Ok - a little tired and worn
Check in was easy - staff super friendly and helpful. Apartment was clean however very tired and worn. Air conditioning unit leaked and you could hear the water hitting the carpet. I probably woulld stay again on business, not as a family as there is no pool.

We stayed in a 2BR apartment. It a bit old and some furniture was damaged. The second bathroom was small and toiletries was diluted.

10/10 Exceptional

The Staff at the property were caring and efficient. We were evacuees from the current flooding in Victoria and we were made to feel so welcome and safe as exhausted from the long drive. Information on where to dine was also most helpful and this property in a convenient location from the CBD with a myriad of dining choices all within a short walking distance
