We booked last minute for a few nights over Christmas. Understandably, rooms were limited so we were specific with our bedding requirements upon booking over the phone. After travelling the entire day from Alice Springs to Ballina via Sydney and Brisbane, we were disappointed to find we were short a bed resulting one of us spending Christmas eve sleeping on...

My overnight stay began with me waiting close to half an hour to check in, as the manager was the only person who could do that and he was MIA. When he did show up, he had what I can only describe as questionable customer service skills - complaining about other customers, not being able to work the equipment to...

Our family stayed one night in a 3 bed apartment. The apartment was large, clean and comfortable. Had a large balcony with beautiful view of the river, and was so convenient to all shops and cafes etc. The manager on reception was very helpful and friendly. There is no one on reception out of hours so you do need to...

We arrived after hours and go there at about 7pm and stayed for just 1 night. The after hours check-in process was quite easy to organise and navigate. Our room was actually quite larger than I was expecting, except we didn't get a view with our room, and I'm pretty sure we had a shared balcony. I was too apprehensive,...

We visit here quite often with work but this time it was for a night before we headed up the North Coast. Beautiful place with very friendly staff. So close to all shopping and restaurants. Highly recommend!

I booked a room in these apartments as it came recommended by a friend. I wasn't put off by the lack of any staff on the weekend which I still find odd. I was intrigued by having to retrieve our room key from a safe bolted to the wall next to the entry stairs. Our room was..... Standard. Nothing special....
