We stayed in apartment12. While the room looked clean and the furniture was newish, the place had a musty closed up smell. Then when you looked closer there was dirt all around; e.g. A jelly bean on the floor in the bath room, socks from previous visitors in the dryer and washing machine, they didn't even match! After our first... More

stayed here when i was in town for a wedding, there would have been nothing wrong with the place if it was $30 cheaper, but it was pretty expensive for nothing special. That said i never stay in hotel in Australia so this could have been well priced... i don't know, the price seemed a bit steep for the location

We arrived by car, so the trade-off was a suburban motel versus expensive in-town hotel with parking charges. From here, a 30-minute drive to the city centre with toll charges and A$8 parking charge... More

Dear Sir. We are sorry you were not complimentary of the room allocated. Microwave ovens are only available in our Serviced Apartment section, not the Motel rooms. Most international tourists believe Melbourne is over priced which is unfortunate. Best wishes. More

We stayed here as were visiting some friends close by. Driving into the city didn't take long, unsure how long it would have taken on the tram or train - although it is located walking distance to either. A few nice cafes within 5-10 mins walk and Coles about 10-15 min walk or 2 min drive. Place was clean but... More

I stayed on a quick business trip. There is not a lot you can do with an ageing hotel unfortunately and this one seemed well below the normal Best Western standard. Off road parking was good and the warm peanuts from the foyer were excellent, as was the service...but the room sadly was just so 70's motel. It was clean... More
