I spent one night here for a business trip and found the Dockside Apartments to be okay in most respects. First up, this is not really a hotel. The front desk is open for extended business hours only and few of the typical hotel-style services are available. It is a short-stay apartment building.
I stayed in an Executive Room on level 13. Mostly, it was pretty good with furniture and fittings being new and reasonable quality. The view of the river was very nice. The kitchen is okay for preparing simple meals.
The bedroom was good and sleep quality was excellent.
The aircon appeared to be not working but the outside temperature was really nice so I just opened the windows. The bathroom was very clean but quality of the fittings was poor. Everything is the bathroom is straight out of the 1980s - clean but they have opted for the cheapest of the cheap. Water pressure was barely adequate. Overall, the bathroom is just plain depressing. The washing machine worked fine.
Guest parking is available at a building about 300m away. There is a small grocery store across the street from the apartments.
Is this place okay? Yeah. Is it luxurious? No way. Would I stay here again? Not unless my work was close by and I was staying for more than 4 days. For a short stay, a hotel is probably a better option.
