Very large one bedroom apartment with views of the Ross river on the 4 floor. Full kitchen and laundry a balcony to sit outside. Large shower, full size fridge freezer, home away from home. We arrived on a public holiday and reception was closed but the intercom service was amazing, quick check in service. Free wifi and free parking.

These rooms were ok.. we stayed here for three nights travelling through with our baby & 2yo. It suited our needs somewhat however they are in need of an upgrade & not as clean as they should be therefore I won't stay here again.

I was a bit hesitant to stay at these apartments because of the other reviews but I was glad I did. The apartment was very bang for buck and had good facilities. The carpet wasn't immaculate like the other reviews said, but this wasn't a big deal to me. Overall the apartment was clean and everything was working as it...

We travelled at night and as previously mentioned the establishment is poorly signed for night time arrival. BIG TIP; set your GPS to 520 Flinders instead of 4 Aplin and you will find easier ALSO look for a VIVO sign instead of a Best Western at night time as the B/W sign is just a small sandwich board on the...

We felt this hotel was over-rated. The units were directly behind a half empty massive office block and surprise, surprise, our unit like most of them, was not located with the view promoted on the website. Think housing commission towers and you’re close. The entrance wasn't well signposted and it wasn't very clear how we were supposed to get our...

This hotel was rated 4.5 STAR however more like 3 star. The room wasn't very clean when we arrived which was after 4pm. Reception closes early weeknights and isn't open weekends. We asked for carpet and couch to be steam cleaned as it was filthy and they did. The bathrooms could do with a good thorough clean. Location was ok...

The hotel was quite good value. We had a spacious two bedroom/two bathroom apartment. Well furnished and equipped. However, the reception hours were somewhat limited, only 9-5 Monday to Friday. The building was very secure with a gated entrance 24/7. Signage to the hotel was not very good if arriving after hours in the dark. The one sign post was...

Stayed for two nights prior to relocating south. Very friendly check in and provided details of early check out routine without having to ask. The room itself was great. One bedroom, separate lounge, balcony with seating and a large bathroom with washing machine and dryer. Neat and clean. Secure parking with lift access. Gym (with vending machine) and pool.

Excellent location, only a 5 -10 minute walk to the CBD. The apartment we stayed in for 8 nights was a 2 bed, 2 bathroom self-contained apartment (with a perfectly acceptable laundry in a cupboard including a dryer and clothes airer). An open planed apartment with full kitchen amenities, dining for 4 and a lounge area leading out onto the...
