Excellent large apartment with large windows overlooking the marina. We had an apartment on one of the upper floors in the very modern block. The facilities were excellent and it would be very easy to live there. The free bus service in the centre of Melbourne extends to the Docklands so the journeys taken into the centre were free. We...

I stayed in a 3 bedroom/2 bathroom apartment in the Nolan buliding with a group of girlfriends for a girls weekend away. The apartment was perfect. Spacious, clean, modern and well equiped. There were 6 of us and we were all more than happy with the apartment. The location also was wonderful for us. Away from the hustle of CBD... More

This is something that I shall investigate further and action accordingly. I do hope you... More

I have stayed here several times now and each apartment has been great. Very comfy in the 2 bedroom apartment even with 2 boys. Building is quiet and the location is perfect. Within sight of Etihad stadium and tram stop almost at the door. I'll be returning for another stay soon.

Stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment for 5 nights with a friend for the Arnold Classic in mid March. Check in was easy and the staff were extremely helpful. Location is fantastic. Close to Costco, plenty of cafes and restaurants near by, free tram is literally outside the door, and it's an easy walk to the CBD. The onsite gym... More

I stayed here with my wife for 8 nights, we couldn't have been happier. The apartments are located in a great area of Melbourne, especially with a tram stop outside of the building allowing easy access to the free tram network throughout the CBD. In addition there is multitude of restaurants, cafes and bars all located within walking distance. Not... More

Great value for a single traveler. Very spacious apartment. Was clean and stylish with great views over the Harbour. When I booked I wasn't expecting the harbor view for the very reasonable price. It was a pleasant surprise. Quiet and private. Tram at the front door for easy access to the city.

My sister in law booked this apartment from UK before flying to Oz. I had not heard of them before, but as I checked in first, I was pleasantly surprised. We had a 2 bedroom apartment in the Conder Building. Table & chairs on small balcony gave us fabulous views of the harbour, Bolte bridge, city lights and of course,... More
