Good but tired
The place is nice enough. The reception lady was quick to attend when i contacted her via the reception phone. The room was large as was expected and the reason I got it. The bathrooms are a bit outdated and most things just seemed a bit tired. Beds on wheels on tiles meaning bed goes for a slide easy. All these things are small, but together take the wow factor away from the property. Having foxtel and freee NBN was nice though.Nice and quiet and location good. I would consider staying here again next time but would also compare options with others first.

Adequate but not all room equal standard
Self contained facilities for families to make meals, location was right on the water.
We booked three 2bed rooms for a family group. Two of the rooms were ok but the third was quite dated. Between the rooms we gathered adequate pots and pans to make some meals. The location is on the water but was about a 15min walk to any cafes, restaurants etc. The staff were fine and had our room ready by midday. Overall the place has a bit of wear and tear.

Exactly what we wanted
Clean and tidy. Great views. Had everything we wanted. Very comfortable.
We loved our stay here. We have a baby and a 4 yo and had family visit us at the apartment. It was clean, spacious and had fantastic views over the water and mountains and grassy esplanade. They provided us with a cot and high chair and the beds were very comfortable. The apartment had everything we needed in the kitchen and the laundry. We would happily stay here again.
