We loved the location and the excellent value for money. We booked a three night low season special rate which was difficult to match. The one bedroom garden apartment we stayed in was recently refurbished with new kitchen and bathroom, tasteful modern furniture, large plasma TV and overlooking the beautiful river. The apartment was small with open plan living (no door on the bedroom), but adequate for two. Offshore is at the end of a row of restaurants/shops on the river front - very easy to stroll to one of the many restaurants on Gympie Terrace, many of which allow BYO (buy your wine from Woolworths or Dan Murphys - the local bottle shop is way too $$$). Faults? The bed was as hard as a rock and very small - most modern one bedroom apartments have a king size bed these days - and it was difficult to escape the noise of the busy river front with the sliding door open. The pool was small and overcrowded during the day, but magic at night for a swim under the stars when other guests had taken their children back to their apartments. It's a shame it closes so early at 9 pm when adults want a quiet swim without children splashing. The staff were very accommodating when booking and checking in, but it would have been nice to be informed prior to booking (we booked a few days before arrival) that the painters were currently working on the exterior of the building and had scaffolding up, blocking the pathway to the garage. Our privacy in the garden apartment was virtually non-existent with the painters hovering all around the building most of the day. Also, given that we had to wait until 5 pm to check in (instead of 1 pm) due to wet paint, the staff could have been more accommodating when we requested a late check out, but insisted on sticking to 10 am because the cleaners needed to have the apartment ready for new arrivals at 1 pm. There is no way it would have taken 3 hours to clean the apartment, but we had to accept their refusal. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would come back again, but only to the fully renovated apartments (I think they are privately owned) as some still have old bathrooms.
