Only 1 bedroom had air conditioning, there were no insect screens on the windows. The shower was horrible with the tiniest of doors for access. The bedrooms and air con smelt of stale cigarette smoke and car parking was barely adequate.

Rooms are outdated but adequate but good value when considering the price. We paid $110 a night for a one bed apartment. Kitchen only had minimal cooking items eg two small pots without lids, no frying pan. Everything else was good and clean. Parking was easy and off street and free. Budget accommodation but would stay here again.

This place should be condemned. It was dirty, crawling with ants and insects. The shower was horrible with black mound all over it. The kitchen extractor fan was covered in grease and insects. The staff were awful and tell blatant lies. Check out the room before you pay.

Dirty and unsafe. Don't stay there. The pictures are not of the building that you end up staying in. Basically it's a doss house with no redeeming qualities whatsoever. The staff really couldn't care less.

My wife and I booked into the City Edge apartments for a nice weekend away. We booked a double. What we got was the start of our disappointment. Our "double bed" was not a king bed or even a queen bed. In fact a double bed would have been great. What we got was two singles pushed together. This, considering...
