Rated 2 out of 5 by from Such a disappointment Promising accommodation let down by poor detail, lack of guest information and truly dreadful attitude from the management company. First impressions were good - the accommodation is modern and comfortable and presents well. The bed was comfortable, plenty of linen options, and kitchen was reasonably equipped. It would have been nice to have salt and pepper in the grinders and if you’re going to provide a Nespresso machine then a couple of starter pods would be nice as visitors are unlikely to be travelling with them. Now the downside. The dishwasher didn’t work and had a ‘do not use’ label on it. If a place is advertised as having a facility and it isn’t available then this should be reflected in the rental price. The aircon is shared with a unit next door, we each had separate zone controls but has been installed so that the bedroom of our unit was linked with the zoning for the adjacent unit. This meant that the guests next door controlled our bedroom temperature and as they enjoyed 25 degrees and we like a cool room, this was a big problem. How can anyone not check this on completion of installation – totally lame. No rubbish bins provided in the kitchen and no instruction as to where to put our rubbish. We were kept awake for 2 nights in succession by a loud clanging noise from the roof area. Here’s where lack of customer care really kicked in. First the management company failed to return 2 calls (the usual ‘someone will get back to you’ platitudes). Then when we finally did manage to speak to someone they strongly implied that it wasn’t an issue because the cleaner hadn’t heard anything; presumably the same cleaner who left the bathroom drains so full of hair that it overflowed into the living area! Excuses kept flowing – management team out to lunch (I’ll say!), no one available to come out etc. Rude and abrasive enough to say there's not much they can do about it because they are based in Pyrmont! The management rep we spoke to was abrasive and borderline hostile which was amazing to us as we started out in the spirit of alerting them to an issue rather than making a big deal (as accommodation renters ourselves we would certainly want to know about any issues before they escalated). To top it all, despite the management company implying that this was a non-issue, we discovered that we weren’t the first to report the clanging. They had already been alerted by other guests two days earlier but just didn’t care enough to get someone to just open up the attic hatch and take a look. The lobby roof leaked heavily onto a tiled floor which created a very slippery hazard. Perhaps it was the prospect of material damage to the building which finally led to a maintenance visit from a plumber. BTW, the plumber was booked on the basis of our describing the sound as two pipes banging into each other. This was not a diagnosis, merely a description of the sound and we said to the agent that it was pretty pointless booking a plumber (who couldn't come out for two days) when it was not guaranteed to be a plumbing issue. The plumber it turns out installed the original pipework, and it's all in plastic. The clanging was easily fixed (probably caused by the aircon fitters not closing two metal gates up on the roof) but the leaking had to wait. The overall impression is of an attempt to get a premium price through decent decoration and a few signature fittings but a lack of understanding that premium price should also be linked with premium service.
