We booked an apartment for 2 nights as a cheap offer came up on wotif.com. The advertised room had a spa bath. Ours did not. We didn't worry about saying anything to reception as when we had checked in they seemed not to care and were very unhelpful with parking (the guest parking was full so they suggested we park the car in a private car park elsewhere- no specific instructions of how to get to one, offer to compensate for higher rates or even an apology for the inconvenience). It ended up costing over $80 to park the car in a Secure car park for 48hours.
The room was also meant to have a river view. Instead, the view was of the rooftop of the next door building. The apartment was nice though. Nothing special, but clean, spacious and had everything we needed.
Pool area was nice but relatively small. We went in the pool but kids started splashing around so we went into the spa. Then a party of 5 joined 2 minutes later so decided it was time to go.
Great location for access to eagle st pier
Overall- don't expect to get the exact description of the room, be prepared to be told to park elsewhere by unhelpful and uninterested reception staff. But hopefully your room will be nice and clean like ours :)
