“Roaches.................”
Reviewed January 15, 2013 for a stay in December 2012

As previous visitors to the Wharf Escape Apartments, we had high expectations for this visit. Unfortunately, we were faced with cockroaches and consequently lost two days of being able to enjoy our visit due to battling with the vermin and bombing the apartment. We had previously encountered roaches in the apartment and advised the owner however we presumed that the problem would have been rectified.

Other issues included broken kitchen/bbq equipment, a stove that would not ignite and lights that didn't work.

The owner was very unsupportive of our issues, blamed everything on her cleaning team, suggested that she had no control over the condition of the apartment and refused to compensate us for our lost accomodation time and purchase of insect repellants.

Our cleaner offered to come into the apartment and inspect and clean out any cockroaches present, but her offer was not accepted - thus maybe not such a big problem after all??? The cleaner also noted that she had not seen any cockroaches before the guest arrived and there had not been any reports beforehand from other guests. As the apartments are pest controlled every year, these types of problems, if they occur, cannot be foreseen. We rely on guest feedback to make sure the apartments are well maintained. We also respond to all guests during their stay if there are any problems with furniture and fittings. On this occasion we were not given the chance to rectify any problems that arised until after the guest departed and advised us of problems that they experienced. We cannot be expected to be held liable for any guest expenses or negative experiences that may occur due to personal issues or incorrect decisions, as was the case with this particular guest. I feel it is unfair to leave such negative feedback, especially since we were not notified of any problems until after departure. Thank you to all the previous guests who have enjoyed the apartments and left positive feedback, unfortunately there is always one bad apple in the crate!

“Lovely apartment”
Reviewed April 25, 2012 for a stay in April 2012

We spent 8 nights in Wharf Escape 1, a lovely apartment, well appointed & comfortable with great airconditioning, this was much nicer than a hotel for 2 couples travelling together. The apartment is only a 6 - 7 minute walk into town.
We have already recommended this apartment to 2 people & we will stay again next time we travel to Darwin.
