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

My husband and I stayed in this Hotel as it was close to the area our friends live. We have stayed in these apartments previously but that was some time ago. When we arrived we asked about upgrading from a studio apartment to a 1 bedroom. The Manager was more than helpful and only charged a minimum fee to upgrade.... More

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 was on the third floor with a balcony, it was so nice to have a space of my own with a kitchen I could really cook in. The Coles grocery store... More

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

We stayed at the Essendon Grand a couple of years ago on business and were so impressed we booked the meeting room to hold a conference for our clients as well as enjoy some of the highlights of Melbourne.
