March 2013 - We booked two, two bedroom apartments side by side. The rooms were very comfortable, clean, and very roomy. All cooking utensil provided as needed. The views from the sith floor were excellent to the water and breakwall. The location was as central as you can get to the CBD, the shops, pubs, restaurants, breakwall walkways. The coastal path passes by Rydges frontdoor so walk out from breakfast or walking in to breakfast from your morning stroll. The beach is a nearby stroll. The wharf is right there. The entertainment surrounds you. The shopping precinct is there however the groceries and shopping precinct is at Settlement City a few kilometres downriver. The service from the restaurant was good at 10pm at night. The breakfast menu was very good and full breakfast between $23 & 26 pp. Nearby pancakes and other cafes are available with a $12 full breakfast at the entrance to the Port Central shopping mall, well worth the added 50metre stroll. The pool is first floor overlooking the river and beneath the apartment verandahs. The gym (not used this trip) out was well fitted out, clean and well maintained equipment (not wornout like some locations previously visited.) We paid $594 an apartment booking a month prior to travel. If you shop around with Rydges I'm sure you could get a better deal with water views at different times.
