Reviewed 27 March 2017

We were very impressed with the City Towers. The owners were extremely helpful and went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. They also answered our questions about interesting places within walking distance and places to eat. We would definitely recommend City Towers. The room was spacious, the bed comfortable, and we had an outside patio which was lovely.

Stayed: February 2017

Reviewed 25 October 2016 via mobile

My husband and I landed from Canada very early in the morning after a long, nearly sleepless flight. We entertained ourselves quite well for a number of hours but finally felt we needed to brush our teeth and have a shower. City Towers' hosts, Carol and David, out of the goodness of their hearts went out of their way to prioritize preparing our room so they could let us in early. We are so grateful for their kindness!

The room was quiet despite the construction across the parking lot. It was clean and had enough towels. The bed was a bit too soft, but still okay. The info booklet provided in our room was very helpful in assisting us to find something as basic as a grocery store. City Towers' location is good. It is very close to the CBD, a number of parks, buses and a train station. Compared to other places we looked into, City Towers was very good value.

Because our hosts were so very kind we hesitate to say anything but we do have one grumble. The WiFi did not work very well - slow, with a tendency to drop out. This wouldn't be so bad if it were included in the price of the room but it wasn't; there was an additional charge for the WiFi.

In summary, we would stay here again. Can't give a better recommendation than that.

Warm welcome. We stayed two nights. The apartment was never serviced while we were there. Two of us had one small towel each from Monday afternoon till Wednesday 10am. I thought they must have overlooked us but when I told the man at checkout time he said they don't service rooms if you stay for two nights. He wasn't as warm as the lady I met on arrival. No hairdrier. Comfortable bed. Nice and close to Newmarket. Loud building construction outside both mornings. Good sized balcony.

Room Tip: Probably not ground level. Level above has good balcony.

Hi Lucy, thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on your stay at City Towers, we really appreciate it. We sometimes find it hard to convey to people that we are 'serviced apartments' and not a hotel, as we service rooms before arrival/weekly and provide fresh towels every 2 to 3 days (unless requested otherwise and we are more than happy to provide more frequent changes). Hairdryers and ironing boards/irons are all available for use. Your feedback tells us we need to do a better job of conveying our offering so there are no surprises or disappointments. Thank you.

We found our room and services provided were great during a period that required us to stay away from home due to medical procedure.
Location of apartment was close to shops and great places to eat out.
The free car parking was a bonus considering parking anywhere else especially at the hospital was no cheap cost....

Although there is nothing drastically negative about this property, I did find it to be tired as far as decor against others of the same or even cheaper nightly rates. I stayed here for a few nights, and it was comfortable and warm, and surprisingly quiet. It is in a good location for walking to the hospital and has a local mall also within walking distance. I did find the shower to be unclean, and a few damaged areas in the walls etc. Good towels were supplied, and the kitchen was well stocked with more than one could need, which was great as I cooked all my meals rather than eat out. Local takeaway restaurants/pizza places, are happy to deliver there, and the taxi company they recommended comes quickly. You have to pay for wifi, but it is not expensive. There is a coin operated laundry which is very handy. All in all, a good basic place to stay, in a convenient location.
