This property is definitely no 4.5 star, location aside it would struggle to scrape in with a 4 star rating.
What I like about the property is the location and the staff who are friendly, personable and helpful, but that's about where the Pro's end and the Con's begin.
For starters the apartments are very dated, worn in alot of places (see pic of dining suite), dirty/stained (see pic of blood or some other stain on the kitchen floor) and stink from over use of chemical cleaners which gave myself and everyone else in the apartment a rotten headache.
As if the apartments aren't over priced for the quality received already, when we were forced to ask for a sofabed/rollaway to accommodate the 4th person due to the second bedroom only having a Queen bed in it (it was a couple and 2 single males) we were slugged $45 for the privilege.
Now I can fully appreciate that there are costs involved with utilizing bed linen and that if I was attempting to accommodate a 5th person I would expect to pay it, but given they chose to put a Queen in place of 2 singles in the second room, it seems a bit rich to be charging a guest when they can't even accommodation 4 people in existing bedding.
The quality of sleep wasn't fantastic due to the level of noise (even on the 25th floor) from both the rail and people screaming in the street, not a brilliant location if you like a quiet nights sleep.
Overall I wouldn't recommend the property unless you have to be based in Chatswood, as great as the location and staff are the property itself is way overpriced for what you're getting and the circa early 90s decor just doesn't cut it for a property that promotes itself as a 'Sebel Premium' 4.5 star property.
