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!

Thank you for your review Chris G, as mentioned our central location on the free city tram route is a real plus. The fireworks are on every Friday night during July and August and have been extremely popular. See you again soon! More

Stayed here with friends for 5 nights in July. Thoroughly impressed by the service and standard of the apartment we stayed in. The reception was friendly, helpful and very approachable. The apartment overlooked the water, was clean, well-equipped and just a few metres from the tram stop (not that you hear it from the apartment at all). I wouldn't hesitate... More

Docklands was quiet. Free tram ride into town 5mins. Lots of restaurants at docklands and supermarkets for choice or into town. Lots of boats to see. Docklands was good value for money. Lovely apartment though we had bedroom at back overlooking train lines into Southern Cross. Was noisy in early mornings moving rail stock. But still worth it. Fantastic apartment.... More

You are absolutely correct JWPortinscale, Docklands is just out of the city so it is nice and quiet yet you are still so close to everything particularly with the tram stops at our doorstep. More

The apartment was fitted out with every convenience for a long stay. Security was of a high order with touch pads on the downstairs front door and lifts, and a remote control lock for the car park. Sharing the building with 6 floors of office space was a bit different. Apartments are on the 7th floor at the top of... More
