Nice stay. Great views.

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 13 Oct 2023via mobile
Nice room, great service with friendly staff. Just a couple of things that didn't work and tv channels were a bit disappointing, compendium said we could connect device to tv to stream Netflix but this was impossible and no instructions on how to achieve this. Searching for a Bluetooth connection provided lots of possibles but no clear identity as to which was our tv. Great car parking. Still a good place to stay.

We had a 2-bedroom suite which was awesome for my son and I with are 7 day stay. We were within walking distance to shopping and tourist attractions and parks. Friendly staff and very accommodating when we arrived in the early morning hours.

Accomodation is in a great location. Plenty of restaurants and bars nearby.
Second time staying, last visit was 5 years ago. This time we stayed with our 2 young children. Advertised as having ‘air-conditioning’ which one would assume was heating. There was nothing like an air-conditioning unit in our 2 bedroom apartment. A small fan heater plugged into the wall was all. Not ideal with small children. Dangerous and also our apartment was freezing - especially being June. Thankfully beds were warm and comfortable and an extra blanket was provided for both bedrooms.
Door to bedroom 2 was locked with a key from the outside. Which meant we had to call reception after one of us shut the bedroom door and couldn’t get back in. Staff attended immediately which was great, they were able to unlock the door however door knob was jammed which meant you could not shut the bedroom door or you would be locked in or out again. Had to place a bag at the door to ensure it wouldn’t be shut.
Otherwise it’s a convenient place to stay. If you care about aesthetics it’s a little dated and bathroom grout is a bit mouldy.

The location could not have been better. Beds were super-comfortable. Showers excellent. Everything was clean. Service was excellent. Strange layout, as others have remarked: wouldn't live there long term but great for a holiday. Nothing that warranted less than a five star rating. We have a view of roofs but w I would definitely stay again.

Fino is a reasonable place to stay and its in a good location. There was nothing outstanding & it could be described as a bit ‘tired’. It’s certainly not luxurious as claimed in some advertising but this is reflected in the price. The lack of an air conditioner was disappointing when our days were 30 plus degrees! Great on-site parking.

Room tip: Restaurant was not to our taste but there are many options within a short walk.

Overall we enjoyed our time here. Two of our party of four thought the furnishings etc were a bit tired looking but the apartment was clean and the beds comfortable. We had a two bedroom apartment and the one thing we did not like was the bathroom arrangement. The fact there was only one bathroom between us was not a problem, we are happy to share. What did cause a bit of an issue was the fact that the bathroom was between the bedrooms with a door into each one. This meant that we all had to remember to lock and unlock both doors before and after taking a shower or using the toilet. I managed to lock my son and daughter-in-law out one night by forgetting to unlock the door to their room. I guess the owners had to work with the building layout they had inherited when they took over but it was an odd arrangement.
Another slightly odd thing was the provision of dishwasher tablets but no dishwasher. At least, our efforts to locate one were without success. I left convinced there was some hidden door I had overlooked! Other than that, the kitchen was well equipped for people who, like us, wish to self cater. We also had laundry facilities which is a boon when touring from place to place. A small supermarket and a shop selling wine were within a short walking distance.
Both receptionists we dealt with were very helpful and welcoming and happy to give directions to various places of interest. The train station was further away than we thought it would be so the advice re booking a taxi and how much time to allow was greatly appreciated. Quake City is within a reasonable walking distance.
