The 2 bed apartment was spacious and well appointed but quite dated, especially the bathrooms, although there was plenty of hot water and good water pressure which are the most important things in a bathroom! The apartment was surface clean but skirting boards were thick with dust, several light bulbs didn't work, the wall clock didn't work and the bottom of my white socks were black after a few hours walking about. It is located quite a way from the CBD and restaurants, no problem if you are young and fit but you need a car if older or have young children. However being so far out meant it was lovely and quiet both day and night. Managers were friendly but reception has limited hours especially on the weekends. Also our flight got us in at midday but we had to wait around for a couple of hours before we could access our apartment as check-in is 2pm, but this is probably Flight Centre's fault for not telling us that.
