My family rented 2 - two bedroom apartments for six nights. We live in Brisbane and came down for a relatives wedding. We decided in the middle of Winter we needed somewhere warm and comfortable to stay, home away from home, and the convenience of shops near by with transport. With Punthill Essendon we found all of our goals were... More

The rooms are average hotel sized. They are very clean and have everything you need. The guy on reception is very helpful and nothing is too much for him. There's a Coles next door. Quite a few restaurants all within close vicinity. I would fully recommend Creme across the road for breakfast.

Dear Tracey W, Thank you for your review of Punthill Essendon. It sounds like you may have stayed in a studio apartment for this visit; if you are after a more spacious apartment next time, you may like to book an one-bedroom apartment, which has a separate bedroom from the living/kitchen area. The team will be delighted that you had... More

The location is excellent with a pub (great food), good cafes and restaurants and supermarket and shops within walking distance. The onsite restaurant is also good.

Arrived quite late due to horrendous storm at Melbourne airport; reception was closed but there is coded access which was easy to follow. Carpark underground (very welcome) and perfectly adequate. We had a 2 bedroom apartment, quite spacious, well appointed. Two bathrooms as well, and the kitchen was fine, except I wish for once staff would fill up the ice... More

Dear Ozwitch, Thank you for your review of Punthill Essendon. We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay. Punthill Essendon is a terrific property, with excellent access to the airport. With regard to ice trays, due to health and safety regulations, hotel providers cannot fill the trays. We look forward to welcoming you back to Punthill in the future.... More

I stayed here for a week for a business trip. Great studio apartment with views of main street in essendon. Room is neat, clean and tidy.

I stayed at Punthill for 9 days in October; It felt like home, everything was right there, the decor is very Ikea like, but the bed was wonderful.

I had mixed feelings about staying here as I thought it would be noisy but I was pleasantly surprised. The old buildings were renovated but still a lot of the charm from days gone by. Ask for a rear courtyard view for the quietest rooms. The beds are comfortable and Sleep came easy. The kitchen was well appointed and convenient.... More
