We were sharing a two bedroom, two bathroom apartment with my sister and b-in-law. They arrived the day before we did and found both bedrooms had a king bed - rather than one with twin beds, as requested. They kindly gave us the larger bedroom but I felt a bit mean, because their room and bathroom were very small and ours was a suite with walk-in robe and huge bathroom. We were unable to split the king bed, however (no linen for singles) so I had to contend with my partner's loud snores in my ear! I guess this is an example of the kinds of issues that may arise when there is no on-site office for the complex. Arrangements to collect keys had to be made beforehand and my sister failed to tell management that we wanted twin beds!
The rest of the apartment was very nicely presented and spacious but it faced west and was extremely hot in the afternoons. There was aircon in the living area, but not in the bedrooms. Leaving the windows open was not really an option at night due to noise from nightclubs and restaurants in the area. We had a couple of uncomfortable nights in bed.
Our apartment on the fifth floor had a view of the Maritime Museum and other attractions along Viaduct Harbour. Having so many restaurant to choose from was great. We were also a short walk to the ferry terminal, and shopping in Queen Street, etc. A really good position in the city - apart from facing west!
I think the cost of the apartment was a bit over the top, but my sister was keen to stay there. Personally I prefer having management/staff on call to iron out any difficulties, so might not stay in the complex again.
