Huge letdown

  • 1 of 5

This property was very disappointing as it was a lot smaller than depicted in the photos. Had no iron so I had to request it and came the following day, so going to dinner was a little embarrassing. There was no hand soap in the bathroom so I had to go and buy some which was annoying. The main issue with the apartment is that it's on the first floor and there was so much foot traffic between 1am-5am (mostly drunk people) so I couldn't sleep). There was building construction going on about 30m up the road which meant I got woken up at 7am. There is no air con and the fact that you can't open the windows due to the noise meant the apartment was stuffy.

We stayed at Anchor on Collins Sapphire on the sixth floor in April 2016. While it could have been a really good experience, the property was let down by a number of small issues involving housekeeping and maintenance. The building is quite new, but does not have double glazing but; if you want to be in the centre area, we accepted

that fact. It was great to use the free town centre trams, just a minutes walk from the apartment...but

The floors had not been vacuumed or cleaned since the last guests, having to deal with long black hairs etc. and particles on the floors and furniture is not acceptable.

The dishwasher had no cutlery basket, and was supplied with dishwasher 'block's' which are not suitable for F & P dishdrawers and did not dissolve.

There were 3 saucepans but only 1 lid, which did not fit any saucepan in the apartment.

It took ages for the bathroom basin to drain.

Worth noting; you will be required to pay a security bond, ours was A$300, you will probably have to remind them to pay it back, assuming there is no reason for it not to be refunded to you.

To sum up, we felt there was a complete lack of pride in their accommodation business.
