Mixture of old and modern, secure, comfortable place to stay. Nice warm doonas, but I just wish in places as cold as Canberra we could have flannelette sheets, though I understand that would be a nightmare to wash and dry that many. Electric blankets could be an option? Our air-con heated up the place fine after a short while (Freezing cold while we were waiting for the air con to heat up!). Beds could have been a little more comfortable, but it hard to please everyone. Bathroom was a little tired looking but clean and functioned well, especially the nice hot old fashioned shower head! So hard to get these days. Another positive, the place seemed to be sound proof, except for hearing the other rooms toilet after they flushed it, but didn't really bother us, we have heard worse! Our toilet took ages to stop refilling the cistern and was also rather noisy, we just made sure we used the half flush. On the down side, the kitchen was pretty poorly supplied with cooking utensils. Went to make some pasta and the saucepan was tiny and then discovered it was the same story with the frying pan, weird. Too bad if we planned to cook every night! They got little details right that others don't like powder for the dishwasher and a decent iron and hairdryer, yet there was no washing powder for the washing machine, not even for one night's worth. One think I REALLY appreciated was our apartment being serviced EVERY DAY! Made my holiday with kids was so much more relaxing! Everywhere else I have stayed, even when I have stayed at 4.5 star places, will not service the apartment more than once a week if you stay more than a few days. Overall not bad if you are out all day. Nice service at the reception too, thank you. P.S. the big mirror in the living/dining room worked well, gave it a nice feel and made the room feel bigger.
