“Character abounds!”
Reviewed 19 September 2012

I was a little skeptical to begin with, having previously been fooled by someone taking their creative license a little too far with when describing a boutique hotel.
I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised by Apartments Down Town.
Our apartment was convivial, spacious and filled with delightful period furnishings and collectibles.
The girl at reception was polite and had great local knowledge; she personally showed us to our apartment and recommended a place for dinner.
This place has a lot of character, utterly charming

Room Tip: Be sure to ask for a spa room!

Reviewed 30 August 2011

Very tired decor with tenuous links to art deco which ended up giving the impression it hadnt been redecorated since the 30's.

2nd bedroom heater did not work so our 16 mth daughter slept in our bedroom. Annoying as the booking system would not allow us a single room apt with our daughter (although lesser accomodation venues will do this with no issue) - its a money thing i guess?
Loose floorboards meant wardrode doors rattled noisily at the slightest step.

Very cold and draughty throughout. Kitchen and bathroom clumsily appointed, cold and unwelcoming.

Cleanliness left a little to be desired. Could do with a carpet clean.

For the price we considered this a total dump and for half the cost stayed in a cheap motel in Cooee which beat this place hands down.

We are exceptionally well travelled across a wide range of cost anf expectation models and dont comment lightly, this place is one to avoid.
