Hot water
The hot water took quite a long time to warm up when we first arrived in the evening. We had to run the hot water for quite a long while before it was warm, hence a lot of wasted water. It would be more water efficient if the hot water can be warmed up faster.

Handy location
Good value accommodation within an easy walk to restaurants at Manuka, Kingston Foreshore & Kingston Shopping precinct. The hotel's restaurant is ok but there are better options nearby.

Overnight stay
An enjoyable overnight stay, good location close to CBD and places to eat. Value for money, a home away from home. Friendly helpful staff.

Nice apartment, helpful staff
The apartment was clean and well equipped. We did not go out for dinner but cooking in kitchen. We left the car key in the car. The staff help us to call the locksmith.
