                    The only thing I didn't like was having to pay $15/day per car for parking.

                    Location, location, location

                    Room's lack of soundproofing (wall's too thin maybe). Received a complaint from next door's occupant via receptionist.

                  • Family with children
                    8.2

                    The room was spacious, clean and exactly what we thought we were getting.

                    There was an ongoing issue about the room rate which eventually was resolved but it was extremely annoying and a hassle.

                  • Family with children
                    7.4

                    location close to all city attractions and shops

                    second bedroom was only single bed although is called two bebroom apt.

                    9.2

                    Proximity to airport, shopping, eating and direct route to where I need to get to. Check in and check out was quick and easy.

                  • Family with children
                    6.2

                    Definitely has the wow factor as very Swanky furnishings & nice 3 bed apartment floor plan with a very cbd location. Definitely lives up to its name there. Walk 3 blocks or so & your either at the Main Mall or the Fabulous Produce Markets. We really loved that there was two bathrooms so that our family of 4 plus the in laws could all be close but have privacy. Movies & some fox included in price & Cleanliness of whole hotel excellent

                    Bedroom blinds could not be altered so I required a blind fold to sleep in. The kitchen is beautiful even if the dish washer did not funct.. It was however minus a couple of we thought essential items for large family wanting to self cater a little. We thought it could have done with a large saucepan (pasta pot) as the biggest was more medium in size. Also a chopping board pretty obvious as all sharp knives were blunt that people were having to chop on the granite surface. Felt that the second doulble bed & the 3rd single should have been switched as kids had it better than us in the wardrobe department as the boiler was in one of the two allowed where the kids had 5 doors of space & no noise from pipes etc.Forwarded all issues to F. Desk so hopefully the next family will benefit.

                    Room was ready and we were able to check in early. Very quiet location and no noise from other rooms even with a full hotel. Easy walking distance to CBD. Excellent cooked breakfast available at attached cafe and good value. Rooms clean and beds comfortable.

                    Terrific location as it was close to excellent restaurants on Gouger St. and Frome Road and the Botanical gardens. It was also very close to the markets and the tram. 3 bedroom apartment was extremely clean, large, spacious and comfortable - particularly with 2 bathrooms as there were six of us sharing the space. The staff were over the top helpful and friendly in terms of giving directions and responding to our needs.

                    Location was good - nice and central and good for the local market.

                    Would have benefited from better ventilation

                    The size of the apartment was good - it meant that we had plenty of spce to relax.

                    The air conditioning only really affected the living area. The bedrooms became quite warm.

                    The freedom to come and go as I pleased. The airport shuttle bus.

                    Would have liked sugar substitute, as well as sugar, in the drinks box. Would have liked more breakfast choice in cafe.

                    Lack of air conditioning and windows / ventilation in bedrooms
