You were all a pleasure to have, and you won 'GOLD' in the Masters, congratulations. The BBQ area on the river is great to catch up after a long day or just to chill and maybe do a spot of fishing on our private jetty. Thank you for your lovely comments on my staff

Thankyou for your lovely review, George, the Manager, is very experienced in his role and always looks after the guests and their needs with a smile. The view is great, especially the river views, sometimes even seeing dolphins swimming up the river. The Executive Apartments have been refurbished and are large and very comfortable. As we are very central, we...

The first thing to remember is that this is not a hotel, it is a serviced apartment, so don't expect room service, daily housekeeping or anything like that. Having said that, I stayed in the three bedroom apartment which was large and well fitted out, it could easily sleep six, a few more if they don't mind sleeping on the...

We found Waterways through bookings.com - and chose it mainly on the basis of the photos of the executive 2 bedroom apartment, and the price (a little over $200/night for 4 of us). Stayed for 14 nights, could happily have stayed longer (yes, we could live there !) and it was perfect for us. Even before we arrived, we were...

Thank you for the lovely review, we always try to help, where possible, our guests to totally enjoy their stay. Our apartments have great balconies with views of the city and the river, sometimes you can see dolphins swimming up the river, and large enough to accommodate families, also helps that they are fully self contained.
