Absolutely stupid checkin times. 710 PM and $49 late checkin fee. Rubbish, $250 bond, rubbish, we own a motel and certainly don't do this. Text messages telling me to arrive earlier, and then on leaving text message asking if any damage was done, are you kidding. They do this because they don't man checkin. At checkin Lachlan James had to deal with me telling him what I thought of this stupidity, pointing out to him that the 1 out of 5 in reviews that I read all refer to this late checkin fee. I tried to change my booking after getting the stupid text telling me to get there earlier. I wasted 90 minutes checking alternative accommodation and trying to change. Wotif told me that they would get back to me in 48 hours when I was checking in the next day, what an absurd timeline. When wotif contact us we reply immediately! Lachlan was absolutely fantastic AND professional, when I got to the room there was a couple of cleaning and maintenance issues which I passed on. For what I was paying and location (yes near railway line but I wanted close to train station and yes to all the idiots posting negative comments about the trains, trains do run from train stations) it is excellent value. All these people posting 1 out of 5 on basis of this late arrival charge miss the point on what a score is, a few issues do not warrant a score of 1 out of 5. This is problem of the internet and bitter people. Thanks Lachlan

Disappointing accommodation
Could not recommend. - After receiving text message advising apartment was ready for us disappointed to find that it appeared not to have been cleaned at all. Linen bag containing dirty sheets left in living area. Windows left uncleaned as covered in hand and smear marks. Food crumbs and lint over carpeted areas in living space and bedrooms. No clean towels at all - not sure what we were to use? Discovered that previous occupiers towels had been left wet (possibly after washing) sitting in the dryer. After challenging management with these issues it was cleaned and manager advised that clean towels had been supplied. Suspect that the wet towels left sitting in the dryer(on a hot day) were dried, as we later discovered, they smelled pretty dreadful. We didn't have the willpower to remedy this issue as we had wasted so much time and energy after arriving from interstate. Reasons given for such poor condition was that new cleaning contractors had only started the previous day and so were still learning! Also discovered that there were some maintenance issues in the apartment but these may have have not been reported to management so they may not have been aware. Still, one would think that conditions of fixtures would have been checked on a reasonably regular basis. But what can you do when payment was made at time of booking, and you then have the hassle of trying to find other suitable accommodation in an unfamiliar city. Not a happy experience.

Great location for everything. Would have been nicer to drop bags earlier than check in time, but apparently not available. What tainted our stay was the following: 1. Given our room only to find the cleaner was still cleaning our room. We were told she would be 5-10 minutes but ended up being 40 minutes stuck in a small, smelly corridor with grumpy teenagers. 2. Went to utilise the wifi and found it wasn't working. Was told somebody would be up in a few minutes, one hour later the person had not arrived. We decided to go out and was advised they would go up while we were out... on our return we were disappointed to find nobody had been to fix. Within 15 minutes the gentleman came to "fix" the wifi but after over an hour with no success he said he had to check in people and would be back and we didn't see anyone again...! Very disappointed. 3. Boiled the kettle in the evening and thought our coffee tasted funny... turns out there were 4 teabags in the kettle which then made us question what else wasn't cleaned... Overall the above tainted the whole stay.

Beautiful view
Checkin was easy, although would of liked somewhere safer to store luggage, maybe with numbered tags for collection. Staff were pleasant, We were lucky to have a beautiful view overlooking the Yarra towards Casino , although trains were noisy below us ,didn't really notice unless out on deck . Found that only being able to have 2 friends at a time in our room a bit annoying and we are mature adults, not party people, just being, able to show them our room and view would of been beneficial to future bookings. We only showed 2 of our group of 8. There was plenty of coffee/tea etc, kitchen essentials and bathroom facilities. As we were staying for 3 nights we didn't have enough towels tho. Would of appreciated bright light over sink. Rooms smelt a little on entering, like dampish, not sure what the go was there. I have personally done housekeeping and would like to suggest a thorough spring clean once a month as there was lots of dust etc between washing machine/ dryer in bathroom. Room was generally comfy , nice dining suite and comfy couch.TV. Getting around from the apartments was very easy, circle tram and others pretty much outside apartment, a short walk to Casino and South Bank , South Wharf, DFO. We walked down from Skybus depot about 5-10 minute walk. We had a lovely pizza from Eat Pizza and also enjoyed Nandos, both right near apartment. We would love to recommend The Melbourne Star, a Yarra river cruise,Melbourne Arts Centre, and enjoyed White Night in the city.

Great place to stay...just fabulous! Sitting in the apartment overlooking the river, by day very busy with helicopters, boats, trams and people, by night lights, fire shows hourly, more people. Can spend loads of time just sitting, watching. Apartment is my exercise walking to and from the bathroom! Everything was in great working order, good internet, tv, bed, fridge, microwave, washing machine & dryer Close to tram, buses, shops, market, Melbourne Convention Centre, Southbank, AFL, supermarkets, restaurants (it is Melbourne!).
