Quite a nice place to stay with friendly staff and quite a good location. Can be quite noisy with sounds travelling into rooms from stairwells and car pars as well as the nearby train line. Great location with an easy walk to the Jetty area for restaurants and bars. Bathrooms are tired and a bit musty. Nice views from studio...

This is our second visit here. It is so conveniently located to the jetty harbour and the gorgeous restaurant strip. The units are faultless in their cleanliness and amenities. The staff are always friendly and helpful. A great place for a couple escape or a family getaway.

We stayed in a 3 br apartment, bedrooms on one level, living quarters upstairs. The open kitchen/dining/lounge with balcony was spacious and comfortable. Main criticism is that the pipes were so noisy on the bedroom level that if anyone flushed the toilet or turned on taps it seemed to echo loudly in the walls.

Great location, beautiful view and the staff were really wonderful. Daniel and Emily were always happy to help with anything we needed, nothing was too much trouble! We had an incident with our young son injuring himself and they were so helpful, kind and very thoughtful. Wonderful place to stay with a family, we walked to the beach each morning...

My partner and I enjoyed the Easter weekend at the Observatory Holiday Apartments. Centrally located adjacent to the railway station, around the corner from "the strip" restaurants, walking distance to the jetty, and with beautiful water views. We had a studio apartment, which provided a comfortable king size bed, lounge, kitchenette, spacious bathroom with spa bath, and a comfortable balcony...

We stayed back in January on the way back from our Christmas holidays. From the moment I had emailed Daniel regarding our accommodation he was just lovely and couldn't be more accommodating.
