    We are regular visitors to the GC and have stayed at the Contessa for several of our trips now. It is always spotlessly clean, the apartments are wonderfully appointed and the proximity to everything is wonderful. One opportunity for improvement - decent and affordable wifi!!!

    Five adults stayed for 14 nights. Very disappointed to be allocated a 3rd bedroom that had 4 bunk beds & no wardrobe. We had stayed there before & requested the 3rd bedroom to be appropriate for an adult & to have a robe. Very disappointed.More

    Hi, I was just wondering if you provide a cot for younger children? We are travelling interstate so won't be bringing one with us - if so do we need to let staff know before arrival or is there one in the apartment already? Thanks!

    Hello Sam, yes we have both a porta cot and a wooden cot available for hire for $40 per week . Also a high chair and a stroller. Please advise your requirements when booking so we can reserve them for you. Jan & David
