Location 9/10 Price 4/10 Room 6/10 Service 3/10 Facilities 7/10 Location is very good but rooms are dated and a little dirty. At 1430 out room was not ready for check in. This was not a problem until our check out. Early flight so up early. 8.55am desk unattended so room emptied. Car packed and off we went to breakfast.... More

We are a little confused as to the contents of this review, firstly, whilst a staff member was setting the apartment when you arrived, by no means did this create a delay, you were checked in, went down to park and by the time you came back from the car park the apartment was ready for you to walk in...

We stayed for 9 nights in apartment 12. Lovely and spacious. The queen size bed was perfect but the two singles were far too short for adult sized people. It would have been good to be able to get an extra roll away bed but was not allowable. There was a lot of outside street noise but expected that. Staff... More

Hi Lyn, Thank you for taking the time to review us on trip advisor, we appreciate the feedback. The complex as a whole have chosen to implement a rule to have no roll ways or extra mattresses in the apartments, the beds provided are all that we can offer our guests. We appreciate this is not always convenient, but we... More

When we first arrived we went to have a cuppa all the cups had black stuff inside them - most of the crockery had to be hand washed and several kitchen items were broken. Not good enough when you pay nearly $400 per night. But great position straight acorss from the beach.

We do apologise as two cups were brought to reception that were not in an acceptable state, however upon further inspection of the apartment once this was brought to our attention, we did not find any cracked or broken crockery or any other dirty items. We have reminded our cleaning contractors that they need to thoroughly check all items in... More

My family and I stayed in apartment 7 for 3 nights.. Everything felt quite old and used. There were 6 of us and we had two cars but only one of the garage remotes worked... The manager knew about this but didn't really offer any apology and only having one remote was really inconvenient. The kitchen wasn't very clean and... More

We stayed here for a week during the October 2013 school holidays and had a 3 bedroom apartment on the first floor. It was pricey compared to what our friends were paying in other areas of Byron Bay but as far as we were concerned it was worth it. You can walk to everything from here - shops, restaurants, beach,... More

Had an incredible trip with the family, The staff were so friendly and helpful and the apartments (we had two) were immaculate and luxurious, we have already re-booked and our son and fiancee are going to spend their honeymoon there. So many little extras you don't expect from "non-serviced" apartments, even a mini-bar!! Price is a little steep, but absolutely... More

Am still recovering after being treated so badly by management. Stayed a night and planned to stay another, left quickly after that first night. Unbelievable that such people (both, him and her) in the tourist accommodation business actually exist.

Happy to be part of a family gathering all staying at the same property. We had certain expectations for $646 (half the fare for 3 nights for a two bedroom apartment).
