We booked a one bedroom studio which had enough room to sleep four people. There was a queen sized bed in an alcove room and then a separate room with 2 single beds. In addition the studio had a spacious lounge area with TV, a kitchenette and a good sized bathroom.
The kitchenette is well equipped although it took a while to locate the stove top cooking facilities - a plug in 2 element affair kept in a drawer whereas I was looking for a bench top stove. The microwave was a convection/ microwave. I have always found these a bit daunting to use but there is an instruction book available for the technologically challenged!
The heating was good and it was nice to have an outdoor area to look out on to from the lounge room.
Elphin Villas are very conveniently located, only a 5 minute walk to the K Mart Plaza, close to the city centre, and not far from St Luke's hospital.
The reception staff were very helpful when we phoned to make our booking and were very understanding when we had to cut our planned 5 day stay short to 3 days, and did not charge us. Much appreciated.
Our room was right towards the downhill end of the Villas close to Racecourse Rd so a little noisy at times from traffic. As a hint, when booking request a room closer to the reception end, the uphill part, as I think this would be more secluded and quieter.
