    The location is incredible, the size of the place and ease of access make for an amazing stay. Perfect location for for tourists and great for local amenities. I would definitely be booking here again.

    The duvet on the bed could've done with being bigger-to be the correct size for the bed. Plus the pillows were rock solid- not good for a good night's sleep. Nothing major but one of the window bars needs fixing and a lick of paint would work wonders near where plaster is coming off.

    The location was excellent.

    The sofa bed in the lounge room was not able to be sat on to watch tv. There was mould on the bathroom ceilings.

    Loved how central the property was. Easy to find, thorough and clear instructions for check-in provided, a clean apartment, nice and fairly modern. Would definitely stay again!

    A later check-out option would have been ideal.
