“2 Star maximum- really old and unkept”
Reviewed April 11, 2012

This property is shown as a 4star however the unit we stayed in 8th floor would be 2 star. It had not been updated in approx 28 years. Paint peeling, bare light bulbs - no light shades, fan only worked on high, towel rail falling off, furniture laminate pealing, kitchen and bathroom were very old original brown style, only one bedside reading light, rusting verandah etc. The rude lady on the front desk said "This is a standard ocean view unit the owner won't spend any money and we don't advertise it as 4 star only the outside building is 4 star". The lobby, cold pool and spa were all old and ugly with lots of garbage around. At 8 blocks from the action this was also a long way to walk. We moved to a unit at Surfers International much nicer, better location, cheaper and better views. Felt totally ripped off and embarrassed with the quality of this unit -definitely third world sub-standard. Apparently some units have been renovated but I wouldn't risk getting this one.

Room Tip: Demand only a renovated room there's one on the 12th floor - or move - when dissatisfied they we...

Excellent views of ocean. Each floor contains 4 units which are spacious. Apartments are clean and comfortable. Short walk to beach. Would definitely stay here again.

Ideal for enjoyable relaxing holiday. Clean, modern facilities, wonderful views of ocean, close to shops , clubs, beach. However guests are forced to watch old non digital televisions,Cable TV did not work and the heated pool was 'not heated'. Staff are unavailable after business hours and the room type/style/decor expectations of many tourists may prove disappointing.

Room Tip: Enquire on interior colour schemes and quality of ocean view.

Great place to stay..close to everything and the beach is just over the road. Fantastic views. Apartments very clean and quite modern. We had a 46" flat screen TV ..nice to have full Foxtel..but faulty...no red...we coped with green skin tones and the loud buzzing sound.. still ok.. but when the cigarette smoke invaded our apartment every night from smokers on their balconies in NON smoking rooms...we had to close our balcony doors and couldn't sit outside. Still good value if you don't mind smokers.

Stayed for 7 nights early Feb, stayed on 11th floor, beach views were outstanding. About 6 block walk to Cavil ave along beach. Northcliffe surf club is across the road and food is good and beach is patrolled, Apartment is very comfortable and up to date except for DVD player, Read a couple of other reviews so therefore bring your favourite coffee and own toiletries, which most people do anyway. Definatley a good place to stay

Room Tip: Higher the floors for better views

Just had a wonderful week staying in a two bedroom apartment at the Baronnet Apartments. We were on the 6th level on a corner and had a fabulous view (from big balcony) straight out to the Surfers Beach one way and to the Surfers high rises the other way. Our apartment was large, tastefully decorated and furnished and scrupiciously clean. The kitchen was huge and well equipped. Security was great and the only noises we heard were people noises from the street, nothing from other apartments. We didnt need much from reception but when we did, the ladies couldnt have been more friendly and helpful. Yes the pool was in the shade by afternoon but we found that a great relief from the hot surfers sun and the water was warm. Location wise, it couldnt have been better, 10 mins at the most to Cavill Ave and 1 minute to the beach. Would definately stay here again and would recommend to family and friends.

Reception lady rude and demeaning from the time we got to the apartment to checking out. I will never stay here again! Who stays in a hotel and pays extra for air-conditioning and toilet paper. I DO NOT recommend staying here to anyone and will be passing on my experiences to family and friends.
