Graham Apartments Hobart

Graham Court Apartments in 15 Pirie Street, Hobart are located in a very handy area close to Clavary Hostpital in Lenah Valley Road. We booked a 2 Bedroom apartment which is advertised to Sleep up to 5. the room had 2 bedrooms and a seperate bathroom, a large fridge and most utensils one would need for an extended stay. There was a double bed in the first bedroom and the second had a single bed and bunk beds. Parking is available on site, usually very close to the room. The room was clean.

Rydges Sydney Airport


The Rydges Sydney Airport is conveniently located right at the Sydney International Airport at 8 Arrivals Court, Sydney International Airport.

We were arriving back in Sydney late  from Auckland and booked the Rydges Sydney Airport for one night. Checkin was a breeze, the room was clean, comfortable and modern. Breakfast downstairs the next morning offered a very wide selection that would have something to suit everyone.

Voyager Apartments Taupo


The Voyager Aprtments are located at 9 Tui Street Taupo New Zealand. The 2 bedroom apartment we were allocated for 2 nights was large and fairly modern. Unfortunately the room was not at all that clean. There were stains and marks on bed spreads for example and after using the spa bath there was water dripping through the downstairs ceiling. The apartment was 3 levels with carparking below, a kitchen and living area on level one and two bedrooms with a bathroom and spa were on the upper level. a pleasnt balcony area with outdoor seating led off the living area.

Regal Palms 5 Star City Resort Rotorua NZ


The Regal Palms 5 Star City Resort is located at 350 Fenton Street , Rotorua 3010, New Zealand. This is around 5 to 10 minutes walking from the center of Rotorua. The property is a two level motel style with parking spaces outside rooms. The Superior Studio room booked was large and ours was on the first floor. There was a little bit of noise from other guests using the stairs right outside this room but it was not too bad. The room had a spa which was not used.

Novotel Auckland Airport

Arriving late in Auckland airport this hotel was booked for the first night. If you are arriving on a late flight, or wish to stay close to Auckland Airport the night before departing Auckland this hotel is in an excellent location, within the airport area and right across the road from the international airport concourse.

The room booked was a Superior Room, 1 King Bed

Stamford Plaza Sydney Airport, Mascot


The Stamford Plaza Sydney Airport, Mascot is located very close, just a short walk from the Sydney airport domestic terminal.

Our recent stay followed a late arrival back into Sydney from Brisbane. It is only 5 to 10 minutes walk from the Sydney domestic terminal to this hotel. The superior king room was modern, spacious, clean and quiet. The lounge area downstairs has a great atmosphere.

Mobile Phone SMS Security

When I first began to encounter SMS validation as a security measure it really annoyed me because I find it extremely presumptuous that any system developer would assume that everyone has mobile phone service or even the fact that everyone might actually have a mobile phone.

There is zero mobile phone service where I work and live and the location is less than 56 kilometers from the Sydney Harbour Bridge. The closest mobile signal means a drive in the car for 20 minutes each way or a rugged climb through bush up the side of a mountain which also takes 20 minutes or more each way.
