Hi Brenero, I am very sorry about the circumstances of your most recent stay. As I am sure you will be aware from your previous stay's that this is certainly not our usual standard and as you have mentioned is in no way acceptable.

Good location, apartments are a little older than other accommodation in the area. My apartment was nice, beds comfortable. Staff were friendly, gym wasn't that great but pool was nice. Not much parking.

I paid $44 for a roll away bed and got a set of sheets on a hard uncomfortable pull out sofa - hardly $44 worth. Receptionist would not reverse a credit card charge but instead proceeded to charge me a fee. Not happy

I stayed here for 4 nights for a company conference. The rooms were good without being great. The amenities were also adequate. There is a number of nice restaurants/cafes/pubs in the vicinity to keep everyone happy.

Rooms are very spacious and clean. Two bathrooms and toilets very handy. Love how you can split the king beds into singles for group of girlfriends on weekend away. Handy to walk to restaurants and mall as well.

Helpful staff & well maintained room. The pool was lovely. Everything was clean. The bed was a little firm for our liking but the room was great. It was central to everything we wanted & needed. We will return again.

2 bedroom apartment was nice on 7th floor. Reception service was good as usual. Nice pool and spa. Good location. Apartment was dirty and each day the standard of cleaning service was very poor. No replenishment of tea, coffee, sugar or dishwashing powder, had to go to reception and ask for it.
