A group of us have been friends since meeting in Sydney in the early 80's and some years back we decided we should all get together every year or two altho we're spread out around the country. As it was we decided on Melbourne as it was easiest for us all to get to. Little did I realise when I... More

I booked a girls weekend away to Melbourne as a surprise for my mum's Birthday. We stayed Friday and left Monday. It was sort of a last minute idea so I couldn't opt for a more pricey apartment but still wanted to stay somewhere nice & a good location. There were 4 of us and I chose the 2 bedroom,... More

This place was really good. We never had to wait for lifts, reception staff were really helpful. The aircon was fantastic in the heat wave. Close to everything. The apartment itself had plenty of room.

There are some great things going on here, like the location, but overall I cant say that I'm excited. Great view from the 37th floor, but cold and uninviting place. The hall is white on white and not at all welcoming, you are grateful for the light colours, as there is no lighting! An energy saving thing, but when the... More

Great location to Southbank, Casino, City and Arts precinct. Even South Melbourne markets and restaurans are walking distance. The 2 bedroom apartment was great for family of four with teenagers for a long stay of four days or more. Will stay again. Only small issue is the service to the apartment is a bit lacking forgot to leave towels in... More

Stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment on the 7th floor with a city view for 2 nights with our kids. It was great value for money. View was good, location was good. Apartment a reasonable size and self contained. Only thing I would strongly suggest is the glass balustrading desperately needed washing and the apartment required a good paint job... More

We booked 2 apartments for a work function (1 x twin beds, 1 x Queen) for 2 nights last week. when we first got there the reception guy tried to charge double for one of the rooms until I pointed it out. Then he gave us only 1 key for our room, when we got to our room we found... More

Having asked for twin one-bedroom apartment we were upgraded to a two-bedroom apartment without any explanation. Welcome but entailed a check with reception after arrival. We had also asked to be high up away from traffic noise but were level with the flyover so could not open the windows much or go onto the balcony. The apartment was clean and... More
