Itara apartments are in a great location on the Ross River, with lovely paths for the kids to ride their scooters on. The cafe is a short stroll and is great for Breakfast. The Lady at the front was really friendly and helpful. The room we stayed in needed a few things like the carpets cleaned as they were stained,... More

Great view of the river from the balcony and in the morning sitting watching the walkers with their dogs and the occasional runners was very relaxing. Fitted out quite well, if I were to make a comment, it would be the couch is a little small for two. Walking distance to restaurants.

What a beautiful riverside location for walks or just watch the world and nature at its best. Even though I was not on holidays, the surroundings made it feel like I was having one. Security is top notch for the car park, access via the lifts or for each separate complex that housed the apartments. Could not fault the amenities... More

Stayed in a 0ne bedroom apartment on the 2nd floor. lovely view of the river, sooo glad it faced the river as we could hear the traffic even from there, which was quite constant from daybreak to about 10pm. The unit was clean and tidy although the beds were hard. There were 3 of us and quite annoying to find... More
