Firstly, I want to say I chose these apartments, having bought a discount ie $114/night deal.
My apartment was comfortable and, apart from the carpets, was in good condition. The bathroom was pleasant, the bed was comfortable, the balcony had a great view and it was a good choice from that perspective.
However there were some hiccups. I woke the second morning to find a man entering the room. He did leave when I shouted out as he was a repair man who had come to fix the TV. (I had not complained about the foxtel as I did not use it.) I reported the incident afterwards and I was eventually told that there had been a mix up and the man had entered the wrong apartment. This acknowledgment took a while to come and I did receive an apology, but IT FREAKED ME OUT!
The third day one of the lifts was stuck, so I chose, with others to descend the emergency stairs to ground floor. As that door was locked we were unable to exit until someone opened the door for us.
The third night, I was woken by someone who was trying to get in to my apartment. After the previous experiences I just rang reception and someone came. I heard him speaking to a young man and he sent him off.
The prices for the internet are expensive and I complained. Howeever I had been warned by others.
The people who work there have a good attitude and although I had several dramas- 4 days and I slept very badly I think it was just a crazy confluence of events.
the pool and spa was great and I used them each day. The view from the spa is just lovely. I found people to be happy and friendly when i wa sin the pool/spa area.
