“Great Stay”
Reviewed 22 March 2014

A younger sibling was in hospital for a kidney transplant in late last year/early this year. The hospital staff had recommended this accommodation to me. We stayed there for 2months and during that time we were looked after very well, We even had mail sent to us from family and friends from home. For anyone that doesn't have family or friends and don't have a great deal of money, I would recommend this place. We enjoyed our stay very much.( we stayed in the rear block.). Everything was located within walking distance. The apartment that I shared with my sibling was very comfortable. It served and suited our purposes and needs very well.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the apartments are quieter and easy access to the shopping centre up the stree...

This place is absolutely disgusting. My sick mother who had just gone through a kidney transplant was offered to stay here through government subsidy which we thought oh hell yeah! So we came to visit her and was horrified. The place smelt like they were trying to cover up the smell of death, it is as old as a dinosaur and hasn't been updating since Elvis was born. It is of such poor quality that jail would have been a better choice! The place is a horrible colour smell and feel. Exposed brick, felt like the elevator was going to break, car park was like a pedo basement, rooms tiny as, everything so so old it was just uncomfortable, depressing and horrible. Then when I had to move my mother to the pa apartments across the road which are lovely by the way, the owner was an absolute cock and was in no way being customer orientated, just disappointed that the money was no longer going into his greasy hands.
Hope the place burns to the ground. Just awful. Please don't ever burden yourself to stay there.

I stayed at the apartments (rear block) for 4 days, and I was surprised when I opened the door. After reading the reviews on here, I was hesitant of what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised. The Room was clean, and crisp. white sheets, that smelt fresh, the kitchen was clean and fresh. When turning on the aircon, I thought it would be stinky, but it was fresh. It had a spacious clean bathroom, with washing machine and dryer. Efficient clothes storage, with spare pillows and blankets, which were also clean and fresh. There are many lights to choose from so you can set your own mood, and a table to eat at or to use the computer. there is a lounge, and tv which had all your free to air channels, plus 6 fox channels. The apartments are private, and quiet. It is off Ipswich road, and during the day you can hear the cars and trucks, and at night, the ambulences, but it is right across the road from the Princess Alexandra Hospital, so you would expect a certain level of noise. if inside, with the tv on and aircon, it soon blocks out. The best part about these apartments, is that its so close to the shops, including woolworths, burunda shopping village, cafes, newsagents, bakery, and lucky7. The Bus stop is right out the front of the PA hospital, and the buses come so often, it is extremely easy to get too and from the city. I rate this 5/5 and if had to stay down here again for health treatment, this is the place to be.

Room Tip: go to the back blocks, so ive heard, and I chose one, and it is really nice

My wife and I have recently returned from a 6 week stay at the Apartments (rear block) as I was having treatment at the PA hospital. We found the apartments to be clean, modern and well positioned to the Hospital across the road, shopping centre with places to dine.
The city is close by with a bus stop out the front and they have off street parking.The staff are friendly and happy to help you if needed.

Room Tip: Rear block would be quieter than front

I'm surprised by some of the previous reviews, because my experience couldn't have been better. Dennis bent over backwards to help me get accommodation on short notice. The unit was fully self contained, clean and tidy, and extremely handy to the hospital. Excellent value for money, considering I was charged $200 per night at an apartment near by. They even let me leave my car there after I had checked out, so I could visit my husband in the hospital. Would gladly stay here again. Many thanks

I ran to confirm room configuration and was asked the purpose of my visit. When I said that I was visiting for a sporting event I was told the room was no longer available. Even though the room had been previously confirmed room and taken credit card details. Unbelievably rude and unprofessional

After reading some of the reviews looks like i dodged a bullet... Makes Fawlty Towers look impressive. STAY AWAY.

Room Tip: Stay Elsewhere

Hospital booked my room, my husband planned to hang around and have dinner with me, but after seeing the standard of the room, he decided he would rather sit in peak hour traffic and headed back to the Gold Coast. He informed family that I was staying in 2 star accommodation and he hasn't seen accomodation that bad in Asia. I had 3 single beds in the room, one of which was pushed up against a small square dining table. The hallway inside the apartment looked like the outside of an old apartment block, no bed head, to watch tv or read you had to rest your head against a concrete wall, not even a bedside lamp, the tiled wall in the bathroom, was cracked from the door way round to the shower. The lift area is appalling, It is the oldest looking place I have ever stayed in, apartments at the back are not as old, but the front needs to be demolished.
