Booked a 2 bedroom townhouse last minute for 3 of us, for a mercy dash visit to the area. Emailed to try to change to a Standard 2 bedroom apartment when I realised the townhouse has stairs my father would not be able to climb, and Joyce rang back almost immediately to confirm the change with no penalty. The next... More

We stayed in a basic and spacious 1 bedroom apartment in this old style motel, with a comfortable bed. However the free wifi did not connect, there had been only perfunctory cleaning, and kitchen equipment was minimal, The reception was helpful and the motel was close to train and shops. It suited our needs for a 2 night stay.

The Carnegie is old but good value. We came to Melbourne for the ICC cricket final. We hired out one of the town houses which have full facilities and would be excellent for families. Close to shops, rail and many restaurants of different nationalities. It really fitted the bill for us and we trained to and from the MCG with... More

We were recommended this motel to stay during the New Year period because it is close to Chadstone Shopping Centre and with reasonable rate. We checked the web site and it looks good from the photos, however in reality the place does not look even close. We booked 4 apartments and all but one apartment are dirty and smelly. There...

We stayed here recently after needing to be in Melbourne overnight. My husband booked this accommodation as it sounded basic but was centrally located for our event. However when we arrived the room was very disappointing. The shower was mouldy, the room smelt of smoke and the carpets were stained. I was horrified by the overall condition of the place,... More

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment. The bathroom was in need of some serious renovation work. The beds were comfortable and the linen was clean, although the bedrooms themselves were quite dirty. We moved some furniture around in the bedrooms so that my toddler couldn't fall off the bed - the carpets were filthy in places and the beds... More

This motel is in need of a birthday. I recall it being refurbished some years back but it needs some money spending on it. Rooms and furniture are tired. The suite sizes are good with a small kitchen but still tired.

Stayed there with family for 3 nights. Overall satisfied with the stay. Bread toaster and micro wave were of good use. Free wifi was an added advantage, though the speed was not that much. Good locality too.

Awful, carpet dirty and not vacuumed, not all pillow cases had been changed, bathroom old and grotty, cupboard and fridge grotty, air conditioner filthy dirty and was a waste of time having it on, very very disappointed as we were sent there by staff from Cabrini Hospital.
