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.
