I stayed at this Motel with my daughter to attend a Funeral. We were due to arrive at around 7:30pm Sunday night, and received a phone call from the Manager to remind us that the Reception closed at 9pm. I thought this quite efficient and appreciated the call. The room was a twin and quite small, however very very comfortable.... More

It served the purpose. Close to Airport for an early morning start. Would have liked a ground floor unit as I am "a certain age" and climbing steep stairs with luggage and up and down to gather forgotten items from car is not my idea of a restful time!

Booking was easy to do and no dramas on arrival. The front-of-house staff are efficient and obliging. Nothing seems to be a trouble for them. While the outward appearance seems dated, the rooms are clean, comfortable and the re-furbishment has been tastefully carried out. There is the odd, small sign that the place is rather old but, on the whole,... More

This hotel is situated on very busy street with few convenient services for walkers nearby. The rooms were small, dated but clean and quiet (given the street noise!) The hotel restaurant provided varied excellent meals with great service and daily specials. For a one night stay between flights, it worked for us but we would not use it as base... More

Great location - close to both tram and train so getting from one place to the next without a car was very easy. My flight arrived hours before check-in, but Jennifer, one of the hotel staff, was very kind and had a room available for me by 11:30am on a very busy weekend. The room was simple and clean, and...

I was absolutely disgusted in the cleanliness of this place. Walls, doors, light switches, shower. Window sill to name a few..I called the night manager and all he could say was you'll have to wait until the morning!!! Too late...I left the feedback form filled out with my concerns and have had no response... It was $140 for the night..... More

Dear Lisa. It is with regret that I read a poor review of our property on a recent stay with us. Records indicate you checked in before 3 pm on the day of arrival and your complaint with my Front Office receptionist was made at 8.30 pm. Unfortunately had your complaint been lodged within 30 minutes of arrival another room... More

We had a function at Essendon airport and chose the place with the better reviews in the area. It is an older style motel and the room layout is unusual. It would have been quite large if the additional single bed had been removed, but it certainly wasn't claustrophobic. The bathroom was clean - very important to me. Breakfast room... More

This is an old motel, so don't expect the latest mod-cons, but for the price it's pretty good value. The rooms are old and need updating, but they are clean. The beds aren't that comfortable, and like most hotels of this era, the whole place could use a refurbishment. But we felt secure and the hotel is only a short... More

Good morning. Many thanks for your response. Although the property is of older design, we endeavor to keep our prices at a very competitive level for the traveling public. Our superior location and proximity to public transport gives us the edge. More

We stayed four days in a self-contained apartment above reception. Sure it was not new, but it has been recently recarpeted and was clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Beds were comfortable and despite being along the road front, there was no appreciable noise. 2 minutes stroll to the tram stop, 5 to the local shops. Good value... More
