Thank you for your fabulous review

5 out of 5
We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment and loved the space and high ceilings in the lounge. Although we weren't there long there was ample storage in the kitchen which would make longer stays with a family far easier.

A pamper weekend away

Pros: Very comfortable, all we needed, close to everything, easy to find, easy access
Location: Great location, close to shops, waterways, beach, Lost Spring, cafes
From the last minute booking, to the very late check in Sonia was really helpful and made our weekend away very enjoyable. The apartment was very comfortable with a fantastic view out over the waterways and a snuggly gas fire to keep the winter chills at bay. The lock up garage was an extra bonus as we had taken our bikes along and had somewhere to stash all of our muddy gear. This complex is very handy to The Lost Spring spa so our pamper weekend could not have been better.
