My wife and I stayed for three nights. We are both in our late sixties. The apartment was well appointed and is not the focus of our complaint. The focus lies with the treatment we received from the owner Peter Locke. My wife booked the apartment directly with the owner at an agreed price. We were unable to pay for the accommodation on arrival because his eftpos machine was off-line. We agreed to leave our card details with him and he would process the payment at a later date.We left not seeing the owner again. There was no question of being charged an extra amount because of any damage or untidiness. We arrived home and checked our bank statement and found that we had been over charged by $195. I contacted the owner, thinking that there had been an honest mistake. But no! The owner refused to refund the $195. What followed was a torturous path of emails which could only illicit a list of pathetic and somewhat irrational responses from the owner. Seeing that I was not getting anywhere we decided we would apply to the Office of Fair Trading for a resolution. The owner decided to ignore the OFT approach. We had no choice but to approach the Fraud department at our bank. This proved to be fruitful. The $195 was refunded. A good result but it took over 5 months to claw back what was our money. This was due to the owner's unwillingness to accept the fairness of our claim. He showed to be irrational and extremely greedy in his actions.
Be careful when dealing with this owner.
We stay at The Gallery for 3 nights.
Location is great, couple of blocks from shops and restaurant/cafes; yet it is residential area and no problem with traffic noise all day.
As its name stated, there are plenty of paintings display in the apartment.
It had load of space in the living room and kitchen & dinning area. Everything you need for a comfortable stay in all seasons are there, just felt like home.
Both bedrooms and their ensuite bathrooms are very spacious. Beds are great and provide us few good nights of sleep.
Peter is very friendly and gave a brief about the apartment when we arrive, and gave us all the privacy to enjoy our stay.
This place fit the luxury heading and we enjoy our stay very much.
