Situated right in the centre of Rockhampton the locaton is ideal. Big rooms, clean, nice pool. Parking is available but if the car park is full street parking is easy to find. Restautants, pubs and coffee shop close by The staff were excellent and really went over and above to help us with an situation we had. Would recommend.

We had a river view room on the 7th floor which was lovely. Very large, comfortable apartment with great appliances. Friendly staff and very clean. Pool area is great and location is very good. The view over the river was nice. Easy walk down the esplanade to see the heritage buildings. Very convenient having a lovely Coffee Club downstairs for Breakfast, lunch or just coffee. Easy stroll to the Criterion Hotel for awesome dinners or drinks. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Very clean, fairly spacious, new, modern, well-equipped apartments in a great location right on the river (get a river view room!) with a choice of restaurants on-site, and Coles is only a block away if you want to self-cater. High quality amenities in the bathroom, nice to have T2 tea as well. TV could be bigger these days and have built-in streaming apps. Be aware the "king" apartment is not really a king - bed was two singles pushed together and you could feel the gap in the middle! Rooms are serviced and replenished daily which is a nice surprise, many "apartment hotels" are too lazy or cheap to do this. Fairly quiet overall, no external noise, but if you are unlucky enough to have a herd of elephants above you (as I did one morning) then it can be very annoying!

Steve, thank you for your review and comments. I will have our housekeeping team check the mattress topper as we haven't had any other issues from guests. The bed size is a king zip bed which allows us the accommodated guest request of 2 king singles. I am please that you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you back when next in Rockhampton. Tony Cullen General Manager

Currently staying in 0104 Deluxe King Apartment with River View until 30 December. Upstairs has been stomping most of the day. The concrete floors are quite soundproof however upstairs are continually stomping with no let up despite being spoken to by reception. I stated that this is a PARTY. They claim to have a “NO PARTY” policy but appear to be unwilling or unable to enforce it. I don’t know how we will sleep tonight - 28 December and tomorrow 29 December before 30 December checkout. No wonder it is noisy as the parents are on the yelling balcony, it’s a little wonder they cannot control their kids. Can’t relax, watch TV or read a book in peace.

Stayed here a few months ago and the apartments are well equipped for anyone looking for a basic kitchenette where you can prepare your own meals. Shopping centre is available in the next block and good restaurants downstairs if you wish to eat out.
