6/10 Good

The property was a short stroll to the Marina and there were dining options available onsite and nearby. Our room was a little tired and the couch provided in the room needs to be replaced as it was most uncomfortable and had no support. It was a similar situation with the support of the bed. The shower pressure and shower room were good though.

2/10 Poor

I booked this apartment through wotif as everything was booked out and the photos looked decent for this place. When booking online I was given the option to pay on arrival which I chose. I was quite confused when I recieved a call from staff the morning of arrival to say they had tried to charge my card but were unable to as it had in sufficient funds. The staff member was really rude and sounded desperate for my payment. I was travelling quite a distance to get to the apartment that day and explained that I would pay on arrival. I recieved another call from staff just before I arrived in the afternoon again chasing my payment. Not once since I made the booking had they checked in in regards to the booking, only to chase the money. When I entered the room I was confused as I thought I was booking a serviced apartment. To charge over $300 a night, I was completely disappointed with what we were given. The room was tiny and the only service provided was a jug and a fridge that was completely useless. The place didn’t have a microwave or any kind of cooking facilities. The toilet seat was broken, the shower screen was broken, the shower head hardly sprayed water and this wasn’t able to be changed. The TV wouldn’t tune channels properly and it was generally uncomfortable. The linen was itchy and the 3 of us struggled to sleep the 2 nights that we stayed there. The pool had a sign on it to say it wasn’t in order at the moment so we couldn’t even use and access that.
