The property was in a lovely location but a bit rundown though the new managers were making repairs. I would say it will be wonderful once they have it all done

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

A great property in a quiet location. We had a spacious one bedroom apartment. The balcony was a quiet spot to enjoy the sights and calmness of Yorkey's knob.

Not happy

Our room needed a serious update. The lounge and bedroom furniture were very uncomfortable. The bedroom was quite hot at night even with the fan and aircon going. The robe was small and inadaquate for extended stays, as were the kitchen cupboards. We got limited to no phone reception in our room. In our two week stay the sheets and towels were changed however there was no other housekeeping done. Numerous other problems that were not up to a satisfactory standard.

Stayed 14 nights in Oct 2018
