Pool is much smaller than looks in photo and was not full. Okay if don't want to swim laps. Was very disappointed when I arrived to find parking was $20 a night. I looked on website and could not find mention of paid parking. It is one of the reasons I booked here. Room was nice and clean, fairly quiet. Good location within walking distance of Southbank pools and market.

Quieter than most”

Small block with the option of a balcony unit at the back, away from the main road. Friendly staff. The ground floor hosts a bar area connected to an outdoors entertaining area, and a cafe that's open til late. Rooms have all you need for one or two people. Near enough to both West End and Southbank to walk, also close to Southbank bus and train station. Clean. New. lovely.

A stylish hidden oasis around the corner from everything you need.”

We had to walk to our hotel from the transit centre, so when we arrived to a cute red carpet and a friendly face, it was refreshing. Checking in was fast and efficient. The room was private,peaceful & stylish. We loved the spa with the tv above it. Kitchen was great, only it was a little tricky eating in the room with my two year old. However, she was free and a child friendly hotel was hard to find, so no complaints. Despite being surrounded in buildings, the rooftop was serene. We spent a lot of time up there. The kids loved the pool and I loved the choice of seats - All really comfortable. Overall a great stay.

Clean, new and modern. Not a great location. Not quite what I thought it was going to be. ”

Very new clean and modern hotel. Stylish and lovely look. Alot smaller hotel then i thought it would be. I didn’t love the location. I thought i would have a better view of southbank. I also couldn’t keep my blinds open as all the rooms in the adjacent hotels where very close and could see straight into my room. Staff where very helpful and professional. Probably wouldn’t stay again due to view/location.

Customer service is important!”

On arrival at apartment at 1.15pm was informed straight away before any greeting that our room would probably not be ready at this hour!! ... Check in was 2pm. The man was very stern looking and lacking in personality. Real shame as we have stayed there before and the woman was just lovely. Charged for parking and was no charge the first time we stayed. There are so many places to stay in the city unfortunately we won’t stay here again. When I arrive at a place I like to be greeted at least with a smile. This man was just plain rude. A smile costs nothing and making your customers welcome costs nothing either . Maybe he would be better behind the scenes.

Not a good sleep for us”

We are sorry to give this review, because the room was very impressive upon arrival, but I have to say for us a see through toilet wall was quite undesirable. We have stayed in many motels where there are glass partitions between the living area and the bathroom, but this one is RIGHT NEXT TO THE BED, and whilst I'm really comfortable with my husband, I would rather he not see me wiping my back side whilst he's watching the TV!!! We also found the air conditioner situated above the bed put out an annoying green light all night and was not too effective in maintaining our temperature, and there is also a long white light on the TV that shines very brightly. Picky??.. maybe, but when you want to sleep... you want to sleep.

Great place but requires some love”

A place with great potential, but it is obvious not looked after very well. Pool was very dirty and some dirt in the rooms. Also cafe was burnt, greesy and cold upon delivery to room service. When visiting it at lunch all tables had cleaning liquid sprayed on it but not wiped so we could not sit down albeit the palce being empty. In the morning, when should have been open at 6.30am as per note in the window, was still closed at 7am, with all lights off, but door open. Very strange.. Steve was amazing and should be running the place as with a couple of changes could be an amazing place! We did enjoy our stay however and will most likely be back. Good luck with fixing it up!

Everything was nice but the only things that could have been been better were: 1. The bathroom layout, the toilet was right in front of the door and the bottom of the door was see through plus a window next to the toilet that looked at the bed. 2. The gym was tiny. Other than that it was great.

This location is great. About 500m from the beach area. Car parking made travelling a lot easier. Safe walking distance to West End area and the river boat cruises. BBQ on the roof of the hotel and a nice swimming pool. Only thing I'd change is the see-through glass door into the bathroom toilet area when lying in your bed. Great value for money :)
