“The most amazing Penthouse I've stayed in so far!”
Reviewed December 6, 2010

Highly recommend the Penthouse suite 'Crystal'. I was so surprised of the views in this apartment, the immaculate Decor and the standard of this suite. Staff were friendly and helpful. Would love to stay again!

Attempted to book a room via prestige apartments - recieved nothing but arrogance - pricing changes by the day - non returning of calls and total disinterest in taking my booking - I thought I'd speak to the owner to let them know how the ship was run whilst the captain was away , and nothing was said - word on the street is this is a common occurance at docklands prestige apartments - let it be known I found friendly helpful service with mecure apartments docklands and they will be utilized in the 6 seperate occasions I require in 2011 (that's $15,000 worth of accomodation you have missed out on Beverly )

I absolutely loved this holiday. We were met outside our building and escorted to our room. The lady told us all about the area and what we could do that night.
The apartment was simply stunning. Floor to ceiling wall to wall windows with views straight over the water and to the city. The rooms themselves were so stylish i felt like i was in a vogue magazine. It was as good as the pictures on their web site.
We ate every night along the water, and explored the lane ways of the city.
Wish i could live there

It was a long stay that was promised to us will be a 4.5 stars quality which turned out to be a nightmare! Neighbours broke into our apartment and stole some items! The room was very dirty and the cleaners came up within 30 min of our arrival with windex and tea towels to clean carpet and sofa stains!!! There was no adequate cooking utensils provided, air con didn't work even when the temperature was mid 20..they promised us 6 outdoor dining chairs with huge balcony, but when we got there there were 4 chairs and very squashy balcony. When the issues were raised with staff, they didn't want to hear about it!!! They were very rude and inconsiderate! Docklands Prestige apartments the worst stay ever!!!!

I dont have a bad thing to say for this apartments, the receptionists were very friendly, willing to store our luggage at our early arrival and our late flights out. We had a 2 bed/2bath apartment and it was awesome on the 18th floor, rooms were fine, showers had the best pressure in ages and could easily stay there again. Its really close to the Dome, DFO and Harbourtown so no complaints! Plenty of restaurants like the Bhoj which is really nice indian.

Just stayed in a one bedroom apartment at Docklands Prestige Apartments for 3 nights over the F1 weekend (we could actually hear the cars from the balcony). Overall the apartment was terrific. We were lucky enough to get a corner apartment on the 5th floor of a 5 storey buidling, right on the waters edge with a great wrap around balcony. The views are amazing, stretching out over the city skyline, Etihad stadium and marina. You enter the building from the restaurant promenade, so you don't have to go far to eat. There is also an IGA, bottle shop, bakery, and pretty much everything else you need within a 2 minute walk. Prices are a little high but I guess you are paying for the convenience and lack of retail competition within the Docklands complex.

The aparment itself is quite smart and well thought out. Modern kitchen with dishwasher, oven, microwave, toaster, all utensils, etc. Washer and dryer smartly disguised in the corridor, iron and ironing board included, vacuum. There is even a small study with internet access should you choose (I'm sure this is extra though). Foxtel with all channels provided, which was great.

The only dissapointment was that the rooms are only serviced every 7 days and you are only supplied with 3 x dishwashing tablets, 2 x rolls of toilet paper, 1 tiny sample size shampoo, conditioner, shower gel (which we used by the second day) per 7 day stay and additional amenities were not available, even though I called to request extra toilet paper, and was told no. There are also no extra blankets provided, so bring your own in the colder months.

Overall though, we had a fantastic stay and will definitely be booking this apartment again!
