6/10 Good

Lovely views but disappointed with service
If you intend to cook in these apartments, be aware that there is an undisclosed $10/night charge for the use of pots and pans. When we asked reception to confirm where this information could be found on their website, they advised that this information is not advertised. We booked here because kitchen facilities was a priortity of ours. Be aware that you may get a wake up call from housekeeping on the morning of your check out requesting your check out time ahead of the hotel's scheduled time. Housekeeping was not very attentive. Some days we got tea refills, other days we did not. Some days the bed was partially made, other days no issues. Overall, wonderful views of the lake and bay and a very comfy bed but would not choose to stay again.

6/10 Good

Good but poor housekeeping
It was very nice, the room was large and modern with a balcony and good views, the bed was comfy, it was quiet and the reception staff were friendly. It was let down by the cleanliness/housekeeping - when I arrived (at night) there was only a less than 1/5th roll of toilet paper folded over on the holder and no spare, the toilet wasn’t properly cleaned, there was dried toothpaste over the bathroom cabinet handles, the desk lamp didn’t work (I tried to use it because otherwise the lighting in the room is very low), there were long hairs on the bathroom floor and bits of chips and other things underfoot on the main floor, so it seemed like it hadn’t been vacuumed. Checkout was at 10am but I had housekeeping knocking on my door at 9:50am wanting to clean the room. I advised reception of a couple of these things but I only had a short stay and wasn’t asked on checkout.
