Great location and views”

Unit 4 (or 304) - 2 bedroom unit. Pros. Location and views are to die for. We got this at a great rate so value for money was fantastic for us but their normal rates are on the pricey side. Can walk into town easily and the car park space was right out front. Cons: can hear Stair noise from neighbouring apartments and the walls aren't that thick or soundproof. Traffic in QT can get backed up coming down from the Remarkables and this is on the other side of town. No big issue but be prepared for a longer travel home from the slopes. No basics kept in kitchen pantry eg . sauce and oil/spray oil. Housekeeping could be hit and miss, forgot to top up our dishwasher powder and coffee one morning but topped up everything else. No warm mud room so be prepared to improvise to dry out gear after a day on the slopes. None of our cons were horrible or a reason not to stay but just letting people know for expectations. We found the lodges great value and perfect for our needs.

We booked early and had a non refundable booking Arrived at reception which was closed and informed by note on door that need to go down road. Met at reception and told they didn’t have record of payment and they had just taken over running the place. Informed we would be staying in Riverfront apartments which were old.

Beware!”

The present operators of this complex are not maintaining the property, nor cleaning units to an acceptable standard. There was sewerage water flowing down the access steps to the stormwater drain on the street. The manager's assurances that this was being addressed were not credible as the QLDC advised when I reported the problem that my complaint was the first they had heard of the issue. Be warned!

The view was magnificent and it was close to everything (within walking distance)

The Lodges were very comfortable and clean. Cleaners made the beds and cleaned every day. We were so close to everything that we left the hire car at the unit more than we drove it. The rooms were big enough for us and our 4 adult children (18-24 years of age). The unit was fairly well equipped, but it could have had a better can opener and more containers for salads, chips and dips etc. As you can see we had little to complain about. It was fantastic.
