The Blue Gum appartments are beyond repulsive. I have honestly never experienced anything quite like it. We arrived late to be hit with the foul stench of cigarette smoke. It was thick in the air and had been made worse with aerosol obviously used to try and mask the odour. We called after hrs management to be told that we...

Well where do I start... After being a loyal returning customer to blue gum apartments for the past 6 years taking two apartments a visit I've noticed not only the room conditions but the cleanliness factor drop very considerably to the point I feel the need to review to warn people of what they are about to book. After checking...

Basically a good sized two bedroom flat with modest furnishings and kitchen equipment. Good sized units with plenty of parking. The outside decks were dirty with accumulated leaves, decks were wet. Near main road, so had some road noise in afternoons and early mornings. Wifi was OK, with sufficient speed. Check in and out was completely without seeing anyone, all...

Reported this and the...

We stayed for one night and it was too long. The place was filthy! We had to wash 'clean' dishes before we could use them, everything was dirty and sticky, the oven didn't work and the blankets on the beds were so dirty and hairy, and there was dried snot on the bedroom wall....never again.

Stayed here for a few nights with 4 teenagers. Rooms were spacious and plenty of room for the kids to spread out. Shopping centre across the road with supermarkets, take aways and plenty of eateries for dinner with seating inside and outside. Having a full kitchen and laundry available would make it easy for extended stays. Everything booked and paid...

Very happy with our stay. Apartment was comfortable, clean & spacious. Everything you could want was provided. Close by to plenty of shops & places to eat. 2 adults, 3 children, even a safety gate was provided for the stairs. Would stay again.

Upon arrival we had to clean the floor as there were shards of glass, dust, crumbs and hair in the living/dining/kitchen area. The oven was unusable due to how dirty it was. The apartments could do with an upgrade. Also need to focus their attention to things like, ensuring there are working batteries in all remotes, ensuring there is enough...

I booked this apartment before I read the below reviews & do not understand why they are unfavourable. I'm thinking perhaps people want to keep this little gem to themselves? My 2 bed 2 bathroom apartment (unit 27) was very very large, extremely clean, ample inclusions incl free wifi, DVD, washer, dryer, iron, even had magazines to read. Fresh towels...

When we first walked in we did not realise what was waiting for us. The windows (3) had huge thick spiders webs on them (outside) with large amounts of gum leaves stuck in them which were the very first thing that we noticed,some of them covered nearly half of the window. The 2 bedroom windows had no screens on them...
