Bus driver dropped us right at door step due to the amount of luggage we had. Normal pick up and drop off is across the road in driveway of another hotel.
Easy to find, our first stay here. Around the back of Crowne Casino. Apartment was not ready when we arrived and we where aware of this as early plane from Sydney. Apartment was ready right on 2pm as advertised.
Apartment good sized rooms and cleverly decorated. All rooms where spotlessly clean. Apartment are not serviced daily unless you pay a separate fee. Fill sized fridge, under bench oven, microwave, full dishwasher, washer and dryer. Glasses and crockery clean. Pots and pans needed a good scrub. Building manager onsite was very chatty and helpful. Bedroom had great storage and bed was to die for sooo comfortable. Ducted heating in our apartment so did not have to use dryer.
Did not get to use pool or gym over the 5 day stay as each time went down to this area lots of students using both facilities.
Location was great just far enough out of city to get away from hussle and bussell but only 10 mins walk into city centre for shopping and theatres . Southbank eateries 5 mins walk and availability of any type of food you could want. Crown Casino across the road for casino, shows, picture theatre. Supermarkets for self catering 10 mins walk down the road. Free city tour bus 3 mins walk away visit main city sights hop on of bus , full circuit takes 1 1/2 hrs.
What more could you want??
SUGGESTION - please leave some pot scores and paper towelling in kitchen. Ironing board that works would be good and clothes horse would be handy. ALL minor things.
Overall apartment and location was extremely convenient and comfortable.
