It is basic level accommodation but the location and price of the apartment were good for us. The room was clean and bed comfy. The reception staff were very helpful and I loved the fact I could prepare basic meals and had a free car park.

Friendly staff, great central location, standard older style apartment/unit with all of the basics. Cons would be only one heat pump in the main room and no where else? The blankets on the beds are thin so it's freezing for the second room & lounge! Suggestion - thicker blankets or electric blankets AND perhaps oil heaters for each unit, it... More

We stayed here for two nights recently as a family. The hotel is in a great location, making it very easy to get to the city. We booked a deluxe studio apartment. Unfortunately there was nothing deluxe about the room. Very dated. Mould in the bathroom as there was no exhaust fan. Paint flaking on walls and sink. We had... More

Whilst it was close to CBD, they did not organise our booking properly we booked and paid for a room with two separate beds, double and single,for two adults. Room was only one double. They were going to make us deal with this, we were not a couple. But there was a cancellation and we ended up with two bedroom... More

Nothing good to say. Heater doesn't work, no hot water, dirty, noisy, with a ridiculously small car park which you can't use if you don't want your car damaged. No reception after 6.00 and people coming and going at all hours of the night. Don't bother, terrible, terrible, terrible.

Wont stay again, room was very dirty and plenty of things were broken. Shower was leaking the whole time, mould in alcove, toilet was broken, furniture was dirty and broken etc. Carpet dirty. Appears to be very little maintenance done. Oven had build up of who knows what. Definitely not ideal for families with small children.

We stayed in the Tribeca apartments attached to the City Edge apartments with my parents in law. The location and parking was terrific and the size of the apartment was very good. The main issue was that the second bedroom lacked a window. It was consequently very dark and also really lacked ventilation. The main bedroom was lovely, but the... More

We had stayed with city edge previously and tried them again. We stayed at the Gipps address in room 14. The unit is well laid out but needs a good overall paint and bath renovation. The shower door had a broken handle on the inside so was had to shut. The toilet seat was old paint flaking off. If they... More

We chose this apartment as it suited our family (2 adults and a 2 year old). The space worked well as there was a separate lounge and kitchen to the lounge room however the entire apartment was very dated and due for a makeover; paint ageing, uncomfortable bed/ pillows and couch, stained carpets, bath enamel chipped, broken hooks etc. There...
