Quick easy self contained get away

Only stayed one night, but found the little kitchen and washing machine would come in handy on a longer stay.

Not ideal for families

Very noisy location being on the intersection of two major roads. Second bedroom has door onto balcony that does not lock - not ideal for kids at all. No spare blankets, no heating in bedrooms, couldn't even provide dooner covers - instead had a dooner wrapped in between two sheets. Lots of little minor maintenance jobs that need completing too, but obviously they are too lazy or cheap to get them completed. Would make a difference if they at least cleared the mountain of junkmail that was piled up everywhere in the front pedestrian entrance as well. Certainly not the accommodation their website makes them out to be. Glad we were only staying for one night.

Average

Have just stayed at B in a 2 bedr apt. And would not visit again. One of the bedrooms faced a busy road and was very noisy. Also it had a kitchen, there was no frying pan or cereal bowls. Beds were comfortable but the whole place is lacking a lot of things.

Very helpful and friendly staff,

Very helpful and friendly staff, and apartment well equipped and comfortable to stay in. We had the corner room with windows and balcony overlooking the 8 lane Nepean highway intersection so not the quietest and most attractive of locations, unless you like looking at cars!? Saying that you can obviously drive into town very quickly and it's only a few mins walk from trains and excellent restaurants of North Brighton...

Chose to stay at these apartments

Chose to stay at these apartments as they were situated near to the hospital we needed to go to. They were new so everything was crisp and clean. Our apt was a one bdrm which was fairly small but adequate for two people and well equipped. It was very quiet even though it is near a very busy intersection and highway. Some may be quieter than others though. Would recommend if you were looking to stay in that area.
