Spacious and well equipped, but too noisy and cold
Posted Jun 30, 2016 on Wotif
This spacious 1 bedroom apartment had so much going for it, the rooms were large and spacious, it had a fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, oven, all pots and pans, full size fridge/freezer, the bed and sofa were both very comfortable, the room was clean, the tv was easy to use and all channels worked, it had a split system r/c air conditioner, 2 spare blankets and a clock radio. But the noise from the traffic on the 6 lane Military Rd was deafening, and the apartment was freezing - these 2 factors spoilt it completely. I had the a/c on all night, it was pre-set to 30 deg heat, but made little impact on the temperature of the apartment, it was a particularly cold night in Sydney (6 deg), but I expect more from a hotel room - I ended up "wearing" one of the blankets in front of the tv to keep warm. The rooms at the back of the building might be better, but I was on the 7th floor at the front and even that far up, the noise was extremely loud. I tried ear plugs but they had little impact. The traffic seemed to ease off around 11pm, but started up in earnest around 4:30am. Please advise the owners of all rooms facing Military Rd to put double glazing on all glass windows and doors facing the road.
