My husband and I have stayed here quite a few times. Each time we have found the rooms to be clean and the staff fantastic. The manager Bill-Joh is excellent she is always friendly and goes out of her way to make sure our stay is perfect. I would recommend staying at the observatory apartments. Its so close to the jetty and restaurants its the perfect spot for a weekend getaway.
You have every thing you need free internet, pay t.v, aircon, ocean views all the comforts of home. Can't wait for our next visit.

Stayed here for a touch football tournament. Lady who greeted us and other staff on site went out if their way to make us welcome and comfortable. Place is pretty basic but great views. Beds comfortable, kitchen works well. Unfort tile floor was a bit unexpected for us touch football people that need to stretch. Beware the train noise. The place is right outside the station and while it didn't worry us there were trains coming through at all hours. Can recommend this place.

My friend and I stayed at The Observatory over the weekend of the flooding, storms. We had a fantastic, spacious apartment in a good spot at Port. As we were up high, we were out of harms way and found the staff service exemplary. In particular Alicia, who went out of her way to assist us with anything we needed. I would definitely stay there again.

We recently stayed at a two bedroom apartment. It was very clean and spacious with good facilities. The staff were very helpful. The location is excellent, just a short walk to several restaraunts and the harbour.
