We stayed for 3 nights & whilst fairly comfortable, suggest this is a good 3 star apartment. Ours was a 1 bedroom Marina view apartment & the bedroom was about as small as you can get. The bathroom is similar - so compact it is just too small. Otherwise the lounge & kitchen is fine & everything is clean. The... More

Thank you for your review Steve O. Our Value Apartments are quite small however next time you might like to try our Executive Apartments, they may be more suitable for you as those apartments are quite spacious. Our apartments are serviced weekly however upon request this can be done daily with an additional cost. Look forward to welcoming you back... More

We stayed in a first floor 2br Harbour view apartment. We arrived a little early and the staff were extremely helpful and offered to check us in early. The apartment was excellent for a family very roomy, modern with a full kitchen and the beds very comfortable. The view from the room over the harbour was superb. This place is... More

I stayed here for work. The apartment I stayed in was spectacular. Huge rooms and everything you could need to stay for a week, including a deep bath for tired legs. Clean and well looked after with a gorgeous view. An Iga supermarket just outside and bottle shop around the corner. Lots of restaurants within walking distance. The Docklands Pizzeria... More

The apartment was clean, with everything we needed. Handy to be at a stop for the free city tram. Would have prefered dock views as the city view is over parking lots and a railway. Unusual as the building is part offices, part apartments, with a modern finish.

Great location on the free tram route. We stayed in a 2bed/2bath apartment with view. The views were superb and we were able to see the Friday night winter fireworks which was a plus. The apartment was tastefully furnished, very clean & secure . Reception staff were friendly and helpful. Will stay again!
