Excellent Location, Excellent Apartment

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was good, location excellent and suited our purpose very well. Little points for improvement to comment on. Check in had to be organised at a specific time - given that we are local and were not coming from the airport direct to the apartment we could have used more flexibility. Ben who checked us in was very courteous and pleasant. The apartment carpet was not vacuumed. This I think should be compulsory prior to a new guest occupying the apartment. The 2 single beds in the 2nd room are so very narrow that an adult can't turn in bed without the fear of falling off the bed. The only reason that I rate the property average for cleanliness and comfort is because of the points of improvement that I have mention earlier. If these are fixed this will be an excellent property overall.

Perfect Accommodation!!

  • 5 of 5

Hi there, we stayed here in June for the Origin. Having never been to Melbourne I was very surprised at the location on our arrival as it was one of the cheapest city type places we could find yet seemed to be in the best location only a few hundred metres from the Crown and not even 1km to the free city trams. On the 24th Floor there were stunning views of the river, city etc however being next to a freeway was also extremely quiet with double glass and the blinds were good in the rooms so you could sleep the day away if you wanted!! The washer dryer was excellent and very handy! It was very spacious compared to what I expected! The internet was absolutely excellent! Foxtel was great! Bathrooms and water pressure were awesome!! The indoor heated pool and spa were fantastic, tennis court, bbq area, gym etc. Was a very secure building. Were greeted with an early check in perfectly on time. Kitchen was well stocked with cooking utensils and pots and pans etc. The little touches of kids books and pens and paper etc really made those homely touches. The only bad thing I could say is we requested a later check out and was told it would be confirmed on arrival and by departure day still hadn't heard anything and when I phoned the Apartments on the Sat and Sun it said they were open 9-12 but when I rang the mobile 2 hours before leaving they said they aren't open weekends then texted me back to tell me the late check out could not be done. Would have been nice to know either way and receive a phone call explaining rather than a text. Property itself though is absolutely perfect and we will be back for sure!!!!!!!!!

We stayed at this apartment for 2 nights in March 2010. All we can say is perfect. The apratment is everything and more. Location is bang on Southbank/Crown/South Wharf. The views are to die for. Carparking was also a breeze. Thanks again Kellie we will be back one day soon.
