We reserved a family room and upon arrival were upgraded to a suite in the adjoining Abbey Apartments(?). The flat included a kitchen which appeared to have been updated recently. It was stocked with a hot pot, teas and coffees, and dishes to accommodate 4 guests. Also included were a stove, dishwasher and refrigerator. The living room included a futon, small table, 2 chairs, and a TV; the bedroom was furnished with a comfortable double bed and a chifferobe. The en suite bathroom was clean and very brightly lit but it would have been beneficial to install some shelves where we could place our toiletries. There was only one hook nearest the shower to hold your towel and whatever clothing you didn't want to stack upon the toilet.
The laminate flooring in all of the remaining rooms was a bit warped and should be replaced, in my opinion, because it felt cheap, compared to the very nice tile flooring in the kitchen.
The futon had a broken leg but maintenance staff promptly arrived and repaired it.
The location is just a couple of blocks from the Paddington Station. The neighborhood is beautiful and generally quiet all things considered (our flat was at street level) but using a pair of ear plugs at night was a good idea.
The wifi is free for about 30 minutes, per device. Thus, I was able to review emails on my iPhone until my time expired and then I was able to do the same with my iPad. There is free wifi at the Paddington Station if you don't mind walking the 2 blocks for that benefit.
There is a large variety of restaurants in the neighborhood and we visited Mimo's Cafe in the mornings for delicious coffee and fresh pastries. Dinner was in the adjoining Brazilian restaurant, Desejo Do Brazil, which was good fare but expensive.
