These apartments are in a excellent location close to restaurants and transport and Harbour Town. They are spacious and clean. There is a supermarket and bottleshop close by and walking distant to Etihad Stadium.

Howdy, I was about to write a review from my stay last week - when I came across Tegan_777 comments. Don't take this the wrong way Tegan, but I was wondering if you have reviewed the correct establishment? I only ask as I have stayed with these guys many times, and it's due to their great service and rooms that I keep returning when I'm in Melbourne? As far as advertised images - I have yet to see an establishment show images of every room they have - and tend to display a generic range??? If I've had any issues in the past, I ask to have them addressed, and if the situation cannot be addressed (as sometimes things happen that out of anyone's control) I request if it's possible for another room - but I ask this of every hotel/serviced apartment establishment I use. In this case they are serviced apartments - not hotels. I should imagine there are times that the cleaning staff (or whoever) forget to report an issue or something gets overlooked - while not desirable - we are all humans after all and we have to deal with the human error factor. (I know I don't make an issue when any of my staff makes the odd oops). I'm also wondering if this review was written by a competitor - just seems a little "hinky". Especially with comments such as "bed was next level uncomfortable". I do think this is somewhat dramatic and over the top. I pretty much read all the reviews and none mention this. If they were that bad surely previous guests would have mentioned. I'm also assuming you're an architect/designer/builder with comments like "The apartment building itself is oddly designed, somewhat reminiscent of a prison with concrete design and bright green doors, and a mixture of residential apartments and offices" - or maybe you've been in prison to be able to qualify the comparison??? Anyway, your review will not deter me. I now look forward to my next visit. Lyn & Peter are just the best. Cheers

We had a pleasant stay here. These little details is not a big deal. What is important is that the apartment itself is well maintained and the location is perfect.
