I always prefer to stay in CBD to be close to main attraction. However, in peak seasons, fully equipped apartments rates are a bit high in the city, I saved about %20 booking this one. I knew that I needed to walk 15 min to green square station everyday back and fourth. I knew that I won't find major supermarket outlet except for few asian shops that offers few option for non asians items. Therefore, i wasn't surprised about these major two issues. Beside, a new mall containing Coles is opening soon which is very close to this apartment. I would assume also a bus stop will be added to this mall soon.
Rooms are clean, modern, and fairly new. Full keithnet that we used to cook from time to time. View is ok, it can be noisy at night sometimes but its not an issue. Staff are a bit slow but friendly and helpful.
If you are planning to stay here, plan for transportation and grocery shopping. Taxi to CBD can cost around AUD20-25. Train can cost from AUD7 return tickets. So, if you have more than 3 people, taxi is a better option. Bus is terrible, I don't recommend it unless you want to.
It is a great option as long as it keeps a competitive price to city cbd options.
I would advise this accommodation management to offer a free/cheap mini bus shuttle to train station or cbd. I also advise them to add flyers about online shoppings coles/woolies in rooms to counter these two issues for the time being.

Room Tip: Rooms that opens to the gardens are much better. The street view is a bit noisy sometimes for garbag...

Very modern, very new, very clean. Location will be great when the shops open next door. Still a little bit out of the CBD but worthwhile considering that the city overcharge.The Audi café next door is very very good.

Great place! The apartment is clean and well maintained. Upgraded to 1 bedroom from studio. Supermarket is not too far away. Near to CBD (driving). Wifi reception ok. Great choice if you have a vehicle. Value for money!

I booked the property two months earlier and as a result got it at a great price. I am not sure if the prices have increased generally but looking for a weekend stay recently I noticed the prices were disproportionately much higher.

Having said that I felt the facilities were first class. I had a studio room but it could nearly be described as a one bedder. The room was beautifully serviced every day and had all the essentials and some more. Dishwasher, washing machine, dryer, some foxtel channels. internet all went towards making it a great stay.

One or two little restaurants popping up in the area as the development grows.

Very impressed and will stay there again provided the prices do not get out of hand.

this property was very cheap when first on the market, but prices are now getting a bit high for the location in Sydney, but the benefits still outweigh this at the moment. If the prices go up much more it will not be worth using them. Service is very enthusiastic but immature from some staff. they need to put the customer first in everything they do, not what the company wants. Then they will get the recognition from their guests. All apartments have been great and spacious and cleanliness is always good. Recommend this property but for business clients they need to get a reward program going like "MyOaks" that Oaks hotels have that will bring business clients back again and again with lower prices and extra benefits. At the moment Meriton gets about 40% of our company's bookings.

Stayed here from 14th November to 21st November 2013. This hotel is lovely, we where so spoilt here with everything we needed in our one bedroom apartment from a fridge, freezer to a washing machine and tumble dryer. The high speed internet was an added bonus as well giving you 1gb everyday. The staff were really friendly and helpful as well :) pointing out the nearest supermarket, convenience store and the train station which is a comfortable 20 minute walk away, which we did a number of times, as the train into the city is so relaxing and only 20 minutes. Rooms where clean, spacious, bed made everyday, fresh towels and amenities replaced. Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone, convenient location to the airport also. Max $30 in a taxi.

Love the room! Driving distance to the airport, comfortable stay, and high-speed internet access. Especially, we love the swimming pool and spa area:) However, it is not very convinent for guests who do not have a car.
