Fabulous 8.6 From 131 reviews

Very good 8.0
Great view
Fabulous location and great view from the balcony over the harbour The room was a bit dated, the curved glass wall from the bathroom to the kitchen/lounge area was hilarious. The soft furnishings could do with a refresh, they were musty. The reception staff were very friendly and efficient

Great location and sea views
Enjoyed our stay here. Spacious apartment, great sea views from the balcony, great location and friendly service. Couple negatives - the elevator noise and nearby works on building a hotel next door all night was noticed at times and the Facilities are gettin a little older and need some updating. Otherwise all good and recommended.

Apart from the weather, everything was perfect....close to all the shops, the esplanade pool, the marina and the casino! Thr room itself was nice, with nice views! The spa was enjoyable ;)
Michael, au3 night trip
Good 6.0
Location of apartment was great. So close to everything so very convenient. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. Room cleanliness however was not up to scratch. Dirty dishes in cupboards etc. had to wash everything before we could even use it. Floors were so dirty had to wear thongs in room the whole time otherwise feet were black and covered in dust and fluff within 5 min of getting out of shower. Clothes horse old and rusty and no where big enough. Was expecting dryer in room as we booked this place for the advertised full laundry facilities as we were away for several weeks. No dryer was in room only down in basement that meant endless trips down and back to even get the smallest of loads dry. Ended up spending $15 per load and this was after hanging clothes on hangers around door frames for 2 days before even putting in dryer. Also booked for being able to cook in room but this was not possible due to super sensitive smoke alarms. So ended up having to eat every meal out. We were paranoid the whole time about setting them off after being warned by staff and also by all the signage everywhere. Great being able to book day trips etc from only downstairs in the foyer. Would stay again for the location but only if staying for no more than 2 or 3 days.
