Disliked: Staff & service
Location was great, views were pleasing and large space for multiple families. Air con didn't work properly and kept turning off and the apartment was quite dusty. The biggest disappointment came from the customer service when my daughter locked herself in the swimming pool compound and there was no staff around to assist. The swimming compound is a big safety issue and needs to be corrected to prevent any future hazards from occuring. My daughter is only 2.5 years old and the swimming compound locks itself from the inside with no access from the outside -if it wasn't for my daughter being able to understand simple instructions and push a chair then climb on the chair and then pull the handle down she could have been trapped in the swimming pool complex for a long time and not knowing how to swim either. Once we informed the staff of what had occurred we were simply told " there are keys at the counter which can open the swimming complex" but there was no staff around to assist us anyway.

Wonderful apartment in a great spot.
Lovely apartment. Clean, very roomy, and comfortable. Overlooking river. Childrens playground across the road. Beach 5 minute drive. Complimentary toiletries could be upgraded to include shower gel/body wash, conditioner and body lotion. Will definitely return.

Disliked: Staff & service
Staff completely disinterested and we felt like we were interrupting at all 3 of our interactions. No hot water until morning and due to attitude of owner we didn’t even get a chance to mention it. Maybe just a bad day for them but it really impacted our experience: there’s mindfulness posters everywhere, perhaps the staff could read them instead of snarling at their mobile phone.

We will come back!
The apartment has a great location. Walking distance to restaurants etc..The room view was good too. Enjoyed our chats with Rohan! Thank you for taking care of us during our stay, much appreciated. We judge a place by how we feel upon checkout!! We’re sad to leave the place but carry with us the fond memories. We loved it so much that we extended another night. We would be back Rohan & continue our chats. Patricia & Ray xx

Handy location, secure parking for my self and husband used a visitor carpark. But scaffolding outside the window, commencing at 0645 was a rude awakening. Not the fault the Riverside apartments tho'.

Disliked: Room comfort
Disappointing Stay.
Very disappointed with the room 107. The room had a view over the back lane rusty roof tops and garbage bins, no river in sight. The room was in need of a renovation, old and tired furniture which needs updating In particular the bed and T.V. and the garbage truck woke us early each morning.Although in a good location we could not recommend this property.
