We had a suite on the 6th floor. Like any other accommodation, very nice reception area, very nice presentation all round.

That's where the similarities end.......our room was on the 6th floor and was absolutely sensational. After the standard male jostling for rooms, we found ourselves in can what only be described as ample. 3 bedroom ensuite, lounge, dining, kitchen......very modern. But the selling point for me was the balcony off each room and another off the main living area. Needless to say, we enjoyed not only the great company, but the picturesque views of both the ocean and the river. Would definitely stay here again.

The only down point (if any) was one of the house rules was no parties on the balconies after 10pm. I can live with that.

Would recommend for families or a group of non rowdy couples. Everything is in walking distance, food, drink and kiddie stuff.

Location Location is what we are, We here at Sevan are very glad you enjoy your stay, Not only with just the great area of Forster but enjoying the all parts of the apartment, especially the balconies, gives you even more space and is great to relax in the fresh air and take in the amazing views. Yes we have a house rule of No Parties on Balcony past 10pm. But no problem just relaxing out there after 10pm, This rule is to keep it fair for other guest.
Hope to see you in the future.

We did a last minute booking through Wotif at the Sevan Apartments in Forster for 2 nights.

We booked a One Bedroom Ocean View Apartment. The room was very clean and tidy.

Upon arrival, we found that our view was about one eighth of the Ocean and the rest was a dirty back alley and was very disappointed but I let it slide as we could still see a bit.

We walked through the rest of the apartment to find that it was actually a 3 bedroom apartment but 2 of the 3 bedrooms were locked. Our bedroom but small but nice enough, then we walked into the ensuite...

When we walked into the ensuite, I found faecal matter in the toilet!!!

I called reception and told them firstly that I had paid extra for an Ocean View Apartment and about 1/8 of the view was actually Ocean and I was told "That is actually an Ocean View room" and when I asked "So if this is an Ocean View, what do all of the apartments at the front of the hotel see??" she replied "This is not our problem. You will have to contact Wotif directly and deal with them if you want a refund" and after another few minutes of asking questions she still somehow convinced herself that it was not actually the hotels problem because we didnt book directly through them!!

After that, I got onto the ensuite issue and when I told her I expected more then silence. She was silent. I told her I wanted something done about it and I'm not paying the full amount and she was still silent. When I asked "So what are you going to do about it?" she replied "I dont know, we have never had this problem before", not even an apology. She told me she would discuss the issue with her manager and call back. She didnt. When I called back 2 or 3 hours later, the best they could come up with was "On behalf of management and myself, as an apology we would like to offer you late checkout. 2pm" *Excuse me while I pick my jaw up off the floor* LATE CHECKOUT!?!?

I was far too shocked and angry to argue and figured I would be worse off doing so (and my husband was giving me the "Shhhh, dont yell at them. Thats so embarrassing" face so I accepted it and we left as soon we woke the next morning.

I have never experienced anything like that in my entire life nor have I ever experienced such unhelpful staff. Zero stars for everything from me.

We sincerely apologise and empathise with your disappointment. We have taken your comments on board and made some changes.
We always aim to please our guests and strive to uphold high standards in cleanliness. Our team at Sevan have worked here for a number of years, they are enthusiastic and take pride in presentation and cleanliness. They, like ourselves are disappointed and cannot understand how this was overlooked,
We offer our apartments as a 1 bedroom to provide a less expensive option for a single person or a couple. The master bedroom with a walk in robe and ensuite is quite spacious. The lounge, dining kitchen area is also spacious and opens onto a large wrap around deck area. There is also a laundry.
We endeavour to help our guests make an informed decision by providing a photo of the actual view from each apartment on our web site. We always encourage the use of this as it is disappointing for all concerned when we our guests booking expectations are not meet.
Our front office staff are polite, happy and obliging and feel the conversation was not quiet as outlined when the problems were reported the next morning. The office staff did feel shocked, embarrassed and a little stuck for words. We have implemented new policies to help us all through a difficult situation.
When reservations are made through a web site such as Wotif, any changes do need to be made through that web site.

The apartment was spacious and clean, we had friends in to have a cold beer on the balcony over looking the sea, then a short walk to the restaurants. The next morning it was easy cooking breakfast in the large kitchen and relaxing in the living room. Car was secure in the underground parking. Beach was a short walk.

Room Tip: Level Nine has great views

Thank you for taking the to time write us a review.
We are all glad you enjoyed your stay here and that you enjoyed the best parts of being in an apartment, getting to have cold beers with friends with an amazing view,
then to beable to cook your own breakfast is a plus, travelling and eating out can get a bit much. Also not worrying about the car also helps you to relax and just to enjoy.
Thank you again.

Stayed here for business in a 3Br apartment. Simple and quick check in with friendly staff. Modern and clean apartment with fully equipped kitchen. Appliances were all clean and working. Rooms were well sized with large balcony area. The beach and city centre are within 200m. The pool heating was fine and the BBQ area excellent. Given the size of the balcony a small BBQ for each apartment would be good.
