filthy pillowcase on one of the pillows. Refrigerator would... More

As the Aus Open tennis was on, we chose this on location and price. What a shocking apartment ! The lounge was the most uncomfortable and ugly lounge we had ever seen! But the bed was even worse ! The place was not clean and the bathroom smelt like a sewer pipe. While we did not expect a 5 star... More

Got a rate of $99 for one night. Was during tennis season so happy to find somewhere. It was already 8pm so decided to drive down instead of booking online incase of issues. Asked Receptionist to confirm if room available. She spent 5 mins on computer then told me yes $130. I told her it was cheaper online. She responded... More

Booked at a relatively quiet time through Qantas as staying on business (my business so I fund the travel). Seem to recall I paid about $90 per night. Thought I would see what you get for $90 per night , given I normally spend about $140 - $150. The place is a DIVE. Stinks, stains everywhere (carpets etc). Realise you... More
